The Breakfast Club

That Purple Film Show moves to an early breakfast show slot (mainly to get us out of bed).
We will have our usual countdown of the Box Office Top 10, reviews of the week's new releases, on demand selection, Liam's artsy film of the week and an attempt to 'Defending the Undefendable'.
We review what's going on in the news, play all the latest chart music as well as our own film and non-film music selections. On top of all that we ring Bertie's Gran to get her opinions on modern youth culture in 'Acceptable in Your 80s?' and try 'Bringing Sexy Back' with poetic readings of song lyrics from chart tracks which are in fact far raunchier than we realised when we were at school.

What a Price to Play

We've been doing this slot all year, and literally had the most fun! We do jazz and folk music and love to vary it up a bit each week, but still including some absolute classics.

The Music Round

Join me, Matt Calvert, for the third series of Purple Radio’s beloved quiz show. Every Saturday afternoon I’ll be giving you your weekly dose of music trivia! As well as a chance to be quizzed on music from all eras, with the occasional tune you may have forgotten, The Music Round also comes with some bonus features (not like on a DVD though, Purple Radio doesn’t have a budget for behind the scenes footage). In the Cracking and Crappy Covers you guess the original, in Back in Time you guess the year, and in The Parental Play you simply bask in the obscurity of my parent’s CD collection.
Audience participation is actively encouraged, no matter how ridiculous the answers may be! If you're missing your local pub quiz, as I do all too much, then The Music Round is the perfect remedy. There may even be the odd guest contestant along the way.
