THE RADS ON FACEBOOK
It's great to be down south for a change. It's been over a year since we've at the Oaks Hotel in Albion Park Rail, so we are looking forward to connecting with our many friends and fans in that part of the state.
December is a hard month for bands to try and get people out to a gig. Everyone is saving their cash for presents or have office/ work parties to attend. So many distractions and so little time. However we are still hoping for a reasonable turn out on Saturday night, so we can help you kick start the festive season in a rockin' style.
Hope to catch a few punters out and about. We can promise you, it won't be a "silent night" !! Cheers, The Rads. ... See MoreSee Less

Friday night we were back at Caves Beach Resort for a gig in the new section of the hotel. The management has changed the stage and entertainment area to the opposite end of the complex. It has created a more "night clubby" feel to the place and less of a big cavernous" hall" type venue. It works well and is more intimate. Not a bad roll up of people but a little down on previous gigs. That's always the way it is in the lead up to Christmas. Still a good time was had by all and we really enjoyed playing on the new stage . Thanks to everyone who came along!!
Saturday saw us flying up to the Gold Coast to play our part in the big extravaganza at Helensvale. Around ten acts were featured and we were rapt to play our part. All acts played 3 or 4 songs each so it was short but intense! A massive crowd was treated to a calvalcade of absolute hit tunes and top performances from all the artists. With great production and lighting it was quite a spectacle and Gold Coast locals lapped it up. Thanks to all of you guys up there for making so much noise during our mini set and for making us feel so welcome.
For those who were not there on Saturday night, check out some of the snaps and this video posted and you'll get an idea of what it looked like.
If one of these Gold fm shows comes anywhere near you, make sure you get tickets. A top night guaranteed! Cheers from The Radiators. ... See MoreSee Less

It's always a great night at Caves Beach and so the band is really looking forward to Friday night at one of our favourite venues. It never fails to go off !
With the warmer weather upon us and this being our first gig for the summer, its going to be a "Feel the Heat" celebration." ....It's just a summer.. It's just a summer holiday " !
Hope to see a quite few of you out and about to help us kick start the first weekend of the new season. Cheers and many beers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less

This venue is tucked away in an area between Newcastle and Nelson Bay and seems a beautiful quiet little place.
Well it wasn't quiet after the band arrived and proceeded to shake Club Lemontree up a bit last night! A real suprise packet of a gig with a really big crowd showing up to this great, not so little club.
It took a little while to coax big numbers onto the floor but by midway through our set, bulk people had gravitated towards the stage and threw away their inhibitions as they ripped into what was a great Saturday night had by all.
Thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to the atmosphere. We almost didnt have a gig though ...as our truck carrying the PA and lights broke down halfway up the freeway (broken clutch). Our sound guy, Bobby had to get it towed back to Sydney and couldn't make the gig.
Alarm bells were ringing as a distress call was put out for someone to step in and do sound for us at the very last moments'notice. Luckily for us our old mate "Humphrey" stepped up and answered the call. He was up at the central coast and were so lucky that he was available to do the gig.
Many, many thanks to a champion guy who pulled a great sound for us and really got us out of the poo! What a legend. In the end a successful show that at one stage didn't look it was going to happen.
Cheers and beers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
Marie SkenderThe show must go on, well done guys. See you at Heathcote for some great music and christmas cheer.2 weeks ago
Saturday night we venture up the highway towards Nelson Bay. Club Lemontree is the venue and it's been ages since we've been in that neck of the woods .. Lemontree Passage. What a great name, conjures up all sorts of images.
We have played there once before years ago and it was a great night and we were suprised by the big turn out. It's tucked away off the main drag and we remember we had a little trouble finding it, but now with our trusty Sat Nav .. No dramas. How did we ever find our way to those thousands of gigs in the 80"s??
I'm sure the locals know where it is though ..and hopefully they are primed for a great night because we certainly are.
We are really looking forward to it. Its gonna be sweet! Cheers, the Rads. ... See MoreSee Less
