this week's shows on Mad Wasp Radio from 14 – 21 SEPTEMBER 2018 

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 5pm 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.

Sunday 11:00, Wednesday (new show) 20:00, Friday 18:00

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!

Certainly not! Interviews are always in English, and many of the songs are even sung in English. Intrigued? K-Pop is growing around the world quicker than you can say 'I'm a matha fatha Gentleman!' So why not stay ahead of the curve and tune in every week?
