I have two fantabulous radio shows which I’ve been running since December, I’ve not really shouted about them in case they sounded like a load of rubbish, it’s been a good few years since my last one you see. As people seem to be enjoying the shows and listening, all over the world bizarrely, I thought I’d now share them with you too. Today I’m starting with the Chicks Dig Jerks Radio Show.
The Chicks Dig Jerks radio show is an alternative show that features all of our favourite music from 1950s through to present day, with heavy emphasis on the 60s to 90s, and we try to offer a spotlight for emerging local talent as well.
As DJs and promoters who have been ‘doing our thing’ since 2002 you’ll often find us playing records at The Sun On The Hill on Bennetts Hill or taking in a local gig, I sometimes write about them here.
I’m joined by my bi-weekly co-hosts, Richard Bamber and Alice Rosenthal who both lean in drastically different directions in terms of their favourite musical periods, which keeps me on my toes. One thing is consistent, we are always hungover, and the music is always excellent.
We have features such as ‘Should This Have Been Left In The 90s’, ‘In The Garage’ and ‘Bamber’s Weird Song You’ve Never Heard Of’. We eat strange looking biscuits that we find in the studio, sing along to our songs and generally have a fine old time. We even play the odd request.
All of our old shows are up on Mixcloud, the latest show with Alice was about forgetting the misery of January and generally having a good time, have a listen here if you need perking up.
My latest show with Bamber, featured the incredible MeMe Detroit live in the studio, and you can listen to it here, it also includes mine and Bamber’s best gigs ever chat, which is pretty damn good obviously.
Myself and Bamber will be back live this Sunday with a psychedelic special this Sunday 7pm on BrumRadio.com
