We Love New Music!
Eclectic Riff Reign Avenue
My guests in the CR studio in the first hour of the show will be Riff Reign. They have kindly agreed to travel all the way to Croydon to be on my show. You can follow them on Twitter: @riffreign and on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Riff-Reign/320588768145309?fref=ts James Bennett (keyboards) Peter Courcey (percussion & vocals) Richard Nettleship (guitars & vocals) David Wright (bass guitar) We're four guys who got together to record David's portfolio of songs - all written since December 2013. We released an album of 12 songs on 16 December 2014. Keith Martin guested on mandolin and melodeon on Down To The Town. Our album, called Riff Reign, is available at digital platforms such as iTunes, etc. We've more than enough material for our second album, of which several tracks are approaching completion. Our first album was quite varied, but we now seem to be developing a particular style of our own. Songs from the first album such as Last Night and Touchdown London are typical of our style. The band are based in South Yorkshire/North Nottinghamshire.
Croydon Matters
A magazine show which gets to the heart of what matters to local people here in the London Borough of Croydon. We mix local politics / news and current affairs with great music. Cafe Basmaccino in Norwood Junction station is under threat. We talk Rasheed Yaseen, owner. We find out why after 9 years, he may have to face the heart breaking prospect of shutting up shop for good. The Penge Festival returns this year, bigger and better than ever with more than 40 events. We talk to Chris O’Shannasy one of the organisers and discover that there really is something that will appeal to everyone. It’s approaching the 150 anniversary of Joseph Paxton, creator of the magificant Crystal Palace. We talk to John Greatrex who’s organising a series of events to commemorate the occasion. The former cinema at Crystal Palace has been the subject of a contentious campaign with a religious group as locals seek to try and fight the planning application to turn it into a church. Having been denied planning permission the owners are renting it as an events venue. Guest presenter Rachel Lawrence speaks to Hasson and Lissette, event organisers with Kitchen Angels to find out more.
The Trev & Ben Show
Join us every Sunday from 9am - 11am for two hours of two blokes making it up as they go along and waffling on about whatever comes into their heads, and when we run out of stuff to say, we'll bang on a top tune. We are your two mates in the pub and we want you to join the conversation, get in touch on the shout box, via twitter @TrevandBen or Facebook. Welcome to our world!!
