Listen Live Webcam


Live bands on the RUN.

A busy day at Phoenix FM today, as it was the start of the station legendary 24 hour caressive sessions event. From 9am Saturday till the same time on Sunday, the invited bands came to record a free 3 track session and this year it was at the former sports bar at the Brentwood centre; some bands event went on to play an acoustic set during a few of the Saturday Programmes – the fruits of their recorded labour are to follow…..

Twofers today was dedicated to the late Donna Summer, who we sadly lost last week – We heard ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘I feel Love’. 

Donna Summer

My Comedy show picks for this week……

Sean Hughes — “Life Becomes Noises” – 27th May 2012 • Southbank Centre

Sean Hughes’ dark, explosive style and quick-fire banter made him the youngest-ever winner of the Perrier award — and now he’s back with a brand new show called “Life Becomes Noises”.

My music pick for this week;

Mon/Tue 21/22 May

The Temper Trap – Koko, London

An atmospheric rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 2005, the band found worldwide success after prominent spots on festival line-ups including Reading and Leeds and South By Southwest.

Wed 23 May

Elvis Costello – Royal Albert Hall

A gig from Elvis Costello, one of the most influential songwriters of a generation. Bursting onto the scene in 1977 amid the new wave explosion, Costello has come a long way since his punk days. He is a distinguished lyricist who has written some of the most memorable songs and fiercely literate lyrics of all time.

Thu 24 May

The Enemy – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Chart-friendly proletarian rock from The Enemy.

Fri 25 May

The Horrors – O2 Academy Brixton

Mercury-nominated Victorian styled indie rockers with a debauched fifties presence onstage. They are a shocking blend of scuzzy punk and rock’n’roll and their riotous sound is underpinned by heavy organ melodies.
