Sunday 8pm Till 10pm - The Back To Ours Show
Well, what can we say, started DJing together back in the heady days of the early 90’s financing, organising and promoting our own parties above 5th Avenue in Maidenhead (remember that place!?). We then went onto playing at such venues as The Villa in Uxbridge, Hudson’s Vauxhall, Turnmills, Lakota in Bristol, The Penn Bar plus loads of one off parties and festivals at home and abroad. After a short break we then took on 3 year residency at Bar51 in Windsor (where we had the pleasure of DJing with some of the industries finest DJ’s.). We took our first excursion into Pirate Radio around 94 playing the graveyard shift on Point Blank which was soon upgraded till 10 till midnight on a Friday. We then went onto a long term show (over 10 years!) with the highly successful station ReleaseFM where the 'Back To Ours' Show was born.
How can we describe our musical taste? Well, bit of anything goes really, we don’t like to pigeon hole ourselves into one genre, but it’s got to have a certain edge to it, hence the name of our show the ‘Back To Ours’ sessions. You’ll hear everything from laid back Balearic, House, Hip Hop, Electro to old school Techno with everything in between.
Sunday 4pm Till 6pm
Andy Mac is originally from West London and now lives in Kent. He is a veteran of late 90’s and Noughties pirate radio. During his pirate radio years a show he represented was nominated for an award at the Breakspoll awards night at Fabric nightclub. A lover of all types of dance music, Andy’s DJ style is difficult to pigeonhole and he will be bringing his extensive back catalogue of House, Garage, Breaks, Jungle, Hardcore and Techno to B2O Live from Mac’s Loft. “I got my first set of dodgy belt drive turntables in 1991 and started buying music from all the Soho record shops like Blackmarket Records and Unity. Ray Keith and Nicky BlackMarket are the reason I never had any money in my 20’s. A friend and I became local DJ heroes playing the back room of pubs, football and cricket pavilions etc before moving on to the legendary Chertsey Lock where we would play alongside some of the elite DJ’s of that era.”

Sunday 6pm Till 8pm - The Fear Of Change Show
The fear of change radio show is hosted by dj's OcD and Granite Stoneface. Our policy is - if we like it we play it. We don't concern ourselves with genres, styles or formats, and we play old tunes, new tunes and our tunes. We also produce and work together as the drum bandits and knowledge is a curse and plan to inflict our daft noodlings upon you on a regular basis. We've played clubs, free parties and on pirate radio stations since about '91, and have had record shops, managed stage crews and put on sound systems over the years too. Please join us every Sunday 6-8 pm for some light relief, our tunes might get heavy but we never will. Peace.

Friday 8pm Till 10pm - Deep House Disco
Able to play one record after another fairly competently, and have been doing so for over 25 years.
Been in self imposed exile for a while, but when contacted by the B2O lads about getting the band back together - I couldn't refuse.
I will be playing my usual eclectic mix of all things electronic, drawing from my experience of this crazy merry go round we call disc jockeying, and just being around music.

Friday 10pm Till Midnight
It was 1978, and I received my first 45 for Christmas. It was 'The Cavalry Song' by Jona Lewie - I’ve still got it! After this introduction to vinyl, I started my collection.
In 1988 - when I was 20 years old, I discovered the true house sound, buying my vinyl from specialist shops in London, every week.
I love all genres of House - Classics , Acid, Deep ,Jackin & funky, to name a few.
I last played at raves and club venues in 1992, but have always loved spinning on the decks in the loft ever since.
I’m an original '88 raver, and still enjoy attending an old skool event.
Massive shouts to my DJ & MC friends, some of the true Dons of the rave world, RESPECT!
Tuesday 8pm Till 10pm
