It's been a while since we have been able to host our spin on "Desert Island Discs" at our spiritual home at The Ruin in Digbeth. We haven't gone away, just been in hibernation until a time we can return when it is safe for, you the staff and us. Hopefully, all being well, that will be Saturday 24th July, so save the date and watch this space...

In the meantime, this Easter Sunday The Isolation Station is hosting an online special. We are running the day as we would at the Ruin with an "album of the day" to kick things off, with me and Chris to follow laying down some laid back afternoon sounds before the main event itself. What a selection of "castaways" we have sharing thier 8 Desert Island Discs. We have, in no particular order, Justin Roberston, Paul Hughes, Jon Pleased Wimmin, Mark Davis, Bill Brewster and James Atkin. WOW! Then to finish, me and Chris have put together a special alternative 80's mix to keep the party flowing into the night! Be sure to join in the fun, you can find further information here...facebook.com/events/468403787537371

In the meantime, this mix is what it says on the tin, "A Celebration, Tribute and Thanks to Friends of Desert Island Discs". Its peppered with tracks that our past castaways have shared with us over the last few years, together with cuts that we play on the day that make the event what it is.

So, grab a beer(s), bottle of wine, or whatever you want, kick back and hit play...
