Gary & Karis met at Film School in 1991. Both qualified as sound recordists. Gary specialising in production, Karis in editing. After years pursuing careers they joined up again in 2004 to form a scriptwriting team with a view to producing screenplays and radio drama.
We play all types of music: Pop, Blues, Folk, Jazz, Country, Choirs, Traditional, Classical, Brass, 20s, 30s Swing, Rockabilly, Americana, Bluegrass - all of which we have in abundance here in the North East!
We play North East musicians, singers and bands from the past and the present. You can hear new releases by unsigned artists and tracks from Geordie megastars like The Animals, Dire Straits, The Shadows etc - but don’t expect the tracks you hear on all the other shows!
The Geordie Hour goes out on several local stations at various times and is repeated throughout the week. We even have a 4am repeat on Saturdays to cater for ex-pat Geordies living in Australia, Malaysia etc.
The Geordie Hour is a not-for-profit show. The stations we transmit on are all community and hospital charity stations who can’t afford the licences for listen-again facilities. We do however have a small selection of shows archived so you can listen at your leisure.
