Januarys show is now online. We have a guest spot from DJ Mat of IMPLANT fame. The setlist and show archive is available in the shows section.


I can't appologise enough for the lack of updates to this site. it's been neglected for over 6 months and thats not helpfull to anyone.

Well, my new year's resolution is not to let that happen again. This site will be kept up to date with news about the show, and whatever myself and stef are getting up to.

I know a few of you like listening to the shows online, unfortunately the last few have run into technical problems when making the show archive. I'll try to get the playlists online for everyone to see but i wouldn't hold your breath about the actual sound files of the show. There's a slim chance i'll be able to recover those shows, but we'll just have to wait and see to be honest. Shows from this point on should appear online around the time the show airs, so keep looking.

Our show is now 2 hours long! Our new improved show can fit in much more of the same old music, nattering and interviews (when we find bands to bug!).

Januarys show will air at 10pm on thursday 22nd and will hopefully have a guest from the local dj crowd (if all goes well). Tune in to find out more details.

Firstly, appologies for being so quiet for a while, myself and stef have just been exceptionally rubbish and getting things done. We could quote all kinds of technical problems, we could even tell you our dog ate our homework, but you wouldn't beleive us, so we're just going to let your imagination run wild. The bottom line is that we just haven't got much done in the last few weeks. I know you're all fluffy smiley people out there and will forgive us, so stay tuned in, we're not going anywhere :).

The more watchfull of you will notice we didn't air a show last month. Well, thats life i guess, things happened and we didn't get it done. BCB kindly aired a re-run and we have made sure a shiney fresh show is going to happen this month.

The next show will be aired on thursday 21st November and a playlist and archive will be online here within a couple of days.
