Created and presented live every weekfor the last 10 years by Graham and Sinead
Graham has now done a ‘whispering Bob Harris moving to his new ‘Live Science Radio Show’ on Saturday morning at 11 and its up to Sinead, Andy and Bona to keep the spirit alive.
Our mission is (as it always was) to ROCK SHEFFIELD’S SOCKS OFF!!!!
we play the best rock music from the last 40 years or so as well as letting you know the latest rock news, gig reviews and local rock gig information. We also publicize new local, national and international rock bands that come to our attention.
Each show is painstakingly researched and lovingly crafted (Yea Right). Unfortunately, all that goes out of the window as soon as the sliders are cranked up. Hopefully, during the following 2 hour rock-fest we play some of the greatest music ever recorded.
The Wap, the Buccaneer Bar and Rebels are long gone and some of us may be looking a bit worse for wear, but the Sheffield rock scene is still alive and kicking with great rock pubs and live music venues all over the place.
We love the classic rock of the Wapentake era but we also love all the new rock springing up everywhere. The metal / Heavy rock scene is definitely in the ascendency and this is also part of what we are about.
