#1831 Neighbourhood Vibe

Some neighbourhoods have backwards road signs, while others are known for their cul de sacs. Join us as we travel into the small enclaves of Australia where people have whole lives and whole communities.

‘The Glebe Community Op Shop’ by Karishma Tanvi

In the inner city suburb of Glebe, there’s an op shop run by volunteers that’s more than just a shop for second-hand goods.

Supervising Producer: Allison Chan

Music: ‘People Everywhere (Still Alive)’ by Khruangbin, ‘Steady’ by Fujitsu

‘In The Neighbourhood’ by Sam Loy

There’s a suburb in Melbourne where there are some reservations on the pronunciation on its name. This neighbourhood also has its own song.

This story was inspired by the song ‘In The Neighbourhood’ by Tom Waits (and radio producer, Scott Carrier) but it’s actually it’s nothing like it.

Sam Loy produces the wonderful podcast, Human/Ordinary, and you can hear a longer version of this story on the website and podcast.

#1810 The Long Weekend

What does Australia do over a four day weekend?

We’ll be sharing in a birthday celebration, Easter egg hunts, a belated Lunar New Year dinner and creative backseat antics on family road trips.

‘Are we there yet?’ by Jordan Fennell

We discover how Jordan and her family make it through a six-hour road trip.

‘We’re going on an Easter egg hunt’ by Britta Jorgensen

The Easter long weekend wouldn’t have been complete without an Easter egg hunt.

‘Made in a hurry’ by Zacha Rosen

We celebrate Passover and endure a character building exercise in the pursuit of a story.

Music: Ave Roma Sonatori Te Salutant by Armando Trovaioli, The Lutz Police Militia by Alexandre Desplat, Jálale [Instrumental]‎ by Mexican Institute of Sound

Thanks to Newtown Erskineville Anglican Church for letting Zacha cover their graveyard tour. Even though he lost all the tape.

A heartfelt thanks to Joseph Ware, Samantha Groth, Karishma Tanvi, Angela Moran, Martyn Reyes and Yvonne Lam for their recordings of their long weekend.
