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.
Tonight, your host Tristan Fidler aka TFid welcomes two special guests for a double serving of chat. First, we talk to Judy Young aka Young Hoops about her company that teaches hoop-dance to all ages, perfecting on-body and off-body hooping, and the benefits of passing on the playful fun and exercise benefits of hoop exercise. Then, we get to know about lights, neon lights specifically, from Benjamin Kontoullas (of Camp Doogs and Write Like Neon) who gives us insight into the long-running art of neon sign designing, making and installing as well as giving major props to the great man who taught him the trade (shout out to George Aitken) as well as giving us his favourite neon signs in Perth. It's fun, illuminating conversation on the Midnight Special!
