Make sure you tune in on Wednesday night to hear some of Nelson-based composer Mike Beever’s recent piano recordings.
We’ll learn a little about the process and equipment that he uses, and some of the interesting ways his music has been used. Best of all, Mike’s kindly offered to give a download copy of the EP to one lucky listener.
One week tonight, the first show will go to air. I’ve been working away on the first script. There’ve been a few late nights, plenty of revisions, and whole sections I’ve ditched. I’m quite out of practice – an hour is a reasonable chunk of time to fill and I have to remember how to drive the desk. All part of the fun! Thanks to the crew At Fresh FM for their help and support, too.
The first show is a bit of a musical time machine ride. You’ll hear:
an early Douglas Lilburn piece;
a track from Lorde;
the first track recorded and produced entirely in New Zealand;
an unusual love song from Dunedin;
downbeat upbeat – two tracks – one a downer, the other to put a smile on your face;
details of some local gigs and releases – plus an interview if the cookie crumbles in the right direction.
