TWANG Radio on CandoFM
Twang Radio on CandoFM
DJ’s ANDY GRAHAM AND MAL LINGARD
Andy Graham and Mal Lingard launched the showcase evenings to bring highly-regarded out-of-town acts to Barrow and unearth some hidden gems, consistently packing out the Duke Street venue.
The radio incarnation of Twang! launches on CandoFM on Thursday November 3, at 7pm, and will continue in a similar vein to the live shows, covering all bases with a strong focus on up-and-coming indie artists.
Andy says: “We’ve never done anything like this before, but we’re just looking to incorporate the ethos that we put into our night into a regular radio show.
“Showcasing new music that we both like, and discussing recent music news and other points of particular interest – we’ll just give it a go and see what happens.
“Bands from away, that people may or may not have heard, have come in and taken a chance and enjoyed it, and it’s nice to see that other people in the town enjoy live alternative music as much as we do really.”
The hope is that the live events will be recorded to be played out on the radio, and that local performers will head into the Cando FM studio at Furness College to record sessions for Twang! radio.
