heard fortnightly, next on air Tue 22 Feb 11, 3:00am to 7:00am
In 2006, Greg the progressive sound seeker, Mara the emotional [& fickle] selecta & Gareth the supreme holder of music [and associated trivia] linked musical arms and never looked back.
Together, they present Barrel of Monkeys - a fortnightly music lover’s radio show on PBS.
Barrel of Monkeys is a 4 hour, cross-genre bonanza featuring the finest sounds around without the hype or hot air. There’s feature albums, feature artists, interviews, one hit wonders, and loads of great tracks with a healthy dash of trivia. Previous interviewees include Crystal Thomas, Institut Polaire, The Thod, Pete Ross & Alela Diane.
Regular segments include:
Delving into the bowels of the CD collection to find something embarrassingly bad, but loved regardless.
The bracket to redeem the selector for 'Secret Shame'.
You are welcome to send in your own secret shame/redemption tracks. Just email us.
Songs straight from the artist to the airwaves. It could be the best thing you've never heard.... or the worst..or somewhere in between. It's FRESH and direct to you!
So if you’ve got an open mind and love great music, tune into Barrel of Monkeys alternating Tuesdays 2:00am-6:00am.
