#318 The HOTWAX Special (2nd July 2023)

Update: 2023-07-03


Some time soon, we'll do a "normal" show... but this week isn't one of those! For this show, it's all about HOTWAX.

This Friday 9th July is a HOTWAX special.... It's been a long time brewing... After scouring the darkest corners of South Yorks, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Greater Manchester, Powlo's tracked down and reunited a bunch of the original Thirsty Ear (2005-2014) squadron (and one interloper) for something of a one-off special 6xDJ back2back session!

This show is all the normal stuff you'd be likely to hear at a HOTWAX to whet your appetite for Friday.

If you like what you hear, join us live (almost) every Sunday 9pm-11pm on SheffieldLive! 93.2fm, via the TuneIn Radio App or

Get in touch with requests, recommendations and guest mix inquiries!

We're also available for family functions, weddings, funerals, boat launches and more.
