Joyce – who has presented at regularly on BBC6 Music as well as a regular show on New York station EVR says: “Everybody has got two-hour slots. There are no playlists, and its genre-less. They choose their own material, which includes interviews, features, reviews and sessions. Judging by the feedback we’ve had it’s what people have been wanting for some time.”
Beatwolf has already featured live sessions by Alt-J and Zulu Winter, and promises some great surprise guests and sessions to come.
