The Blackout Radio Show with Mike Pougounas started in 2011 on Wicked Spins Radio.
It is a two hour show covering weekly a wide spectre of music genres, playing mostly new releases of underground bands and artists from all over the globe.
Okay, there is a big chance to listen a bit punk rock and post-punk from other genres but if Mike likes something it is aired…
Mainstream artists are avoided and some old music stuff is added to the show to bring back memories spice up things a little.
Interviews are rare but the following guests have been interviewed so far: Alex Daniele (author of the book “The Mission – At War with Gods“), Nick Schultz (of the band Faces of Sarah), Paul Devine (of the band Siiiii), Piers Sixx (of the band Arcane Winter) Rob Layton (of the band Red Sun Revival), The Expelaires, Trevor Bamford (Nightbreed Rec., Nightbreed Radio, Every New Dead Ghost, Midnight Configuration, Arcane Winter, Death Party UK)…
Nowdays, The Blackout Radio Show with Mike Pougounas is aired via four different stations located on three different countries:
The radio station KOWS 92.5FM based at Occidental, California – U.S.A. and the web radio station Wicked Spins Radio (every Thursday at 7PM UK), Mad Wasp Radio (Saturday 6AM – Sunday 11PM – Tuesday 9AM UK) and Fasching Web Radio (Tuseday 12-2PM Canada).
