The C86 Show on Future Radio, celebrates thirty years of indie pop and is presented by David Eastaugh! From the jingly jangly guitars of the mid-1980s right through to today’s most whimsical, melancholic and quirky pop music, C86 channels the spirit of indie.
The C86 Show is a weekly 1-hour show broadcast on Future Radio, Norwich’s Community Radio station. It is inspired by an NME cassette of the same name. It was a life-changing collection of 22 tracks featuring the likes of Fuzzbox, Stump, Bogshed, Primal Scream, Shop Assistant and The Wolfhounds – 1986’s finest indie music. We also love the Smiths (of course!), Terry and Jerry, the Wedding Present, the Primitives, the Darling Buds and the Flatmates.
But this isn’t just a nostalgia show! We’ll be including bands such as Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers, Nirvana, Pixies, right up to the most recent grooves that wouldn’t be out of place on the John Peel show.
