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

Enjoying yesterday's ep. Brilliant stuff.

I've been waiting 16 years for a "Crowded House" podcast!   What a basketful of wonder.

The once running "Chocolate Cake" podcast was pretty good, too.

Neil, Sharon, Liam, Elroy, Buddy ... full FINN in ISO2

Better Than TV
Miracle Glance  [Liam Finn] - Buddy on trumpet
Moonage Daydream [David Bowie] ... BOWIE was right there !

in the aftershow ... Animal Vs Human - demo which ended up on some editions of Dizzy Heights.

I've been trying to find the session when Neil asked us fans if we had any questions and answered ones such as: "Why is it called FangRadio?" I can't remember the date nor any session around that time. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I also think you might be looking for April 23. The one that also included the question about Mark and Matt.

Better Than TV was edited out of the archive. Any idea why?

Neil apologised after better than tv for getting a part wrong. I didn’t notice it but he must have decided the error was a problem.

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 😉

The Saturday show still isn't up. What's happening there Jaffaman? They used to be archived very soon after playback for the UK to listen to in the AM. I assume this is complicated by the new podcast distribution needing to cut out all the non-Finn audio?

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.
