The Launchpad

7:00pmMonday

7:00pmMonday

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.

The Urban Show

9:00pmMonday

9:00pmMonday

The show is based around the music that is played on that day. The idea of the show is that when you listen to the music playing, it will trigger a memory or an experience that can be related to the song. These memories can range from good to bad but then the listeners can then know that they aren’t the only ones with those kinds of experiences and memories. These experiences and memories are things that most people would not openly admit to and so they can relate to them when listening to the show at the same time while feeling comfortable to keep it to themselves and in the process, a little advice is given for bad experiences or just in generally. The music that I play on the show is Urban and Hip Hop. Urban and Hip Hop could range from the olden days (the more well-known artists like Usher, Missy Elliot or Drake and Beyoncé) to the more current and modern-day songs (artists like Post Malone, Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar) and these could relate to most age groups. Just for a bit of a change and as a bit of a tradition on the show, I play Throwbacks, (artists like Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Lou Bega), at the end of each hour of the show just to relate to more listeners, from young people to the older listeners.

The Takedown

7:00pmThursday

7:00pmThursday

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!
