Medium vs. Music: Cherry Red Records Joins Boogaloo Radio

by | Nov 16, 2019 | News

‘We’ve been not so much ‘specific’ but what we feel is important as a music release…’

Cherry Red is a record label founded way back in 1978 by a man called Iain McNay. Fast forward to Nov 2019 and they’re joining ranks with us, by bringing you an official ‘Cherry Red Records’ show every Sunday 8-10pm hosted by Iain himself. 

Now, we would have had some of you at ‘McNay’, but for those not familiar with this iconic label, read on and get to know your new favourite show on Boogaloo…

‘My fear is anyone that’s too balanced as a character, probably isn’t going to be a very creative musician…’

For the past 40 years they’ve combined a ‘formidable past’ with an innovative backbone to remain consistently as one of the most respected record labels in the world, and so we are only too delighted to welcome them into our gang (or, ‘The Boogaloo Massive’- a phrase coined by Alan McGee).

From Jack Bruce (Cream), Todd Rundgren and Suzi Quatro to Dead Kennedys, Hawkwind, Inspiral Carpets, Felt and The Fall, Cherry Red’s artists come from every corner of the industry and you can start to see why Boogaloo Radio and Cherry Red go hand in hand. Lawrence of Felt has guested a few times on our station and Brix Smith Start herself hosts a live show Wednesdays 12-2pm.

So, depending where on Planet Earth you are, this broadcast will come to you Sundays 10-12pm GMT. You can do this via clicking ‘listen live’ on, download our (brand new) app for free (both iOS & Android) OR come to the Boogaloo Pub in London (you get to listen approx. 2 seconds earlier than the rest of ‘The Boogaloo Massive’).
