The result was a beautiful Metal Valkyrie with a bad attitude, a love of Heavy Metal, a creative streak a mile wide and an adoration of partying.
Sammi loves to make people happy, which is why she adores playing requests on her show whenever she can.
Sammi is a firm believer that today’s up n coming acts are tomorrow’s stadium and festival headliners and loves to give them as much airplay as possible in order to help them achieve that mutual goal.
Sammi’s besties are Jack Daniels and Jim Beam.
Metal Till Death
Candy Roxx (aka Mizz Hyde)
Triggered by an overdose of rock music from childhood. Candy is always searching for new music to feed her Hydeside. She’s always encouraging others to do the same, as she is all about individuality – the outcasts, the misfits, the freaks, etc we are all different in our own way, but I’d rather be my true self than some fake. So, whether you see me with wild red hair or not, I’m still the same person – no matter what I dress in. I have a wicked sense of humour, I’m all for having a laugh and letting my Hydeside out as much as possible.
I’m so pleased to be part of the Voodoo family and can’t wait to show you the voodoo I do. Candy and the Rock factory for my album reviews and interviews. Mizz Hyde’s. Welcome to the Hydeside.

Haaji Ka Halva
Haaji Ka Halva! She’s a part of Liverpool based percussion group Busk With Us, but is now venturing into her solo music journey. Brought up in between Pakistani and British culture, she mashes the two together to reinvent sounds from her childhood with present electronic music, creating an almighty non-stop boogie.
Sean McGee first found music as a boy when he was bought a cassette recorder for a birthday present.
That recorder enabled him to actually make his own radio shows, introducing the songs and even interviewing himself as various, distinguished guests!
By his early teens, he joined a friend group who spent weekends in sweaty bedrooms, strumming cardboard guitars to the best albums of the day. Iron Maiden, Scorpions or Led Zeppelin were the usual stable “strum fest” of the era. True halcyon days!
His late teens saw him actually with a real guitar and from those times forward he’s never ever looked back. As a member of many rock and metal bands, Sean has played some wonderful gigs and has made a huge amount of friends along the way.
These days he’s to be found in cosmopolitan Norwich, recording in his home studio, but life still keeps moving forward and, as is often the way, life tends to repeat itself.
Sean is now hosting a “real” radio show, The MONDAY MODAL MELTDOWN, playing tunes by such musicians as have inspired him to play guitar himself.
In his own words:
“I wanna give something back, make you smile and just get everyone inspired, just like it was when I was a boy”
DJ Darren Joyce
Darren discovered his passion for Rock and Metal as a teenager back in ’79, just as the NWOBHM movement swept the genres back to the forefront of the wider public consciousness. Always fiercely passionate about Rock from the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s, his love of Heavy Prog Rock from that era also still burns brightly. Darren is very pleased and happy to be a part of the Voodoo Radio family.
Dennis Jarman, fast approaching 59 but not acting like it! Music is my life, always has, always will be. Been to hundreds of concerts since seeing Motorhead in 1980.
A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away (Solihull actually) Grant Orino entered existence with a mission to bring New Romantic, Synthpop, glamtastic tunes to the ears of Voodoo Radio’s listeners. In his time, he has worked as a club promoter, an intergalactic space invader, a deadly assassin, and as a customer service rep. In a call centre.
Hold on tight for Scary Monsters and Super Geeks every Tuesday night!
Orino will be spinning tunes and chatting to special guests from 7pm till 9.
Be there or be in Red Square!
DJ for Oh No! Not Garage and Hardcore Punk
Started the show in the first covid lockdown
Has a respectable daytime job (Finance Director), becomes a garage/hardcore punk at night (punk bore)
First love Hair metal (Motley crue, Gamma Ray), moved onto Thrash in the mid 90s, True metal in 2000s and finally punk in the 2010s when i realise three quarters of my CDs (what are they?) were punk influenced metal/rock. Also likes a pint of real ale (sad git).
The Dark Cookie.
