The Prognosis Show
was a Progressive rock
radio show hosted by Richard Stockwell which aired on Contact 89 FM, a student radio station based at the University of Waikato
in Hamilton, New Zealand
. It occupied the 10pm to Midnight slot on Saturday nights from around August 1996 to February 1997.
The title 'Prognosis' was derived from the obvious medical term and from the genre Progressive rock
but it also featured many other genres including Space music
, Psychedelic music
, Electronic music
and Experimental Music
Contact FM was going through great change during the period that the Prognosis Show aired and eventually Contact adopted a much more commercial format. This resulting in the dropping of many popular 'alternative' shows, including the Prognosis Show.
