LONDON CALLING, Established 2006 plays the best in recent and decent ‘choons’ from the UK every Sunday from 8pm to 9:30pm. We showcase an eclectic mix of alternative music based around a weekly theme, and interspersed with witty repartee(!), quizzes and facts. We go alphabetically from Britpop-legend Damon Albarn to this year’s Mercury Music prize-winners Young Fathers; geographically from the eccentric electronica of Cornwall’s Luke Vibert to Aberdeen’s psychedelic dance band The Shamen; and chronologically from 80’s seminal indie darlings The Smiths to the garage rock of mid-teens new boys Royal Blood … and everything in between!
“London Calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared, and battle come down
London Calling to the underworld
Come out of your cupboard, you boys and girls …”
… And listen on Sundays at 8pm on CFRC 101.9FM*
* Alright, The Clash didn’t write the last line, but they ruddy well should have done.