Neil “The Dark Cookie” Cook. Rock music is always in my head, it’s in my blood, it is my life. Having always had rock and roll in my ears, it is different today, from my formative metal years of the 80s. From ACDC to Amon Amarth, The Stray Cats to Slayer, Meat Loaf to Motorhead, Whitesnake to The Wildhearts, if it rocks you’ll hear it on my show. OK perhaps not Nickleback…
Hi I’m Nicky,
Mum of 5 – Grandmother of 13
For a long time, my family has come first for me, but I’ve always carried the passion of music in my heart – turning to music in the highs and lows of life. For many years I have been part of the Manchester Rock/Alternative scene, getting to know promoters, bands and DJs. With this knowledge of people in the industry, I believed the scene had become stale, and thousands of brilliant artists were being ignored, while the same old music was played, and bands were covering the old songs, but not doing their own thing, so I tried to open this up for new bands to be heard.
I started promotion and trying to get bands played in clubs I was involved in or ran myself, ‘Back from Hell’ which I was promoting and helped run for a few years, before moving on to my own adventures at first ‘CrossXover’, and then ‘Decades of Rock’.
The Manchester scene was in turmoil after our beloved Jilly’s night club suddenly closed overnight, and people seemed to be lost as to where to spend their nights out. It wasn’t just a club – it was a community, and being part of that community, I was going to try to do something to help.
Due to being naive and too trusting, I was taken advantage of and became very ill. Now risen from the ashes, and with fresh fight in my heart, I see a great opportunity to help rebuild this Radio station. Voodoo Radio Online has given me a reason to once again love all music, and to realise for all the bad people I came across, there are also so many lovers of music, truly passionate people, who are willing to come together, and form one amazing team.
I thank everyone for coming onboard and help build something for all to share in and enjoy. We do this for you music lovers, and to keep in mainstream music alive and on the Air. Please help us build the Voodoo family, and keep our Music, no matter which genre, alive. Be good to one another, stay safe, and keep on making the music we love to enjoy.
Hi I’m DJ TC and my name is Tim!
I hail from sunny Liverpool, and I have lived here all my life. I’ve been a musician from a very early age, and my first rock record was ‘Hysteria’ by the mighty Def Leppard. From there I moved onto heavier genres, from Metallica and Megadeth into Death and Carcass, but then the 90’s fully hit me, and Grunge became my go-to genre! From the obvious ‘Big Four’, Alice In Chains are very much my bag with their blend of metal and alternative rock, but I do love so many bands from the 90’s alternative rock scene, that there are too many to mention!
I have been in bands since I was the tender age of 16, have played lead guitar in bands such as Zuprowski Connection, and Rain May Fall, supporting the likes of Testament, Hatebreed and Uli Jon Roth. Now I am an active member of the Groove Rock band Attic Theory, who won Planet Rock’s Best New Band of 2020.
My shows will feature the best of 90’s heavy music, along with some deep cuts and rarities. I’ll also be throwing in some personal favourites from many other eras and genres – so keep listening!
Grunchtime will be on Fridays at midday!
My first memory of liking music is 50 years ago when I was 4. I used to walk round the garden/street where I lived singing Gary Glitter’s ‘Do You Want To Be In My Gang?’ such an infectious song that was (pity he went the way he did later in life….PRIZE TWAT!!). From there it was liking bands such as The Sweet, T-Rex, Terry Jacks, Pilot and Slade along with Come To Chigley soundtrack and We Are The Diddy Men (lol)
I also remember going to my Grandparents and stumbling across an old 50’s record player, that used to belong to my Mother, and finding a stack of 7 inch singles next to it. I worked out how this contraption worked and enjoyed such sounds as Cathy’s Clown by the Everly Brothers, Distant Drums by Jim Reeves and a whole host of Cliff Richard songs.
By the age of 8 in 1976 I had found ABBA, ELO, Status Quo which was ‘music to my ears’. I Had a dalliance with such things as Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and Frigging In The Rigging a couple of years later but I decided that Hard Rock and then Heavy Metal courtesy of Motorhead via Bomber and Overkill then Ace of Spades albums was my ‘thing’.
