MDR’s Breakfast Club with George \m/ (25th January ’21)

George \m/

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.

Rolling in right after our daily morning show from 9-10am, Wake Up with Melodic Distraction, we’re filling our now-solitary morning hours with the radio family you know and love. Chat room crew, assemble!

George \m/ returns this month with a Burns Night special – two hours of Scottish anthems, poetry and pop enclosed.
