Presented by Brut 33 & Mikey Kennedy

Boogie Dance Cafe is a loose approximation of an over exuberance of musical love combined with an over indulgence of caffeine.

A vinyl-only show, highlighting the records you find when pounding the pavement. Jazz, jazzfunk, boogie, disco, soul, afro – upwardly-downbeat & immodestly flamboyant.

From the makers of Paradise Lost & Spacepeoples, broadcasting since 2008. Sharing a passion for realness, radio and community.

She is an avid supporter of community radio with subscriber status held at fellow stations 2SER, FBi and marketing/sponsorship is her specialty at Eastside.

Bully Dux …

He cringes at corporate gigs but plays them anyway. Being dearly attached to his 2 wheelers, Bully Dux is keen to pull out his traveling paintbrushes and paint more colour on empty objects.

He’s hosted and played on 2SER – Mophonics show and random blues and roots slot on Bondi FM.

Groove Therapy

Friday 12:00pm – 1:30pm

The place where old school hip collides with new school know how. World music fusion with electronic B-Boy funk and organic grooves. Presented and mixed by DJ Frenzie, Noodles & Noel Boogie.

Frenzie cut his teeth DJ’ing in Melbourne in the late 80’s, having grown up being inspired by the early cut and paste sounds of hip hop music. In the mid 90s he spent 5 years in Brisbane, and in that time managed to DJ regularly at pretty much every decent venue around town. Now days, Frenzie has settled down in Sydney, where once again he has played at every decent inner city venue at one time or another. In 2001, he secured a management position at Sydney’s most beloved club – The Globe, managing some of Sydney’s most beloved clubnight.

Frenzie has played at all major music festivals, featured on the 2001 Triple J ‘Turn Up Your Radio‘ tour with Endorphin and Groove Terminator, and has 15 years experience presenting programs on community radio around Australia.
