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: This song is for you…

This is not a Christmas special.

It’s definitely NOT a Christmas special but we do start proceedings with THE FALL’S peerless version of JINGLE BELL ROCK. If you can handle that opening salvo you’ll be rewarded with many seasonal gifts such as a sneaky threesome from Otāutahi Christchurch label Club Unique, some dark synths from Distant Stars, beautiful Parisian electro pop via Il Est Vilaine plus too many others to name.

And on with the show…

The Show: Regifting

Whilst The Joint enjoys what is left of the Holidays we’re digging into the archives to present a Christmas mix from 2010. We have no recollection of making this or the reasons why it was made. We don’t think it was ever broadcast on any terrestrial or web based radio station.

Our (re)gift to you.

The Show: Game over

game-over

Greetings friends, family, whānau.

Today is our last show before we head off on an indefinite sabbatical. Other commitments mean we need to take a break for a while.

The Joint first broadcast on RDU way back in July 2001 when the frequency was still 98.3FM. We started out on Sunday afternoons but after a while switched to Saturday afternoons. The reasons are lost in the mists of time.

By our really rough and unscientific calculations we reckon we’ve done 665 shows so far. That makes this final show today episode number 666. Not a shabby effort really. To put that in some completely unrelated context Ryan Giggs made 672 league appearances for Manchester United and David O’Leary made 558 league appearance for Arsenal.

Thank you for all your kind messages via Facebook, Twitter and the RDU text machine. It was a blast.

To paraphrase and plagiarise James Murphy…

Yeah, we lost our edge
The kids came up from behind
We lost our edge to the kids
From France and from London
And from Christchurch
But we were there
We lost our edge to better-looking people
With better ideas and more talent
And they’re actually really, really nice

Ka kite ano
