A craggy caper sonically saluting the GOAT/s.
Wednesday September the 20th ~
Silver linings are found freely during Swingin' at the Speakeasy. I spin from 10 til close way late.
Friday September the 22nd ~
Songs from the living heart and original custodians (pre-custody) get aired with steadfast intent and passion every time I play the Bob Hawke Beer and Leisure Centre. 8.30 til 11.30. Also always free.
Saturday September the 23rd ~
Jack Off is the only program to have endured on Free Broadcast Incorporated from the very first week of the official birthday of the station 20 years ago.
Not only that, we pre-date that particular launch too, via years of programs in the test broadcasts that secured us the licence, all in the same timeslot we continue to serve the community from: 3 til 5 on Saturday arvos.
Currently various macro forces - from online algorhythmic impacts on radio as a medium, to chronic escalations in the cost of living - are conspiring to endanger our ability to maintain the place at all, let alone grow.
I've dedicated my (rather immature) adult life to the joint so I humbly beg you to dig deep, if you are able, to pledge support this Saturday.
All of the volunteers (and staff) also financially contribute, in the exact same way we annually request of our listeners - despite the obvious difficulty of doing so whilst giving up so much time, for no pay, in a city like Sydney today.
You can sign up online here but the best bet is to call 90306945 so that we can get more of an idea of what you care for and need out of our portal - and then profusely thank you directly (not to mention shower you with prizes). Leah Senior will also join us to chat and sing live!
Afterwards I'll again ascend to Dean and Nancy on 22, hopefully celebrating continuing to make something of a difference with yr always invaluable help. If you'd like to join me there to raise a toast swing by between 9 and half 12. It's free!
