Post Punk Britain Sunday – 10pm – 11pm

Simon McKay’s enthusiasm for music was clear when at the age of 15 he began publishing his own fanzine, ‘Eccentric Sleeve Notes’. He wrote about the bands he liked who came to his home town – Newcastle – between 1981 and 1984. He moved on to DJ in clubs and form the band, ‘Said Liquidator’. Thirty years later, now relocated in London, his enthusiasm for music remains: he presents a Tuesday night show on Break London at 10pm called ‘Post Punk Britain’. ‘Post Punk Britain’ plays the music Simon loves from the late 70s – the raw punk music that broke through in 1977 and the more developed sounds of post punk that followed (circa 1979 to 1982). As a counterpoint, each show includes a peppering of Jamaican and UK reggae from these eras. Simon’s interest in music is broader than ‘Post Punk Britain’ would suggest: he presents other one off shows on Break London, usually with Fenella Fielding, based around soul and gospel music. Simon is involved in various writing projects and still interviews bands, usually for publication on his website
