One last glimpse - after a long, strange year.
Wednesday December the 28th ~
I'll start, like clockwork, at Palmer & Co by 10PM tonight, spinning til around 1AM for free.
Friday December the 30th ~
By Friday I'll be all dolled-up for Maybe Sammy, playing between 9PM and 12.30AM, gratis.
Saturday December the 31st ~
During the many minutes between 3 and 5PM each Saturday I brainstorm emotional solutions to impossible-to-articulate issues via other people's audio out put via Jack Off on FBi Radio. Tune in.
Directly afterwards Sham DJs will marshall our collective consciousness, for the first time since the Wellington edition of Semi Permanent, in order to usher in the New Year at the ideal location for this annum, Dean and Nancy on 22.
We will kick off early (at 8PM) and run late (til 1AM), working from a beautiful booth in the main space for the first time so that we are really amongst the celebrations. There will also be shows from Sydney's Queen of Burlesque, Porcelain Alice.
Thank you so much for your careful and considered attention to these missives this year, it's always a privilege to receive such sophisticated songs and sentiments in reply. Of course the same goes for the myriad of marvellous messages we field via the text line whilst broadcasting, not to mention the tears, smiles and embraces shared during my live sets.
As this stunning planet struggles amidst an avoidable onslaught of human-wrought idiocy and woe I'm more committed than ever to a life in service of music, community and spirit. I deeply respect the courage and grace of the good folks holding the line, despite the travails of this time. Let's hope for a miraculous surmounting of our trials, vanquishing the present power of the death-peddlers who cruel it for the rest of life on Earth. It's an all or nothing equation at this point frankly.
Right now I wish you restorative rest, the love of friends and family, natural beauty and peace.

Wednesday December the 21st ~
The Swingin' at the Speakeasy Xmas Party scheduled for tonight at Palmer & Co. has been eclipsed by multiple private bookings so you'll not find any live fare there but still my bad self from 10PM.
Friday December the 23rd ~
Legit sky-rocketing success story Dean and Nancy on 22 ain't no gamble. Guaranteed quality. 9 til 12.30.
Saturday December the 24th ~
Jack Off on FBi Radio from 3 til 5PM then head to the Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre for Xmas Eve beers and Chinese tucker plus a shimmy to any number of dated audio artefacts courtesy of yours truly. I kick off at half 8 and wrap 30 minutes til midnight.
Your penultimate selection of suite sonics for 2022, as we perch on the cusp of wilder waters still.
Wednesday December the 14th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy shoots 10PM til 2AM. Free.
Friday December the 16th ~
Sin City Soirée celebrates summer in Sydney at the magnificent Hollywood Hotel with a final free-for-all shining forth between 9PM and 2AM. Dress less!
Saturday December the 17th ~
Jack Off emanated under the auspices of the inestimably lovely Johnny Seymour last week as I cavorted once more at the miraculous 30th Meredith Music Festival.
You can hear his beautiful selections (and my call reporting on the magic/drugs/nature/trauma/healing manifesting live at the Sup, from 33 mins in) here.
I'll be back on air between 3 and 5 this Saturday before heading to dinner and the Opera House to celebrate the birthday of my love whilst immersed in the music of Nick and Warren. Take care all xo

Monday December the 5th ~
This select festival gathering is now in the past.
Wednesday December the 7th ~
Swingin' at the Speakeasy is in the present. 10-2.
Saturday December the 10th ~
In the immediate future Jack Off will be hosted by Jonny Seymour so that I may quit work and instead return to the Supernatural Amphitheatre and Aunty's fulsome bosom.
Hopefully I'll be able to cross live between 3 and 5 with an eye-witness report on the monumental full circle (taking in the world's longest-lockdown, floods and war) that preceded the 30th Meredith Music Festival and how that plays out on the ground.
