Record of the Week

This week's ROTW was chosen by Peter Coleman who presents The After Eight Show on Tuesday nights. It is 'Whispers' by Qiáo bù (pronounced Chow boo). Switch Dunmow has been given the worldwide radio exclusive on this track which only came out on Saturday (i.e. 26th January).

We usually like to pick newly-released tracks which have some kind of a local connection with Dunmow and Essex. On this occasion, we have chosen a track by a music producer who has become a devoted fan of The After Eight Show, has actively promoted the show widely in the US, and has introduced to the show other musicians who regularly collaborate with him in his music making.

He records under the name Qiáo bù and is not yet signed to any record label. He is based in El Paso, Texas. He's a talented music producer known for his unique house music and trap, dubstep, electronic, future bass productions. He started producing electronic dance tracks in his mid 20's.

After a series of singles, he released a 6 track EP called 'Sleepless Love' in November. You’ll find his music on Soundcloud and KKBOX. This track will be included on a future EP or album and Switch Dunmow has been given the exclusive right to be the first radio station to play it.

Switch Dunmow …..

Is the brain child of Jacky Rom, the Station Controller.
Over 4 years ago Jacky, who also runs the Arts Centre Dunmow, was struggling to let everyone know what goes on in The Arts Centre.
One day she thought “Let’s have a radio Station” and now 2+ years on it’s become a reality.  Switch Dunmow launched on Monday 6th of January 2014 with over 50 Volunteers. They were all amazed that over 3,000 people listened in the first month.

Now they are listened to by over 20 countries world wide and have over 34,000 listener sessions per annum!

Although Switch is a Community Radio Station, all the presenters love the idea of reaching further afield.

Switch Dunmow has a show for everyone, with easy listening throughout the day and live shows from 6pm.
