Radio Clash is probably the longest continuously running music podcast (since Nov 2004). Originally only about mashup culture, but since extended to a live music station and blog, talking about politics, sex, drugs and rock and roll. All posts are probably at least a little bit NSFW, because if it's safe for work, then why post it?
LOVE. Mark Professor, production by WrongTom (he’s doing reggae now? Got one of his first LP in my collection) waxing lyrical about public transport! And on David Rodigan’s show too – soon to be released on new Reggae/Dancehall label RongoRock. WANT!
Love this short documentary about Bristol reggae & RnB legend DJ Derek – before Rodigan there was Derek Morris DJing classic ska, reggae and soul tunes. Also into real ale and buses? Yay! Although in a ‘Bus Soundclash’ John would win for bus knowledge – since he’s been ‘on the buses’ since the 70′s or 80′s! Let the battle commence
Although I recorded this last week I was so busy only just got round to posting it now, the 2nd of the 3 back to back (ish) shows…and this is a companion piece to RC 167: Not Here Right Now, with a downtempo look at that terrible events in Norway and the death of Amy Winehouse…where words fail and all you have is music left.
Rather than focusing on the gorey lurid drive-by moneyshots that the media specialises I tried to make more a downbeat meditative show (a calm lake to the last show’s crashing sea) with hope in it’s eyes, partying and throwing glitter into the face of fascism but also exploring the darker and angrier side of a slightly schizophrenic happening – but at no point giving the platform to madness.
