Presenter/s names: Jaimie Fennell of Rooster Records

Show time and day: Third Wednesday of each month 8-10pm

What type of music can we expect to hear on your show?
Psychedelic, progressive rock, folk, jazz, blues, soul, country, singer songwriter kinda thang.

Why do you like this music?
It speaks to me, touches my soul. I was born in ’64 so although I was around for most of it I wasn’t old enough to appreciate it and have been living in the past ever since.

What is the format of your show?
Songs and introductory chatter.

Why should we listen to your show?
There were soooooo many great bands and songs during that period that most people don’t know exist.  Besides, can you think of anything better to do on a Sunday afternoon?

How did your show come about?
I did a guest slot on Phonic FM which seemed to go down well, so here we are.

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?
I’ll let you know at a later date.

What has been you best on air moment?
Playing a tune for my five year old daughter who stayed up late to hear Dad on the radio.

What has been your worst/ most embarrassing on air moment?
None, yet.

Who is your favourite artist? Why?
Stephen Stills because he was involved in so much great music to come out of that period. They called him “Captain Manyhands“.

What is your all time favourite album? Why?
The very first album by Blood, Sweat & Tears called “Child Is The Father To Man“.  Kinda late sixties rock jazz with Al Kooper at the helm.  Perfect songs, arrangements and production.  Their later albums without Kooper were vastly inferior.  No doubt I’ll be subjecting listeners to a track or two.
