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! Get in touch if you wanna play along.Let us know if the show is any good.

Also, don't want to big it up but these could be some of our most cohesive links yet.Let us know if the show is any good.

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! Press play to enjoy some standard fayre from The Night Train.I'm hungover today so can't really work out anything witty to say so I'm just gonna publish the show....Let us know if the show is any good.

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. You can also get in touch to ask for request or shout-out atnighttrain93.2[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.org
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.

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

We were kind temped to upload this before the show had even gone out. The concern was that it was break the space-time continuum. The downside of that woud be no more late night radio shows!Anyway, the new format rolls on. 2 blokes recording an hour of music in their spare rooms.This week, hour 1 is (sorta) picked by The Long Suffering Alma. If you enjoy the show, make sure you tell her the tunes were good.Hour 2 picked by Paul so it's the usual high standard.Remember!

Part 2 of our "TNT tip o' the hat" to Massive Attack's album, Blue Lines. This the 2nd hour, sans hot chat, for your listening pleasure.
Sitting in the sun today, listentening to a Horace Andy gig Manchester's Band on the Wall were streaming, we got to thinking about his relationship with Massive Attack. A quick look online and we saw that Blue Lines was released 19 years ago today! Many moons ago, we made a tribute show that we thought was pretty good. Turns out, if you take away our chat, it was one of our best. So today we're uploading it for your listening pleasure. It's a good 'un, even if we do say so ourselves. We're doing it in two parts as it's in glorious 320kbps so will sound good in headphones and speakers.
For our first attempt at a 2hr show, we thought we'd rely on the ol' "tenuous theme" to steer the good ship TNT. This week, as it's the start of the new tax year, we're bringing you a money special! All songs about money, for 2 hours. Let us know if the show is any good.
