Former Radio Caroline star DJ Ian MacRae has just released a new episode of his popular podcast “A Radio Station Like No Other”.  It features samples of some of the best of recent programs broadcast by Wilton Bay’s own renegade radio station Seventh Wave FM - uncensored!
There’s a preview of the entertainment at BONKS BRASSERIE AND BAR and this time it’s a truly weird novelty act from Japan. His name is SAIKO FUKUYO. Woz the traffic reporter checks out Wilton Bay traffic in  radio’s weirdest traffic report.
Ian's friend George the one-legged Greek, has written an inspirational poem about being an amputee. And there's another great parody from Brian Coleman saluting Vladimir Putin’s new ballistic missile system. A song that’s right on target! 

You can listen to the 2SM morning star's podcast online or subscribe to it for free on iTunes (which has now been rebranded as Apple Podcasts) or Android at this link
(Be aware that some segments can be adult humour and are tagged explicit.
