Launchpad is Spark's brand new music show, and kicks off you week of evening music programming on Spark so it's a great way to get stuck in to what we have to offer. Each week I will play you a COMPLETELY NEW set of tracks, that will change each time you listen - nothing ever gets repeated, so you never know what it will sound like next. Whether you are looking for tracks that are chilled out, hype you up for the week ahead, or if you are a lover of all music no matter the genre, each Monday I will bring you something that you will love and will be adding to your weekly playlists. I will bring you hand selected tracks that are brand new and super fresh on the radio. These are from artists that you already know and love, but you also have the opportunity to discover brand new up and coming artists as well, and I will provide you with all the facts and info you need to know when it comes to these artists. Alongside that, I will also bring you interviews from them, so they can tell you in their own words why you should listen to and watch them. So if you love brand new music, brand new genres and getting all the music knowledge you could wish for, Launchpad will bring you everything you need to set you up for the week ahead.Learn more

Each week we bring you the best new tracks from brand new artists who you might not have heard from yet and Indie belters that fill the club floors.

Each week on the show, we showcase the best in brand new music. From everything such as the big names to the little unscouted and local artists. We also bring you the latest news, tours and interviews from artists who have been hitting up the north east. Also occasionally throwing the odd album listening party where sit back and listen to a brand new or classic record together. Each week from 8:30 we dive into the rollercoaster playlist; a collection takes you nice and high and then drops you all the back low to mellow you out.Learn more
THE TAKEDOWN is Spark’s premier rock show, celebrating 10 years of playing the finest raw rock sounds. With Sunderland’s own James Anderson aka ‘Jimmy Ando’ at the helm, our aim is true: celebrate all thing good n’ heavy the pantheon of rock n’ roll music. Simply put, we ain’t discriminating! Join us, on your weekly Thursday night trip for a two-hour journey through the mono-fuzz overtones of 60’s garage and the virtuosic meanderings of 70’s psychedelia; to the aural assault of 80’s hardcore and the verbal bite of 90’s Riot Grrrl punk: before arriving at finest sonic offerings of the digital age! The final hour of every show, The Takedown Underground, showcases the latest and greatest in the local rock pantheon, featuring new releases from bands across the North-East. Whilst we maintain the ethos of ‘music first, chat later’, we also chat with local and international artists playing in the rock area, and talk upcoming gigs and new musical releases from established sonic progenitors and fledgling punk upstarts, alike. So, whether you’re a rookie member of the rock n’ roll coterie, or a hardened aficionado rendered in the esoteric fires of Mount 6 music (with the Peel sessions knowledge to match), then come get involved, Thursday 7 till 10: TURN ON, TUNE IN, AND DROP OUT!Learn more
