  • "We were playing at Badlands a little while ago and music videos were playing up on the screen - Harpoon was playing, we just thought that's just one of the best Perth songs ever." @thelimbsperth are big fans of Jebediah, as any local music fan is. This morning's Slightly Odway was special for many reasons, Kevin Mitchell had just been in before the band, and it was David's first time playing on air since joining the band.

The four piece stopped by for Slightly Odway on Breakfast, covering Jebediah Harpoon.

  • The final View From Here in the 2018 series sees one of Perth's brightest stars, @carla_geneve play at one of the states most iconic and important buildings, @statelibrarywa 
There is something eerie and mysterious about a library once it has closed, the quietness takes on another level and who better to punctuate that then Carla Geneve, with her witty and wonderful take on the world.
Carla Geneve is a story teller, her lyrics tell us about the world around her and the perfectly sum up the West Australian experience in so many ways. Carla along with her band run through three songs on the third floor of the library with the Perth city skyline in the background.
Filmed on location with thanks to State Library of Western Australia.

The View From Here is supported by the Community Broadcasting Foundation.
  • This weeks RTRFM feature comes from @lowtheband with Double Negative. 
In typical unpredictable fashion, Low haven't played it safe by turning an album of sounds we've come to know and love, instead opting to craft a release featuring 12 tracks of atmospheric, ethereal, distorted and static drenched alternative sounds. Still based around husband-and-wife duo Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker's vocal harmonies that are buried deep in the mix, Double Negative somehow manages to ""sound like"" 2018 - loud and commanding, yet minimalistic, and seemingly struggling with itself, as an organised chaos of noise threatens to overpower the mix at every moment. 
After 25 years and 12 albums, a band could be forgiven for resting on their laurels a bit and playing to fan favourite tropes - but not Low, now the question is what comes next for the legendary trio..."
  • This week's local feature is Grand Champion from @peterbibbymusicband .

It's been 4 long years since Perth's own modern true blue troubadour blew us all away with his debut album Butcher/Hairstylist/Beautician, but he's finally back with his sophomore LP Grand Champion - an album that very nearly didn't see the light of day. 
Recorded primarily in Perth, the finishing of Grand Champion was derailed by a trip across the Nullarbor that was supposed to take 2 weeks - it ended up taking 2 months... Luckily for us Bibby managed to finish the album off, and what an album it is. Taking trebly, fuzzed out guitars and paring them with fiddles, honky tonk piano and organs belting out alt-country and folk influenced sounds proved to be the perfect accompaniment for the true star of Grand Champion - Bibby's signature vocals, and knack for entertaining story telling through song.
  • Make sure you're locked in to 92.1 for Rockin' the Roots this afternoon from 4PM-6PM, AWST. We'll be joined by special guests, country-blues duo Short & Curly out of Bridgetown for a chat and a live performance in the studio.
  • 🎉🎉We have a extended the deadline for Radiothon payments. 🎉🎉 You now have until October 7 to pay your pledge or sign up to go in the draw for one of our amazing Radiothon prizes. 
You could win a southwest getaway, including a stay at Riverglen Chalets in Margaret River and a gin master class from the Giniversity.
