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.
We’re still denied access to the RDU studios after last weekend’s earthquake so no show again.
In the meantime why not listen to some proper DJ’s. Here’s Mary Anne Hobbs final radio broadcast for BBC Radio 1 that went out earlier this week. Entitled “Mary Anne’s Send Off Show“, it includes a special farewell collaborative mix from Kode9 and Burial.

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.
