Sketchey’s Sunday Scribble with DJ Sketch and Jim
An aural massage for the morally bankrupt.

12:00 – 14:00
The Program with Spencer
Two hours of timeless strangeness and bewildering beauty, a journey through the ether to give airplay to some of the greatest and overlooked music of our time. It’s the genesis of a new type of radio, one that makes you think AND rock at the same time because radio is about music, not celebrity. Facebook

The Cat and Naomi Show
Colourful, engaging, fun and unique
| 2nd Sunday of each month |

T and The Silent Monkey
Muzak and musings from a body part and a monkey. Welsh on both counts. Seeking exile in Exeter. Unearthing a smorgasbord of music that’s been lost and forgotten (mainly forgotten!). The perfect soundtrack to your Sunday lunch…if you have a hiatus hernia. So, sit back, prolapse and tune in to Sonic Tonic.

Shake! with D J Deadly Marvin
Blaring out sounds from Doowop to Rawk and anything in-between that’s worth shaking a tail-feather at. Catch me at the Bike Shed Theatre Bar on the 3rd Saturday of the month or on when there’s a 5th Sunday in the month. Facebook.
