FBi Radio’s Out From Under was a weekly, hour-long selection of ‘eclectic and experimental Australian music’.
Presenter Stuart Buchanan, a seasoned radio presenter and serial record label owner with musical taste to be reckoned with, showcases new and old music and live performances, making it easy to discover something new and something weird* in every episode.
Sure, there are plenty of genre-driven community radio shows to compete for your attention – but what makes Out From Under different is Stuart’s careful blend of interviews and documentaries woven between the tunes. Music, combined with the stories and people behind it, make for a richer appreciation of Australia’s local underground and experimental music scene.
(* ‘Weird’ not in a pejorative sense, either; one of Buchanan’s earlier projects was a series of compilation albums and a radio show called New Weird Australia)
