Gemma Syme takes over the controls

“Do I r-e-a-l-l-y have to get up early on a Saturday for this?”
Gemma Syme aka Instant Fantasy

We’re delighted to announce that Gemma Syme aka Instant Fantasy and host of RDU’s Te Ahi Top 10 will be taking over the controls of The Joint for the next three weeks while we take a little break.

Gemma says she’ll be playing all the hits from people like Leno Lovecraft, E+E, Lio, A G Cook, Andy Stott and Bobby Brown (but not the one you might think). Guests for the first week are Power Nap and DJ Daif (aka as Golden Axe) from AK/WGTN.

Gemma also sings on Shocking Pinks’ “St. Louis” – one of my favourite tracks from 2014. I would have asked her to autograph my iPod and “Guilt Mirrors” vinyl but I’m far too shy to do that sort of thing. Have a peek at the video below…

So tune in and hear how radio should be done properly.

The Show: Herb is overseas so Iggy drops in

The Herb Whisperer is away today.

In Melbourne. With 70,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Not with.

Near.

Behind a door.

Luckily Iggy Pop dropped in to discuss free music in a capitalist society. You can find out more about this at Mr Pop’s 2014 John Peel Lecture. The transcript is here if you want to skip to the juicy details. Food for thought.

I didn’t think the Nancy Whang / Etienne de Crecy version of “Comme Un Aigle” / “Like An Eagle” could be beat but how wrong I was. Have a peek below at the Michel Vedette version. Anyone know where we can buy silver disco shorts?

And here’s the playlist in full…
