This week was a bit of an anomaly... neither of us knew what the other one picked for each hour. It's not that we plan the show (can you tell?), just give each other heads-up on what we're playing. Not sure that's happened since way back in March. Luckily, we didn't both pick the same songs to play. Even better, we both enjoyed each others hour.Remember!

This week in community radio... we mixed it up again! For no reason and completely unplanned, we both decided to do a bit of a theme hour.Hour one sees Paul dig into his extensive record collection to give an airing to the purchases he's managed to sneak past his better half.Hour two is a much more low-key affair with Steve playing downtempo music in the style of Kid Koala's "Music to Draw To" sessions.Hope you like it, don't let us know which hour you prefer as that'll make one of us upset.You can also get in touch to ask for request or shout-out at;nighttrain93.2[at]gmail[dot]com or https://www.twitter.com/RadioNightTrain on the tweets.To experience the show (sorta) live n direct.. tune into Sheffield Live, Sundays 9pm-11pm on 93.2FM, via the TuneIn Radio App or www.sheffieldlive.orgSHOW NOTESKid Koala's Music To Draw To streamhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ie5tv3k3u8

It's pre-record BAU this week as Paul has returned from the west and Steve has returned from the east! There's no guest mix, the self indulgence was toned back so it's just 2 hours of great music, hot chat and a great mini-set of mid-2000s glitchy-electronica. Point of note this week, both of us have realised we can put a jazzy effect on the mic when we do our links. Pay close attention and see if you can notice. Full disclaimer, this does not enhance the standard of the waffle.Let us know if the show is any good.

Eastie, we're still waiting on that guest mix.
This week for reasons best known to himself, Steve decided to do ANOTHER solo show. Paul was on holiday (tune in next week to hear about that) so we couldn't leave you with nothing!It's a pretty normal affair until you make it to hour two... then Steve hands over the Sheffield Live airwaves to himself for a 30 minute guest mix of mean psychedelic-guitar-fuzz action.Sorry this upload is a day late... Steve's fancy new laptop has decided to break so it's take a minute to get an old one working for the listen-again crew.Let us know if the show is any good.

These pre-records are a strange beast, a real game of two halves and other cliches. This week is no different. This week sounded like two very different shows, hour one sounds somewhat like an hour two and hour two sounds a bit like an hour one.Anyway, you can be the judge of that when you listen for yourselves!Let us know if the show is any good.

That's right! For (hopefully) one week only, Steve ditches the deadweight and soars with a solo show. It's been a minute since he's been trusted to take the reins on his own so the pressure is always on when left to his own devices.As you expect with a 2hr show from Steve, it's got;- Instagram obsessions- Talk about 20 year old radio shows- Mindless rambling about songs that is low on factsHe also announces the latest TNT Album Challenge!

We are totally gettin' in the groove now. It's been a few weeks but this show could be proof that we (somewhat) know what we're doin' with these pre-records.This week, tune-in to hear about Paul's drink of choice and Steve's current obsessions amongst other things!

This show might contain some of the best links since we were in a studio. While that's not sayin' a lot, it's still pretty exciting. There's also new songs, old songs, a kinda mini-mix and tales of lockdown adventures.We say this each week but nobody does, so we're gonna write it in capital letters...LET US KNOW IF THE SHOW IS ANY GOOD BY GETTING IN TOUCH!LINES OF COMMUNICATION ARE OPEN FOR REQUESTS, DEDICATIONS, TALL TALES AND ANYTHING ELSE.nighttrain93.2[at]gmail[dot]com or https://www.twitter.com/RadioNightTrainTo experience the show (sorta) live n direct.. tune into Sheffield Live, Sundays 9pm-11pm on 93.2FM, via the TuneIn Radio App or www.sheffieldlive.orgPETE ROCK'S MIX THAT STEVE WAS HARPING ON ABOUT...https://www.mixcloud.com/oldschooltapes/pete-rock-one-world-mix-on-bbc-radio-1/

After the excitement of the last few weeks, it's back to the grind with a standard show!

