Join The World’s Virtual Pub Quiz
Sunday Fundays are but a distant memory… a bloody Mary to kick things off followed by a roast dinner at your favourite local, finally cramming around a table with your music-nerd-pals to take part in a pub quiz.
We feel you – The Boogaloo Pub was a weekend shrine for the hungover and the hungry and our pub quiz was categorically legendary.
Luckily, with technology on our side we are able to bring you a slice of your usual Sunday shenanigans with our ‘Quizness As Usual’ music quiz, live on Boogaloo Radio every week 8-10 pm GMT.
You can win prizes too. We are awarding the winners each week with a meal and a drink on the house at The Boogaloo Pub, when it re-opens. If you’ve tried the chicken wings you know that we’re not messing about here.

Clash Magazine x Tommy Hilfiger: Pete Denton And Portia Freeman
On an unassuming corner of a North London high street sits The Boogaloo, a pub that’s deservedly carved its own beer-soaked place in the annals of British rock and roll. Once home to Shane MacGowan, it has counted Nick Cave and the late, great Joe Strummer among its patrons, while The Libertines were formerly hired to pull pints behind the bar.
Nowadays, The Boogaloo is still rocking, but to the sound of its own playlisted beat. For, ensconced in its beer garden in a former bin shed is a humble studio from which Boogaloo Radio is broadcast: a 24-hour station transmitting shows that echo the pub’s heritage, courtesy of presenters drawn from that musical realm.
Today, two of its presenters have arrived early for their slot, and have brought some very special guests along for the adventure.
Portia Freeman and Pete Denton are the voices behind The Two Peez Pod-cast, a Wednesday morning programme that offers a steady stream of top tunes alongside the pair’s naturally intimate banter. The secret behind the show’s informality is the fact that the two are actually married. What you hear is the sound of a husband and wife just being themselves for two hours.
