Bridges 27 Air date : 25th March 2023 @ 1900 hours



Tonight's programme is a repeat of the first part of our two part Ultravox Special, originally broadcast in March 2022. Sadly, I am unable to produce a new programme tonight because, once again, I am recovering from yet another chest infection. That's the second in less than eight weeks.

I just wish that some selfish individuals would use their God-given intellect to figure out that going to a place that has proven to be a source of chest infections in the past will likely result in exactly the same outcome the next time they visit, and that the consequences of such repeated infections, especially in folks who are not healthy to begin with, are very, very real.

Anyway, end of rant.

Enjoy the show.

Submission Guidelines (updated 06-Jan-22)

Here are a rough set of guidelines for submitting tracks to Bridges

1. First and foremost, we aim to be a family-friendly show. We don’t play tracks which are linked to strong sexual content. End of. If your track features an explicit video then we won’t play your track. This is non-negotiable. Why? Because our audience includes children and young adults, and kids these days are highly proficient at using web tools. They can find age-restricted videos with comparative ease so if your track features a lot of sex, nudity and general smut then, sorry. We won’t touch it. Mild sex is okay. Profanity is okay, within reason. Ask yourself this. Would you be happy showing your video to my Aunty Pat from Shiney Row? If you think Aunty Pat would disapprove then please find another track. Remember, your Aunty Pat is not the same as my Aunty Pat. My Aunty Pat swears like a Hendon Docker and has more tattoos on her bosom than entire The North of England Chapter of the Hell’s Angels but she is easily offended. So tread carefully.

2. Don’t send us files. If you send me a 100Mb AIFF file of your latest hit then I’ll blacklist you and you won’t ever hear from us again. Send us a link to your file on Youtube or Soundcloud or a code for Bandcamp instead. Please do not send us Spotify links. Spotify is part of the problem if not the whole problem.

3. We don’t play tracks by certain artists. It's a long story and it's probably best not to ask... except to say that they know who they are and why they're blacklisted. It's probably not you so don't fret.

4. The programme concentrates on a mix of Dark Electro, Machine Rock and Alternative. Basically, we play what we like and what we enjoy, as well as artists who, we feel, deserve to be heard by a wider audience. In particular, we’re interested in those artists who are having a really hard time getting noticed. Guess what? We were in the same boat when we started out. Got a hard-luck story? Tell us all about it.

The Music we play

So long as the piece is fundamentally electronic, your musical style is unimportant - content and context is paramount.

Length - we will, on occasion, play longer tracks. However, the majority of the pieces we play are between three and six minutes in duration. If your track takes fifty minutes of long slow aimless meandering before getting to a vague and nebulous conclusion then sorry, Bridges is not for you.

We won’t play noise tracks. If your track is just five minutes of car alarms going off or an hour of filter-swept noodling then this programme is not for you.

We do play ambient, usually as part of our Sleepy-time thread. We can’t guarantee that you’ll have an audience though. Most of our listeners will use Sleepy-time as an opportunity to visit the loo, put the kettle on, get a beer from the fridge or put the cat out. It’s your nickel.

We don’t play drones. Our aim is to keep the listener entertained and engaged, and to provide the backdrop to their Saturday night in. We do not want our listeners to switch to another station. Careful, detailed precise scientific analysis has clearly demonstrated that nearly every scientient living being in the Universe would rather gnaw its own foot off than listen to another artfully crafted three hour drone track. So, no... Don’t.

You Sir, are not metal.

We like our metal. We like our punk. We love our guitars. How heavy will we go? We don’t know. Try us. However, if it sounds like a Machine Gun blasting off two hundred rounds a minute with lyrics that appear to have been written by a hoard of Satan’s more playful minions then we’re unlikely to give it airtime. Fans of Norwegian Death Metal and Des O’Connor’s later works should look elsewhere.

Quality

We’re not massively bothered if you gift wrap your latest release in a roll of newspaper that’s been at the bottom of the cat’s litter tray for a month or if you stick it in a Jiffy bag with around a dozen or so nice, crisp ten pound notes. Art is subjective and we’re not critics. However, we do insist that you pay attention to the quality and format of your recording.

We must be able to read your files. It's not important if your track has been artfully rendered in glorious 24-bit, 96kHz pro audio or just hacked together with bits of old cassette tape. What matters is that we can import it easily into our audio system (Logic X running on Apple Mac). Our shows are rendered and exported as 320 kps MP3 files so the source is not hugely important. WAV, AIFF or MP3 files are ideal. We can deal with other formats if we have to but we’d rather not. If it will take two hours to import and edit your Meisterwerk into Logic then we’ll probably just replace your track with something by Rammstein or Rick Astley. Your choice really, bubs.

Recording levels is very important. If the levels are so low that they’re barely above the noise floor then we cant play it. Similarly, if your levels were recorded at such a level that the waveform is just a dense wall of black that hits 0dB 100% of the time then… No. I probably won’t even look at it. I have no desire to blow my speakers out. Or my ears.

One final word - If you do send us something then it's very, very important that you send us your best possible work. If it's not your best possible work then why are you sending it?

“Hey, Dave. We’ve been friends for thirty years. Why don’t you play my stuff?”

We play the music we like. We play the music we think our audience will like. Our aim is to build an audience that keeps coming back to the show week after week, year after year. We want to develop and support a community of musicians, a scene, in the North East of England that is second to none because we believe we have a deep, deep well of highly skilled, very talented musicians and bands in this part of the world that deserves to be heard. We’re not partisan.

We’re also happy to work hand-in-hand with other radio shows within this region to develop and enhance the scene. I’m a massive fan of the BBC’s Introducing series. Credit to them for the work they do in supporting artists.

However, just because we’re friends does not automatically mean that you’ll be pushed to the forefront of the programme and given top billing. We work strictly on merit and nothing else. That said, insincere flattery and Terry’s Chocolate Oranges sent anonymously will help.

Great, you made it this far. Still want to send us something? Even better.

Our submission form has stopped working so... Send us a message using your standard mailer by clicking here with the following details:

  • Your name

  • Your e-mail address

  • Your band name

  • Link to your track (ideally Bandcamp or Soundcloud, preferrably not Spotify)

Talk soon,
David
