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: Why don’t you just quit iPhone

If Mark E Smith isn’t enough to warn you of the perils of iPhones then maybe Girl Band might convince you of the dangers of working in children’s television?

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: Double decker bus

Finally! The Dominican Morrissey has finally got around to covering The Smiths!!!

And on the subject of double decker buses here’s the new one from Sleaford Mods.

The RDU transmitter was throwing a wobbly today so there’s a few glitches in the audio. If you don’t listen too closely everything will sound just fine…
