Les Miserable’s Singles Club
Les Miserable’s Singles Club is the home of classic singles on Boogaloo Radio, broadcast Monday nights 8-10pm. Working with a different theme each week, Les selects 10 essential 7’s, as well as working through his favourite punk, post-punk and reggae cuts. Les is usually joined by a musical pal and previous guests have included members of Fake Laugh, On Video and Qlowski. Previous themes have included B-sides, cover versions, non-album singles and, most divisively, songs about trains.
When he’s not broadcasting from the Boogaloo bin shed, Les Miserable is the frontman of post-punk band Italia 90, who completed their first UK headline tour in 2020, and over the last year have travelled to Portugal, Belgium, France and The Netherlands, making friends and generally having a bit of a laugh. Listeners can expect appearances from the other members of Italia 90, most notably Les’ sidekick and best bud, J Dangerous.
Les first joined the Boogaloo family after making the long journey from Lewisham to appear as a guest on Peggy’s Daylight Rockery. He was hosting the Single’s Club within a week of this first visit and has also appeared on Dancing with the Fridge. Italia 90 made an appearance at the pub for a Halloween gig in 2019, and Les can usually be found huddled in a corner frantically scribbling last minute notes from early on a Monday evening.