1979 going into 1980 was such a fantastic period to find new heavy music. Such bands as Saxon, Rainbow, Sammy Hagar, Scorpions, Van Halen, Whitesnake, AC/DC and UFO etc all came to my attention, buying as many singles as I could from the local Doncaster market stalls, Angie’s Records shop and Fox’s Records with my pocket money. Then getting a Binatone Studio 5 HiFi system from Woolies for my birthday, road testing it in the shop with a copy of Hardware by Krokus, awesome or what!!
The 80’s saw me avidly collecting vinyl records that was anything to do with Rock whether that be Classic Rock, NWOBHM, Traditional Metal, Hard Rock, AOR, Prog, Pomp Rock, Southern Rock, Hair Metal or Glam Metal etc. Also I discovered the Friday Rock Show in 1979 hosted by one of my idols Tommy Vance. I would listen intently with my little transistor radio under my pillow, 10pm til Midnight awaiting all the fantastic bands new and old that TV on the radio would play and taping as many broadcasts as I could thinking one day I would love to do his job lol!
The same goes for going to concerts. Over the last 40+ years I have seen virtually all the classic bands of the late 70’s and 80’s. Which got me into to playing the guitar and starting my own bands a good few years later. I got my first guitar when I was 10 years of age so it took a while, unfortunately, working/married life got in the way!
Currently, I am the Jay Jay French in my awesome tribute band to Twisted Sister who are called Twisted System.
So there you have it, I am still collecting the vinyl, still collecting the guitars and amps (to the chagrin of my good lady lol) and now I am looking forward to bringing you 2 hours of my favourite tracks from my 50+ years of listening to the best music in this whole Goddamn universe!
Keep Rocking…..Stay Hungry!
Michael A. Palmer
Michael A. Palmer has been in the Entertainment Industry for over three decades. First as a stand-up comedian in the 1990’s, then as a music journalist from 2000 until 2012 where he lived and worked in The United Kingdom, Australia, and eventually made it back to the United States. In 2013 Michael started his business, “Outlaw Renegade Nation” which began as a podcast and eventually evolved into a 24 hour radio station, ”Outlaw Renegade Radio”, that plays nothing but up and coming bands from around the world. Michael is also a published author of short stories and is currently working on his first novel.
I’m Carl and my rock and roll journey began in the mid ‘80’s, when a school pal lent me killers by Iron Maiden on tape, and I never looked back. I quickly moved on to thrash metal and death metal.
In about ‘92/’93 I started going to “Jilly’s” in Manchester and quickly became a regular, very rarely missing the legendary all-nighters on Friday. It was here that I kind of fell into DJing.
I was asked to help out when “Rockage UK” started their tenure at the club. Initially I was playing bits and bobs of thrash for them in the classic rock and metal room, this turned into doing the full night in the back room on Fridays and alternate Saturdays downstairs.
I joined “Rockage” and over the next few years we successfully set about putting rock nights on at mainstream clubs across the northwest, including Stockport, Sheffield, Bolton and Stoke-On-Trent.
Due to work commitments all round, “Rockage” wound up, and after a brief hiatus I took on the classic rock room at “Rock Kitchen” in Manchester. I stayed here for a couple of years before taking a break from DJing again.
“Back From Hell” came next, with a shift in the scope of music I was playing. Playing nu-metal, pop punk, metal, thrash, goth, punk, industrial, grunge, pretty much everything but traditional classic rock.
What you’ll get from my show is all of that and more. Think about all those tracks that got you singing, dancing, moshing, head banging, wrecking, slamming or just tapping your foot in whatever club you went in, that’s what you’ll get from me.
The Electric Discordian
The Electric Discordian dwells in Discordian Towers somewhere orbiting Manchester in the North
of England. He has been a fan of all kinds of music from his early years, so it only seemed right he
found work in rock nights across Manchester, as well as Ska night and some weddings! He had now
settled into a more stable routine firing music into the Ether for RadioCrown and now Voodoo
Radio where he provides all the crazy brain melting tunes your heart desires.
