Richard Penguin's Eclectic Selection

Richard Penguin's Eclectic Selection with Richard Penguin

A fortnightly, two-hour show, Richard plays a varied mix of music from the lesser known to the more familiar artists of the 70s to the 90s with occasional forays into the 60s and 21st century.

You’ll hear 70s Prog and Jazz Rock from across Europe, late 1970s and early 80s Punk and New Wave music and alternative and quirky 80s and 90s artists and bands. That’s not all!

Richard’s Eclectic Selection also includes Local & World Music and Folk and Acoustic artists. Think that’s it? No – Richard will also feature classic albums and music lost in the mists of time. 

A show that truly lives up to its name!
