DJ Name: 50s Tash
Show name: Authentic RnR Show
Location: UK (England)
UK Time Slots: Saturday 11am - Thursday 5pm - Sunday 4pm
50s Tash has been into Rockin’ music since the early 70s. She grew up on the scene and took influence from the DJs that were around back then, mainly 50s Flash. 50s Flash was a very close friend to Tasha, when he became ill Tasha left her job to care for him. He eventually ended up in a care home, so Tasha and her husband started a Rockin’ club next door to the care home so he could still enjoy the music. As well as being such a kind and compassionate person, 50s Tash is also a phenomenal DJ and we are so glad to have her in our Rockabilly Radio family.

UK Time Slots: Tuesday 4am - Saturday 3pm
Adam was born in a small town in the province of Alicante, Elda. The town has been made world famous for its shoes.
Thanks for Adam’s parents being Rockers since the mid 80s, he has always been around Rock n Roll and Rockabilly from birth. Adams parents took him to festivals and concerts since he was a child but he only started to take a deeper interest at around 12 years old.
Adam shortly after decided to start DJing later and that year after building a sizable record collection, he discovered a bar by the name of “Rockabilly”, to Adams amusement, the owner didn’t even know what Rockabilly was, he told Adam “I just liked the name”. Soon after, Adam was asked to DJ that same bar.
His first DJ engagement was in November 2014 when he was only 13 years old, he has not stopped since then and hes DJ’d many massive festivals across Europe. His sets include mostly Rockabilly and all its related genres such as R&B, Hillbilly, Instrumental Rock n Roll etc! He
Adams intention when he first started DJing has stayed with him to this day, to share his vision and passion of Rock ‘n Roll to as many people

He also organizes club nights and gigs in Athens as well as a small but loud Greek rockabilly meeting called Rhythm Bay. We are proud to say he has been a DJ on Rockabilly Radio for the last 8 years.

DJ Name: bacpac
Show name: Rockabilly Wordwide Mashup
UK Time Slots: Tuesday 1pm - Saturday 1am
‘bacpac’ has had a long career in radio that started with guitar lessons at 4 years old.
bacpac credits being a musician as the most significant reason she produces radio today.
Originally from New York City, some people knew her as an aerosol artist, painting on music videos. Jeremie Franko had always felt a connection to the United Kingdom through her grandmother who was born in Liverpool. Many of bacpac’s relatives lived in the East End of London after WW2. She moved to London where she was going to school in London for architectural design and became the guitarist for early punk feminist band, The Raincoats. She lived in London for several years where she took Sound Recording classes at a London studio. Back in the States, bacpac pursued her architectural career simultaneously as an aerosol artist and eventually worked as a scenic artist on hundreds of movies and music videos. In New York City, bacpac took her recording skills and worked as an audio engineer for WBAI/FM for almost 10 years. A move to Arizona introduced bacpac to swing dance and rockabilly. Radio Phoenix was looking for an audio engineer and she signed on, eventually producing Rockabilly Worldwide Mashup for Radio Phoenix. She was listening to Rockabilly Radio and met Crazy Kat Daddy (R.I.P. former Rockabilly Radio DJ Neil Breaks) who introduced her to Rockabilly Radio. bacpac says it is because of her musical background that her show explores the roots of rockabilly through vintage swing and blues. bacpac is still an active musician in a swing band as well as a punk rock band. She is a full-time mural artist.