The other important members of the team are Mrs Discordian who is a constant source of support
and quiet tutting if Miles Davis goes anywhere near a Turntable and his indispensable producer who
doesn’t allow her lack of ability to speak and Thumbs to prevent her from having an opinion on
playlists and occasionally kicking vital equipment onto the floor. But she willing to work for Cat
Its nice to be here, and to share my Radio Gnome Invisible with you all.

I have also had many years doing radio,with Planet Mosh, Bloodstock Radio, Metal Gods TV radio,Forebrand RockRadio and maybe others I have forgotten about. I try to bring a mix of old and new from Classic rock to present day and occassionally try to have special guests.
Est. 2005, Metal Gods TV is a cross-media platform specialising in reviews, interviews, and promoting of Heavy Metal and Rock music

Chris “The Animal” Price
Born in September of 1970 I was first introduced to the heavier side of rock and roll at a very early age thanks to my brother who is 8 years older than me. Black Sabbath, KISS, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Rainbow, the list gos on and on. My love for music came at a very early age when I taught myself how to play a few things on the piano then graduated to the six-string beast that would make my life have meaning, THE GUITAR!
I have always looked deeper into music. I was fascinated by the GUITAR GODS and really appreciated what a guitar can do in the right and wrong hands. Randy Rhodes was and still to this day is my guitar hero. Even though players such as Ace Frehley, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Ronnie LeTekkro, Glenn TIpton & KK Downing just to name a few have molded how I approached music.
My gift of music knowledge has always been a strong side of me and yes, I have been known to ramble about music but it is my passion. The 80s shredders changed music to be my favorite era of music. The ‘Big Hair-Ocolyps’ show is my salute to the musicians and bands that made my generation fun and exciting! Being in my early 50’s I want to help carry the torch of our generation and keep what we founded alive and well KRANK IT UP!!!!!
My name is Gil Sanchez I am 58 years old and I live in San Diego Ca, USA. . I have been listening to Mod/Ska/Punk/Northern Soul music since 1980. I will be playing mostly oldies but goodies thrown in with a few new bands. Sit back and relive the music of your youth or be turned on to some new great music that will hopefully get you out of your seat and groove with the music.
Magic Mark Yandle
The Psychedelic World of Magic Mark Saturdays 11pm – 1am
Mark is much like Dr Who … he is a man who also travels through time and space in his own unique and otherworldly way, surrounded by likeminded companions who treasure his wild and inimitable perspective on life, the universe, and everything.
As Mark himself says … “What I do on my radio shows is transport or, perhaps even, Astral project people of all ages into my world, so they might be a part of a timeless generation that lives on today in the hearts and minds of everyone who still believes in peace and love and, of course, grooviness”.
The songs he spins are primarily from the 1960’s and 70’s, but please don’t think he is DJ’ing classic rock radio shows. That would imply he plays old music and that he takes people down memory lane. No, nothing could be further from the truth. What he plays is like fine wine. No matter the age, it is always perfect, always appetising and always in tune with the best of one’s life, as it is today.
Mark is a musical mystic, a man who has both lived it and still breathes it. Again, as the man himself is quick to point out … “You are not going back in time babies, you are in time, and the groove is on thanks to the magic of the Woodstock Generation”
The Laveau Lounge Sundays 6pm – 8pm
Mike Bowden loves the blues – they tell his story. He’s spent his life walking in their shadow. He doesn’t go looking for trouble, but it’s always coming his way. He’s the last of the independents. A little Dr Jekyll, a little Mr Hyde. Down by the river, down by the banks of the Charles river, that’s where you’ll find him, along with lovers, muggers and thieves. He remembers Paris in ’49. The Champs Elysee, Saint Michel, and a bottle of Beaujolais wine. He’s the one they say can fade the heat, the one they all know just can’t be beat.
If it sounds like I’m talking in clichés, it’s because Mike embodies the blues, the soul of the music runs in his veins richer than blood. From Robert Johnson through to Joe Bonamassa, and from The Very Reverend Billy F Gibbons through to Eric Gales, he knows exactly where it’s from, where’s it’s been, where it’s at, and where it’s going. His appetite and knowledge are second to none, and he genuinely loves the blues with a deep and abiding passion. Take hold of your John the Conqueror root, wave your Mojo hands, and tune in for the very best blues anywhere, here on Voodoo Radio.
