Tuesdays 8PM

Presented by Manny

Join Manny each Tuesday night for a 90 minute sonic mystery tour. Whether he’s dusting off some archives from oblivion or spooking the airwaves with sonorous apparitions, it’s The Mood that counts…a journey more than a destination.

Manny likes to share his passion for 80’s post punk and experimental music, 70’s dub, bloke folk, minimal techno, deep house, sound effects and spoken word grabs as well as the occasional melancholic pop song. All the while stitching together a loosely themed show you can enjoy in slippers, thongs or trainers.

After inheriting a half a crateful of choice 60’ and 70’s cuts from his older bro’ (sent back from swinging London in the early 70’s) Manny began collecting records seriously in the early 80’s while working in ABC Radio from 1982 – 89 and as a regular presenter on 2MBS FM’s ‘midnight to dawn’ programs between ’83-’88.

He is a member of the legendary recording and performance group The Loop Orchestra, and currently juggles work on Sydney’s harbour as a skipper and at a local Community Centre as a Care Support worker.

He joined Eastside in 2004.
