Sunday 2pm – 4pm

I Have been doing Americana Show since 1993 back when it was called The Western Beat show up in the University grounds. There I had the great joy in interviewing Steve Earle ,Calexico ,Tony Jo White, OCMS and many many more.

We were voted Best Radio Show by Capital Times some time ago and have a good international following as well And Golden (Steve Hinderwell]) is our other DJ,  he can be found groaning about the latest album at slowBoat Records during the day.

Mr Hi-Fidelity and our beloved Miss Juliet give us a Female perspective on country songs who have been doing the Show on alternate Sundays for over ten years. We have been playing non hat country – everything from Johnny cash, Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Emmylou thru to new acts that are both Local and international.

A bit about me..

I ran a Record shop in the mid 70’s and ended up at RCA Melbourne the year Elvis died, around this time I toured with Lou Reed and got arrested alongside Iggy Pop.

Further touring with John Denver, The Stranglers, Blondie, Hunter.S and many more.

Nick Cave played at my 21st and Barry Saunders at my 50th, I’ve been loving a good song and partaking in the music Industry for well over 30 years.

My faves are Townes Van Zandt, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tim Buckley and so many hundreds more..

For the sake of the song.

Shady.
