Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. On This episode of the Audio Archive I celebrate the 7000th entry in my music catalogue, Roxy Music's second album For Your Pleasure. The influence of Roxy Music cannot be overstated, just count the number of New Wave frontmen that took their inspiration in look and sound from Bryan Ferry, or the originality of Brian Eno's work with early synthesisers. A whole hour of brilliantly crafted songs, for your pleasure!

Episode Information
Hosted by Matt and Eddie. This week we bring you a pair of massively talented guitarists who (we feel) don't get the plaudits that they should. From the UK we bring Robin Trower, who played guitar for Procol Harum and has had a long career playing rock and blues primarily using a fender Stratocaster. Our other guitarist could not be more different. Roy Buchanan was an American country-bluesman who employed the Fender Telecaster. He never ache9ived stardom and died tragically young.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. It's been a while since I did a comedy show so here we go! Bob Newhart is a great American comedian. I remember him from a TV Sitcom ('The Bob Newhart Show'). He combined surreal material with a deadpan delivery. On this show I play a selection of his skits along with other material by Sytan Freberg and Nichols and May. Listen to some unusual American comedy from the post-WW2 era; dry, surreal and erudite.

Hosted by Matt, Glen and Eddie. A red-letter day! All three hosts of the Audio Archive are in the studio for the first time since the pandemic began and we have a real treat for you. Matt has delved into his extensive collection and unearthed a selection of Prog (progressive) Rock. I have to note here that his definition of prog is unique to him! This show features Traffic, The Blue Oyster Cult, The Hawklords, Steamhammer, The Oh Sees and Peter Gabriel among others.

Episode Information
Hosted by Matt and Eddie. Alligator Records was founded in 1971 with the express purpose of showcasing Rhythm and Blues music. In this episode Matt brings the blues and then some! We feature names that aficionados will know; Hound Dog Taylor, Koko Taylor, Roy Buchanan and Johnny Winter. But we also feature lesser known blues players such as Son Seals, Lonnie Mack and Fenton Robinson. Tune in for a hour of great blues!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. Like 2021, this year is turning out to be a great year for getting both new and second-hand vinyls (and CDs). In this episode I play selections from recent acquisitions, mainly birthday presents. I showcase the great new album by Robert Plant and Alison Krause, Raising The Roof (thanks to Matt and Shar) and records by Scott Walker and The Beach Boys (thanks Stuart). I also feature the Canadian Bruce Cockburn and the UK band Squeeze.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. Rock music has a reputation of being an unfriendly place for both women and people of colour, so when you are both of these things the odds are surely stacked against you. In this show I showcase Joan Armatrading and Tracy Chapman, two black women who have made their own music their own way. This episode is dedicated to Tony, who first championed Joan Armatrading to me back in the 1980's, thanks for opening the door.

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. Listen to an hour of one of the best jazz trumpeters ever! Dizzy Gillespie was a true virtuoso and a major figure in the bebop movement, bringing Latin rhythms into jazz. A single hour is scarcely enough time to do more than introduce a man considered to be one of the best.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. In this edition we take you back to the world of the 1970's when disco was king! Earth, Wind and Fire are one of the best-selling musical artists of all time and a glance at their songbook demonstrates why. In this show we also feature the band's backing singers, The Emotions, another extremely talented group. Step back in time, disco wasn't that bad!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie. The Band were an American phenomenon. Drawing together strands of Rock, Country and Rhythm and Blues (among others), they discovered a music that transcends each of those categories. Extremely popular and influential, their legacy can be heard in many contemporary artists (the whole alt-country movement for instance). We play some hits and some more obscure tunes. Also in this episode we feature a Double Take, the same song by two very different artists.

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. It's still possible to get great vinyl records for $1 if you know where to look. Case in point, I scored a copy of The Faces disc Ooh-La-La for a buck from the Red Cross Shop. This is a great record and inspired me to do a show on 70's British Rock. I'm playing some great songs by some great bands! Featuring The Faces (of course), Hawkwind, Thin Lizzy, Slade and Mott The Hoople.

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. Ahmad Jamal was born in 1930 and began playing the piano at the age of three. He is still active and his latest release is dated 2019. We play an eclectic selection of both his own works, works that he popularised and an outlier (a Steely Dan cover!) Listen to the music of a man who was praised by Miles Davis for his "space, discipline and lightness of touch."

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. Ska is a musical form that both of us have enjoyed for many years, so we are very happy to bring you some great tunes in this show! We draw mainly from the Two-Tone period of Ska that dates from the early 1980s, but also play some more recent, Kiwi ska. Featuring great bands such as The Selecter, The Beat, Bad Manners and the Bodysnatchers we also play a tunes by Kiwi band Skapa and Palmy's own Screaming Orgasms. This show had us dancing in the studio!

Episode Information
Hosted by Eddie and Glen. In this episode of the Audio Archive we feature Erroll Garner, a jazz pianist that we believe deserves wider recognition. A musical prodigy (he began playing at 3 and never learned to read music) his style falls between the stride of Fats Waller and the 'ivory tickling' virtuosos that would follow (Peterson, Tatum, Powell).

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. In this show we go back in time 50 years or so to a very different New Zealand. I will never forget seeing the Kiwi band Golden Harvest playing on the children's TV show What Now in the late 1970's, you didn't see to many folk attack their guitar with their teeth back then (or now for that matter). So we begin the show with a couple of songs from them and then play selections from compilations of that era, especially the Loxene Golden discs from 1971 and 72.

Known as 'Bird' his enormous talent, fantastic ability, struggle with his mental health and addiction, and finally his tragic and untimely death have left a an enduring legacy. We play a selection of standards and more obscure works and hope that you tune into hear one of the best jazzmen ever!

Hosted by Glen and Eddie. 2021 turned out to be a mast year for my vinyl collecting, I obtained some great new music and reconnected with some 'ancient' treasures. In this show I highlight some of my contemporary acquisitions, most notably Little Simz release Sometimes I Might Be Introvert (Xmas gift!), a truly superb record. I also feature Koko Taylor (40 odd years of record buying to get this one!), Amerie and the Crusaders, and Orchestra Luna's self-titled 1975 album (and much more!)

Hosted by Matt and Eddie. The Audio Archive returns for 2022 and we are very happy to have out-of-hours access to the studio again! It's been a while since Matt has had a chance to play some tunes so this show is all about his recent scores. We cover a wide variety, showcasing some classic rock in the form of the Groundhogs, Uriah Heap and Steamhammer. But we also play some new music (great Aussie band Amyl and the Sniffers) and even a bit of jazz (Chick Corea's Return to Forever).

Episode Information
Hosted by Glen and Eddie. Anyone who gets into Jazz will encounter those musicians who stand above the rest. John Coltrane was one such artist. Very few artists in any field dominate their chosen medium the way Coltane dominates the saxophone sound of jazz. He has even been canonised by the African American Church! In this show we showcase the epochal album Giant Steps. Listen this week to the sound of genius in action.

Listen to some truly great music and learn why this was where Glam began.
