The Show: Chapeau Melon et Bottes de Cuir

RIP Patrick Macnee (1922-2015)

With Fraserhead recently regaining his RDU DJ licence we’ve had various professionals drop into the show to audit and assess our performance. Yesterday it was the turn of Yvnalesca* to swing by and make sure we were doing the show properly. Ironically the biggest balls up was when we plugged Yvnalesca’s Sunday afternoon set at Civil & Naval​. Fraserhead kept calling the bar “Civil & Union”. Apologies. Anyway, head on down to Civil & Union Naval in Lyttelton tomorrow afternoon for some mellow beats.

* Catch Yvnalesca, Scheme and Sheldon Williams on RDU’s newest show – HEDSPACE, Wednesdays 6pm-7.30pm, for their take on techno.

** UPDATE: Since this incident came to light RDU management have reassessed Fraserhead’s DJ licence and he will remain on a restricted licence for the next 6 months.

The Show: Heaven to hell in a heartbeat

Thanks to MUDD from Soundcheck for inadvertently giving us the title of today’s show when, during an unexpected visit to the RDUnit, he described his reaction to the tunes we like to play on the radio.

The Show: 2001: A Retro Odyssey

Where Fraserhead discovers he’s playing the same artists as he was back when the show started in 2001 and where The Herb Whisperer finds he has too many 9+ minute tracks for comfort.
