A weekly music based show on Thursday evenings between 11pm - 12am. A sharing of a record collection, a journey through old favourites, recommendations, discoveries from the depths of the inter web, record shop finds and current musical obsessions.
Exploring but not limited to the following musical worlds:
A prominent feature of New Zealand guitar pop, post punk and DIY weirdness.
"Stories from the Australian Underground" with a focus on the mid 70s to late 80s and beyond. Punk, post punk, folk freaks and indie releases. The Australian sounds will be rounded out with a smattering of the current Australian underground hustle.
Good roots/country music. Poetry from the dust and highways. Not what you may come across today, which as Tom Petty said ‘is basically a bad rock band with a fiddle’! From Hank to Townes to Emmylou and plenty of ‘Cosmic American Music’.
British and American folk, tied in with some good old blues. Plenty of Chicago Chess Record sounds with a journey down the Mississippi River to the northern hill country of Mississippi for some dirty country blues finishing with a side trip to Texas for some Lightnin’ Hopkins licks.
Some weeks may also feature a sprinkling of east cost hip hop, jazz, Ethiopian grooves (good for the soul), African desert blues and Greek Rebetika folk music from the depths of Asia Minor. Psych, garage rock to proto-punk, indie, shoe-gaze, dream pop and general noise. Blah blah blah.
See ya on the airwaves.
