8.00pm – 10.00pm
is hosted by
The weekly two hour radio show featuring music from
roughly the years 1964–70.
Stuck in the Psychedelic Era, is rooted in the music created by both American
and British bands of the late 1960s ,
yet is constantly expanding beyond those roots to create an
eclectic blend of music unlike anything else in modern radio.
Much of the music is taken directly from vintage vinyl, scratches and all.
The rest comes from Compact Disc compilations and re-issues of original albums,
all taken from ‘The Hermit’s’ personal collection.
Invoking the original underground radio format of the late 1960s the style is clean and direct.
Commentary is centered on the music itself: artist histories, contextual information,
anecdotes, personal memories and occasional forays into how the music of the
psychedelic era relates to today’s world, with additional track by track commentary,
including technical details such as release year, original label and songwriting info.
The show’s format follows that of underground radio stations of the 1960s
with no jingles or pre-recorded promos. Much of the commentary centers
on the artists’ histories, contextual information, anecdotes and personal memories.
