Canley Heights RSL is a club The Rads had never played at until Friday night. In fact we were'nt aware it even existed, so we were pleasantly suprised to find ( thanks Sat Nav)..a bustling and really nice establishment tucked away in the quieter area of Fairfield/Smithfield in outer Sydney.

A better crowd than we had hoped for was in attendance and it was a great night all in all. A suprise visit by the old front rowers of the 80's A -team made it a fun night for us and it was good to see all the "gang" again. No offence meant with the "old" bit girls... you know what we mean ! Love your work.

Saturday saw us travelling down to Wagga Wagga ( so good they named it twice !).. it's a beautiful town and the band was pleased to have been invited down for annother extravaganza called "Rock at the Races".

A host of fantastic acts got to play all their best known and most famous tunes in front of a huge and appreciative audience open air at the Wagga race track. We were selected to come on last this time and although we were chuffed to do so, it was tough coming on after Glenn Shorrock and all his Axiom and LRB mega hits, Dragon with all their massive crowd killers and JPY who had the locals singing and swaying to his classics like " I hate the music and Love is in the Air" etc.!! .

We went over well however and our 5 song set was very well recieved. Thank you to all of the Wagga good people for making us feel so welcome. It was certainally a buzz to have played for you. Every act played fantastic and it was a great gig for everyone indeed ! We were rapt to have been a part of it. Till next time, cheers from the Rads.

The Radiators shared Live at the Foreshore's THE RADIATORS / LATF.

Live at the Foreshore
Saturday night saw the band back down Wollongong way again, but this time at the Oaks Hotel in Albion Park Rail.. ( not to be confused with Albion Park ..which had no rail !). A good crowd was in attendance and we went over very well. It was a fun night and so thanks to everyone who came along . You looked like you were enjoying yourselves and that certainly rubs off on us.

Looking forward to getting down there and playing the Oaks again some time next year.

Sunday arvo we travelled the other way ,up to Newcastle. The Rads were invited to be a part of the "Live at the Foreshore" outdoor event. It threatened to pour down but only sprinkled and the big show went ahead under a dark and gloomy sky.

Nothing gloomy about the music though, as it lit up Wickham Park with a feast of great acts and absolute classic songs. So many great performers at the top of their game made for a memorable afternoon. A bloody big crowd considering the threatening conditions and we were rapt with the reception we recieved and the great sing- a-long participation during our mini set of 5 songs. It was also unreal to catch up with so many fellow musos backstage as well in a relaxed and vibey atmosphere.

We are doing it all again next weekend too, with the "Travelling Circus" venturing to Wagga this time for another huge day. It's bound to be another cracker of an event.

Till next blog , take care and hope you pick a winner in the Cup. Cheers, The Rads.

First gig back on dry land was a trip to Woolongong for Harley-Davidson. A three day bike- fest with live music. It was a great set up and we were honoured to be asked to play there. Brian and Mark were particularly thrilled, as they both love anything to do with motorcycles.

Geoffs' gag about saving up to buy a Vespa step thru Scooter however ..went down like a lead balloon! A tough but fair crowd and we got the job done. Diesel was on after us and sounded great. His bands' bluesy music was perhaps more to the crowds liking. Excellent production and staging was in place and made for an enjoyable gig for us nonetheless.

Saturday night saw us play at Lithgow Workies Club & Motel on the other side of the Blue Mountains. We haven't been at the Workers Club for yonks, so we were rapt with the great roll-up of people out and about at this really nice club!

Thanks to everyone who came out to see some LIVE music over the weekend! Love your work, the Rads.

#ThrowbackThursday Countdown went all out on this one. They constructed a huge key for us as a backdrop and shot separate scenes with Brian and his handfuls of glitter. The ABC used to run on a tight budget (not like now!) so we felt privileged that they lashed out for this performance. Good to see Chris Tagg our original drummer on this as well as a very skinny and youthful Brenden on keyboards that seem to hover in thin air. All very arty and great to see again .....Haven't caught that clip for decades!! !! Wish I could find that red shirt again... Cheers, Geoff.
