Mike Joyce unleashes internet radio station, the sweetest sounds on the web
Mike Joyce, ex-drummer for alt rock icons The Smiths, is taking his on-air expertise to new British online radio station, Beatwolf Radio. Along with his globe-trotting DJing career, Joyce has spent the last seven years working in radio broadcasting, with two solid years at eclectic online radio hotspot East Village Radio, and regular gigs a BBC's Radio 6 Music.
Joyce headlines two shows on the Manchester-based Beatwolf Radio -- "The Record Store Chart," which details indie label sales from all over the country, and "Alternative Therapy," Joyce's feature of his favorite bands performing sessions or doing interviews.
In regards to running the free-for-all format of the station, Joyce says, "Everybody has got two-hour slots. There are no playlists, and its genre-less. They choose their own material, which includes interviews, features, reviews and sessions. Judging by the feedback we've had it's what people have been wanting for some time."
Alongside Joyce, Beatwolf Radio includes shows from a variety of DJs and announcers, including Phil Beckett, Jo Good, and Vic McGlynn, and has featured artists such as Alt-J, Jake Mattison, and Zulu Winter. "Alternative Therapy" broadcasts every Monday from 3pm to 5pm, while "The Record Store Chart" airs Sundays between 4pm and 6pm. Check out Beatwolf's website for show listings and more info.
