Various people have mentioned that I don't cover the local scene as much as I did and that's true. I Don't Hear A Single with it's largely Power Pop and Pop Rock remit has spread it's tentacles worldwide in search of the new and under appreciated artists. However I do know a man who can.
Cliff Howarth is a good friend and has long been a supporter of the Liverpool and North West Scene. His show on Maghull Radio attracted a wide audience and now he's branching out. Radio Radio will still provide his mix of local artists old and new, with a good dose of Classic Tracks to accompany them.
His show has now moved to a podcast on Anchor FM and Episode 3 is up now. You can also listen to the first two episodes there and hear some archive interviews. There is also a link on the site to take you to an additional ten apps that you can access the broadcast from including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Overcast and TuneIn. You can access the site here.
Radio Radio is an ace listen and I'm hoping it will follow the I Don't Hear A Single Radio show on it's new adventures when that returns next week. There'll be more about that and the exhaustive new IDHAS things during next week. In the meantime please do give Cliff's show a listen.
