There was a lot of reports about flights being cancelled on Friday due to strong winds playing havoc with planes flying in and out of Sydney. So it was with some trepidation that we made our way to the airport to catch our Qld bound flights. However we got lucky, and were only about 45 minutes delayed from taking off for our two shows up north ,and we were able to easily make Fridays' gig at the Park Ridge Tavern in south west Brisbane.

We were stressed a little at first, because we had heard that Park Ridge was completely sold out. The thought of not being able to get there and play then, to a packed house , played heavily on our minds. Our worries were long behind us as we hit the stage at the Tav to a tumultuous welcome. What a great crowd . Thanks to all who showed up for making it a night to remember! There were even people there who could'nt get tickets and told us they were just going to listen to us from the carpark . We managed to sneak a few in with us ( but don't tell the management !)😄 ..

Saturday night saw us perform at the Mitchell Creek Rock &Blues Festival in the Noosa hinterland. What a great set up. A mini city in the middle of the bush. Very well attended too,with many people camping out there for the three days that the festival was on. We were actually pleasantly surprised how well we went over , as it seemed a lot of the acts were more blues oriented than rock . Some bloody good bands on there as well. We had a fantastic time and our thanks to the promoters for the invite and for looking after us so well. And many thanks of course to the big crowd.. ( we estimated at least 3000).. for making us feel so welcome.

A busy but fun weekend for us . Thank you once again to the good people of the Sunshine State.

Love your work ! Always a pleasure.
Cheers from The Rads.

Back in Qld this weekend for a couple of more shows. You can't keep us away from the place! On Friday we play Park Ridge Tavern down Greenbank way we've been told. We think we have played here before but when you"ve done over 4500 shows .. You get a bit hazy sometimes..😄 .

Looking forward to it nonetheless, as every show we have ever done in Brissy has been a blast. Queenslanders love us and the feeling is mutual !!

Saturday night we are performing at Mitchell Creek Rock n Blues Fest It's like a Woodstock ( 3 days of peace and love man ✌️✌️) Set in beautiful surroundings and with a natural amphitheatre and about 50 bands on over the 3 days, it's gonna be great.

We are blown out to have been invited this year and are really vibing to put on a crackin' show. Brian being a mountain man, will probably bring his tent along and wanna camp out as well! The rest of us ... Probably not 😜.

Catch you on the weekend. Cheers and beers, The Rads.

I was at Big Swifty's last gig, and the Rads first gig. Big Swifty played at the Local Inn at West Ryde where I first saw them, and then, a couple of weeks later, I went back to the Local Inn and saw a band called the Radiators, and I remember thinking to myself that, "wait a minute, this is the same band I saw a couple of weeks ago called Big Swifty, but there's a couple of member's different"! Turns out I saw Big Swifty's last gig (as I later learned) and The Radiators first gig! 😂

I was 15 at the time and was going out to see as many bands as possible at my local gig (I was living in Epping at the time)! To my way of thinking that's a bizzare case of serendipity!!!

I was in a band called Dee Minor and the Dischords and all of the members were probably with me on both occasions, as we were all craving watching the bands of the day because we were trying to start our band on the best possible footing at the time, and who better to learn from than the best of the day? We (Dee Minor) were big Rads fans from the get go! 😁

Debra CallaghanHello Brent 🎼 I'm pretty positive that I was at that gig too. I've lost count of the many Dee Minor gigs that I also attended. Those certainly were the best days (in my opinion). Bands in every pub any night of the week. I'm relishing in the fact that many of these bands are making comebacks (or never went away) and I can go and enjoy their music once again. Regrettably I missed the Radiators playing at my local club recently as I was on holiday in the United States but they are definitely on my list of must see bands.

The Radiators added 6 new photos.

The streets of Coolangatta on Friday night were strangely empty. Two or three lonely diners eating in restaurants that can seat a hundred while other establishments were simply closing early. A virtual ghost town.. so we were actually suprised and relieved that there was a pretty fair roll up of punters to our gig at the Coolangatta Hotel. Not massive compared to Sunday arvo turn outs ..but good nonetheless and a great atmosphere . The place was rockin'! Thanks to everyone who came out for some live music and for making us feel so welcome once again.

Saturday night we were at Eatons Hill in Brissy as part of the Gold Fm shows. Ten acts including Real Life, Psuedo Echo, 1927,Mi -Sex ..to name a few , ensured it was a top night for the massive crowd that turned out! We only had to perform 4 songs but it was still a hard night at the office with all the pressure of having to be at your peak from the get- go .. with no sound check and unfamiliar stage gear ..plus the added pressure of us topping the bill for the first time at one of these shows ! Thankfully we went over great and our thanks goes out to all the crowd there for such a huge and generous reaction. Love your work Qld. We will be back up again this coming weekend for some more shows.

Cheers, the Radiators.

The band is traveling north this weekend and next weekend for some shows in the Sunshine State.

This Friday night we will be playing at the The Coolangatta Hotel in the main room upstairs. We are kicking off around ten- ish but there is a support act on listed on our worksheet as "TBA"...(We've heard they are very good !😀)... So live music will be kicking off around 8 pm, and we are hoping for another bumper crowd that usually turns up and rocks the house down at the famous Cooly Pub.

Saturday night sees us performing at another of those fabulous Gold FM Shows. Titled" 97.3 High School Reunion." This time at Eatons Hill Hotel in outer Brisbane but again, with a stellar line up of acts that you come to expect at these shows. It will be hit city ..and with at least ten acts playing all their best-known songs, it promises to be a great night indeed.

We are again pleased to be invited to participate in this extravaganza. This is the first of consecutive weekends in Qld for us and we are pumped.

Cheers from The Rads.

For the last few weeks, we thought we would be playing this weekend at the venue that we always had done in Riverstone previously. ( the Rivo Bowlo). We even hinted at that in our previous blog..

Much to our surprise there is a big shiny new club out that way and this is the new go-to place for the people of the area. The Riverstone Schofields Memorial Club...A beautiful venue and a real pleasure to play. A great Friday night crowd in attendance, with quite a lot of younger folk, possibly seeing us for the first time and ..having a ball! A good time was had by all and we look forward to getting back there in the near future.

Saturday night saw us back at Sharks Leagues Club, the home of the Sharkies. Unfortunately, the home side went down in a tight one. This made it harder work for us, as we had to really rock hard early on to lift the spirits of the big crowd. But lift they did.. And by half way through our set the joint was jumpin' !!

Thanks to all you guys n gals for getting into it and it is a real credit to you. You put the heartbreak behind you and we ended up with a big win for us in front of a sea of smiling faces. Up Up Cronulla indeed !!

Thanks to everyone who came to see the band over the weekend. Your support is much appreciated.

Cheers from The Rads.

Peta PunkineataThat "shiney new club" in Riverstone is actually quite old. It's the Riverstone Memorial Club. Had renovations quite a few years ago. The club bought the Rivo Bowlo and were apparently only using it for gigs to keep the liquor licence on it. The last 2 gigs the Rads played there were in a basically disused venue. One thing that Seattle Sounds frontman, John Perry announced to the crowd when they played there, was his appreciation that every single person who was there, was there to see them, and that's pretty damn cool. The place was packed. There's nothing in the old Bowling Club, no pokies, no TAB, nothing.
