Pendle Hill Hotel in Sydneys’ west was the scene of the crime last night. Fresh from our Golden Stave “Hall of Fame” honours and gig on Friday, we were ready to rip and tear .
With a lot less pressure on us and a good crowd in attendance, we had a top night . Thanks to everyone who came along ..a few good people even sporting the brand new Rads’ 40 No Stopping T-Shirts!.. 👍 First time we had seen them ..we will have to wait for ours apparently, such has been the high demand for these beauties.
Thanks so much also to all of you kind folk who offered their congratulations and best wishes on our Hall of Fame induction, via Facebook .Very nice of you and much appreciated. Your comments give us a lift and a little spring in our step.
Already looking forward to playing again ..up at the “Mezz Bar “ on Friday and the Enmore on Saturday night.
Cheers from The Rads.🎼🎸🎤🥁 ... See MoreSee Less

Great day in Goulburn yesterday.
We were invited to be part of the “Classic Hits Live” concert at the Goulburn Workers Arena. The weather was with us after a lot of doom and gloom predictions of rain and mud.
In fact the sun broke through as we went on stage to a good crowd of local rock n rollers who had come along to celebrate live music . Thanks to all you good folks for an enthusiastic reception. It was great to play in your area again. It’s been a while.
All acts went over really well and what a line up it was !!.. Matt Finish, Swanee, Choirboys, Psuedo Echo,1927, Dragon, Glen Shorrock,Ross Wilson all belting out their big hits ensuring a fantastic day for all the punters.
Great to be a part of it and..we are doing it all again with a similar and even bigger line up, in a couple of weeks at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. Looking forward to that one. 👍
Hope to catch a few Rads tragics at that concert too. Cheers from The Radiators.🎤🎸🥁🎼

Leanne White, is this where you were hugging people
It was perfect my home Goulburn and my all time fav band was there rockin with my besties in our rads caps was an awesome vibe xxx
Been a bit slack with the Radblog the last couple of weeks but it’s been a sad time for us. The passing of our dear friend Michael Weiley, guitarist with Spy v Spy came as quite a shock, even though we knew he hadn’t been all that well lately. We’ve seen quite a few of our colleagues and peers pass on in recent years, and it’s always sad and a time of reflection. Mikes’ death hit us especially hard, as we had done so many gigs with the Spys in recent years.
A gifted and unique musician who provided all the colours and signatures of that fabulous band. He will be sorely missed. Vale Mike Weiley..may you continue to soar in the Rock n Roll stratosphere .

Rip ,fly high in music heaven
So very sad. And John Wicks of The Records just passed on Sunday. 😢💔
Make some noise 🤟🏼
Beautiful words....always a sad time when you lose someone, especially a human you respect, love and admire RIP 💙
RIP! Saw them many times back in the day supporting the Rads 🎸🎵🎶
Very sad indeed.., Mike was a lovely humble guy & will be sorely missed. Much respect to him.
I posted on my fb page in his honour. A GREAT guitarist. All reviews say what a lovely man he was. Rest In Peace Mike. You’ve left behind many great memories. 😔😔
So glad I got to see both The Rads and The Spys (with Mike & Cliff) at Dee Why in February that gig will now hold special memories forever.
such a decent person--a real shame..
Nice tribute lads. Getting Spys on radio today...and off to funeral. Such a good egg.
It’s so hard to loose a friend & hoping all those great memories you shared together ease some of the pain. Deepest sympathy to all.
Very sad news. Rip. Spys were 1st band I saw when I was 16.
He left us with hes awesome sound of music Long live Aussie Rock n roll ! Thank you
Well said Guys Michael Weiley will be sorely missed. Us Falcons will see you guys next Tuesday Brent Dehn & Sophia Geoff Turner & Terry Turner Brian Nichol & Lindy Nichol Mark Lucas & Vicky Hugs xx
I hadn’t heard thanks for letting me know. He will be missed!
RIP ROCK IN PEACE BROTHER 🎶🤟
Very sad news guys... my deepest sympathy to you all... beautiful words and I'm sure many special memories... RIP May he be up there rockin' with all the other legends!!!
Very sad and a great loss. A lovely guy. Love and prayers to his family and friends ♥

Good gig gents
Back at one of our favourite venues in Sydney's far west last night, the fabulous Hawkesbury Hotel in Windsor.
A great roll up of people once again and it was such a fun night. Everyone was in a great and relaxed mood and it's all to do with the set up and ambience of the pub. This venue has dedicated itself to shine a spotlight on live music and that's why the locals flock to the Hawko to show their support .
A great place to play for musos ,and an informal and cool vibe in the "beer gardeney" /open air arrangement for the punters.
Thanks to Wilko and staff for the hospitality as per usual.
Thanks to all you good people for rockin' up and choosing to share your valuable Saturday night with the Rads.
Luv ya 👌🎼🎤🥁🎸 ... See MoreSee Less

