Show name: Bliss & That
Presenters names: Jo Bliss & Paul (Stolly) Stolworthy
When can we hear your show? It’s the 4th Sunday of each month from 2-4 pm.
What type of music can we expect to hear on your show?
Anything good! (in our opinion) From all eras! We’d like to think we’ll be playing things you wouldn’t normally hear on the radio.
What is the format of your show?
Chat, good tunes and probably biscuits will be involved somewhere along the line. Hopefully some interviews and discussions about vinyl finds. We both love crate diving. And requests when we get the hang of things.
Why should we listen to your show?
Because both Stolly and Bliss have a wide range of unusual tastes and knowledge. Bliss is old. Stolly isn’t.
How did your show come about?
Bliss had been nagged for years by other Phonic DJs as she ran a night in a local club for 8 years. She did a couple of stints with Sketch on the Sunday Scribble and loved it! Stolly runs an Indie Night every two months, which is a lot of fun. He seemed a natural choice for a sidekick. He’s dead funny too.
What goes on behind the scenes in the studio?
We suspect lots of heated discussions about how many Smiths/Morrissey tracks Stolly will be allowed to play in one show.
What has been you best on air moment? The first show I expect!
What has been your worst/ most embarrassing on air moment? The first show I expect!
Who is your favourite artist? Why?
Probably The Damned for Bliss. First band she ever saw live many moons ago and they’re still great live today. For Stolly, it’ll be The Smiths/Morrissey
What is your all time favourite album? Why?
Bowie’s Aladdin Sane for Bliss. It usually seems to be a controversial choice with people. Never skip a track. For Stolly, it’s The Smiths – The Queen Is Dead. “My mum bought it for me on tape when I was 12. The title grabbed me first. Then I was hooked after 20 seconds. Never looked back. Just means EVERY trip to Manchester involves a stop off at Salford Lads Club. I still have the tape.”
