Airing on Pure 107.8 FM in Stockport, Sonic Bandwagon is a 2 hour radio show brought to you every Friday from 10pm GMT that focuses on bringing you the best in underground music from all over the world whilst remaining true to North West bands/artists. The show is presented by Andy Barnes, Mike Ainscoe and Nigel Cartner, whose varied and eclectic tastes means listeners are treated to a variety of genres such as rock, blues, folk, indie, prog, metal, psychedelia, punk, alt rock, and even oldies from the golden age of music. We’re sure to cater for your collective tastes.
In addition to playing the best music we are privileged to find out about, we like to mix it up from time to time by inviting bands/artists on our show to either be interviewed, perform live, or both.
The radio show also has few fun features within the two hour segment. We have our ‘gig of the week’ where we choose and play a song from the best upcoming gig in Greater Manchester area for the upcoming week.
We also have our ‘Rediscovered’ section where we will play a couple of lesser known songs from well known bands/artists, which doesn’t really get played on other radio stations.
With hundreds of written reviews, features and interviews between us, as well as some extremely talented photography, Sonic Bandwagon not only boasts a broadcasting voice, but also provides an outlet to be a Fanzine to help promote and write about the underground (and sometimes more famous) bands we collectively love. See Latest News and SB Press for updates as to what’s going on in the music world and what we’ve been covering.
As well as promoting bands/artists, Sonic Bandwagon recognises the importance of those that work in the background to help deliver the best new music to the fans. The Sonic Bandwagon Network shows a variety of photographers, event organisers, promoters, PR agencies, fanzines, management and venues etc that we help support, so bands as well as fans can have a direct route to the best in these areas of expertise.
So jump onboard The Sonic Bandwagon and be taken on a ride where we bring you a plethora of great underground music for your discovery, but be warned to expect occasional turbulence, although offset with periods of sheer calm and tranquillity.
