Technicolour Dreaming had a rest this week, as it was time for Three D Radio's Top 100+1 countdown, which is held on the Australia Day public holiday each year, and features 12 hours of the most-played new releases for 2015, and interviews with local bands. Three D announcers get to choose the music that they play, as there are no set playlists, so the countdown features a very diverse range of musical styles, and a very high proportion of local Adelaide artists.
So it was into this musical maelstrom that I was thrown, with co-announcer Jamie (from Thursday's excellent drive-time show "Follow the Sound") at the controls, to interview 11 of the 16 bands that fell into our 2-4pm time-slot. Much chaos and hilarity ensued, with a revolving door of musicians coming and going - before we knew it, our 2 hours was over, and it was time for a well deserved beer!
I've included clips for as many of the Adelaide bands that I can find - some aren't for the song that we played, but will give you an idea of their style of music. Enjoy!
