Judging from the change in sound of Neil’s voice I actually think the musical performances were not live-to-air, but pre-recorded. Neil’s comments in between were live. 

Edit: Neil confirmed this during the show.

And not wanting to be nitpicking but the tribute in the aftershow was for Tony Allen, who played with Fela Kuti. Tony Allen also played drums on “Dream Date” from Try Whistling This.

... thanks Guy. and sinner 62

My Word, I haven't had a chance to listen to this, but it looks like a treasure trove of rarities! How exciting! (but what is bFM? in regards to Roundhead theme?)

Neil mixed up the lyrics of 1st and 2nd verse of Better than TV ... "sorry about that Sharon ... I went early to another section"  being a little distracted as Buddy popped into the room ... and you may notice the entire exit music section was also edited out of the archived version so hence doesn't include the Animal Vs Human - demo which ended up on some editions of Dizzy Heights  ... that edited version was broadcast on Fangradio Sunday May 17th 2020 catching chatting Fangers by surprise during Kat's Split Enz Mental notes listening party which was rescheduled to Monday May 18th 2020 ... double Bliss

it's aaaalll goooooed on Fang !!!!

Love the last line .... 👌 I am guilty of revisiting this thrice times 😉

I don’t know why Neil hasn’t uploaded it to the Mixlr Showreel yet. Maybe he wanted to edit it first, as there were a number of errors in the performances. He has a busy week, so I guess it’s been given low priority. We should have an explanation by this time tomorrow. 

I can’t add to neilfinn.com and then trim it for the podcast versions until he makes it available to me.

Neil Finn in a test broadcast from home in Los Angeles.

Fangradio Theme
Reverence (demo)
In My Blood (acoustic/piano version with Sharon Finn)
Nick Seymour on phone
Pony Ride (acoustic/piano version)
Fangradio Theme (new mix)

Those already present for the daily FANG "gathering" and occasional listening parties - still going strong  - were caught by Neil by surprise ... and quite a surprise it turned out to be !
First Live FANGRADIO broadcast since June 06th 2020 full of great bits and pieces, a call with Nick Seymour who joined us on mixlr, .. while testing new gear.
Neil hinted that more FANGRADIO broadcasts might follow (while in quarantine)  ... it all sounded very good and ever so exciting.
The Buzz attracted many a fan to return to the FANGHive since months ... 7 daily visitors witnessed the stampede of some 550 attending .

archived on neilfinn.com/fangradio, mixlr.com/fangradio/showreel/, soundcloud.com/neilfinnofficial, iheart.com/podcast/269-fangradio-62777000/, ...

Be seeing you next time ... wherever you are
