MAD WASP RADIO

Welcome to Mad Wasp Radio, a brand new Internet Radio Station that aims to provide YOU with a unique music and entertainment experience – with the main focus on new music, forgotten gems and quirky comedy talent from Britain and beyond and FUN! Our musical focus is an alternative to the mainstream – but still covering a host of genres from punk to soul and from rock to house and pretty much everything in between – and with plenty of recognisable songs from past decades. As well as catering for your aural pleasure, we also want to make you smile and will be introducing a healthy smattering of comedy and laughter to the proceedings.

SEND US YOUR MUSIC!

One of our key objectives is to give as much exposure as possible to new musical and comedy talent. Please send all music and sketches - mp3 tracks preferred - to studio@madwaspradio.com and we'll give it a listen and circulate to our DJs for AirPlay!

Broadcasting 24/7

We want you to be able to listen to the music that YOU like, so please let us know what you want to listen to and what you like about Mad Wasp Radio… and even what you don't like! We will listen.

EXCITING NEWS - LOOK WHO IS JOING US! MAD WASP RADIO WELCOMES THE CLOCKWORK CABARET!



We are absolutely delighted to announce that "That Darling DJ Duo", Emmett Davenport and Lady Attercop, will be joining us at Mad Wasp Radio from midday GMT Sunday 28th February - repeated Thursday at midnight!

They are one part frustrated Vaudevillians searching for a stage, and one part 80s era rockers with too much hairspray and not enough adult supervision, they spin an eclectic mix of everything from torch songs, swing, indie, electronic, punk, funk, 80s new wave, neo-vintage, and neo-folk to good old fashioned favorites. They will get your rump thumping and your blood pumping.

They will bring a weekly show hosted by your favourite weird aunties and professional ladies. Sure, they’re old enough to know better, but they’ve never let that stop them before. They’ve got a wide assortment of music, vintage cocktails, weird history, geekery, horrible accents, and fake holidays they’d like to share. Remember, at the Clockwork Cabaret, it’s not work they do, it’s LOVE!


TRACK HIGHLIGHT - AMERICANA GMT SHOW - Rodney Crowell - Forgive Me Annabelle




We will be highlighting certain tracks from time to time to give you a sense of what to expect on some of our shows. This week we are featuring a track from Rodney Crowell's album "Close Ties" which can be heard on Jonny Steingold's Americana GMT Show. You can catch the Americana GMT 4pm Saturday - replays at 7pm on Monday and Noon on Friday.

Feel free to contact us if you hear a particular track that you would like featured and let us know which show you heard it on.


FEBRUARY TRACK OF THE MONTH! - LOOKING THROUGH THE MAGIC WINDOW
IT SIMPLY HAS TO GO TO ALL OF THESE AMAZING TRACKS!




We usually only pick 1 but this month has to be an exception! 38 choice cuts of magical electronica from some of the most exciting talents on the scene and you can order your copy from this link at Music is The Devil's Bandcamp Page - Looking Through The Magic Window

The tracks represent what is played on The Magic Window radio show that airs on Mad Wasp Radio madwaspradio.com and is presented by Letters From Mouse

The artists were all invited to contribute to the album which is being released in partnership with Music Is The Devil who are great friends to the show.

Mad Wasp Radio is an independent radio station with a wide range of shows for every musical taste. The station do not play adverts so rely on listener donations to operate. Operating a radio station that is full licensed is an expensive business so all money from sales of this album will go directly to the station. This is a thank you for giving independent artists and labels a platform to reach more listeners.

A huge thank you to the artists for getting involved and producing some amazing music, this is a stunning collection which we hope people will enjoy.

Thank you to James and the Music Is The Devil crew for partnering on this project, their support of the show and the station and for being a super cool label.

THANKS DOHNAVUR, WERRA FOXMA RECORDS & LETTERS FROM MOUSE!



We were absolutely delighted to receive a wonderful donation from @dohnavur on Twitter from the Concrete Animals 7" fundraiser for Mad Wasp Radio.

Thank you to Dohnavur, Werra Foxma Records and to everyone who bought a copy of Concrete Animals. We love you all!

Werra Foxma Records have plans for several more vinyl releases this year so go and follow them on Twitter @werrafoxma and check out their bandcamp page Werra Foxma Records Bandcamp where you will find some amazing music including Concrete Animals and many other great bands you will hear on Mad Wasp Radio's The Magic Window hosted by Letters from Mouse.


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - NEW MUSIC SUBMISSIONS


For bands, promoters and agents sending in new music - please note that we would appreciate that you send us a short bio along with a track(s) (mp3 format preferred). We have started to receive a lot of emails asking that we listen to a Spotify link and get back to you if we think that your track is suitable for our station. We don't do Spotify and we simply do not have the resource to be able to reply to everyone but we guarantee that any track and info that gets sent to us will immediately be forwarded to the relevant DJs.

We cover every type of music so you don't need to ask us if the track is suitable for Mad Wasp Radio and we do not shy away from rude words in the content!

Thank you for your co-operation and keep that great music coming in to us!


DIFFERENT WAYS TO LISTEN TO MAD WASP RADIO


There are a host of different ways you can listen to all your favourite shows on Mad Wasp Radio.

You can simply click the Listen button at the top of this page; we have Apps for both Apple and Android platforms (see details below) and you can also connect through all the leading streaming services.


DOWNLOAD THE MAD WASP RADIO IOS APP!

Then, Mad Wasp Radio will be just a finger touch away for you all! ​Oh, and finally, we'd like to thank Apple for their politeness and efficiency – a direct contrast to the treatment we have received from their counterparts at Google Play!


DOWNLOAD THE MAD WASP RADIO ANDROID APP!


Unfortunately, due to reasons completely beyond our control, the Google Play Store is refusing to stock the Mad Wasp Radio Android App – apparently because we are attempting to impersonate ourselves! But do not fear – you can download our App from the link below! However, before you download, you will need to adjust the settings on your smartphone or tablet because most are configured to only accept Apps from Google Play.

• If your smartphone or tablet is running Android 4.0 or higher, go to Settings, scroll down to Security, and select Unknown sources.

• On devices running an earlier version of Android, go to Settings, open the Applications option, select Unknown sources, and click OK on the popup alert.

Now you can download the App from our secure site below. The Android App link is here. DOWNLOAD THE MAD WASP RADIO ANDROID APP!

Happy listening!
