2018 has been a big year for the Take 5. So before I take a little break, I thought it was worth celebrating some of the greatest moments of the last 12 months, and Frankenstein a Turbo co-host. It’s honestly hard to keep the list to 7, but these conversations capture what I love about the Take 5. They can be at one moment hilarious, at another, devastating. What they always reveal, are the musical hearts of artists we love. Songs have a way of triggering and open up people’s memories, and there are many moments when – in the midst of playing these songs – some of our favourite musicians reveal something about themselves and their story that you’ve never heard before. You'll get a peek behind the scenes at the Big Day Out with official photographer Sophie Howarth, find out how Beck reacted the first time he heard Nirvana’s 'Smells Like Teen Spirit', hear what lesson in music Snoop Dogg taught Kamasi Washington, find out what happened when Dylan Lewis' mates would visit the set of Recovery, how Anohni’s ‘Drone Bomb Me’ changed the way Kimbra thought about her own music, what song completely blew Peaches' mind, and you’ll hear Ice Cube, and the moment that made him and 1200 people well up with tears in our first every live take 5, on stage at the Opera House. Beck: Nirvana - 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'Sophie Howarth: Magic Dirt - 'Super Tear'Kamasi Washington: Rick James - 'Bustin' Out (On The Funk)'Peaches: PJ Harvey - '50 Ft Queenie {4 Track Demo Version}'Kimbra: Anohni - 'Drone Bomb Me'Dylan Lewis: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - '2 Kindsa Love/Flavor {Live on Recovery 1997}'Ice Cube: Sam Cooke - 'A Change Is Gonna Come'

The Grates' Patience's growing pains songs
It’s fair to say that when I mention the name Patience Hodgson, you’re likely to break into a smile. That’s because the front woman for The Grates has always had the kind of energy that’s infectious. Whether you see her live, follow her on social media or hear her chatting on her podcast or in an interview, the joy that radiates from Pae is undeniable. Over more than a decade, Patience has entertained with her powerful voice and energetic presence, often dressed in wild colours and costumes bringing playfulness to every show. Along the way, she’s opened a business feeding south side Brisbane foodies, and started a family with her bandmate John. The Grates started quite literally as a garage band in the suburbs of Brissie, and music has taken Patience all over Australia and the world. With that in mind, and with a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their album Teeth Lost, Hearts Won, I asked Pae to Take 5 with “growing pains”. Songs that have sound tracked a turning point, that marked a moment of growth or change in her life.It’s a life that has taken to her to some very high, but also pretty low places…  the honesty you’ll hear in this Take 5 from Patience is raw, and it may be a challenging listen for some. Lifeline is there to help if you need it and are listening in Australia, on 13 11 14. Patience Hodgson is a living angel, and this Take 5 will make you fall in love with her and her spirit, even more.Tim Rogers - 'You've Been So Good To Me So Far'Giant Drag - 'This Isn't It'The Go!
