Beard on Subcity radio!

Beard magazine takes over the airwaves for a new show on Glasgow University's Subcity radio.

Stew and Neil present two mind blowing hours of cult, underground and esoteric music. Expect pop, punk, psych, folk, prog, jazz, noise, country, improv, funk, electronica, hip-hop...

Special session guests! Like the Velvet Underground and Fairport Convention having a hoedown in Kelvingrove Park, the mighty Lucky Luke will be in to play some new songs!

We'll be celebrating the career of Beard hero Robert Wyatt and previewing some tracks from his amazing new album, Comic Opera. And you can hear excerpts of Beard's interview with the great man.

We'll be previewing Monorail film club's Sep 23 screening of Silver Jew, a documentary on David Berman and his merry band, and Holy Modal Rounders, a film about the 60s cult legends.

And listen out for our jingles, recorded specially for us by some of the leading names in the music industry. Not 'alf!

You can listen live on the radio and online. But don't worry if you're otherwise engaged, you can listen again online throughout the week.

Tuesday 29th September, 7-9pm on 106.6FM or

There are a host of new shows for the new term. We can heartily recommend the show from DIY promoters extraordinaire, Nuts & Seeds. That's on Monday 27th from 2-4pm and is sure to rock your socks. And big Beardy love goes out to Black Static Transmissions, who will be bringing the NOISE right after we go out on the Tuesday.

To whet your appetite, here's a sublime clip of Robert Wyatt performing Sea Song with trombone goddess Annie Whitehead...