This is our 200th show on Sheffield Live. We were talking about what we were going to do to celebrate this milestone. Usually, we’d be doing another oddball show but it didn’t sit right with us.A couple of weeks ago, for show 198, we did a show called “Rhythms of Resistance”, songs that spoke to protest, struggle and change.Those with a keener ear might have noticed we only played one song from the reggae family tree. To be honest, there are too many to choose from, enough to fill a show by themselves (possibly more). So that’s what we’re doing tonight! 2hrs of ska, rocksteady, roots reggae and more.We’re didn't talk much in this show as we wanted to focus on the power of the music so we’re writing this to explain what we’re doing and say thanks for the support over the last 199 shows.Paul & Steve

So this is another great show in the pantheon of The Night Train. Powlo takes the 1st hour, Steve brings it all home for hour 2. The usual stuff, anniversary cuts, random waffle and a varied selection of genres for 2 hours.Let us know if the show is any good.

This week, more than ever, we have been watching the news, trying to work out what we can do with our platform. It’s only modest but staying silent in these times isn’t an option, so tonight’s show is going to be a bit different.Regular listeners will know that music from the African diaspora runs throughout this show. Whether it’s from the spirit of Congo Square, sound system culture of Jamaica, block parties of the south Bronx, the list could go on.For this show, we spoke even less than normal. We picked 2 hours of songs that speak to protest, struggle and change. Music to soundtrack reflection, rhythms of resistance.We’re not going to tell you what to do, that’s not our place. We’re still not 100% sure what to do ourselves. We just know that being quiet isn’t an option any more.Hopefully you’ll have a chance to meditate on the kind of change you want for the world.As always, we hope you enjoy the show.Paul & Steve

nother show in two parts. P kicks things off and S brings it home. In terms of music, this is a like a classic TNT (aka it's all over the shop). Usual mix though of old and new, strange and straightforward.Let us know if the show is any good.

This week sees the return of both of us to our respective studios to bring 2 hours of (quality) entertainment. This week, it's a bit of a sombre tone as there are lots of tribute tracks to people that are now swirling in the heavens.1st set this week is a Little Richard tribute mix as is only fitting. Rest of the show it taken up with old stuff, new stuff and a bunch of other stuff!Let us know if the show is any good.

A rare solo outing for Steve this week as the chores at home meant Paul had to sit this one. Of course, this might mean that you're not into the show as you prefer his picks to Steve's... and that's fine.He's picked some stuff from old shows and plenty of stuff that's been kickin' around the "songsToBePlayed" folder. Due to the show being pre-recorded, there's no mention of folks that sadly passed towards the end of the week. Don't forget, if you want to get in toouch, hit us up on nighttrain93.2[at]gmail[dot]com or twitter.com/RadioNightTrain on the tweets.To experience the show (sorta) live n direct.. tune into Sheffield Live, Sundays 9pm-11pm on 93.2FM, via the TuneIn Radio App or www.sheffieldlive.org
What's this?!? Another guest mix?!? You're darn tootin'. We're not messing around any more. Serious radio business from now on! This week the mix is from Syke. He's the presenter on Restless, which you can catch on Exeter’s Phonic FM – it goes out every third Saturday of the month from 10-12pm.Catch his past shows here:https://www.mixcloud.com/simon-stennett/His mix is "the loudest, fastest and wyldest bits of 60s RnB,Garage and Freakbeat" something we think we can all get behind!nighttrain93.2[at]gmail[dot]com or twitter.com/RadioNightTrain on the tweets.To experience the show (sorta) live n direct.. tune into Sheffield Live, Sundays 9pm-11pm on 93.2FM, via the TuneIn Radio App or www.sheffieldlive.org

Now, more than ever, we need your helps to make the show!You can get in touch with requests, recommendations, suggestions, stories or just an old fasioned shout-out at:nighttrain93.2[at]gmail[dot]com or twitter.com/RadioNightTrain on the tweets.To experience the show (sorta) live n direct.. tune into Sheffield Live, Sundays 9pm-11pm on 93.2FM, via the TuneIn Radio App or www.sheffieldlive.org
