107.5 FM

Of late we have noticed something weird.

So, driving around Wellington, randomly the radio ended up on 107.5 FM. The moose rarely listens to the radio, but something has to happen when the tape is being changed, as the stereo is really hard to turn back on again if it is turned off. (Our wheels are pimping, yo.)

Anyhow. So 107.5 FM seems to exist within Wellington central, but vanish around Newtown, and be replaced by other randomness, which was all a little spooky.

The last few times I’ve caught it in town, I recognised it was playing variously Robert Anton Wilson Explains Everything, and Adam Curtis’ documentary series the Century Of Self. Since these are both things I have repeatedly forced on people in the past I can only say, hell yeah, check these guys out.

A wee google later and it seems to be these guys. There’s not a lot of information, so I assume it is someone’s computer wired up to a little transmitter and looping underground sort of media, but good stuff.

Apparently their coverage is over the “Wellington CBD, Mount Victoria, Te Aro, Kelburn, Brooklyn and parts of Newtown.”, so if you’re in range, check it out.

    Random update: lately it has been what sounds like Alister Barry’s documentaries on NZ social history and politics, and a bootleg of the Amanda Palmer gig.
