A 21,000 CD Collection is up for sale. The entire collection of well known presenter DJ Ridingpants is an exquisite and diverse selection of World, Pop, Australian, Country, Jazz and Classic music, all donated to NOOSA FM for the station's fundraising sale.
DJ Ridingpants has been synonymous with NOOSA FM for almost two decades. The former Kiwi had wanted to be a radio presenter since he was a lad and his big chance came through a chance meeting in a Noosa music shop where he met a NOOSA FM volunteer who opened the door to kick-start his life long dream. Robs passion was obvious and he was promptly invited to one of the station's first in-house presenter training courses and and went on to deliver the very first of his trade mark program. The rest, as they say, is history; NOOSA FM history.
The sale kicked off last Saturday, and naturally, there has been a lot of interest but there are still plenty of CDs available. You can contact NOOSA FM on 5447 2233 for inquiries, or simply pop into the station Saturday or Sunday from 9 am onward and purchase your own CD selection at bargain basement prices.
NATIVE TONGUE is a fitting title for the third studio album from Mojo Juju and it is her very essence laid bare. It is raw, honest, emotional and intrinsically political. It is also brutal and relentlessly real. Since cutting her teeth and making a name for herself on the Australian touring circuit in the late 2000s, Mojo Ruiz de Luzuriaga, a.k.a Mojo Juju, has been many things to many people. She's been a troubadour, a soothsayer, a shapeshifter and a darn good songwriter.
Check out the full Mojo Juju interview with Therase Burke on Friday Drive.

You may be forgiven for thinking that these gentlemen where extras from a well known pirate movie? But nay, it's NOOSA FM's very own Chris Lofven (left) and Jim Toomey of 'The Tourists' fame.
Apart from being involved in setting up our station with Barry Charles back in the day, Jim Toomey was the drummer in 'The Tourists', a UK band (1976-1980) featuring Annie Lennox & Dave Stewart who went on to form Eurythmics.
Jim has written a lively account of those rocking days titled We Were Tourists and came on board the Magic Bus last Saturday to have a chat with Chris.
The Natural Culture have taken the time to pop into NOOSA FM to discuss their music and current tour with John Shaw on 'It's Global'. The award winning group's 'A Bag of Apples and a Six Pack' tour will take in coastal centers from Brisbane through to Airlie Beach.

Despite the precipitation that arrived later in the morning, spirits remained high as the 350 plus riders taking part in this years Distinguished Gentleman's Ride set off on their 18k course via Noosa's iconic Hastings Street in support of Prostate Cancer and Men's Mental Health.
The event was very well organised and ran smoothly thanks to a dedicated team of volunteers headed up by their tireless coordinator Cameron MacGowan. Records numbers where achieved in both attendance and funds raised on the Sunshine Coast.
For more details, check out Debbie Noyek's second interview with Cameron MacGowan below.

There was a little rain at this year, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of those attending the Booin Garri Festival on the Banks of Noosa river. And once again NOOSA FM was there this year with a live broadcast to support and celebrate diversity within our community.
Booin Gari Festival annual festival offers opportunities to immerse in Australia’s First Nation culture through song and dance, art and craft, stories and yarning, bush tucker tastings and water craft. Gubbi Gubbi Dance led by Kabi Kabi Traditional Custodian Lyndon Davis, host the popular family festival that keeps offering more, without the usual festival prices.

On Sunday September 30th 2018, over 120,000 distinguished gentlefolk in over 650 cities worldwide will don their cravats, tustle their ties, press their tweed, and sit astride their classic and vintage styled motorcycles to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and men's mental health.
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was founded in Sydney, Australia by Mark Hawwa. It was inspired by a photo of Mad Men’s Don Draper astride a classic bike and wearing his finest suit. Mark decided a themed ride would be a great way to combat the often-negative stereotype of men on motorcycles, whilst connecting niche motorcycle communities together.
That first ride in 2012 brought together over 2,500 riders across 64 cities.
Debbie Noyek interviewed Cameron on her Sunday afternoon show Easy Street, to talk about the annual event that has hit the street's of Noosa annually since 2014.

In 1992, twelve years after Lennon’s death, Waters and D’Arrietta first conceived and performed Lennon: 'Through a Glass Onion' on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney. The show was an instant success. In the years that followed, Waters and D’Arrietta toured the show and played sold out engagements at venues including The Sydney Opera House. The show performed a three-month engagement in London’s West End.
“The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles. It had such a strong image of crystal ball-gazing and peeling away the layers that it inspired the format for this show – a kaleidoscope collage of song, word, emotion and image”, agrees D’Arrietta with Waters.
For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time.
John Waters took time out of his hectic schedule to chat about his feature role in 'Through a Glass Onion' with Therase Burke on Friday Drive.
