I was a late starter when it comes to Drag Radio. I’d seen stuff floating around Facebook from people on my friends list, even some very close friends had adopted it and given it some great reviews, but like a lot of stuff floating around on Facebook, I didn’t pay much attention to the hype that was building around this weekly show. Eventually though one dreary day whilst sitting on Facebook. I saw a friend mention Drag Radio again and I decided to tune in and find out what it was all about. That was six weeks ago now and ever since I’ve been a dedicated listener. I REALLY like the Drag Radio Show and so will you.
Drag radio is presented by the hilarious duo Presley and D’lear. You could almost call them a twisted Reeves and Mortimer. The double act came together via their band Rock/Electro outfit ‘Kik’ and have been close friends ever since. They pair have great chemistry and bounce of each other with gags and sheer ridiculousness.
Although classed as an Electro show, the boys play a selection of great music. On Wednesdays show for instance they played everything from Rammsteins ‘Du Hast (with english lyrics)’, Nine Inch Nails cover version of U2’s ‘Zoo station’, ‘Bad Things’ the theme tune from True Blood and the boys favourite William Shatner….
The thing about Drag Radio though, the music is actually secondary entertainment wise, its the boys that make the show, them and of course their special ‘guests’, such as the king himself Elvis Presley and gender bending alien Camp David. All this and excerpt’s from Bubbles (Michael Jacksons Chimp) diary. All of these characters are impersonated poorly! But its these things and the dynamic of the presenters that is making Drag Radio slowly achieve cult status.
The show hits the spot in so many ways and Wednesdays one was one of the best yet, I was literally in fits of laughter as Presley and D’lear assaulted us with gag after gag. This is tongue in cheek banter at its very best. Their dialogue often reminding me of those mad alcohol fuelled conversations that you and your mates have at 5am in the morning after a night on the tiles.
Its hard for me to write a balanced review of Drag radio as I’ve become quite a fan of the show. I’d defiantly give it a listen and see what you think. I personally think you’ll love it and become as hooked on it as I am.
The DRAG Radio Show goes out live every Wednesday night from 9pm on-line and on 102.4 FM. You can find it at www.facebook.com/DRAGRADIO
