During lockdown, in a quiet corner of Morecambe, the static noise of a tuning dial can be heard as people across the world wide web, turn on to Radio New Planet City.
Taking over the frequencies are the dappled vibrations of old favourites and forgotten, undiscovered gems. From 70's groundbreaking electronic post punk to avant garde jazz and lo-fi explorations.
Jump aboard for a sixty minute excursion, great selections, and cool concepts. Listen at your leisure. Once the shows are aired you can listen to them again, anytime, here and forever.

Launches FESTIVAL DAY | Sun 9 Aug | 2pm
by Kriss Foster
Kriss was originally lined up to be this year's Luck of the Draw artist in the drawing booth.....but obviously things had to undergo a radical rethink for matters we are all too familiar with now.
In the hands of creative extroidinare whose talents cross paint, pencil, writing and music - we knew we were in good hands.
Over the last couple of weeks Kriss has been in conversation with our creative community writing bespoke poems then weaving his chats into verse. Then on Festival Day he'll be delivering his creations for our Creative Champions to enjoy.
Make My Day! regulars Inner State are back in Morecambe for Festival day - of course, in a totally new way to ensure that people are safe inline with social distancing!
They'll be about the West End at an unconfirmed time and spontaneous locations, sparking magic and delight wherever they go - so keep your eyes peeled for a creative suprise!
