One of the most important shows on Contact 89FM for exposing Hamilton music was Urban Jangle, a show that featured Hamilton music exclusively. The show was initiated and run for several years by Adam Hyde, from August 1993 to late 1996, on Monday nights from 7 to 8pm. The title of the show was taken from the song Urban Jangle by Book of Martyrs, which can be found on their 1991 Purified Seven Times release. During NZ music week (which was started and originally recognised only by student radio), Urban Jangle played host to live-to-airs from a number of bands. Some of these songs were released on the Inside the Wireless cassette and The Fridge CD.
