There's an awful lot happening on D:U:M radio this week, and we've picked out the very best bits for your delight and delectation.....

Monday
11am -1pm La Roux
The electropop princess will be swinging by Dalston way and delving into her vast collection of, yep, you guessed it…gorgeous and sweet electropop gems.

1-2pm Bombay Bicycle Club
At just sixteen, these boys sure know a thing or two about making clever melodies with some serious clout.

6-7pm Phantom
Spend an hour locked in diligent musical appreciation for this gloomy duo.

Tuesday
10-12pm Rakes
They swapped their 22 grand jobs in the city to make post-punk anthems instead. And we think they definitely made the right choice. Tune in to hear what makes these boys tick and listen to them while away their two hour set with a load of witty banter.



2:00pm – 4:00pm Intensive Care
Pining for the weekend already? Well hop on board the disco train with Andrew Perry and Declan Allen, aka club masters Intensive Care. Expect lashings of jump-up punk, reggae, soul, rock and electronica.

10-12pm DUM on tour in Japan
Flying around the globe with their musical entourage in toe, they will be touching down in the last week, we really wish we could be joining D:U:M in Tokyo tomorrow night, brushing shoulders with the cream of the Japanese crop. But, alas, we are stuck in dreary London instead but shall be listening at 10pm, so make sure you do as well.

Wednesday
10-11am Simian Mobile Disco
What’s this you say? A Discobreakfast? Swap your bran flakes for beats and join Messrs Ford and Shaw as they take you on a very special musical journey.

12-2 Bloggers Delight
Casper C and Skull Juice will be heading over to Dalston for a right old knees up.

4-6pm Eat Your Own Ears
EYOE have really built a name for themselves. Bringing you Field Day, Florence and The Machine AND Bloc Party (just to name a few), they’re clearly on a winning streak. Join Tom Baker as he plays a selection of tracks from EYOE artists and live recordings from this and last year’s Field Day festival.

8:00pm – 9:00pm DJ Vadim + Band
A live set from the urban legend that has worked with The Roots and Public Enemy.

Thursday
10:00am – 11:00am Your Vegas (repeat)
No they haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, they’ve just been living in New York for the past couple of years (lucky things). One of the best things to come out of Leeds since er, flat caps and hovis, the band will be heading back to the homeland to tell us just what it is that they’ve been up to.

11:00am – 12:00pm Ryan Brockington & Diane Birch
Music and fashion go hand in hand, everybody knows that. These two fashionistas will shed some light on this very special relationship as they talk about tanks, gloves and glasses.

6:00pm – 8:00pm Vice with Florence & The Machine
She was our video of the week last week, and one of our women of the year. Join the Vice crew to hear some outrageous Viceland stories and a live set from the flame haired fox herself.

12:00pm – 2:00pm The Slits
The Slits are on D:U:M!! If you’ve never heard of this legendary punk quartet, then I really do despair. But you can still learn all about them on their D:U:M show this Friday lunchtime. And having signed a recent record deal, expect some future offerings from these seventies stalwarts.



2:00pm – 4:00pm Crazy P
Having changed their previously phallic namesake for something a little more radio friendly, the disco groovers will be gracing the D:U:M airwaves to give you that Friday feeling….
