Earthquake stops play

Minimal earthquake damage 4 September 2010
Very minimal earthquake damage indeed at Fraserhead's place !!!

No show today sorry. However, The Herb Whisperer has put arranged something for your listening pleasure.

Last Saturday’s earthquake means that the RDU studios are off limits. Hopefully we’ll be back on air next Saturday. RDU is still broadcasting an automated playlist.

Keep up to date with RDU happenings at www.facebook.com/RDU985FM.

Bit of a bummer really because Tommy Ill was popping into the show today for a chat about life on tour, his new album, and his show tonight. The bad news is that Goodbye Blue Monday is still closed but the good news is that the gig has been shifted to Al’s Bar.

In case you missed it first time round, here’s Tom Cosm’s Official Christchurch 2010 Earthquake Tune

Force Majeure

There was no show today and therefore no playlist, tweets or podcast to accompany it. For our NZ audience the reason is obvious, but for the literally tens of listeners overseas who may not be aware, Christchurch was hit by an earthquake today. We’re all hunkering down bracing ourselves for the magnitude 6 after-shock we’ve been promised.

Personally I think it was my promise / threat to play country music on yesterday’s blog – there’s nothing the genre likes better than some misfortune, tragedy or epic event to get it’s teeth stuck into.
