6th Show

...aired Wednesday 28 April 2010 at Midday.

This show was dedicated to energy efficiency around the home. Our guest for the day was Cameron Crome, who works as an Energy Worker at Kildonan Uniting Care. Cameron proved to be a fountain of knowledge and gave us many useful tips to save money while reducing our impact on the environment.

In case you don't remember everything he said, Cameron was kind enough to give us a list of top efficiency tips around your home that you can download here.

A few hours after our show, Cameron was taking part in an Air Guitar competition which we have no doubt he must have won!

And you got to hear:
The Pixies perform Here comes your man
Honeybunch perform Wlking into walls
Raah Project perform Trick of the light
Cornelius perform Freefall
The Passions perform I'm in love with a German filmstar

5th Show

...aired Wednesday 21 April 2010 at Midday.

We explored the wonderful topic of "community gardens", and we were lucky enough to have Ben Neil, President of the Australian City Farms and Community Garden Network and former CEO of Cultivating Community . Not bad for our first interviewee hey? Starting from the basic definition of "community garden", Ben covered the motivations, benefits and main characteristics of community gardens.

In order to keep true to our principle of "keeping the program real", we also went through a list of community gardens in the Hume and Moreland areas so that our listeners can get their hand dirty. Feel free to download the list by clicking on the list below, and do let us know if you know of other gardens that need to be added. You can do so by emailing Jaime.

St Ettienne perform Let's kiss and make up

Divine Comedy perform Commuter love
Stereolab perform Pack yr romantic mind
