Radio

Every Tuesday night between 8-10pm I will be hosting a series of new radio broadcasts called “Cult Classics” – a show bringing you a whole new world of music from the ages, and reminding you of the stuff you may have long forgotten! Nothing will be off the menu, from the 20’s through to the present day, and I’ll still be plugging great local and unsigned artists.

Come join me, 8-10pm, to catch the stories that made the soundtrack to our lives…

Listen in to the show by using the link below during broadcast hours (8-10pm on Tuesdays):


local/UNSIGNED/emerging ACTs

If you are an unsigned band looking for airplay you can submit your tracks to me in MP3 format ONLY (please note that any other formats, spotify links, soundcloud etc will not be listened to):

I cannot play them all, but always look to feature at least two emerging/unsigned/local artists in every broadcast. It could be you!
