Our next radio show will be on 1st May, 2012. The first day of May is significant for many reasons. For some it is seen as International Workers Day (Mayday) and for others it is the Celtic festival of Beltane. We will be commemorating both on this weeks show.
We will feature several numbers appropriate to International Workers Day, with unions, people power and general anti-establishmentism getting a plug; including brand new tunes from Inner Terrestrials, Anti-flag and Dreadzone
