Counterfeit Week 5

Halfway through the Counterfeit block on SYN FM and wow, its going so fast! Guess it's cos we're having so much fun. This week on the show we featured an interview that we had with up-coming Californian band Dirty Little Secret. We spoke to the bass player James Bairian, who was more than happy to reveal all of his secrets. Speaking from a mobile phone as he was riding along the beach on his Harley, James talked to us about the production of the band self-titled EP and forthcoming album, his drawn out views on the music industry, and getting a spot on popular TV shows. James was extremely pleasing to chat to, by far the most fun interview we've had so far, and we wish his band all the best in the future.

On the Counterfeit Mix Tape this week we had some fun with Guilty Pleasures. Whether it was a band that the music press has deemed unpopular (Razorlight), a band with cheesy lyrics and synths (The Bravery) or 80s cornball dance and romance (Aha and Yaz) we had it all going in the CD player this week. The disco lights in SYN studios also got a bit of use too.

Thanks a bunch to Greer, our special guest this week who DJ-ed some of her favourite songs on her trusty I-pod! Go technology! We had heaps of fun with you Greer, it's always a pleasure to have you on air.