***NEW RADS 40 SHIRTS - YOUR VOTE***
It's been quite a journey! A never-ending ride for four decades.
Since their very first gig on the 13th September 1978, at the Local Inn Hotel in West Ryde in Sydney, The Radiators have never stopped !!
No break ups..no hiatuses..no farewell tours..no comeback tours...Just a constant commitment to keep on keeping on while the passion and inner flame continues to burn.
A few member changes over the years have not slowed the Rads machine.They have not only survived these upheavals but, have gone from strength to strength!
In recognition of their 40th year and an unparalleled 4500 shows, The Radiators ask their ever-faithful fans and supporters to please join them again, rock along to a gig when the boys next venture into your zone, and help them celebrate this massive milestone !!
To celebrate, one of these shirt designs will become the "official" 40 shirt with potentially some others later on. In the meantime, we need you all to make a choice between the 2.
Shirt Number 1: Has the logo "Pure Australian Rock" etc on front with the road sign on the back
Shirt Number 2: Has the Road Sign on the front and nothing on the back.
Please post your comments below, wither 1 or 2 and the winner will go to print next week when we announce pre-orders. ... See MoreSee Less
The Rads were back up in Queensland on the weekend. Always guaranteed a great time, again this was no different. Another cracker mini-tour of 3 shows in 48 hours. Starting with a bang at the Soundlounge inside Currumbin RSL, on Friday night. A really big roll-up of punters and a fabulous reception for the band in this, our first time at the venue. In fact all 3 gigs were "virgins" for us which is rare considering we have played well over 4500 shows over the years!
First time at the Beerwah Hotel on Saturday night and the place was pumping. People everywhere . We got off to a bit of a shaky start after jumping on stage..the Bass amp refused to work. Much jiggling, switching and shaking, eventually tracked the problem down to a bodgy lead and with that sorted ..we were able to get on with the job. Always a bit of a dampener ..but we just worked a bit harder to overcome that and we, fortunately, came away with a win!
Our thanks to our support band "Evil Twin" who also did Currumbin with us, for 2 great shows. These guys rock and the crowd loved them at both gigs. ( thanks heaps for the use of the GK too 😜) ..
Sunday saw us out in the daylight for an early arvo show at the Gaythorne RSL Club. We kicked off at a most unusual time of 3.30!! ..but the place was full of people out and about, ready for some live music and ready to rock. A great bunch of people who lifted us up ,encouraged us to clear the cobwebs ,and deliver a boisterous and fun show ..even though it was not at a usual muso friendly hour of the day !😄 Thanks to our support "To the Skies", for warming up the gig for us . These guys have a good future we reckon . Although it's sad but true ..we've got shirts older than these lads.😂 You gotta love it ! Well done.
And well done to everyone of our loyal Qld supporters for coming out on the weekend in big numbers once again . No wonder we always enjoy coming to the Sunshine State.
Love ya !! Cheers from The Rads.🎤🥁🎸🎼👍 ... See MoreSee Less
Looking forward to partying with you this coming Saturday at the Hawkesbury Hotel 🎶💃🏻
Still near Cairns.
Thanx for Sunday night guys. It's 2018 and you sound better than ever. It was such a fnkn pleasure.
Great show at the Sound lounge. Everyone I spoke to had a blast. Look forward to your next tour. Cheers
Thanks guys! It was a great run of shows, awesome crowds, we loved it. 'Till next time! Rock On!
Had a fantastic night Soundlounge
Had an awesome weekend once again, looking forward to the next time 😎
Whether I am in Sydney or The Sunny Coast, if The Radiators are playing, everyone is assured a fantastic time. Thankyou for visiting Beerwah ✊🏻✊🏻
The RSL was awesome! Thanks. Just don’t bring the Spy’s shirt with you, next time bring the Spy’s as well.
Had an awesome night at currumbin rsl on Friday night thanks heaps guys
Awesome show at soundlounge. You guys rock.
Rippa gigs boys....see ya up here again in a couple of months🤘🤘
A night we will never ever forget!!! Troy and I will talk about this till the day we die and thanks for signing my stuff and for being the most awesome humble kind bunch of guys... true rock stars you are and true legends in our eyes!!! RADS FOREVER!!!💙💙💙💙
Was a great 3 days thanks for having me, Rock on🤘🤘
Saturday at Beerwah was awesome. A great night. Thanks guys.
Thank you guys for the music!! Congrats on 40 years, see you again next time ❤️
We love you guys to. Thanks for showing us a great time. Please come back again next year. 💙🍻
Miss these guys
Best ever band
I've seen you guys a lot but Gaythorne RSL was definitely the best set and the funniest happiest vibe I've experienced. Brian deserves extra pay for putting up with me down the front. From hand charades asking for Hit and Run to flashing my boobs at him he took it all graciously and with a sense of humour. First time I've flashed a band. We may have lost Doc but so thankful we still have Brian. Thanks guys. X

It's a long way to the shop if you want a sausage roll
Wow, you know you’ve made it to the big time, when you get a Sausage Roll named in your honour ( we’re not worthy)
Cause that's how they roll!!!!
You’re a big Sausage roll fan Shane.
