MDR Breakfast Club with James Sims (19th August ’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!

James Sims is back on breakfast duty with more smooth sounds from across the globe, featuring some of his own personal ‘Top 100 Songs of All Time’!
