Kevin Blackatini and the Frigids

Kevin Blackatini was star radio DJ Kevin Black, while The Frigids came from Radio Hauraki’s creative team. Together they concocted novelty hit ‘The Fridge’ which spoofed Deane Waretini’s chart topping 1981 single ‘The Bridge’. Their exercise in domestic appliance love was written by Kim Adamson, Tom Davidson and Hugh Walsh, with Adamson providing the vocal and Blackie as frontman. Despite the kazoo playing, the endeavour did have a serious side, with proceeds going to the family of a colleague recently killed in a car crash. Kevin Black died in 2013.
