Bradford Beat

On Bradford Beat we showcase the best of whatever music is out there – not just from our district but also beyond. Yes, even Leeds.

Presented by Simon Ashberry

We play the best new releases from further afield – all over the world – and pick out the exciting touring bands playing live in West Yorkshire.

Some of the local bands we’ve championed in recent times include Mush, The Delvaux, Wind-Up Birds, Signia Alpha, Glass Mountain, Team Picture, A Night In November, Bella Gaffney, Mi Mye, Angleo Palladino and many more.
