Brum Radio takes over Digbeth Dining Club
Brum Radio is one of Digbeth’s more hidden creative gems. Broadcasting out of a small but perfectly formed studio on Allison Street, the station has made itself at home in The Warehouse. Welcomed by their huge heart, the station has been working hard to give Birmingham an even bigger voice. Their focus they say, is on “local music, alternative sounds and local voices to create a unique and exciting range of shows.”
Having been a resident of the creative quarter for almost a year now, Brum Radio is celebrating in true, collaborative, Digbeth fashion. Together with newly formed events company, Four Eyes Events, they will be taking over Birmingham’s go-to street food destination, Digbeth Dining Club this Saturday 18th February.
Spread over 11 hours and two venues, it all kicks off in Mama Roux’s at 17.30 when Brum Radio’s own Danny de Reybekill will host a panel discussion about radio today with special guests from Radar Radio, Roundhouse and Rinse FM. Following this, taking to the stage will be jazz-infused, Birmingham acts; Shokunin, Barbella and Delta Autumn. All the while Spotlight will be filled with the delightful sounds of Brum Radio DJs and the delicious aromas of DDC vendors serving food.
Under the twinkling eye of Spotlight’s glistening disco ball, the night will then be taken into the early hours with more artists associated with the station; Before the Sol, Goosensei and Craig Charles favourite, Sam Redmore who, echoing his radio show, will play the night’s midnight mix. Seeing the night through till 04.00 will be Brummy residents Shadow City Soundsystem.
All proceeds of the evening will go towards funding Brum Radio and continuing to give Birmingham an alternative voice. The panel discussion and live music in Mama Roux’s is free entry, with part two in Spotlight £5 entry from 22:30.
