Still going strong after 30 years, Steve Barker’s On The Wire show on BBC Radio Lancashire is the longest running alternative music show on British radio. Barker’s tastes are eclectic, and it’s no secret he’s a champion for Jamaican music, which is a mainstay feature on the show. Looking back at three decades of broadcasting, Barker has just uploaded dozens of On The Wire broadcasts to Mixcloud, with incredible selections and legendary guest features from Lee Perry, Burning Spear, Augustus Pablo, Mikey Dread and many more. It’s like a Steve Barker does Dub retrospective. Definitely head over here to check out some of the mixes.
