shows // The Saturday Shakedown

rocknroll // garagerock // gospel // punk // blues

Ben and Matt's Saturday Shakedown (Est.2002.) Live every Saturday 4-5pm (GMT).

Flat-cap hillbilly country bues-punk, rock and roll and swinging gospel from the muddy shores of the Mississippi Delta to the delicate banks of the Clyde Estuary

"Rock and Roll is the voice of the young, the pulse of the kids who are with it, the kids who are no longer satisfied to look at the stars, but who are devising ways and means of reaching them... and to do that means trimming superfluous edges from every facet of life, including music."

On today's show - new faves from Memphis punks Nots, DC's Ex Hex, San Diego's Mrs Magician, Glasgow's Primevals and a lot of old blues, gospel, rock and roll and country music as standard.