The Slippery Slope Thursdays 7pm – 9pm
NJ’s love of rock and metal started at school. At a young age he became a fan of Queen, but once he was played some Iron Maiden and AC/DC in the playground one day, he found himself hopelessly hooked on all things hard and heavy from that moment!
Since then rock music has been a big part of his life, be it drumming for various bands playing covers or original songs, or DJ’ing on the radio playing other peoples’ songs! He also has a love for ‘the roar of the greasepaint … the smell of the crowd’, and thoroughly enjoys acting and directing in theatre, as it is another huge passion in his life.
Cutting his teeth on a local radio station, where he developed a liking for the craft. NJ then moved to the internet radio station Nusakan Radio. There, he learned a great deal more about broadcasting and about the music he loves to play too!
He is far too modest to say it for himself, but he is one of the founders of Voodoo Radio. When pressed for a quote – he simply said: “I am dead chuffed to be able to bring my rock and metal show, “The Slippery Slope” to VOODOO RADIO!”
The Freak Room Saturdays 7pm – 9pm
Music means everything to Roo.
She’s a lover of small grassroots festivals and gigs and can often be found laying down the grooves between bands at gigs and festies.
Away from music, Roo supports teenagers with learning disabilities, a job which she adores.
So, welcome to the Freak Room, for all your psychedelic needs.
You’ll hear psychedelic rock (the new alongside the old), psych rock, space rock, krautrock, 60’s garage & freakbeat and whatever Roo feels like playing.
Roo is a founding member of the team and a sonic guerrilla at the very frontline of strangeitude here at voodoo radio.
Free your mind and the rest will follow…..

Wayne is something of a legend within the Punk and Hardcore scene. He is the founder member and bass guitarist for UK hardcore heroes DOCTOR & THE CRIPPENS. Famed for their crazed stage shows and riotous music, UK DJ legend John Peel was even a fan! You may even know him better from his band stage name ‘Wayne Crippenski’.

The entity known to earth-dwellers as The W.O.B. used to present a radio show called The Graveyard Drift here on Voodoo Radio, but now prefers to lurk in the shadows as Overlord. She is an incarnation of the Buddha from the destroyed planet of Ossir in the Sirius system, and is about 967 Earth-years old now. From her cave in the hills at the southernmost tip of Sicily, on the African continental plate, she creates and releases music as The Lowest of Low. She also writes symphonic music for orchestra, but nobody knows about that… oh. Oops.
She makes little films, paints, and designs oddball clothing. Since last year, she’s obsessed with making animation, and is single-handedly creating a 36-episode series called VOID under the auspices of her animation company, Zero Budget Animation (part of the Studio Montagna family of …. whatever you want to call ’em.)
A former chef, she enjoys cooking nice things for her partner and their two dogs, Shiro and Minori. Before all this, she worked as a translator and ghost-writer in a variety of languages. Before that, she was a swimming teacher and upland self-sufficiency farmer (loud laughter) in the dead centre of the North York Moors National Park in the UK. She makes a mean cheese and knows how to create a panoply of dishes from pretty much just potatoes. She’s also a skilled herbalist.
A long, long time ago in the US, she was a writer, professional chef and award-winning sculptor. She can’t drive a car and has always relied on her feet, a bicycle, or the kindness of strangers in dodgy vehicles for transportation. She has a deep interest in human religion and mythology, psychology, history, literature, techy geeky stuff and gadgets. She has over 4,000 books in her cave, most of which she’s already read at least once. To relax, she swims, practices martial arts, and watches a LOT of anime.
Brainwaves Mondays 7pm – 9pm
Brian has wanted to be a DJ ever since he was 7-years-old growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area and his parents bought him a cassette tape recorder. He began talking over the songs he heard on the radio in his best 1970s Top 40 Boss Jock voice. It wasn’t until college in 1980 that his dream was realized and Brainwaves was born, then as a New Wave program. Brainwaves took a hiatus until 2011 while Brian built a career first as a high-tech entrepreneur and as a freelance journalist and editor. Brian lives with his wife and three children in Jerusalem.
