shows // Roots, Rock, Reggae

Start the week off right with some of the best in early popular music. Tune in as Callum Mackay brings you everything from rockabilly to the golden age of Motown Records to reggae. Some call it 'oldies', but I just call it good music. No sound will be left unexplored. If it's old and it's good, chances are you can hear it here.

covers that got it right

Roots, Rock, Reggae // 17.05.10 // Covers That Got It Right

Cover songs are a part of music. Most of the time we hear a cover version of an already very good song and afterwards we wish we hadn't. But every so often, an artist comes along that does the song justice and delivers a version of a song that is just as good, if not better than the original. Tune into this episode to hear a selection of some of the cover versions that got it very, very right.

No theme this week. Just good music. Then again, that's how it should always be, isn't it?

Roots, Rock, Reggae // 08.03.10 // Feast

I'm feeling a bit famished this morning on Roots, Rock, Reggae, so look out for songs having plenty to do with food. The perfect recovery after a weekend of celebrating Subcity's 15th birthday party.

sick day

I was feeling rather ill for this episode, so rather than bombard you with sporadic coughing fits, I found it much better to just sit back and play you some music, albeit with one or two interjections.
