Radiobaby Plays on Thames’ Main Street

Radiobaby was invited to play for the New Zealand’s first Mindsports weekend held in Thames at the start of March.

The main street was closed off at Grahamstown and a stage was set up for Radiobaby,  The Heaters and The Darcy Perry Band to entertain on Friday night.

“It was a thrill to play in the middle of the main street of our hometown,” said guitarist Odee Rose. “Although I wouldn’t say what we played was entirely ‘middle of the road’ music.”

Radiobaby Play At Thames High With Guitar Students

Radiobaby returned to high school after nearly two decades on Friday
to give guitar students a chance to enter the world of the performing

Singer and guitarist Odee Rose has been a guitar tutor at Thames
High School this year. On Friday he brought his band Radiobaby to
school and invited his students up on stage to perform the songs they
had been learning.

“Performing to an audience is an important part of learning an
instrument so I’m quite lucky to be able to give that experience to my
students,” said Mr Rose. “When I was at school my music teacher
organised a lunchtime concert and me and my mates played a Doors song
and our teacher played the keyboard. That experience got me hooked on
performing and I wanted to pass that on to my students.”

Radiobaby played outside the senior common room so the students could
sit on the field and near the cafeteria to see what Mr Rose’s
students had been learning all year.

All three members of Radiobaby are former students of Thames High School.

Radiobaby debut this week

They came together to play some songs for the Christmas In The Park and hit it off. Over the summer a new Thames band have pooled together a night’s worth of songs and are playing their first public show at Brew in Thames. Radiobaby is a three-piece with Otis (Odee) Williams on guitar, Paul Hinton on bass and Tracey Slaughter on drums.

“I’m very excited about this band” says Odee. “It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time. We visit the Grunge scene and do some rock songs from this century but our secret weapon is 80s pop songs. We don’t have a keyboard player so we rock them up.

“I’m talking about songs you find yourself singing and then look around to make sure nobody heard you. When you’re in party mode you just can’t resist having fun with them.”

Odee and Tracey share the singing. “It’s great having a female vocalist in the group. It has instantly opened up the range of songs we can do,” says Odee.

Tracey is an author and lectures at Waikato University and Paul is the glue of the group. “He organises everything and keeps us focused. I think he has a military background or something,” Odee jokes.

Radiobaby play at Brew, Thames on March 23.