Brainwaves is eclectic alternative radio – two hours of great music every week spanning five decades of rock and roll. You’ll hear everything from the pop 70s all the way to the latest melodic indie, with a healthy dose of punk, progressive, new wave, dream pop, synth pop, slowcore, country folk, electronica, art rock and grunge thrown into the mix. And since Brainwaves broadcasts from Jerusalem, you’ll hear some cool Israeli rock as well.

Just Some Punk Songs Tuesdays 7pm – 8pm
Mick Fletcher has been a fan of punk music ever since discovering the new, exciting genre whilst at school, back in 1977.
He’d always loved making mixtapes for friends but noticed a decreasing number of them realised great punk music was still being released. It seemed everyone thought punk had gone away decades ago. One Christmas, mainly out of boredom, he started the Just Some Punk Songs blog (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/) thinking it would last the length of the holiday season and go unnoticed. Initially, it pretty much did go unnoticed but, adding a different song every day or so, he persisted and people started visiting.
Just Some Punk Songs concentrates on new music and, hopefully, gets bands a bit of much needed exposure.
Based in Chorley, England, Mick has been broadcasting now for a few years and is more than happy to be playing his modern day mixtapes to a worldwide audience. If you like what you hear on the shows, says Mick, please check out the bands.
Voodoo Radio is pleased to add Mick Fletcher to its roster of presenters.
The God of Thunder
The God of Thunder
When we asked The God of Thunder if he would like to write a small biog for his webpage, he replied, ”
No!” You get the idea. He is not the friendliest of souls (nor do we know, for sure, that he has a soul) and
his personal odour is distinctive and long-lasting, but he does know his music.
His knowledge of Rock, Metal, and Blues has been described as encyclopedic and his choice of tracks is
always interesting. What astounded us is how much he also knows about R’n’B, Soul, Northern Soul, Funk,
Punk, Jazz, Zamrock and, even, Disco! Let’s not get into his penchant for really weird stuff from as far
back as the 1920s. If you can get past the inherent goatiness of it all and you don’t scare easily, he might
just surprise you. Oh, and his opinions are all his own. We’d tell him, but we’re scared of him.

The Dog Particle with The God of Thunder
The Dog Particle with The God of Thunder is a perfect way to get you through the day or, night. Although
known as an authority on rock music, the goaty one likes to mix it up. Between 1 and 4pm UK on a
Saturday, he could play absolutely anything, depending on how he feels. It could be all Rock or, it could
be all Northern Soul, Motown, or Stax. Maybe, he’ll delve into the Blues, Jazz or, indeed, if he’s feeling that
way out, he might even give you one of his renowned Rattlesnake Shows, where anything and everything
Being The God of Thunder, he likes to air his views on current events and share his wisdom on all matters.
He has even been known to play a request or two, but only if he approves of your choice. One thing is for
sure, it’s never dull when he is on air and his style is as unique as his goatskin leggings!
I arrived in Manchester in 1989 with a pocketful of dreams; one was to introduce the city to Industrial / EBM music as few seemed to know about it!
I came up with the title Rubberclad Battlefied! It seemed appropriate because I had read about nights like Torture Garden and I could see how fitting it would be alongside the militaristic / post apocalyptic image of EBM.
I started out in pubs; The Eagle Hulme, the Boatman’s home, Castlefield, a few illegal flat parties in the notorious Hulme Crescents and then I decided to record a live mix to showcase the largely unknown bands like Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb and Front 242.
The tapes with all my own artwork were distributed and well received.
A chance meeting landed me the upstairs room at the Banshee club for Exit 80’s, this was a turning point for the scene. Up until then I was seen as ‘That quiet lad who dressed like a soldier and listened to that Violent music’ but once Nine Inch Nails appeared, things would never be the same. As a result, some of the small crowd attending would go on to do great things like Underworld and Infest – which I have played at twice now with humbling reviews.
I came away from the scene due to a long term relationship but soon returned to find it all a bit different. Using my past experience I landed guest slots at Sin City, Analogue Trash, Club Lash and in time would co-create Black Planet – a regular night at Legends.
