Trash Can Radio

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 3, 2016 by dazzlesoundproductions

Ever wondered how much red tape is involved in setting up a radio station?  Wonder no more – it’s a lot with Ofcom, PRS, MPC etc etc all getting up in your grill with demands for money you haven’t got.  Does that discourage my friend Mike Spenser who’s DAB labour of love is Trash Can Radio?  Course not.  TCR plays blues, punk, freakbeat, psychedelia, rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll and generally anything loud hard and trashy.  Run out of a studio in South London it doubles up with the more restrained Golden Radio during the day but at night lets rip (or all day over the web).  Mike showed me round recently, here he is in the nerve centre


where the magic happens.  There is a wonderous all-valve recording studio next door and various pieces of lush analogue machinery littering the cave.  I am working on a pre-edited show for Mike to help him fill the airwaves, but check the station out as you are sure to hear thrilling, scuffed rock sounds unlike any other.
