Stage and Screen has been on air since 2RDJ-FM started broadcasting.
Originally a 30 minute programme it has grown to 2 hours each Sunday hosted by James Williams. James is an ARIA awards judge and also previously judged in the AFI awards.
Rather than a standard mix of stage and screen music, James may have a featured album or artist or a tribute for a birthday or a passing. Segments include reviews and interviews from John Curtis, nationwide TV ratings and highlights of television for the week ahead and notable birthdays and passings over the past week or so. When cinemas are open James also gives you box office figures and reviews of films. Sometimes along with music, comedy segments or plays, e.g. Dad’s Army.
Essentially, Stage and Screen is an unexpected variety of music and segments that hopefully is interesting and entertaining. The music varies each week to appeal to a broad part of the community, not just a narrow age or genre of music fan.
