Roger's Playlists


roger_wright_foto solo


The Roger Wright Music Show, broadcast live every Wednesday, 12-2, repeated on Sunday, 1-3, offers you an eclectic mix of music from the past, usually including several singer-songwriters. The shows sometimes have a special theme. Requests are welcome. Playlists will be posted here after every show. I'm also often the presenter in the "Community Hour" slot on Thursdays at 10am, where we talk with interesting people who live on The Wirral (there’s a dedicated page for the Community Hour shows under the “Show stuff” button). .
