On the Wire on the BBC

 Good news is that On the Wire is back on the BBC. Bad news is that we are only on air four times in 2021. You’ll find us on Bank Holidays .....
 

We have not received any statement from the BBC to explain why this a good idea, so here’s a recent quote from the acting manager at BBC Radio Lancashire:
 

“BBC local radio has moved to a simplified schedule. With our new format we’re not able to have a weekly programme. The idea of the quarterly show was to keep the bond with the programme so that if the situation changed in the future we would still have contact.”
 

So, we are hoping and aiming to be back in our weekly slot in 2022. In the meantime we will continue on Mixcloud at www.mixcloud.com/otwradio

 The great Bunny Wailer passed last week, the last of the Wailing Wailers, the greatest reggae group of all time, he was 73 years old. Over the years Jah Bunny resolutely held strict control of his catalogue via his label Solomonic and only recorded sporadically over the last 20/30 years, but from his startling debut album “Blackheart Man” in 1976 and over the following two decades his output was of the highest quality peaking with the wonderful “Rock & Groove” set in 1981, plus a host of top 7” and 12” single releases in Jamaica. In 2010 On the Wire paid tribute to Jah Bunny with two shows assembled by the show’s great friend Noel Hawks. Here they are again as we remember the great man. Jah Bless Bunny Wailer R.I.P.
