In concert with Chris Stagg (1st Sunday of the month)


Host: Chris Stagg

I’ve always preferred – and therefore collected – live/concert albums/singles to studio recordings. Songs are often performed differently, or for longer, or unexpected cover versions, all in a concert setting.
So this show is my chance to play my record/tape/cd/download collection and talk about it! And to have some great guests join me from time to time. It’s a privilege to do. And I love it!

Playing the best acts to appear on the big stage







50 Shades of Rock (3rd Sunday of the month)

Host: Mike Edwards

I have been buying and playing music since the 1960s. My music will cover the acoustic country blues of the 1920s through to the urban electric blues and R&B of the 1950s and onwards including Country, Rockabilly, Rock and Roll and American folk, Americana and Alternative Country.  English folk music also features and don’t be surprised to hear some reggae,ska  and even classical music thrown into the mix. Overarching everything will be American and British rock.
