It has been years since Strangeways Radio stopped broadcasting as a radio show and converted into a blog format. Our reader remind us that they miss the variety of programming that the station offered. By tuning in you would find a nice mix if new releases and classics covering the genres of brit pop, shoegaze, indie, synthpop, dark wave, alternative classics and more.
The curators at Strangeways Radio have heard your requests and have created a massive playlist representative of the music that aired on the station. You can just play this on shuffle and have an enjoyable listening experience. The playlist is weighted towards the bigger artists (ie. New Order, Depeche Mode, The Cure, etc) but you will find a nice sprinkling of other bands throughout. Plus, you won’t just hear the hits. Plenty of b-sides, deep cuts and remixes are thrown in here.
Listening to this playlist on shuffle is the closest we can come to emulating The Strangeways Radio Experience. If there are any songs or bands that you love from the old radio station that aren’t represented on here, please do let us know!
