Yes, we have been lacking in Aussie music content of late, but that’s because it’s still New Zealand Music Month! The first half of the show is dedicated to showcasing three more classic Flying Nun Records artists introducing Wax Chattels and Blazing Shade. We also air the brand new single from Jon Toogood’s side-project The Adults, called ‘Bloodlines’ which is inspired by a Sudanese tradition known as Aghani Al-Banat, in which female musicians express resistance to patriarchy. We also air tracks from three of the nominees from the recent Indigenous Music Awards in Canada – Midnight Shine, Kristi Lane Sinclair and Snotty Nose Rez Kids.

* Featuring D.O.A *

Given it’s May Day today, it’s fitting to return to the music of D.O.A. Joe Keithley formed this politically aware and now long-running hard-core band in 1978. And as you will hear from the two tracks we play from their recent live album ‘Welcome To Chinatown’, the current version of the band is as blistering as ever. The years have also not diminished the power of Keithley’s progressive lyrical attack. Keep an ear out for more new music from D.O.A before the year is out.

And it’s New Zealand Music Month!  So we kick off the celebrations with two new tracks apiece from established Kiwi bands Scalper and Shihad, and introduce listeners to quality new AAA Records signing Radioglo.

* Featuring the music of The Seekers *

In keeping with the regular format of this show, we begin with featuring some older Australian music, this week in the form of three classics from easy-listening folk act The Seekers, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2012.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that this five-piece, fronted by Judith Durham, have sold millions and albums and in the mid-60s were even competing with heavy-weights like The Rolling Stones on the UK albums charts. The band broke up only 6 years after the initial whirl-wind of international acclaim that began shortly after the band’s inception.
