Lincoln’s cup magic…as heard on MatchPoint

Embed from Getty Images There are moments when everything seems to come together so perfectly – and when you’re in radio, that’s exactly the kind of thing you’re waiting for. We wouldn’t normally do this but for those of you who didn’t hear MatchPoint Live on Saturday, we just had to share again something that we think qualifies as both a […]

#SoundsOfWales Selection Box

To put it mildly, 2016 is probably leaving you with something to…erm, complain about. Happily, you should have nothing to regret from this year in Welsh music. We certainly don’t, having set off right from 1st January with what’s turned into a series of occasional Sounds of Wales showcases. I’ve surprised myself that we’ve even reached this point. But then, I […]

#SoundsOfWales presents…Welsh Music Prize 2016

This was going to be a show about a glorious night of Welsh music that never quite was. When we first heard about the twelve-strong shortlist for one of the industry’s biggest nights of the year, all told it was going to be a magnificent occasion – live music, street food, after party raves, the works…all within a hipster’s paradise at […]

Gareth Joy presents…#SoundsOfWalesIV

The summer’s gone. You escaped a muddy car park in Porthmadog…somehow, you recovered from the glorious summer of football and you managed to survive…erm, other things. So it’s pretty fitting that we opted for (near enough) the Autumn equinox to present another brand new Welsh music collection – the fourth in an all-too occasional series of late night specials we’ve been […]

The Greatest Welsh Football Anthems…Ever?

Embed from Getty Images I’d like to make a profound apology to every Welsh football fan on behalf of Point FM. Time was whenever a major international football tournament rolled around, an estranged former colleague felt the best way to gear up the North Wales Coast was to blast out the usual trio of ‘Three Lions’, ‘Vindaloo’ and if he was […]

Gareth Joy presents… #SoundsForSummer

I’m not a fan of short nights. I hate the idea of finding day breaking at 4.30am after a mere couple of hours of persisting twilight dusk a bit too much for the mind to cope with. And don’t start about thunderstorms. But where possible, I like to make the most of them. And with the Saturday job out of […]

Gareth Joy presents…#SoundsForDewiSant

You may remember when this year on Point FM began with a special survey of the best new ‘Sounds of Wales’ from the year just ended. If I’m being modest, we had a good response to that programme, though if I’m being honest, we actually had a tremendous response. We couldn’t let it lie for long – so to mark […]
