Sportzfan Radio

Hosted by The Professor with regular panelists Sean Callanan (alias the The Sports Geek), The Gelding, Nicole Chvastek, Nick Tedeschi & Daniel Eade and featuring the world’s oldest radio apprentice Stan, we present the best two hours of sports discussion you’ll hear anywhere in the world.  Informative, forthright, opinionated it is truly the “Thinking Persons Sports show”.  Regular segments include US Report with Dan Butterly, racing review, the “F” Word and Dalligan on League.  If it’s considered a sport, we’ll cover it at some stage even if we do argue from time to time over the precise definition of ‘sport’.

Fatman Blues

Fatman Blues Saturday Nite 8pm – 10pm

The Fatman presents Blues music that doesn’t give you the Blues.

I am a new presenter at 88.3 Southern FM and am looking forward to presenting Blues, Rockabilly, Roots, Soul and Ska music on a fortnightly basis.

I cover music from the early American Blues of the 20’s to the Chicago Blues of the 50’s to the fantastic British Blues of the sixties right thru to today’s contemporary Blues music.

I regularly play a strong mix of Australian and New Zealand Blues – anything from Billy Thorpe, Chain, Madderlake, Spectrum, Midge Marsden to Hey Gringo, Chris Wilson, Fiona Boyes, Collards, Green and Gravy, C.W Stoneking and Tex Perkins.

If you dig Louis Jordan, John Lee Hooker, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green, early Rolling Stones, John Mayall, Duke Robillard, Ronnie Earl, Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Charlie Musselwhite, Eric Lindell or any of the Australian musco’s listed above, then listen in every second Saturday nite from 8pm for two hours of great Blues related music – you won’t be disappointed.

Requests and feedback is welcome – so contact me at either fatmanblues@hotmail.com or www.myspace.com/fatman_blues
