Baby dragons and outsize divas scale the heights of Erko's iconic Imperial Hotel each Sunday, as an eclectic array of sounds play in the beautiful early summer air.
It's free (and rare) to have the opportunity to transcend earthly cares on such a sunny/shady rooftop - but it's there for the taking and making. Join me for a five hour bracket that begins at 2PM before travelling into twilight.

Saturday October the 3rd ~
The entire Jack Off team were blown away by the support we received from listeners during our annual supporter drive last week, some truly heartfelt tributes were exchanged.
Such genuine appreciation is always a fuel for further work. This year it meant even more, considering how tough things are - and how much worse finances may yet get.
Thank you for being so strong, courageous, communicative and sensitive. We will redouble our efforts, on behalf of the station and the community we serve, from 3 til 5PM this Saturday.
Tuesday October the 6th ~
Totally F*ct Trivia is a comical portal into the morbid mortal truths that lie behind what we are routinely presented with by political 'leaders' and captive media these days.
Julian Morrow is the ideal bullshit detector / host for such an enterprise - and Giant Dwarf the perfect venue to facilitate participation in this canny quiz.
Capacity onsite has just doubled to 50% of the pre-COVID limit - and anyone who prefers to play from the comfort of home can do so.
I provide thematic musical cues for every question by conjuring them up in real-time, a pretty hilarious challenge for me personally.
Join us at 6.30PM and you'll see/hear what I mean!
Spiritual surgery via song, for you and everyone.
Friday September the 25th ~
Oceanic interludes and vast sonic vistas over the Eastern seabord, all via the easily-accessed front bar of The Paddington. 5 til 9PM. Completely free.
Saturday September the 26th ~
Jack Off delves deep to access collective compassion and mystique, working wonders once a year during supporter drive to Bring It On Home for yr local champion of emerging arts and culture, FBi Radio.
Whilst the entire affair this year is necessarily more online and distanced than usual, we've been granted special dispensation to have all three rotating producers (thank you Isabel, Hugh and James) present in the station simultaneously.
This is the key annual instance where we shamelessly grant requests whilst plugging the bands and businesses of the lovely listeners who help us survive. But this year, in addition to personally thanking you and responding to yr stated wishes via our web portal, we're also seeking to talk to you directly.
2020 has been so intense, so raw and real, so tragic and humane, stark and sweet. I've felt this in the most palpable way while broadcasting throughout the pandemic. It has made me even more profoundly grateful for our beautiful community and this heroic little radio station.
So rather than banging on myself as usual I genuinely want to share the air with our bright and brilliant listeners. Thus I invite you to follow in the footsteps of both our older regular texters and the several four-year-olds who've already spoken on air this year. Kindly call 83322999 between 3 and 5PM and I will put you directly to air.
I trust you. I love you. FBi needs you and we are all improved by the presence of each other.
Yr welcome to speak of anything you wish of course - but I'd especially love to hear what FBi has done for you, particularly of late.
And I do want to open up the airwaves to even more children - so parents, if yr kids are keen to say g'day and shoot the Shit live with me please make them feel free.
Right now we need regeneration across the board. Heartfelt humour, curiosity and glee. We're opening this up entirely. Give us a shout!
Also I should mention, one lucky listener who joins or renews as a supporter before 4.30PM will receive one of our best day prizes yet: not only a year's subscription to The Saturday Paper but a case of delicious Italian-inspired wines from the Adelaide Hills courtesy of Unico Zelo.
Enter yr details here by at half past 4 on Saturday arvo to be in the running. I wanna give it to you!
