Synth City: Empty Head


On this weeks little old show; the last one of November 2017… I had a ‘shortish micro’type look back at the recent gigs I attended; well I let the music talk– as I reflected on mammoth event, that was Depeche Mode at their London O2 gig, and the joyisly intimate Zigfrid von Udderbelly gig, for the Empathy Test  x2 album launch night, which was a really great night among the smoke machine and glits. I spoke about bumping into someone who used to work with Depeche Mode, and this led me to an Empty head moment, as that penny didn’t drop as quick as it should during our chat; listen to the mixcloud, hear more on what I mean- and who…

New music wise, we had brand new album and single tracks from: Rodney Cromwell – Chronica – Modovar – Charlotte Someone feat Lokka Vox – James Parker –  Matt Mancid + Color Theory – EmT and of course, a few more tuneful remix delights, with the odd classic artist. If you didn’t get to actually tune into the live radio show, then please see the included  rerun via Mixcloud, under the tracklisting;

About Rob Harvey

I've been involved in broadcasting as a presenter or producer since 1989, on Restricted Service Licence stations and hospital radio through to a few other independent radio stations. I have been on air with Phoenix FM since October 2009 and currently present Synth City, a weekly show which specialises in electronic music but without being a traditional specialist show - think of music like Depeche Mode and Chvrches presented in a light-hearted "breakfast show" fun style. When I'm not at Phoenix FM I provide specialist event DJ support and freelance radio production services.
