Come On In – Pine Lodge Radio

Finally Myrtleville has the radio station it deserves – well for one hour a week at least. Mick Lodge ex Pine Lodge promoter, manager, DJ and general dogsbody has been at the helm of ‘Come On In‘ for a few months (actually Mick says it’s been a year – oops!) and we are hooked. We teased that if he dedicated a show exclusively to artists who have played that fine venue on the Atlantic coast we would resurrect this site for one night to give him a plug and that day has come. In our opinion the show is a cracker, although for reasons which will become clear if you listen we may be biased. It features music from American Analog Set, The Handsome Family, Windings, The Vincents, Elastic Sleep, The Altered Hours, Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs, August Wells, Willard Grant Experience, And So I Watch You From Afar, Boa Morte, Jeffrey Lewis and The Czars. Emmet of Bandicoot Promotions gets a shout out for all the outstanding gigs he brought to the Pine Lodge over the years.  We hear there may be a second installment so tune to Room101 at 8pm on Thursday night to find out.


End of an era..


Sad news folks, the Pine Lodge is now under new management. The venue is currently closed for repair and renovations and it is not expected that the new owners will have the same interest in live music. Thank you to Paddy & crew for flying the flag for so long and to the many top acts who performed in Myrtleville, you will not be forgotten. The final gig was Dyin Breed and by all accounts it was a good ‘un. Thanks to Siobhan Russell for the photo.
