After a warm up show last week we moved into full gear this week kicking off the year with the incredible team behind Filth AKL joining Hunter in studio for My Morning Mixtape. We also listened back to a couple of songs that Tiny Ruins performed up at the station last week & revisited some old favourites.
Back for 2020! To ease in the year Hunter kicked things off with a bunch of songs that have been simmering over summer + We listened back to some of the great tracks that Church & AP performed up at the station back in December.
