featured episode

This week on Rock Island Line sees the beginning of the munch anticipated culinary event of the year - Eat To The Beat. Our quest to find the king-size champion begins with three qualifying matches, the first of which sees current VP Comms Zoe 'Killergrams' take on failed VP Comms candidate Alan 'The Food Mountain' Gardner. Alan goes into the fight with an unbeaten record in the competition and a diet-fuelled lust for chocolate raisins, whilst the rookie Killergrams has opted for a high-density food in baguettes in an attempt to throw the veteran off his massive stride. Who will make it through to fight for the title at The Last Supper? We'll also be playing Jesus Says No, alongside music from The Brother Louis Collective, The Big Eyes Family Players, JJ Cale and Rilo Kiley.

This week sees the beginning of the munch anticipated culinary event of the year - Eat To The Beat. Our quest to find the king-size champion begins with three qualifying matches, the first of which sees current VP Comms Zoe 'Killergrams' take on failed VP Comms candidate Alan 'The Food Mountain' Gardner. Alan goes into the fight with an unbeaten record in the competition and a diet-fuelled lust for chocolate raisins, whilst the rookie Killergrams has opted for a high-density food in baguettes in an attempt to throw the veteran off his massive stride. Who will make it through to fight for the title at The Last Supper?
