Out the back the ladies of Drastic on Plastic celebrate 35 years of women in music on your radio. Founded in 1983 as part of 6UVS by current presenters Lorraine Clifford and Jane Armstrong, Drastic on Plastic gave women in music a voice in a male dominated world. Two hours of only female musicians and performers presented by women at a time when being a woman in music was not only rare but controversial. 35 years and although the world has changed somewhat, Drastic on Plastic is as necessary as ever before. Join the team from Drastic on Plastic as they celebrate everything that is amazing about women in music and the radio show that has been bringing them to you for 35 years on RTRFM.Party down with Lorraine & Jane, Marnie Richardson, Maxi May, Sarah Norton, Kristie Butler, Saschy Wilson, Jemima Dove. Join us for the ultimate celebration of two of RTRFM’s longest running radio shows. Get down for a dance, a boogie and one hell of a good time.
