Adie Barrett – Volunteer Presenter
During a long working week in a buzzing office environment (when not Working From Home of course), Adie lets off steam by playing the Swinging Sixties while commuting. It’s vaguely nostalgic, for he was born during that crazy decade and discovered it’s magical music fresh, while everyone else went oodles over Glam, Disco, New Wave, Punk, Electronic and not least, Metal. Still, he has been known to indulge in something a little more modern now and again. He joined HHCR with a track record of five years at Basingstoke & North Hants’ Hospital Radio, both flying solo and co-hosting shows.
The 60’s Mix Up gets mixed up every Tuesday evening, between 8pm and 10pm. It’s uniquely his – any track from that swinging decade could be played in between the fabulous hits, all hand-picked from his huge musical dustbin of songs. You’ll hear “Trios Of Tracks” where – you’ve guessed it – three songs are played with a connecting theme, usually from the same artist or genre. You could hear the odd television or film theme. And if you are really lucky, he’ll be getting his Big One out towards the end of the show. Will there be a big Mix Up? Or will Adie fly through unscathed? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
Requests welcomed, subject to availability of course! Webmaster’s note – We don’t know how he gets away with it.
