THE JUKEBOX DRIVE-IN
Sundays 7pm to 10pm
Robbie Owen is a former “pirate radio” Dj and a veteran of broadcasting in Northamptonshire. He started at Kettering’s KCBC in 1990.
He developed “The Jukebox Drive-In” whilst there and has since taken the programme around England.
The programme turns the musical clock back to the sixties and builds on the “British Beat” era – the classical line-up of three guitars and drums. So expect to hear lots of “Beatle-esque” tunes both old and new!
The first hour includes “record Collector’s Corner” which looks at reissues on CD, collectable vinyl, and gigs in the area. There’s a competition, and in the next hour “This Day in Music” celebrates musical anniversaries on today’s date, followed by Extended Play (a remix or an “epic” song!). Then the “Life of a Song” examines the origins and recordings of some of our most
enduring popular songs.
In the final hour it may be non-stop oldies, an interview, a special feature, or “Jukebox Knitting” where YOU choose all the songs.
The programme comes from Robbie’s own studio, called the “Magic Echo” and is surrounded by records, both CD and vinyl…and yes, the Magic Echo has a pair of turntables!
