199 Radio is a new station based at the amazing New River Studios.
This is what they say about it:
On next week's show I will be joined by Chris Reeder from the fantastic Rocket Recordings. An amazing label that has been on an incredible run of form recently, having put out records from the likes of Goat, Gnod, Hey Colossus, Josefin Öhrn, GNOOMES, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and loads of other excellent artists.
Not only that, but they're putting out the brilliant Housewives record that we talked about on last week's show. So join us 6-8pm next Tuesday 22 August on 199radio. In the meantime, acquaint yourself over on Bandcamp: https://rocketrecordings.bandcamp.com/
