The Midnight Special RTRFM Episode 1: Mathas, Hungry Spot (RIP)

The Midnight Special is a six episode show that is part of RTR's Revolver program. Episode #1 was broadcast on Tuesday 23 February 12:00am-1:00am on RTRFM 92.1. 

For our first episode of The Midnight Special, host Tristan Fidler welcomes local hero and indomitable hip hop artist Mathas to sit down for a one hour chat. From discussing the release of his long-awaited second album Armwrestling Atlas (2015) to the development of his live performance, Mathas provides illuminating answers to how he puts it all together. There is our "Secret Perth" segment (about the unsung icons of W.A.) devoted to the dearly departed late night greasy spoon Hungry Spot (RIP) as well as some reviews and suggestions for our ongoing quest to find the Best Continental Roll in W.A. Mathas also brings in a couple of killer tracks that have been recent inspirations to him and his own music. Have a listen and drop us a line!
