ANNOUNCEMENT: Radio Monash to attend the 2016 AACTA Awards in Sydney

Radio Monash are thrilled to announce that it will be sending four presenters to attend the 2016 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards in Sydney next week. Covering the event live from the Red Carpet on Wednesday the 7th of December, our presenters will be face to face with some of the most iconic and celebrated personalities of the Australian Film and TV Industry. Radio Monash is the first community owned and student-run media organisation to be invited to the event in the history of awards, which is an achievement we are both incredibly humbled and excited by.

About our Presenters: 

Shelbui Inglis joined Radio Monash in Semester 2 this year, and has since made quite a prolific name for herself among the wider Radio Monash Community. As Co-Host of “Monash Mornings”, Shelbui consistently placed on the weekly International MixCloud Comedy Charts with each and everyone of her shows for the semester – an achievement held by no other presenter in Radio Monash. In November, Shelbui was elected to the Radio Monash Committee, filling the role of Community Officer alongside Peggie Sakwa in 2017. Read more …

PODCAST: Episode 7 – Tess a Fi

This episode Tess Guthrie joined me in the studio. We discover I first heard of Tess many many years ago when my Mum taught her as a substitute teacher when she was in Primary school. We discuss a short period of time going to the same high school and when we performed together in house music. Despite all this we only actually got to know each other this year studying mathematics. We explore Tess’s change from a music lover to a number and philosopher lover. We also talk about our experiences of anxiety and Tess explains how her experience reached a peak during a study trip to China. We discuss Eastern philosophy and how it can help with anxiety issues.

Episode 5 – Sack it to me baby

This episode Jamie was joined by his current boss and Student Experience Coordinator at Monash Abroad Ryland Sack. Ryland Sack currently studies a double degree majoring in zoology and music. We explore Ryland’s early success in music winning talent contests by impersonating Tim Minchin and writing protest songs to stop his Dad from burning a Mallee Root. We also discuss Ryland’s love of science which was inspired by David Attenborough, a man who he missed having a chance encounter with due to not wanting to go into work early. Other features include Ryland’s impeccable employment record and we answer a few questions from exchange students. For those playing at home the book discussed early on is Uncle John’s Bathroom reader. Read more …

GIG REVIEW: Tribute Band Night at Yah Yah’s, Fitzroy: The New Fellas and The Smokes

Ever since the Buggs and Elvis impersonators became popular, tribute bands have always been a staple in music entertainment. Tribute cover bands serve as a great way for bands who are perhaps getting too old to perform, or the more morbid side of it, for bands whose members are no longer with us, to be injected, to avoid a pun here, with more life. Unlike cheese, bands do not get riper with age but tribute bands are sort of a way to pick a rotting cheese off the shelf and repackaging it and calling it “blue cheese” and “decadent”. Many would argue the Strokes aren’t getting worse with age, despite being in the game for over a decade now, and people who’ve listened to their most recent Future, Present, Past EP would agree they are losing their touch a bit. But the Strokes are well into middle age now and have lost touch with their 2001, Is This It selves. The band no longer play dingy, and smoky, packed venues, nor do they indulge in on-stage antics with intense audience participation, tossing microphone stands like javelins. Luckily enough for us, The Smokes, pulled us into a time machine, said “where we’re going, we don’t need synthesisers!”, and took us back to a time around 2006 where The Strokes were in full swing and were filled with youth and energy.
