Guy B - The Friday Rockshow

Guy produces and presents the station’s rockshow on Fridays 5-8pm. A break from generic and perhaps predictable radio-friendly rock, Guy champions new bands and also revisits great, established bands that are less frequently heard on radio.

Storytelling is Guy’s passion. He runs his own Great Music Stories news platform that specialises in feature interviews with emerging bands. Much of this content Guy also airs on his show with us which makes for a really engaging listener experience.
The rock show has gained critical acclaim, and for the last two successive years Guy has been shortlisted as Best Music Producer at the National Radio Production Awards in London against national media competition. No mean feat for a rockshow that is run by volunteers, has zero marketing budget - but a bucket load of passion and fresh ideas.

In the last year Guy has aired more than 150 feature interviews on many of the brightest emerging and biggest estabished bands in rock - and on the back of a good standing with bands, the show has given the UK radio priemere to more than 50 new releases. The show’s listenership spans the UK and draws listeners from Canada, the US, France and further afield! Guy IS aiming to change the rock world for new bands - one person at a time and it’s working. The December vote for the rock show’s band of the year drew more than 10,000 votes.

Listeners frequently comment they think the Friday rockshow is one of the best on radio. Guy is usually too busy planning the next interview to think about much else - but if you want a rockshow with music that pushes boundaries coupled with in-depth weekly band interviews - tune in next Friday and give it a go!!
