IT’S MOVING DAY!

We are (still) relocating the studios to the Mangaroa Valley! We will be off the air for a few days whilst we move our studios and gear from Papakowhai to Mangaroa.  Please accept our apologies for the silence, but we will be returning again soon to bring you the best in world-class indie rock, just as we have been for almost 20 years!  Beginning 22nd June.  Thank you for your patience.  The studio is operational but the FM & Internet broadcasts are still down. Please accept our humblest apologies and rest assured we WILL be back soon! **UPDATE** 12/07/18 –  We are currently still working to get back on the air.   There have been a few roadblocks to provisioning services to the new studios, in spite of our booking the move months in advance, thanks Spark NZ and others! 🙁  Then if that wasn’t enough drama, limbs have fallen and taken out the telecom lines to the studio.  That requires another level of cat herding to get all of the moving parts working together. </p><p>Good news!  The cats have been herded and it looks like we have a target date to be back on the air.  Tentatively we are scheduled to have all of the work completed by <strong>Wednesday 18/07/18</strong> and we look to be back up and jamming the free world, one person at a time soon afterwards.  <em>*fingers crossed* </em></p> **UPDATE** 23/07/2018 – We are back on the air again!  Finally. ...

Under The Radar

Under The Radar

New Music, Old Favorites, Buried Treasures, Imports and Indies. Indie rock [ˈin-dē ˈräk] comes from “independent,” describes the small and relatively low-budget labels on which it is released and the do-it-yourself attitude of the bands and artists involved. Although distribution deals are often struck with major corporate companies, these labels and the bands they host have attempted to retain their autonomy, leaving them free to explore sounds, emotions and subjects of limited appeal to large, mainstream audiences.  Your host Mark Copeland presents music that’s made for the radio, that corporate & commercial radio tends to ignore, direct from the Motor City, Detroit MI!

The 80s Underground

Truly a lost genre of radio programming until now… Underground music [ˌən-dər-ˈgrau̇nd ˈmyü-zik] comprises musical genres beyond mainstream culture. Any song that is not being legally commercialized is considered underground. Such music may tend to express common ideals, such as high regard for sincerity and intimacy, freedom of creative expression as opposed to the highly formulaic composition of commercial music, and appreciation of artistic individuality as opposed to conformity to current mainstream trends. The 80s Underground resurrects the best in 80’s Indie, College, Punk, Post-punk, New wave, and Modern rock. Your host Jeff Shelton devotes a concentrated two hours each week to bring you the best in completely Underground 80’s rock. For showtimes check out our live programme...

The Power Pop Show

The Power Pop Show

If it rocks AND your mom likes it, it’s probably power pop! Power pop [ˈpau̇(-ə)r ˈpäp]  is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed. The credo of the Power Pop Show is simple: bring quality, modern & classic melodically-driven rock to people who enjoy music. Your host Jeff Shelton meets in the middle, where melody and rock peacefully co-exist. For showtimes check out our live programme schedule! More...
