As you may have seen I have been testing out a new radio network called ‘Unsigned & Inspired Radio’ (U & I Radio) for the last 6 months, which have been going really well and we are very near a full launch!. A new and fresh website has been created with only a few tweaks left for us to sort at www.uandiradio.com
This will be our new home to conduct more great ‘Live’ broadcasts on a weekly basis. When we are not ‘Live’ you can listen to a vast database of International Unsigned artists of most genres playing original music to your heart’s content! We also play classic mainstream and rare tracks from days gone by with a healthy mix of Reggae, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Blues and world music.
As the station develops we will have more fun and funky DJ’s, talks shows and worldly link-ups to discover more great Unsigned & Inspired music.
We have decided to stop using the Ustream and researching doing the same through Youtube. So for now the only way to listen is via our dedicated Microsite or via the TuneIn App.
Many thanks for your support and please remember to like all the new pages and help us to…
Big Scott Radio has been asked to return to the lovely island of Malta on December 6th 2014. This time we have the honour of broadcasting from The Electro Lobster Project, Ballutta, St. Julian’s. The Colonel and all Shipmates of Malta are working hard behind the scenes, to create yet another amazing line-up from around the island. Confirmed so far we have David Ellul, Alex Fairman and Greek Singer/Songwriter Maro Sol Liapi. The band confirmed so far are Eversity and Maddee Loveday with her band whose members are from Venezuela, Spain, Malta, and UK.

About the Electro Lobster Project –
Straight away the name should confuse then intrigue you into wondering what it’s all about; a treasure of a place nestled within the historic beauty of one of Malta’s most eye-catching art nouveau buildings.
Delicious food, stunning decor and an enviable selection of premium whiskeys. An absolute must. As the name would suggest Lobster is their speciality. The rest of the menu is classic Sicilian, sourcing the freshest ingredients and allowing their rich flavours to dominate each dish.
As a contrast the bar snack menu is a constantly changing international fusion of small dishes ranging from gourmet popcorn to twelve hour slow roasted pork belly bites.
The cocktail barmen at Electro Lobster Project make their own infusions and chutneys, keeping away from mass produced syrupy shortcuts, producing the most creative & freshest cocktails in the area.
With its own live stage and live recording studio, ELP is set to become Malta’s no 1 venue for both established and up and coming bands.
After 4+ years of volunteering at Radio Cardiff 98.7fm my shows are surplus to requirements so will cease on Monday 24th November 2014 at 4pm. The Final show will highlight a few of the great acts discovered along the way plus interviews with Phil Watkis and The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco. As usual we will finish with our popular ‘Thought for the Day’ and the last song will be my first ever Dubplate received from the amazing Phil Watkis 🙂 Click here for show details & playlist
I would like to thank Radio Cardiff 98.7fm for allowing me to utilize their facilities and platform, to educate myself and my Trainee Volunteers to the New-Age ways that radio is managed and broadcast. I would also like to thank those who made the journey a pleasurable one and hope to work with you in the future.
To all the Trainee Volunteers that have come on-board my shows over the years, I hope that the fun times and training we shared will be a help in your future. Finally to all the loyal listeners who have shared the love & links to the amazing interviews and exclusives we’ve had along the way 🙂
Now is the time for me to concentrate on what I love, to chat to real people and showcase the amazing Unsigned Artists out there, who have very few Radio platforms to demonstrate their amazing skills in a ‘Live Broadcasting’ situation. As one door closes, many new doors are opening to continue broadcasting the music I discover on a weekly basis. So be sure to follow the journey on all social media outlets and check out the Feedback from the artists themselves.
Once again, A big ‘Thank You’ to those of you who helped create and share some amazing memories.
ps I am conducting my own Show Survey so please feel free to listen to any of my shows and let me know your thoughts.
Feel free to leave your comments below 🙂
This is a World Exclusive direct from Paul B Allen III(The Platters.) It was an honour to chat to him a while back and then receive this track before anyone else has had the chance to broadcast it 🙂
Paul creates a Soulful and sensual mood, which lets the mind drift away and paint great pictures, if only for a few minutes. This is a wonderful summer tune in the making.
Go and say hi to Paul right now 🙂

An interesting and nostalgic interview for students of Exposure Radio. I was asked to choose some tracks and explain why. Sure was a fun and interesting insight into where I started and what still drives me to enjoy Radio 🙂
What an amazing experience that was sparked by an interview on Radio Cardiff with Maddee Loveday. Maddee and her manager said that I should visit Malta, so I did. In the space of just over 3 weeks the Zone-In Promotions Team in Malta (Maddee, Emi & Alex) pulled together a selection of Unsigned music from around the island. We then broadcast them from the ‘Black Pearl’ Schooner and then from Reflections in Melliaha. The whole journey was an eye-opening experience with alot being learned and shared with the new musical family in Malta. A BIG thank you to you guys and hope to be back soon for the next voyage on the Black Pearl and drink again in the Cross Keys too. So many wonderful and spiritually awake people over there, with a real passion for new music getting exhibited to the World 🙂
This is the full Audio recording of the first ever ‘Live Broadcast’ on The Black Pearl in Malta.
