    Review: Lucy

    “Lucy will most definitely carry its box-office smash hit status from the US to the UK.” – ★★★★ There is a famous myth known as the “10% of Brain Myth”. The myth, which has been proved incorrect by scientists such as Albert Einstein, suggests that humans only have access to 10% of their brain capacity. In turn, it opens up for a world of imagination as to what would happen if there was a human with 100% access to their brain capacity. Lucy (directed by Luc Beeson – Taken, From Paris with Love) tells the story of such a human. Th... Read More

    Featuring X Take Over Show:Me

    We are proud to announce our revolutionary new radio show Show:Me.

    The show will connect music lovers and fans with their favourite artists from around the world as well as giving listeners the opportunity to discover new talent and interact with them.

    Each week the show will feature a talented artist or band. The producers have signed up an international bill of artists to present the show including Beth McCarthy (UK), Caleb Hyles (USA), Kenny Foster (USA), Featuring X (Ireland) and Travis Oaks (Ireland).

    The next Show: Me will broadcast on Friday 3rd October and will be hosted by Featuring X.

    Featuring X

    Featuring X have just signed a deal with Guiness Amplify - putting them on billboards. With more fame comes more fans. Its a good thing Featuring X are a part of Show :Me, allowing them to interact directly with their fans! James' Comment :"When I first met Featuring X at the tail end of last year and they blew me away. They are totally girl-power, which listeners will love, and always put their unique, cheeky spin on everything which makes them the craziest bunch of talented girls I’ve ever met! There’s no worry as to whether Featuring X will cause a party at the Station – I know they’ll bring it if it isn’t here waiting for them!”

    Beth McCarthy

    As seen on The Voice UK and with almost 133,000 views on Youtube, Beth has been spotted with Ricky from the Kaiser Chiefs. Discussing why he chose her for the show, James Gilmore (Producer) said: “Beth McCarthy has such a unique voice that I absolutely fell in love with when I first heard her perform. She’s extremely talented as well as being very chatty, cheeking and funny which makes her perfect for Show:Me. I’m extremely excited to hearing Beth kick off Show:Me in September and spread her talents with the W!ZARD Radio Station audience.”

    Caleb Hyles

    This Youtube sensation (with over 9,500,000 views under his belt!) makes his debut at Show: Me on Friday 12th September. “Caleb Hyles manages to bend his voice in all sorts of ways to make it suit an endless list of famous voices. Perhaps that’s why he’s such a good singer of musical soundtracks but it’s not the only reason he has such a big following on YouTube – he’s extremely funny and equally driven to be successful, and that’s why our listeners will truly benefit from Caleb’s presence on Show:Me.”

    Kenny Foster

    Kenny has been playlisted on many US radio stations and has a new EP out now. Combine this with his love of Country music and you've got more than enough reasons to check this guy out! Producer James Gilmore commented about his first time meeting Kenny by saying, "Kenny Foster is so caring and is willing to help almost everybody in his path. His mix of talent and loving-nature is enough of a reason to have booked him for Show:Me, but couple that with his intense knowledge of the music industry and his ‘up for anything’ attitude and you have somebody who the world deserves to know.”

    Travis Oaks

    Travis Oaks' brand new music video 'Last Love Song' is an absolute hit. Check it out here! Being a part of Show:Me will give them a monthly break from the constant gigging! Producer James Gilmore comments, "Travis Oaks are simply a group of guys who make great music, and that’s what I love most about them. They don’t put anything before their music and that’s why they are on so many radars as being the ‘next big thing’ that this industry needs. They really freshen up the rock music scene and are insanely creative and Show:Me will put our listeners in contact with this great bunch of lads who know how to have a good time.”

    Make sure you don't miss this exciting new show, exclusively on W!ZARD Radio Station.

    We Are Loud Take Over The W!ZARD Sessions

    Our new show The W!ZARD Sessions focuses on exclusive live music and guest mixes that you can only hear on W!ZARD Radio Station.

    We Are Loud is a fresh and energetic DJ collaboration between the two passionate Dutch DJ’s and producers Björn van den Biggelaar and Daniel Ortgiess.They discovered their mutual passion for EDM while studying at the Dutch Rock Academy, where they fine-tuned their sound engineering, producing and DJ skills.

    Shortly after the beginning of their careers, both producers started paving the way as individuals and always stayed close to their beloved house scene. DJ's and producers such as Showtek, Fedde Le Grand, Wolfpack and DJ Jeroenski are no strangers to their productions.

    They’ve released records on labels such as Spinnin’ Records, Smash the House, Oxygen, Musical Madness and NEWS.

    After performing at major gigs and festivals like Dance Valley, Trance Energy, Rockit Festival, and Loveland Festival they decided the time was right to combine forces and We Are Loud was born.

    LuvBug, Darla & Jess and The Bandits To Join DJ James Gilmore

    This Friday 3rd October DJ James Gilmore will be joined by the upcoming artists LuvBug, Darla & Jess and The Bandits at 6.00pm.

    Who are they?

    LuvBug is a revolutionary new dance collective, consisting of London-born DJ & producer Marvin Humes, Manchester-based producer, The White N3rd and Grammy-nominated UK producer/songwriter JKAY. 18 months ago, the trio came together at a London-based studio and started working on some tracks. One song that jumped out was a tune Marvin had worked on with producer Pantha. Marvin suggested British R&B singer Talay Riley lend his vocals to it and “Resonance” was born. It’s already setting the blogosphere alight after going Top 10 on the Hype Machine Chart and garnering a variety of remixes from the hottest talent around including MNEK

    Compared to Nirvana on account of their shredding, grunge-style guitars and intense, howling vocals, hotly-tipped Blackpool guitar trio Darlia surely deserve their own sub-category: for being the loudest new act of 2014. Two of Darlia's members – Nathan Day, the lead singer/guitarist and drummer Jack Bentham – have known each other since primary school, with bassist Dave Williams recruited when they met during a cleaning job in college. They have all been rocking out ever since!

    Jessica Clemmons burst onto the UK scene last year following her hugely successful tours with Boyzone and The Overtones. While on those tours, she met and played with The Bandits, and the chemistry between them was so undeniable that recently they decided to come together officially as Jess & The Bandits. Made up of brothers Ricci and Louis Riccardi on drums and guitar respectively, Dave Troke on bass, Steven Reid Williams on keyboards/guitar and of course Jessica Clemmons on vocals, each member of the Bandits brings with them a storied history of country creativity.

    Our coverage of the musical will be on-air on Saturday 11th October with backstage interviews, gossip and much more!


    Darlia on The MAD Show

    The NEW format MAD Show will broadcast on Sunday 5th October at 8pm. Chris France and Grace Potter team up to bring you an hour of comedy, music and interviews! This week they are joined by the up and coming band Darlia.

    Who is Darlia?

    Compared to Nirvana on account of their shredding, grunge-style guitars and intense, howling vocals, hotly-tipped Blackpool guitar trio Darlia surely deserve their own sub-category: for being the loudest new act of 2014. Two of Darlia's members – Nathan Day, the lead singer/guitarist and drummer Jack Bentham – have known each other since primary school, with bassist Dave Williams recruited when they met during a cleaning job in college. They have all been rocking out ever since!



    The last broadcast of the MAD Show is now available on Repeats.
