This Saturday morning (September 21st) at 8.30 join us for Downunder Uncovered. First broadcast in 2017, it's a programme delving into songs you know and some you don't, to reveal the original Australian performers who wrote and performed them. You'll hear the likes of David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Grace Jones, and Iggy Pop. You'll also hear new takes on Aussie classics from AC/DC, Kylie Minogue, and the Bee Gees, as well as some Aussie artists who took songs from overseas down under, and remade them in their own inimitable fashion. Presented by reformed music journalist turned multiplatform editor, and regular on Morning Brew...Jarrod Watt.
Produced by Phil Whelan
This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for Good Ol' Country with Michael Lance. Apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, he's lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America with his family's Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs, sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country. (Saturdays, 12.05pm-1pm, Facebook: @nebraskamike)
