Inspired by a bit of ‘lockdown retail therapy’, August’s Punkified Show featured punk-style cover versions from the 6 Volumes of Punk Chartbusters album releases on the German record label Wolverine Records.
Knowing how fond certain members of the Surrey Hills Community Radio team are of Rick Astley, the show kicked off with a Punkified version of his mega-hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. And then managed to squeeze a further 16 tracks into the one hour programme, ending with a smile-inducing, toe-tapping version of the Bobby McFerrin classic ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’.
Past shows – playlists, photos and links to listen to previous shows can all be found on the Punkified Facebook page.
