Basildon's Only Alternative
with Eddie Curry and Steve Mead

Hi, welcome to the BOA homepage, the home of all things indie, alternative and rocking here on Eastgate FM, with the obvious exception of all the shows that also play that stuff.

Eddie and Steve went to see Ned's Atomic Dustbin this week and were meant to prepare this week's shows beforehand, things didn't quite go to plan, here is the photographic evidence.

So fingers crossed and tune in Friday and Saturday to see what the end result is!

On Christmas Eve we will be airing Steve's interview with Ginger from The Wildhearts before their Astoria gig this month, as long as we can edit out the swearing in time! Steve also interviewed Longview and that will also be played out on a future show.
