There’s a lot of talk about local radio getting worse and all the specialist shows getting shut down so we are pleased to report that journalist Simon price has got his own show on BBC South- it’s online as well. Simon breaks the mould in lots of ways and this show is no exception- there is no landfill indie or the warm real ale of post Peel 6 music underground rock- this is a glitzy glam and colourful and very eclectic show…
Simon Price hosts BBC Introducing: The South TONIGHT, 7pm-9pm,
He says, ‘Tonight’s show features the wonderful MARTIN ROSSITER live in session, as well as music from Foe, Raised On Replicas, O.W.L.S., Donna Summer, Patrick Wolf, Bigtopp, Dear Prudence, Screama Ballerina, Fairport Convention, The Go! Team, Abi Wade, British Sea Power, Englane, Passenger and ABBA (roughly in that order).
We’ll also be hearing all about the Brighton Festival and Fringe from Melita Dennett (who is guest-presenting next week”Ës show), we’ll get Music News from David Miller, and I’ll be giving you info on upcoming festivals in the region such as Blissfields and Meadowlands.
