Radio One 91FM Releases Free 2CD Sampler
A Century of Seasons for their 25th Birthday

Radio One 91FM Dunedin is celebrating 25 years of existence by releasing 25 years of Dunedin music on a 2CD set - titled A Century of Seasons. The first CD of the set has 20 tracks showcasing classics and unearthed aural treasure from 1984 through to 2007. The second disc is a roll call of 20 current Dunedin artists who you will be hearing more from in the future. A Century of Seasons, Radio One's 2009 Double CD Sampler, will introduce young ears to artists and classic tracks that have helped make Radio One and Dunedin what it is today.

Radio One Station Manager Lesley Paris says 'It's been a great project to work on. We've been really fortunate to have permission to include never before released rarities like a live version of the Chills Pink Frost and a mighty demo version of Snapper's Cause of You that was recorded at the Radio One Studio in 1988. The CDs feature other tracks mined from the Radio One recording studios archive such as fine cuts such as the Double Happys Nerves as well as songs recorded as bands played them Live To Air. We've also tracked down unreleased gems such as Zuvuya's Chi Chi from their unreleased album.

This CD Sampler set of Dunedin music is a perfect way to explore the past, present and shining future of this little city that continues to punch above it's weight. Radio One says a big thank you to the DCC for a Community Arts grant towards the costs of the manufacture. A Century of Seasons is free to anyone with a Radio One 2009 Onecard and is available from Thursday 16th July from the Radio One Stall at the OUSA Market day on campus and from the Radio One Office at the university, Level 1, OUSA Building, 640 Cumberland St, Dunedin.
