My old school friend Andy Chalk started the Punkarolla radio show on Wycombe Sound in November 2016 – and I was privileged and honoured to be invited as a guest on the very first show.
The show plays ‘Punk Rock’, old and new and has also been another means to celebrate the live music history of High Wycombe. The show includes regular studio guests, phone-ins and interviews pre-recorded on Andy’s travels around watching and listening to the punk rock scene.
By January 2018, the show had continued into a fifth series – broadcasting between 9pm and 11pm on Friday evenings. Andy invited me in again for the show broadcast on Friday 12th January 2018 where the featured album was ‘Can’t Stand The Rezillos’ and other music with Wycombe connections, including Generation X, Damned, New York Dolls, Wire, Adam and The Ants, Joy Division, TRB and Basta Roc. If you get a chance, please listen in and give Andy feedback through the links below.
It is possible to listen live in the High Wycombe area via 106.6 FM, via the internet and mobile app. Shows are also available to ‘Listen Again’ for four weeks via www.wycombesound.org.uk

Shows from the earlier series are also available to listen to via MixCloud
