Side Hustle/ Radio Broadcasting
Boogaloo Radio is an online radio station based inside the former bin shed, of the Boogaloo Pub in North London.
It was born out of the idea to bring the rock and roll essence of this iconic pub to a wider audience and to keep the stories of the characters who frequent this bar, alive.
There are not many Londoners left, who haven't their own tale or two to tell about a night at The Boogaloo and the station's roster is compiled of over 75 presenters- actors, musicians, writers, directors, locals and punters. Alan McGee, label boss of Creation Records, The Libertines' Carl Barat, The Pogues' Shane MacGowan and The Fall's Brix Smith all host their own shows here. Guests have included La Roux, RUN DMC, Bananarama, Placebo and Johnny Marr.
It's been described as the world's first 'global-local' and The Times named it the best online station in 2019.
Not bad for a little bin shed...
