Everything is set for a real celebration of Southport’s musical talent when the new series of Live Sounds starts this Wednesday (7pm-10m) on Mighty Southport Radio (our town’s very own internet radio station).

Live Sounds – which was started by Martin Hovden and which has been running in newspaper column and radio form for more than 11 years – provides a platform for our talented bands and musicians. The only music we play during our three hour show is by unsigned local bands and singers. And we invite them into the studio as our special guests for interviews and to perform acoustic sets.

And Martin is keen to hear from local bands and singer/songwriters.

“I know how hard our bands and musicians work on their music and we want to give them the opportunity to have their songs played on the radio,” explained Martin.

Studio guests already booked for Live Sounds include:


James Gordon (pictured)

One Mark Off

Sarah Walker

Uncle Gregory

Holy Matrimony

A Glitch In The System

Liam Halsall
