Special Needs

Scheduled on

Wednesday 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Since the late 90’s Murry Sweetpants has immersed himself in music in some form or another. Quite by chance a career On Air came about from being a prize pig on the then independent radio station GeorgeFM. After getting a taste for radio volunteering for many years on the infamous early morning “Short Black” pre-breakfast show before Peter Urlich,  He spent the next 8 or so years lurking about with intent before crossing the street in 2010 to hold down ‘the Long Black’ on Radio Ponsonby until the stations closure in April 2014.

Wednesday 4-6pm with SWEETPANTS

You’ll now find him holding down some afternoon delight here on BaseFM – ‘Special Needs with Sweetpants‘ Wednesday 4 til 6pm on 107.3FM.

Whether it’s the perfect sound for cocktail hour, or a seriously tasty selection of tunes to get you on your feet, then this guy is your guy.  Taking musical inspiration from the likes of legendary UK DJ Norman Jay, as well as producers like Joey Negro, Mr Scruff and Dimitri from Paris, Sweetpants believes that every time should indeed be a good time. Expect everything from the deepest archives of Funk classics, to forgotten Disco gems and ass shaking House. Get on the Goodfoot with Sweetpants – on a radio show or dancefloor near you.
