News and Events

Record of the Week

This week's ROTW is a charity single released this week (i.e. 22nd October) by Red Velvet and it was suggested by Andy Presland who presents The Monday Mix.

Red Velvet are a Cambridge band who have released a charity single to raise money for the British legion. This single 'Letters From Walter' is based on letters sent to the singer's own grandmother from her brother, Private Walter Mabbutt, who died in combat on 22nd October, 1918 - exactly one hundred years ago. Walter grew up in Titchmarsh, a village in Northamptonshire.

Red Velvet is usually a 5-piece band, but this version is pared down to the essentials, to give the words full prominence:

vocals, guitar, banjo Les Ray; harmonica - George Harper; the words of Lance Corporal W. L. Mandeville - Deirdre Murphy.

The proceeds from sales of the CD (£5 per CD) will go to support the valuable work of the Riders Branch, Royal British Legion. The CD is on sale for £6.10 including P&P through the website of Red Velvet’s label Clunk and Rattle: http://www.clunkandrattle.com/

The After Eight Show - presented by Peter Coleman

The After Eight Show has been nominated for this year's Mixcloud Online Radio Awards in the category Best Online Music Show. Very excited!

As you may be aware, our claim is that we play 'Music You Just Don't Hear Anywhere Else!' It is almost exclusively NEW music and from unsigned artists, those just starting out or playing the sort of music that doesn't get them played on commercial radio stations.

We would appreciate it so much if you took the time and trouble to vote for us. We now have over 7 thousand followers on Twitter and a large number of those are musicians themselves for whom, we hope, we are providing a wider platform for their music to be heard. In the age of the charts being dominated by X Factor and The Voice, it is so important that REAL musicians making interesting, original music also have a chance.

So please VOTE for us using this link http://www.mora.fm/forms/music and, more importantly, listen to our show and discover new music that you don't hear anywhere else!

This week one year ago ….

A message from Jacky Rom

One year ago a disaster was on its way to the Magical Island and 2nd home of mine in St Maarten in the Caribbean.

I watched every webcam until it blew out and Hurrican Irma enveloped the Island.

The only medium left to me was the radio... so I hijacked a show and created this podcast.
