A late night talk show that begins when midnight strikes.
Special guest/s will hang out live in studio, providing good chat and occasional performances between tunes. There’ll be a different host each week bringing their own experimental flourishes to the table, which includes pre-recorded audio of conversations, spoken word performances, fiction/non-fiction readings, stand-up comedy, and sound collages.
Forget sleep, stay up, listen in and take the Midnight Special.
Tristan Fidler hosts and presents two hours of chat, improvisational music and movie recommendations. In the first hour, we welcome a musical trip comprised of Annika Moses, Beth Gosper and Shanae Campbell. They talk about studying at WAAPA, the differences in creating folk music and experimental performances, and answer some trademark Midnight Special segments (Sandwich Tales). They also perform beautifully with a prepared piece and an improvised work. In the second hour, we talk to musician Adem K (Turnstyle, The Community Chest) who discusses Five Film Recommendations - the genre? 1970s Sci-Fi! Have a listen to Adem's selections and his reasons for why each film is a favourite he could watch weekly. Then we also answer our song poll early on - which song is best to celebrate the wet weather - 'It's Raining Men' by The Weathergirls or 'Raining Blood' by Slayer. #RainingMenOrRainingBlood
