So it begins…
We draw ever closer to the critical mass that is March. Soon we will have three major festivals descend upon us, a car race and a plethora of complimenting alternative festivals. We went straight for the bull with this one and spoke with Greg Clarke, Director of the Fringe Festival.
We’re also starting something new, crudely titled ‘the Drop In’. We’ve asked a few people about town to make monthly or so visits to the studio and join us through the show to talk about their corners of the city. Over the next coming weeks expect to hear Dr Ianto Ware, Stan Mahoney, Jane Howard and Josh Fanning having a casual chat over the airwaves. This episode’s drop in guest was infamous Adelaide street artist Peter Drew, who kindly sat in throughout the show to have a chat about the upcoming Street Dreams festival, and Adelaide street art in general.
The Fringe Festival has been gracing our city for some 52 years. Starting in the West End around the Lion factory, it has now largely become an event associated with the East End. But not if Director Greg Clarke can help it.
I love Mr Sloppy, and so do you… even if you don’t know it yet. Peter Drew dropped in, and after an awkward tale of student radio gone wrong, spoke to us about Adelaide Street Art. You like the sound of that? Then you’ll like the Street Dreams Urban Art Festival March 3-4. Just Do It.
This week’s feature track comes from Californian yoga teacher Gonjasufi. The ideal playing environment is at a high altitude, camped out in a shallow cave with a few incense stick thrown on the fire, drinking mescaline and dry reaching wondering if this was the right decision.
