The Show: Never mind the NRA. What about the GOA, the NAGR, the SAF and, of course, the JPFO?*

If, like us, you’re fed up with the NRA because they don’t go far enough in protecting the 2nd amendment rights of our Trans-Pacific cousins, then let us introduce you to the Gun Owners Of America, the National Association for Gun Rights, the Second Amendment Foundation and, our favourite, Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership (motto: “You do NOT have to be Jewish to join us!“).

Listen to those NRA socialist weasels kowtowing to authoritarian police bureaucrats in the YouTube clips we play during today’s show.

Another thing we can’t all agree on is the gender pay gap, judging by the comments on the “77” video from Alice Bag.

The Show: Farewell 2015

Last show of the year. We’ll be back some time in January. This will give Fraserhead some time to tidy up and organise his elephant’s graveyard of a studio which contains lots of DJ toys that he can’t figure out how to use properly. See evidence below.

The untidy studio at The Joint HQ.

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.
