"Let the nerds take over !"
Taking in a world-wide view from a local perspective
Bucky and Doctor Flay disassemble then kick around the weeks technology, science, IT and security news, including any related Law and Politics stories.
Both presenters have a background in electrical and mechanical engineering, and use “bar-room philosophy” to kick the stories into context for both the tech-novice and IT-nerds.
Bucky is the energy and engineering nerd with many years of experience in renewable energy, and Doc is the IT and security nerd with many years of working in various IT sectors.
Both are keen custom content creators for the gaming world, though mostly for the Unreal engine games.
Musicaly the show is very loose, playing anything from Mongolian throat music and electro dance-floor fillers, to fine classical and old hardware being misused. The songs are often chosen to underscore or illustrate the topic of discussion.
Requests for music can be submitted before or during the show, and the Doc will usually hunt for a cover, remix or mashup.
Bucky brings his love of classical music, jazz, rock and bad puns, but these days has become a metal-mad-monster.
Doctor Flay brings his entire digital music collection, all 200+ GB of random folk, blues, classical, rock, metal, mashups, and remixes, including the archive of his defunct record label “Fishy Business”.
The listeners contribute live with their own words of wisdom or abuse via the voice of the cranky robot connected to the network.
Show notes are also posted on the facebook group page

I don't know how I found you, but I'm so happy I did. I listen to 96.1 online constantly. Love the variety of music and all the presenters. I'm in Eureka California and have been able to visit Cornwall once. I left my heart there and want desparately to return. Until then, at least I can listen in. Cheers!Susan
