Presented by Manny Gasparinatos & Taline Kalaidijian
Join Manny & Taline on alternate weeks as they each present a Mood Swing, taking you on a glorious ride that is never the same from one week to the next. Whether it’s dusting off some archives from oblivion, dropping a set of oblique beats, or spooking the airwaves with sonorous apparitions, it’s The Mood that counts.
Manny likes to share his passion for 80’s post punk and experimental music, dub, bloke folk, minimal techno and the occasional great pop song, stitching together a loosely themed show you can enjoy in whatever position you find yourself.
Taline loves to create a mood, taking you on a luscious, sweet soulful journey one week to deep, dark soundscapes and fat beats the next. She is a collector of all fine music. On Moodswing, you will hear Rare Groove, Soul, Funk, Nu-Jazz, Dub, Reggae, Dancehall, Wonky, Afrobeat, Disco, Breaks, Electronica and all varieties of fusions. You can also visit www.taline.meonline.tv to listen to and view her previous Moodswing shows, playlists and DJ mixes.
Manny began collecting records in the late 80”s and worked in ABC Radio from 1982 – 89. During this time he was a regular presenter on 2MBS FM’s ‘midnight to dawn’ programs. He is a member of the recording and performing group The Loop Orchestra, and works on Sydney’s harbour as a skipper.
He joined Eastside in 2004 when he co-presented Intereclectica with the late Clive Smith. Taline joined him to share the show soon after and came up with the suitable name change.
Taline is a Singer/Musican/DJ and has been hosting a show on Eastside Radio since 2001, first on The Rhythm Method with Jane Costessi, to taking over Saturday nights and now presenting Moodswing on alternate weeks with Manny.
