Our Top 10 Songs last week

Boss Selecter

Hey fellow humans and ska addicts. We are taking a little break from broadcasting to ensure that we can bring you the best possible service in 2021.

We will return early 2021 bigger and better than ever.

Make sure that you check out our blog to keep up with what is happening in the world of ska and Northern Soul. We will do our best to update on a daily basis.

Also, we have a growing community on our Facebook community page

Thanks for all the listens

See ya soon

Mr P 

Thanks to those who have bought merch or treated me to a 'pint', we are starting to broadcast beyond the UK. If you can't hear us... please use the links at the bottom of the page - perhaps a VPN might help?


Please consider buying / downloading music from the bands we play. It is free to listen, but not free for me to broadcast. If you are able to spot me the price of a pint or a coffee then that will go towards affording licences to broadcast further afield and buy even more music. Please do not feel obliged to - the point of this station is to champion the ska and Northern Soul scene. But if you can... KTF 

We are proud to support the Specialized project. The Specialized Project supports The Teenage Cancer Trust, National Foundation for Youth Music and Tonic Music for Mental Health. Please click on the link (to the left) and donate.      *This will take you to an external site.
