Other Side Of The MIC - The Grinding Gears Duo


Every episode of the long-running everything-automobile show 'Grinding Gears' starts with 'you're listening to Pete (and Aaron)' - and today the spotlight swivels on them on Other Side of the MIC. Pete and Aaron are two car loving aficionados from Invercargill who can sit down and talk about cars for hours. But they're pretty shy about themselves, so Rach took the opportunity to find out more about them!

Pete and Aaron are not new to radio - they were both involved in local radio broadcasting on Infinity FM - run by a group of keen community members and characters earlier this century. When that finished up, our station manager (who loves everything motorsport) approached them about doing a show for car lovers down South. They're now 154 episodes in, and still loving it.

Find out more about them, where they come from, what they do, and enjoy a nice segue into the advantages of petrol, electric and hydrogen-fueled cars while you're at it here!

You can tune into Grinding Gears every Sunday at 5.30pm on Sundays, with a replay on Wednesdays at 9.30am. You can also find podcasts and binge-listen to your car-loving heart's content here!
