The Meeting Of The Peters

No... it's not Zaphod Beeblebrox, it is the long awaited meeting of the two Peters. Maybe Peter does not look too impressed with his term time substitute Definitely Peter. I can't decide which Peter is cuter (mainly because I can't tell them apart).

In more photo news, check out the latest additions in our 'Gallery' section of the blog. I have uploaded a couple of pics of 7 Day Weekend, who joined us last Saturday.

7 Day Weekend!

This Saturday we are joined by 7 Day Weekend - a Pop-Punk 5 piece from Warrington. Formed mid 2010, members Calan Nickle (Vocals), Clayton Leah (Rhythm Guitar), Tom Hancox (Lead Guitar), Dan Hancox (Bass) and John Handy (Drums) started off aiming as high as possible... And the ball hasn't stopped rolling, as they've gone from Calan's old garage to Manchester Academy 3 in just over a year. They've played along side huge talents such as Pacific, Destine, The Back Up Plan, Better Left Alone, Calais, Above The Underground, Leopards, Tall Trees and That Sunday Feeling and Attack! Attack!

Get your questions in for the band to or leave them as a comment below. Or when we are on air email the studio on or text 01270 266877.
Tune in at 11pm Saturday.

Canned Heat Shenanigans

A few weeks back Maybe Peter had the kind thought of setting up our show for us. As he is so very familiar with the Lock-In he selected the music as follows...

(If you're confused...that's two hours of nothing but Canned Heat!)

So...last night, Maybe Peter contacted the show to let us know that because we play Canned Heat so often we actually come top of the list if you Google Canned Heat!

(turned out he was kidding)

The Twelve Days Of Christmas

On last night's show, as well as all the fantastic music, Andy and Jen re-wrote (and sang - sorry) the song "The Twelve days Of Christmas" but with a Late Night Lock-In twist... everything had to be something you could get from a late night petrol station!

Here's what we came up with....

Twelve brickettes burning
Eleven Flowers a drooping
Ten Teddies a hugging
Nine Leather chamois a dripping
Eight Petrol cans a leaking
Seven Tow ropes a fraying
Six Stale sandwiches a stinking
Four Turtle wax
Three Tax disc holders
Two Bottles of de-icer
And a packet of out of date tea
