Release The Sounds Blog

Radio Mike and Jack Post are two of Australia’s most unique radio producers and panel operators. With combined experience across shows such as Hamish & Andy, Wil Anderson, Grubby & DeeDee, Christian O’Connell, and Luke & Lewis - these two understand what it takes to grab the attention of an audience. 

I couldn’t help but want to get them on the show with the formation of their very own band, Release The Sounds, and their new self-titled album. Imagine a cross between Weird Al Yankovic and Blink 182 - a serious, yet comedic approach to social commentary. 

In this episode we covered:

  • How they met

  • Learning from Hamish & Andy

  • Release the Sounds 

  • Learning by doing

  • Comedy & commentary

  • Obscure Simpsons references

  • The band’s future
