On Monday night, Kylie Sturgess, a regular broadcaster on RTRFM and podcaster with Token Skeptic, hosted a ‘mostly Tim’ edition of the Snooze Button show, a late-night programme on RTRFM, an independent community radio station broadcasting, 24/7 at 92.1FM in Perth, Australia.
In the early hours they can be a bit creative with the playlists, so, at 4am on the 19th, Kylie devoted over an hour of the show to music by, related to or enjoyed by Tim, calling it ‘The Snooze Button (Angry Feet) Christmas Show!’ after his poem and fansite.
The Monday 19th December, 2016, Episode of The Snooze Button Show will be available for streaming for at least a further two weeks here. The full playlist is viewable on there too.
Snooze Button 19th December: “This show features an hour of songs by local musicians, taking a tour through some of the work by the Fisher family – Jim Fisher (including a song from this year’s Fremantle “Hidden Treasures Winter Music Series”, the bands Sensitive New Age Cowpersons, and Dude Ranch [with Lucky Oceans]); Tim Minchin (songs from his soundtrack with the Midnight Youth Theatre company production of Mother Courage in 1995; Matilda the Musical; Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar in 2012; soundtrack to TV show Californication; early band Timmy The Dog, along with some songs he mentioned on BBC’s Desert Island Disks); Tom Fisher (and the Layabouts); Lucy Fisher.”
