BROADCASTING 24/7 FROM the boogaloo PUB.
London’s Boogaloo Radio is steeped in musical history. In 1993 Gerry O’Boyle opened up a pub called Filthy MacNasty’s. Reading this, you might already feel like you’re on familiar ground- but for our new friends, Filthy’s was a hive of creative activity. The Libertines formed here, Shane MacGowan lived upstairs, Johnny Depp served a few pints of Guinness to the punters and in the hay-day and it become the unofficial NME office, where secret meetings took place to decide the fate of the music industry. It eventually closed down and a new era was born, in the shape of The Boogaloo Pub.
Let’s fast forward. It’s 2017 and Jenn Crothers, friend of The Boogaloo, was working in online radio. She pitched the idea of The Boogaloo having their own radio shack- it sounded like a ridiculous idea, but they took a chance and cleared out the old shed in the garden, begged and borrowed some radio equipment and called up the little black book of regulars to man the desk. Luckily for them, everyone wanted to spin some tunes. There is now over 75 of the most influential people in music for the past 50 years, manning the decks and bringing you a radio show like no other.
Our shows are hosted by our pub regulars- from Hollywood actors, legendary musicians and the biggest label bosses to local parents, business and bands.