But – like most great venues in Manchester, resale and demolition removed them from the map.
Undeterred, I have tried to keep my hand in to get slots at similar nights and the odd side project like Witch House and Experimental.
I now have a residency at Ara; a Goth / Industrial / Alt. 80.s night in a church where I continue to entertain with material from the early pioneering days of the Industrial / EBM genre to more current bands.
My most recent residency is Delete Yourself; it’s primarily Dark Techno and Hard Dance but my Darker Industrial / Early EBM fits right in.
My day job is installing and repairing sound systems, DJ equipment and lighting.
I have collated and condensed information on my career as a DJ from the start in 1989 to the current day.

I’m Cat Man! Known as Cat Man cos I love cats! 🤟😹🤟I also have a huge passion for music. I’m also the director of Steel Paws Festival! Whilst I do have a wide taste in music Rock is my favourite.. But Lemmy once said it best…”There are only two types of music…Music you don’t like & music you DO like”.. He was right too!Anyway Cat Man’s Rocks will focus mostly on the bands this side of the millennium… We’ll not be regurgitating old stuff. We’re all about giving exposure to the newer bands and their music. There is SO MUCH tallent out there being ignored by the mainstream media.. This is what I love the most about Voodoo Radio Online… They dare to be alternative.. So I’d say we’re gonna get along just fine.
I grew up listening to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones as a child and adored music with a passion. It was no surprise that i entered the mad world of being a DJ at the age of 19, surrounding myself with the disco and funk, glam and punk of the seventies, as the eighties and nineties became a blur of electronic drumbeats and sampling – however i never forgot my true love of all things Rock. Fast forward to around 2010 and i moved into rock nights in Newcastle upon Tyne with the Percy Arms Rock Nights and the monthly Mini Mayfair Classic Rock Nights. By 2016 i joined up with Nova Radio North East as a complete novice but eager to learn and listen as i covered various shows from doing Breakfast Shows to DriveTime and it was here that the concept of The RockBox Radio Show began playing rock and metal for 2hrs every Tuesday and ran for around 215 shows. My outlook was if it made just one listener go out and check the album / band then it was all worthwhile. Today that message still stands with RockBox.
Veteran radio presenter of over 30 years, Emma Scott has today revealed details of her new globally syndicated radio show.
The Pluggin Baby Radio Show is being offered as a 2-hour weekly programme to stations all over the world and features the most exciting independent talent from her radio plugging business, Pluggin Baby, which she has been running since 2013.
The show, which will be pre-recorded in her own Cambridgeshire home studio will also play established bands who have fired up Emma’s musical passion since she started her radio career back in 1988.
Acoustic sets and interviews with familiar artists and classic tracks, as well as introductions to fresh new bands should keep ears and the imagination fired up with its weekly offering. The show is currently rattling in the blocks with already over 30 stations worldwide embracing the excitement of hosting its celebration. “The more the merrier” says Emma with a broad mischievous grin.
As Emma shines the spotlight on her favourite artists and encounters from over the years; exhilarating new sounds will lie seamlessly side by side with the likes of “Shinedown, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Paramore, Stereophonics, Jimmy Eat World, Placebo, and of course Muse!”, the latter a band openly beloved by the lady herself.
“So good, I named my company after one of their songs!” she declared.
THE PLUGGIN’ BABY RADIO SHOW is already whipping up excitement in the same way Emma has over the years with the likes of Kerrang! Radio, Metro FM, Hallam FM, Power FM, Chiltern Radio, Heart, Galaxy, Juice and many more.
In the words of Emma, “Having worked in the music industry for over 30 years, I have radio in my blood” and as the show will epitomise and the music industry can attest to over the past couple of decades or so, the supporting and promoting of new bands and great sounds lies deep in her heart, it all brought forth once more with the fun and passion only rock ‘n’ roll can inspire.
A fresh exciting breath in every sense, the Pluggin Baby Radio launches worldwide, from September 1st.
