As the title suggests, a really busy time on the show tonight, through me messing up my management and booking two bands.

Stop Go Sixty on LiveWire Live on HopeFM 90.1The by now well-established Stop Go Sixty are fresh from the gig they won in a national competition to support McFly. Their sound has changed quite a bit from when I last heard them, which was a few years back courtesy of the Dorset Music Awards, definitely boy band pop/rock, yet with a sharply defined edge to what they write and deliver.

They’ve been active on email, twitter and facebook and as a result I have a record number of calls, emails and texts coming into the studio, we also take half a dozen phone calls. We talk a bit about how they started, stopped, reformed and got to where they are now, and listen to their latest recordings.

Peace Love & Gloves on LiveWire Live Peace Love and Gloves by comparison are fresh, building their reputation, and still seem very much to be working out where they’re going and what’s happening around them. That main thing being the Dorset Music Awards, they’ve just come from the Semi Final stage and have found out they’re in the final at the O2, and say they’ve never worked so hard for anything – practicing 5 days a week between the Semi Final announcement and now (and probably on to the Final).

They play a few tracks live, and we also play out from their EP. Chinners from Rock Regeneration (their biggest fan) has also joined us in the studio – I hand over most of the interviewing segment to him and revert to the role of producer; with 7 of us in the studio it gets a little hot!
