We have lots to tell you!

First of all, there’s the latest radio show, which inevitably contains a bit of Prince, but TBH there’s something in there for everyone as we veer from rock to electronica to grime to disco Beatles. Described as “Top quality light entertainment” by Phil Cope, which puts us up there with Eurovision, right?

Then there’s Front Room Disco at Kirkgate Centre on Saturday 21st May, hosted by us! Yes, Wil Oddsox has entrusted us with his baby, the daft bugger. Expect disco chaos. We haven’t had a good dance in ages, we’ll be like crazy monkeys let out of the cage.

Finally, we’re also hosting Record Club on Saturday 28th May, also at Kirkgate Centre. The event is 33 1/3 Revolutions, so rock up with your political music and social commentary on vinyl. Wonder how many versions of Two Tribes you all have?

Hope to see you at one or all of the above!
