Your weekly adventure in sound! Each week I'll be presenting an hour's worth of classic tracks based on a different particular genre or theme, from classic British post-punk, to East Coast hip-hop, to 60 jazz, soul and funk, and everything in between. If you're already a fan of the weeks special focus then you're sure to hear some of your favourites. If you're not, then the show will be a great way to start!
This week, for the debut, I'll be playing a set of great 70s and 80s British post punk and shoegaze, so expect an hour of Joy Division, Public Image Limited, The Cure, Siouxsee and the Banshees, The Fall, Wire, Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and more awesomeness!
Listener participation is always appreciated, so if you have a personal post-punk favourite, then please, request it on air and I'll see if I can fit it in.

Alternate tracks help to make their points along with special guests and North/South divide based facts and news.

In order too justify the vast expense of time, effort, and finances I have invested on my long range wifi antenna.
