Hanging With Friends App, Favourite Board Games and Liam Finn

This week on Diff'rent Strokes... it's our last show on this time slot. In case you haven't heard, we are going "prime time".

Diff'rent Strokes with Jade and Dave will premiere at Wednesdays, 7-8pm on JOY 94.9 starting 6 July.


Jade starts Hanging With Friends. The app, not literally. Although, when she does she'll probably be dividing her time between that and utilising some app anyway. Looks like we've found a new app obsession!


Dave and Jade reminisce on their favourite board games and discuss whether games nights have a place in youth culture. Let's face it. They might be moving to a time in their lives where they'd prefer to have mates over for a board games than a wild night out clubbing. What's your favourite board game?


Jade reviews Liam Finn's latest album FOMO. As his third solo release overall, FOMO has been described as a good collection of breezy indie/pop but will it be a defining record in his discography? Only time will tell.

Wynter Gordon Interview, Instagram and 5mag

This week on Diff'rent Strokes...


Dave reunites with one of his most beloved upcoming singer/songwriters Wynter Gordon as she returns to Australia to launch the all important debut album: With The Music I Die.

They pair first hit it off in December when Wynter came to Australia for the first time (and into JOY studios) to promote her single 'Dirty Talk'. Since then, the song has gone #1 here with almost four times platinum sales - a success Jade will eternally attribute as the "Diff'rent Strokes bump".

Tonight, you'll hear our interview with Wynter where she discusses With The Music I Die and her definition of dance music, and opens up to Dave about how heartbreak inspired her writing.


Jade checks out Instagram - the photo sharing app that comes armed with all the hipster-friendly effects that Dave wants. It basically takes the vintage concept of "instant Polaroids" snaps to a digital era where you can snap, upload and share your pictures via your iPhone.


Could this be the future of magazines? It's the perfect marriage of Jade's love for all things digital and Dave's deep appreciation for that glossy magazine style. 5mag is "the world's first digital lifestyle magazine" bursting with interactivity, video messages and interviews and yes, it even flicks like a real magazine.
