All times are British Summer Time (BST). Programmes and timings may be subject to change (particularly if we press the wrong button). And, in case you were wondering, because one or two of us were big fans of Ready, Steady Go, our week (and weekend) starts at 6pm on a Friday.

Cabinet Of Curiosities

Historically, the powerful and rich liked to gather together all kinds of strange artifacts from around the world, to show off their wealth and education. These items were sometimes genuine archaeological treasures and natural wonders - others, bunkum fakes that would make PT Barnum blush! All these items would be jumbled together in a specially designed cabinet –they were rarely organised in any categories we'd recognise today –their proximity was solely based on how well they went together and if they formed a theme. So that's the format of Cabinet Of Curiosities. Each week, there will be a subject given. The idea is that you can pick something that you think goes with the theme.

THE TUDOR MUSIC HOUR

Heather Teysko explores the 16th century through the lens of song and music.

But the best part about the show is that its 100 percent safe for work (not that we really mind!)

Sunday 00:00, Friday 11:00, 

Stepping Out

DJs Ceasar Flores, Joe Dorgan and Deady Page present a weekly show of new and retro alternative, dark wave, synth, new wave, goth and more! Stepping Out was broadcast in El Paso, Texas on 89.5 KXCR in the 80s and 90s. It only had 10,000 watts…so you couldn’t hear the station very well in certain parts of the city. In the early 90s on Sunday nights 8pm-12am (according to the U.S. Berch ratings) Stepping Out was #1 and had 25% of the listening audience in the city… it was all word of mouth. And now the whole world can hear them on Mad Wasp Radio!
