The Show: No name. Just a number. 027 242 8635.

As always, every track we play on the show is a hit, so it’s hard to pick favourites. But in these post-Covid times of uncertain futures allow us to recommend the new DARKSPACE fundraiser compilation which celebrates two of Ōtautahi’s premier music venues, Darkroom and Space Academy. It’s almost like being back at gigs.

And on with the show…

The Show: I’ve made a rod for my own back.

Stewart Lee decrying his own CD filing system.

Can we make a case for The Boo Radleys being filed in the Britpop shoebox, alongside such luminaries as Bennet, Jocasta and Thurman? Let’s not just limit them to Liverpool and Post-Punk / C86 / early Creation / Shoegaze. Here’s the proof – a 67% Britpop rating (courtesy of Top Trumps):
