TELL US: Do you want a special broadcast on 11 Feb?

It’s been a little while since our last show and we’re sure you, like us, are hanging for a fix of Rant n Rave Radio’s “The Agenda”. There is so much to rant about with so many issues coming up. The big one amongst them was the announcement of the election date months and months ahead of time. And of course there’s been the subsequent shenanigans over it since plus there  the nation’s federal Parliament has returned for the year.

And with our schedule freeing up a bit we thought it would be fun to get our fix of Rant n Rave Radio’s “The Agenda” by doing a special broadcast on 11 February.

So tell us – do you want a special broadcast on 11 February?

Well it doesn’t actually matter if you said ‘No’ we’re still going to do a special broadcast.

A very special make up show

Greg and Alex will be hosting a very special show. The usual “The Agenda” will not have nearly as many items; and we’ve put aside standing orders to ensure that there’s only one item on “The Agenda”.

What’s so special about this show? Why would you bother listening?

Simple!

They’ll be doing “The Agenda” just before the Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Awards (VIPA’s or VIPA Awards). There’s a good chance they’ll get to chat with some of Victoria’s deadly stars before they walk the red carpet.

It’ll be a short show though – only 30 minutes.

So don’t miss it! It’s a once-in-a-life-time gig!

Get your reminder now!

Sea Shepherd and Whaling

One of the rants we’ve had a few times here on Rant n Rave Radio is about whaling and countries that keep whaling.

We’ve exposed the lies behind “scientific” whaling and the other weak excuses used to continue this barbaric practice.  And, if you’ve caught those particular rants, you’ll know that Greg and Alex are big fans of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s work during the southern hemisphere whalers’ hunt.

So when we heard the Sea Shepherd’s “Steve Irwin” whale hunter vessel was to port in Australia we thought we’d contact them for a gig on the show.

At first we thought we’d get told to bugger off since we’re a small (very small) operation, if you can call it that.  But Greg never gave in and set about finding out what was going and who we had to speak to to get an interview. We explained how the show works and that there’s essentially no censorship; we’d give them the air time to vent their grievances about the ongoing whale slaughter however they wanted to express them. Apparently they thought this was an awesome idea.

Now we’re following up with them to find the exact person, the one with that’s in-the-know, and give them time to vent their spleens about whaling.  We’ll keep everyone up-to-date with how we’re going securing an interview.
