Dr Glam and Demelza’s Inflammable Spandex Cafe
Nov 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Imagine yourself in the middle of a dark ocean. The only thing you hear is a distant Morse code over a retro beat.

A silky voice asks, “Are you my mother?” The sparkly lights get closer. There’s people drinking coffee, vodka and fluffy ducks. They’re chatting and laughing. “Where did you get that lame boob tube from?” . . . “From here! Dr Glam and Demelza’s Inflammable Spandex Café!” . . . “That’s a mouthful.” . . . “I know, but it’s not fattening.”

The beat grows louder as you climb onboard the shimmering café. Chill out and relax, dudes.

Let Ian (Dr Glam) Chapman and Demelza May take you there, every Friday at 6pm on Otago Access Radio. Chur!

Charlie’s Angels: 24 Years of Writing Together
Nov 30 @ 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm

If you are looking for a writing group in the Otago area, or just enjoy listening to writers reading from their own work, tune in to Charlie’s Angels; Twenty Four Years of Writing Together, every Sunday at noon.

Most writers benefit from being a member of a writing group, but groups in Otago are few and far between.  The Otago Writers Network hopes to change that by helping writers to create new groups that cater to their specific needs.

The network was created by Kath Beattie’s Writing Group, a collection of writers based in Dunedin, UNESCO City of Literature, who have been writing together since 1993. On this series, writers read their own works tell you how they have benefited from being part of a writing group.