For stations that wish to host the show, please contact email@example.com

Paul has been in the music business for over 30 years playing in punk bands in the early 90’s ‘Psycho Sexual Sex Terrestrials’ & ‘GMX Stuns’ Both bands endured limited success releasing vinyl singles that led to national radio & TV airplay. Gmx Stuns also worked with the legendary Malcom Mclaren and also US Producer Kim Fowley. Paul has also worked as a major gig promotor, manager, mentor, Club & Radio DJ, Producer & Remixer, He has worked with the likes of Rusty Egan (Visage & Blitz), Mike Peters (The Alarm) Martin Degville (Sigue Sigue Sputnik) as well as producing many unofficial mixes for The Skids, The Damned, Buzzcocks, Spizzenergi, Ramones, Apoptygma Berzerk & many more.

Punk AF also doubles up as a mental health support group where members join the live feed chat for support whilst listening to great music.

On the Beastie Rock Show, it’s all about insults, fun, music and insults. Did I mention the insults?
It takes a certain type of chuffer to listen to my show, and the insults can fly thick and fast both ways – but in between all of that will be some great music. There’s always going to be a heavy sprinkling of old-school (‘60s and ‘70s) rock as that’s the era I grew up in, my formative years so to speak. As much as I love tripping down memory lane, it’s new music, brand new rock, that gets the Beastie juices flowing. I apologise for using the word ‘juices’ but as regular listeners know, I don’t often have control over what I say and do, though I must admit that yes I truly do speak fluent gibberish.
it’s new music, current bands, working hard to record and perform their own version of rock, that carries the heartbeat of all those legendary bands I grew up with, that is what really excites me these days. Imagine all the music you have in your memory being rivalled by new bands, making it all sound as fresh as you like, what’s not to love about that? What’s not to get excited about? Music should stir the soul, it should get you excited and if it doesn’t … then yes, I truly and honestly do feel sad for you.
It’s not just about the music on Beastie’s Rock Show though, as I mentioned, there’s plenty of fun, and to that end I usually have a quiz on the show which makes people moan…a LOT…which I must admit, I like – and it’s designed that way. It’s never too difficult, but if I can take liberties with it, and rest assured – I will. A lot of listeners like to insult me during the quiz, and I can’t complain really, it’s all fully deserved, and I get what I ask for.
When it comes to the blues, things are a little different…
My first love has always been rock but right from the start it was the blues-tinged rock that grabbed every little piece of heart. Led Zep, Free, The Rolling Stones and the older I get the more in touch with the blues I become and the deeper involved I get in it.
I’m not what I would call a technical presenter. I don’t like long lists of stats and info – and who did what, when and who with. Music to me has always been about heart and soul and moving me, physically and emotionally. When I’m on-air people know instantly whether I like something, or I LOVE something. I’m often unable to speak immediately after a song because it’s grabbed hold of me so much. More often than not, a song I’ve played many, many times too but in that moment, even on air, I am lost, totally gone.
That sums me up and especially my relationship with music. Blues (and soul) hold that power over me more than any other form of music. One minute I have a huge smile on my face playing some 60s Rhythm and Blues, dancing around my studio, the next my heart is wrung out from a powerful vocal, a searing guitar lick or stunning piece of gob iron. I’m usually an emotional wreck by the end of a show…but I keep coming back for more.
Come and have a listen…bring ya moaning boots and ya flak jacket for a great afternoon.

Born in Manchester in March 1987, I am a proud mum of one with a chihuahua and an eclectic taste in music. I work seasonally as an administrator for the NHS and enjoy being part of a team. I was brought up around a strong love of classic rock artists including Meatloaf, Guns ‘n’ Roses, and Bon Jovi and I quickly developed a love of rock and metal.
This passion followed me into my late teens when I discovered the infamous ‘Jilly’s Rock World’ in Manchester – A rock club where I found some of the best friends, that are still a major part of my life today. I’m pretty outgoing and love new challenges and making new friends – so I’m really excited about this adventure with Voodoo.
I would like say a special thanks to Chris aka The Rock ‘n’ Roll Preacher for giving me this opportunity to work with the amazing people here at Voodoo Radio, and I am looking forward to my future in music.
