What type of music can we expect to hear on your show?
A melting pot of alternative concoctions from new-wave innovators, classic punk rebels, art college intellectuals, post-punk popsters, angst-fuelled indie kids, and avant-garde wordsmiths.

Why do you like this music?
Because it excites us on so many levels.

What is the format of your show?
Live semi-acoustic sessions and interviews featuring the best unsigned local artists, mixed with a selection of our favourite alternative tunes from the past 40 years.

Why should we listen to your show?
Because you would be missing out on something really special if you didn’t.

How did your show come about?
We hollered and stamped our feet until we got it.

What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?
We can’t divulge information like that. We could tell you but we would have to kill you.

What has been you best on air moment?
Getting the gear to work.

What has been your worst/ most embarrassing on air moment?
I suspect it hasn’t happened yet.
