The Bear Cave Radio Show is a weekly 2-hour show full of a great variety of music, broadcasting live every Tuesday night from 8-10pm (UK Time) exclusively on The Bear, Southampton’s Alternative Online Radio Station.

Each week you might hear a little Rock, Indie, Brit Pop Country or something in between. Plus there’s also a variety of entertaining features.

Each week we take a hit song, strip the vocals and play it down the phone… can you recognise the Mystery Hold Music?

On the Community Noticeboard, we tell you about the biggest and best things happening in Southampton this week.

Each week we do two Country Double-Plays, where we play two back-to-back Country hits. We do one in each hour of the show.

We also play a few cover tunes, usually alternative versions of songs that feature in that weeks SecondHandSongs Radio Show.
