Wayne Lundqvist Ford puts out a weekly show in Sweden which is also aired by stations both in the USA and his home country the UK.
BIO: Since the age of three Wayne has been spinning vinyl. After spinning Action Man around on the family Dansette at 78rpm had grown weary, Wayne decided to try out some of his mothers records, the first of which was The Beatles "This Boy" which also played at his favourite speed of 78rpm several times before trying out 33rpm and then the correct speed of 45rpm, which was when his love affair of music started, The Beatles were followed by Buddy Holly, who Wayne still considers the roots of popular music, Billy Fury, The Who, The Small Faces, The Kinks etc.
Growing up in the 70's, Wayne had exposure to many styles starting with Ska, onto Glam, then came Punk and the Mod revival shortly after and then he found the band of his generation, The Jam. The "Ice Cream Man Power Pop And More" plays Power Pop, Ska, Punk, Mod, various 60's styles, including Hammond Jazz, Mod Revival, Northern Soul, Motown and anything else that features strong melodies, great harmonies and a bit of attitude.

My mom's Elvis albums and movies like American Graffiti and Buddy Holly Story left quite the impression on me that continues to this day. I seek out record stores everywhere I go looking for music that fuels this passion. I've done radio promotions for over 20 years and started this radio show in early 2014 as an outlet to help spread music that moves me. My goal is to help people remember the music they loved and turn them on to new favorites. Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour is a unique blend of modern and vintage rockabilly, blues, surf, roots, early rock and country. We have exclusive interviews with artists both new and legendary like Dion, The Beach Boys, Billy Burnette, Robert Gordon, Phil Alvin (The Blasters), Kim Wilson (Fabulous Thunderbirds) and much more!

In addition to receiving new music direct from bands, record labels, and promoters, Simon spends many happy hours every week scouring the internet for new and unheard acts to play on Loose Canon.

Brian has wanted to be a DJ ever since he was 7-years-old growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area and his parents bought him a cassette tape recorder. He began talking over the songs he heard on the radio in his best 1970s Top 40 Boss Jock voice. It wasn’t until college in 1980 that his dream was fully realized and Brainwaves was born, then as a New Wave program. Brainwaves took a hiatus until 2011 while Brian built a career first as a hi-tech entrepreneur and more recently as a freelance journalist and editor. His writing can be found all over the Internet, including at The Jerusalem Post, Israel21c, the AIM Group, and on his blog This Normal Life, which has appeared weekly since 2002. Brian lives with his wife and three children in Jerusalem.
Jonathan L is an American radio deejay, programmer, and entertainment media publisher. He organized his first large music festival for alternative station KUKQ in Phoenix, Arizona in 1989, years before the launch of festivals like Lollapalooza and the KROQ Weenie Roasts. For this reason, he is often called the “father of all radio festivals.” By the late ‘90s, Jonathan L was considered a national go-to guy for alternative radio, and in a 1996 interview with New York Now, he rightly predicted “more British and rhythm-driven music shaking up the mid-90s cabal of American-born alterna-rock bands.”
He once again returned to KUKQ from mid-1994 to mid-1995 to run the station in its wildest punk rock form. Among his most popular programs was “The Monday Morning Music Meeting Live,” which gave listeners a chance to phone in and provide their own input on the music, which was added to the rotation that day.
Jonathan L currently lives in Berlin, Germany, where he continues hosting his radio show, "The Lopsided World of L." His show is currently broadcast worldwide on a number of stations including Radio Lantau.
