Hear me on the radio

20 September, 2011

This coming Sunday (September 25th) I will be in Canberra, joining Allison and (I hope) Luke in the studio for Gimme Gimme Gimme, the weekly ABBA radio show on 2XX 98.3fm Community Radio.

Not only that, but we’ll be talking to Donnie Sutherland, host of Channel 7’s Saturday morning music show Sound Unlimited (later called Sounds) from 1975 to 1987. Sounds was on air during the famous period of ABBA mania, but also continued to support ABBA when the bubble burst and the rest of Australia seemed to turn on ABBA.

If you’re outside Canberra, in Australia or anywhere in the world, you can listen to live streaming at 2xx’s website between 5-6 pm Australia Eastern Standard Time (7-8 am GMT, 3-4 am US Eastern – check here for your local time). Chat with us and other listeners during the show on Facebook.

Weekly ABBA show on Australian radio

21 October, 2009

For a few years Canberra community radio station 2XX has hosted a weekly ABBA radio show, GimmeGimmeGimme – There’s more to ABBA than you think.

Last week I tuned in to listen online for the first time. It was  lot of fun! The theme for this show was “Pick on ABBA”, playing some of those less classic moments in the ABBA catalogue. After a call out to me and ABBA World by Luke, one of the hosts (and an old friend), I rang to say hi and before I knew it I was on air, talking about the website and my recent trip to New York for Kristina. Tuning in might become a regular feature of my Sunday afternoons. 

GimmeGimmeGimme is on every Sunday between 5-6 pm Australian Eastern Time (06.00 GMT). Tune in to 2XX fm 98.3 in Canberra or listen online here.
