The second play was a very lively affair. “Moving Out ” bounced along being sexually provocative all the way but it turned from the exciting and frivolous to the serious stuff at an in-laws get together. Who was Cassie’s father? She had thought he had been killed in a mining accident. The truth was a bombshell.
The third play was a gem. “Call Centre Call ” – A very active computer nerd is struggling with his wiring and needs some customer support. He rings up customer service and the voice, Gabriella Salmon did a brilliant job of making all the telephonic noises and instructing Henry to push the telephone numbers to get directed to his potential help. The voice even enters the real world of chat with Henry but still answers with numbers and the usual telephone noises. It was hilarious especially if you can relate to such answering services. Bruce Olive wrote the play and Alison Lambole directed.
A great night out at Bats. Thank you to all the staff who made it work so well.

Thanks to everyone that tuned in for the seventh Off the Beaten Tracks show. As usual I enjoyed souring the internet for the past week to bring you the best new and interesting music from all around the globe. Thanks again to Rufus for his help with this one.
This week we got into:
- Atmospheric sounds from a grammy nominated game soundtrack
- Some more 70’s Thai funk from The Sounds of Siam Volume 2
- A couple of Anglo-Fro tracks from UK and Kenyan Collaboration Owiny Sigoma Band
- A brand new track from the incredible Tony Allen with vocals from Blur’s Damon Albarn
- Something not totally new, but new to me from Aussie funk outfit The Bamboos,
- A bit of disco infused summer Vaporwave from 21 year old SAINT PEPSI
- Some more Aussie vibes in the form of electro-rock from Chet Faker,
- Powerful raw soul-rock from Ninja Tune’s Kelis,
- Kaleidoscopic pop from UK duo Anushka,
- And finally for this segment of the show… an indie-dance track sampling Peter Gabriel’s “Games without Frontiers”
In the second hour we got into the mix as usual with Off the Beaten Mix and some of the latest underground electronic and dance music. You can find the track lists for both shows below.

In 2015 we will celebrate our 20th year of broadcasting. In the lead up to this momentous occasion two of our dedicated members have been compiling a history of Noosa Community Radio. Founding Member Andrew Tucker and Life Member Brian Panisset have been collecting the stories of volunteers past and present and now they want to hear from you.
Andrew and Brian want to include:
- The history of all the years and the struggles
- The decisions and importantly the reasons behind them
- The great people and the not so great
- The achievements of people who simply helped but did not get named
- The great wins and some that got away to be tried again at another time
- The pitfalls we found, the pitfalls that other stations found and we avoided
- The anecdotes of crazy, funny, terrible things that happened
If you’ve got something you’d like to see included please email it through marked ‘History Project’ to email@example.com
