MDR Breakfast Club (13th May ’20)

James Sims


Melodic Distraction welcomes our morning broadcast during our time of quarantine.

If you’re working from home, chilling at home, or generally just staying at home, our Breakfast Club is here to share a brew with you. Hosted by a rotation of some of the station’s family and friends, 10am-12midday every weekday, our airwaves are full of excellent tunes, local music and questionable patter.

Nestled right after our daily morning show 9-10am, Wake Up with Melodic Distraction, and before Elliot Fergusons’s Red Brick Picnic lunch hour, 12midday – 1pm, we’re filling our now-solitary morning hours with radio family. Chat room crew, assemble!

This time, James Sims, half of Dharma Collective, steps in for 2 hours of latin, jazz, broken beat and boogie.
