Welcome to the fourteenth episode of the Cherry Red Radio show in association with Boogaloo Radio, Almost Blue Radio, Slack City, Bay FM, Kalypso Gold, Ship Full Of Bombs, WRFN1025, WRFNGOLD, Mad Wasp Radio, Target Radio, Radio Six International and Delicious Agony.

Host Iain McNay is joined by Head of Press & Comms Matt Ingham for a look at all things Cherry Red and beyond. An eclectic show as always, this month we have choice cuts from the world of progressive rock with plays from the likes of Jon Anderson, No Man, T2 and the Jane Getter Premonition. There’s plenty of punk from bands such as Dead Kennedys and The Exploited, and as usual we have an exclusive play from the fascinating archive of Joe Meek – The Tea Chest Tapes. There’s plenty more crammed into the two hour show taken from recent releases on the label or just from our own record shelves at home.

As usual Cherry Red Radio brings you two hours of music inspired by one of the most eclectic and prolific labels in the world.

Iain and Cherry Red are staunch supporters of buying music in physical form and where possible only play music that can be bought on CD or vinyl.
