Triple R’s Summer Programming Is Here!

18 December 2020

The sun is out, the fun is returning, and music is back in the air… Let Triple R be your soundtrack to a summer like no other!

While our regular presenters are taking a well-earned break, a bunch of new and a few familiar folks will take the radio reins.

Expect to hear shows that cover everything from comedy, gaming, queer issues, films – and even chickens. Plus, lots of great music, too.

Here’s the full list of summer programs. Happy listening, everyone!

Weird + Hungry

From 10pm to midnight (during the Golden Age of Piracy timeslot)

For those sitting inside + looking out, and those standing outside + looking in. Slow + fast, heavy + soft, profound + profane, conventional + experimental — there is no in-between.

Music with Tom AM.

When? From 16 December to 6 January.


Field of Glass

From 2pm to 4pm (during the Respect the Rock timeslot)

Under the blistering suns of musical icons lays a field of glass. Jagged, glittering, unkept and willful. A teeming ecosystem of rough hewn shards reflecting, refracting and magnifying the sharp brilliance from above. Dazzling oases of technicolour wonder; retina etching rays; blown cones and rattling cabinets. Sonic titans at peak powers, flooded engines spluttering to life, basement tapes and demos. All praise to the mutators, the saturators, the sustainers, the chooglers, the rhythm sections. Celebrating those holding down one note, stripping out the inessential, layering on the unnecessary and insisting on running through the chord changes one more time. It's deja vu all over again. Hosted by Nick Brown.

When? From 24 December to 28 January.


From 7pm to 8pm

We live in a media saturated world. The news cycle moves at lightning speed and is impossible to ignore. Surrounded is a 5-week show that attempts to make sense of what our media chooses to elevate, why and how.

Live Transmission

From 11am to 12pm (during the Einstein A Go-Go timeslot)

Ebb Tide

From 2pm to 4pm (during the JVG Radiomethod timeslot)

Dan Warner nudges JVG aside to present his summer fill show, 'Ebb Tide'. A stickler for research, Dan delves into the histories and meanings of the songs on his playlist. Not too much chat, however, more a stitching together of the tunes of the day.
