* 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.

We start the show off with two tracks a piece from New Zealand indie legends Graeme Downes (The Verlaines) and Dimmer, featuring Shayne Carter of the groundbreaking Straightjacket Fits.

The remainder of the show is dedicated to catching up on some fantastic new Cancon, including the brand new New Pornographers single!

* Happy Valentines Day! *

Marty Willson-Piper was one half of the superb dual guitar attack of legendary band The Church, from 1980 until just last year, before the shock announcement that he was being replaced by ex-Powderfinger guitarist Ian Haug, for the recording of The Church’s next LP. I discovered Marty’s 1988 solo release at a second hand shop in Victoria, BC recently. Today you can hear two lush tracks from this album, as well as a sampling from two of Marty’s other collaborations – Noctorum and MOAT. And don’t forget, you can dig deep at the website of Marty’s impressive In Deep Music Archive.

Our Valentine’s Day pick for today is the sublime and tender power-pop hit ‘Alone With You’ by The Sunnyboys.  The Sunnyboys sprang from nowhere to national prominence in Australian in 1981 with this single and subsequent album.  Tragically though, frontman and songwriter Jeremy Oxley was afflicted by schizophrenia, and the band derailed due to his erratic behaviour and substance use.  Amazingly though, they reformed for last year’s Dig It Up Festival hosted by The Hoodoo Gurus and all reports indicate Jeremy and the band were in blistering form.  Maybe there is time for them to reclaim their rightful place alongside the nation’s other great rock bands.
