BREAKFAST WITH BARR AT THE ART GALLERY // RADIOTHON ON

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010 by Matt

Radiothon 2010The man frequently mistaken for a rooster, not for his bright plumage but rather for his penchant for being awake at stupidly early times in the morning will be outside of the comfort of the RTR FM studio and instead at Caffissimo at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

That’s right Breakfast with Barr this Friday will be special Outdoor Broadcast to open Radiothon for 2010.

The action begins at 6am when the barista makes me my first of fifteen coffees for the day and you are invited to come down, wake up and hang out with Barr and special guests like Shane Adamczak who’ll be chatting and offering up a song from his Long Songs for Future Girl…stage show which is bound to give you something else to laugh at other than the site of Cut & Paste crew zombieing about and crashing into the furniture while we’re filming.

If you’re hungry guest Chef Luke Bolton might just throw some breakfast in your face while he’s there as well, then of course there’s more music with Southbound-bound Split Seconds and WAMI winners The Brow Horn Orchestra.

By the time sun comes and other people are well and truly on their way to their normal jobs Josh Thomas, comedian and  panel star of TAYG will be making an appearance.

This is the opening event for Radiothon 2010 so if you’re not an RTR subscriber here’s your best opportunity of the year to correct this situation, have fun see some bands and get breakfast and coffee instead of drunk and sleepy.

We hope to see lot’s of you Cut & Paste kids there!

WHAT: RTRFM Radiothon Outside Broadcast Launch

WHERE: Caffissimo, Art gallery of W.A

WHEN: 6am-till 9am, Friday 20th August, 2010
