A RECORD BREAKING SONIC BANDWAGON SHOW ON PURE 107.8FM



Big show for Sonic Bandwagon last week as we announced the Alternative Eurovision winner, Mr Alex Kretov with his wonderful track 'Krok.' What a response we had from Ukraine on the night thanks to all who participated and voted.

We also broke a PURE 107.8FM record, playing the longest ever track on the station. Previously held by Rick Stuart from Roots and Fusion with  Miles Davis - Shhh / Peaceful off In A Silent Way at 18:16, we obliterate this by over 6 minutes with Transatlantic and their incredible prog opus "Into the Blue" taken from latest album Kaleidoscope.


And you can also expect the usual myriad of amazing tunes as we provide another two hours of Underground Music Uncovered.
