Built for Speed
Program: Built for Speed
Broadcast time: Every Friday night 8pm – 10pm
Presenters: Nick, CJ and Jimbo.
Are you a fan of rock, both alternative and classic?
Want to know whether that cinematic blockbuster or art house flick you’ve heard about is worth your time and your hard-earned cash?
Looking for some questionable comedy and pop-cultural commentary?
Then you need to listen to Built for Speed on 88.3 Southern FM.
Built for Speed presenters CJ, Jimbo and Nick have been blasting the Southern suburbs with their favourite music and totally unbiased film reviews every Friday night at 8pm for nearly 16 years.
Whether it’s established bands or music virtually no-one’s heard about, we’ll bring it you if we think it’s any good. We’re proud to say we were one of the first shows playing artists like Wilco, The Vines and MGMT.
Our film tastes are equally eclectic so if you’re a fan of extreme action, sci-fi, genteel period dramas or some strange combination of these we’ll let you know what’s worth seeing.
We also have the occasional guest drop by and in the past have enjoyed a chat with Mick Molloy, actor Tony Martin, film industry insiders and numerous up-coming bands.
Unlike most programs on the commercial stations we take song requests and every so often tantalise our learned audience with CJ’s rock quiz. So tune in this Friday and gorge yourself on the pop-cultural triple cheese burger that is “Built for Speed”.

Monolith is as much a psychological mystery thriller as a sci fi film as
Based on Ian Reid’s 2018 novel, the dystopian sci fi drama, Foe offers an intriguing premise but too often delivers it in a dull fashion. Set in the year 2065, the film depicts a world in which our worst fears about the impacts of climate change have been realised. Global drought has almost annihilated agriculture so governments have begun a
Through films like Air, Blackberry and now Dumb Money, an intriguing sub-genre has recently emerged in cinema: the maverick entrepreneur capitalist film. Through their depiction of quirky yet highly driven individuals, these movies both critique and celebrate the American obsession with the market and the pursuit of business success. The latest addition to this sub-genre, the fascinating, funny, cheekily inspiring,
As a movie title, Five Nights at Freddy’s sounds more like a comedy-drama based in a nightclub rather than a horror film. Gamers, however, will know better as this is an adaptation of a massively popular supernatural/ slasher themed videogame. The film’s trailer suggested a Saw-style human rat trap torture porn film. There is a touch of that but possibly
Martin Scorsese has largely built his reputation and ravenous following as a filmmaker on contemporary stories of misfits seeking redemption and Italian American gangsters. Frequently, though, he’s stepped away from that milieu to explore historical subjects and biopics in films like The Age of Innocence, Gangs of New York and The Aviator. He hasn’t ventured into the western genre but
