Remember those often freaky sounds from the 60′s, or the more mellow rock from the 70′s? Well you can hear all sorts of rock music from those two decades every Saturday night starting at 21.00 GMT. We feature music from groups such as Pink Floyd, Nazareth, Love, Steve Miller Band, Roxy Music and ELO.
Whilst we appreciate that many people love XeRW because we play great music, we also know that in today’s busy and unsettled times being up-to-date with what is happening in the world is very important. Therefore we have introduced a regular 5 minute news bulletin supplied by VOA. The bulletins cover major stories throughout the world and are updated regularly. We hope that you find the service useful, and we would appreciate your views on it.
Our New Year’s Eve 70′s Party programme went down so well with our listeners that we have now decided to make it a regular feature. So tune in at 20.00 GMT/UTC every Saturday night for four bouncing hours of disco party music.
Music from The Bee Gees, Gloria Gaynor, Rubettes, Barry White, Detroit Emeralds, Slade, The Tramps, Van McCoy and many many more. Dig out the big shoes, the big trousers, the tank tops, the glitter, the big belts, and guys if you still have the hair, how about a nice big Afro hairstyle?
So Now Is The Time to Get Up And Boogie at the Disco Inferno, get Reunited with your old mates and Dance Dance Dance!
XeRW wishes all our listeners a wonderful New Year! Thanks for your support and listenership in 2011, it’s been great to know that you are listening all over the world. Let’s hope for peace, stability and a better life for all in 2012.
XeRW wishes all of our fantastic listeners a wonderful time over the festive period, and we hope you will continue to enjoy the music we play in 2012.
It’s been great to see whereabouts in the world we have listeners, and equally great to know that no matter where we live, we all love the music from the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s!
Love, Peace and Happiness to you all!
We’re always looking at new ways of allowing listeners to hear the great music we play on XeRW. And we’re pleased to announce that smartphone users who have iPhones or Android system phones can download a totally free app which will allow you to listen to XeRW easily. Full details and downloads are available here.
XeRW has been broadcasting the excellent Takin Ya’ Back and Songwriter’s Search programmes presented by Kurt David for some time now. However technical difficulties have disrupted recent programmes, so we have reluctantly decided to rest Takin’ Ya Back for a short time whilst a solution is found to these problems. Songwriter’s Search will continue to be broadcast, and we are working hard on a permanent solution and hope to soon be airing Kurt’s TYB programmes again. Please accept our apologies for this break in your listening pleasure, and we will miss Kurt as well, and can’t wait to get him back reliably!
Starting at 22.00 GMT/UTC on Thursday 17 November we have an hour of non-stop Northern Soul records with the emphasis on them being proper stompers. And of course we will finish the sequence with the classic ‘Three before Eight’ as played at Wigan Casino All-nighters.
Let us know what you think, and let us know what biggies you want playing next time, and dig out the Spencers!
As it’s Halloween XeRW is devoting an hour tonight to Spooky music. Ghosts, Wolfmen, Devils, Witches, we got the lot. Just tune in at 21.00 GMT and prepared to be scared!
