THE WASTELANDS (HC PUNK/METAL ON CRANIUM RADIO)


About The Wastelands

The Wastelands is a concept themed radio show/story on Cranium Radio, and is set in the far future among the dystopian wastelands. Simply put, another time and place. The protagonist, The Waste Wanderer, travels throughout the barren landscape bringing tales of punk, metal, and underground hip hop music to those he encounters. The show is mixed with humour and a regular radio show format featuring shouts, on airs, and punk and metal music. Characters such as The Great Sweaty, Captain Midnight Mosh, and Will Van Golf are known to appear when required. Sometimes, underground hip hop is mixed into each episode, if it has a hc flow or fits the atmosphere. 

Every Saturday on Cranium Radio from 4pm-7pm EST (US)/9pm-12am UK.

THE HISTORY & EVOLUTION BEHIND THE WASTELANDS

The show ran on Brutal Existence Radio (2008-2016), and since the closure of the station it became a DIY show before joining Cranium Radio. The Wastelands had many former names and themes, but all of them shared the love for hc punk.

One of the former names included Stressed Out, which was a comedy based show revolving around loosening stress levels after a busy week.

The Wastelands is the title I finally decided upon, and fits the setting and world of the theme. It relates to my interests in sci-fi, video games, comics, and inspired the conceptual basis for the story/radio show.

What does The Waste Wanderer play?

Punk/HC Genres: Crust, DBeat, Crossover, Grindcore, PV, HC, Metallic HC, NYHC, Underground Punk (no pop punk).
