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.

Wap Crowd Scene

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.

One thought on “Spirit of the Wapentake

    1. Graham Marshall Author

      Hi All. Its been a blast launching and co-presenting Spirit of the Wapentake with Sinead and more latterly with Phil, Andy and Bona. That said. 10 years is a long time to do the same thing even if it is presenting arguably the greatest radio rock show in the world.
      Enjoy the future guys. I certainly will, presenting and producing my “poncey” science show ‘The Live Science Radio Show’ every Saturday morning at 11 also here at Sheffield Live.
