We didn’t have any guests with us this week so instead did a bit of a taster session for what was to come on the second day of the Warrington Music Festival which had 22 live local bands playing throughout the day.

[WAM] Exposure Week 1 – Launch

Welcome to the all new, [WAM] Exposure!

Since WArrington Music Scenes advocate extraordinaire Lee Harman swooped in the last couple of weeks to keep the show alive while I was away we have decided to work together to bring you [WAM] Exposure.

Same format just more great content and now part of a brilliant team.
This week me and Lee kicked things off with a small celebration of local music.

Wire Exposure Week 7 wt/ Filthy Tricks

I’m Mike Massey but once again WArrington Music Scenes advocate extraordinaire Lee Harman swooped in this week to keep the show alive while I was away.

Lee again brought you some great tracks, the weekend gig guide but more importantly he brought you a brilliant interview and live performance by Liam and Gerard of Filthy Tricks ahead of their Debut single Launch at Livebar for Black Diamond Eyes.

Wire Exposure Week 6 wt/ Dean Fairhurst

This week I was still sampling the delights of the Hotel NHS so keeping the seat warm and your local music needs catered for was Lee Harman from WArrington Music.

Lee brought you some great tracks, your weekend gig guide and a brilliant interview with Dean Fairhurst giving us an insight into the sad news about Slydigs and what lies ahead on his new journey as Standin Man.

So turn it up, relax and enjoy Wire Exposure Week 6 with Lee Harman – Mike.

Wire Exposure Week 5 wt/ The Zangwills

I’m Mike Massey and this week we were lucky to have all 4 of The brilliant Zangwills in the studio with us. I have to be honest it was a bit of a squeeze but that didn’t put them off their stride. We got a good hour with them and squeezed in 4 great tracks.

It’s a bit unfair to show any bias when doing this show but I’ve loved everything the boys have done to date, I think their music is incredible and Jake’s voice is a gift.

Have a listen for yourself and I hope you enjoy Week 5 with The Zangwills.

Wire Exposure Week 4 wt/ The Winachi Tribe

This week was pretty special as we were lucky enough to have Liam and Anthony from The Winachi Tribe on the show, telling us all about their EPIC 2018, their fashionable start to 2019 and of course their upcoming homecoming gig closing the [WAM] Festival.

Don’t forget you can listen to us live every Saturday at 5pm on Radio Warrington 1332am, online or on the smartphone app.

Wire Exposure Week 3 wt/ La Scala

Welcome to Wire Exposure Week 3, hopefully you know the script by now but just in case you’re new to us, I’m Mike Massey and Wire Exposure is a local music show on Radio Warrington focusing each week on artists from Warrington and surrounding areas.

This week we were lucky to be joined by Nathan and Kurt from La Scala and we spent a good hour finding out all about the birth of the band, what makes them tick, what’s lie’s ahead and they spoilt us with an acoustic set.

Wire Exposure Week 2 wt/ Olly Thornton & The Shirts

Hello and welcome to the Wire Exposure podcast Week 2 !

This week we were joined in the studio by Olly and Loz from Olly Thornton and The Shirts where we spent a good hour putting the world to rights. We got carried away chatting about Gigs, Kerry Catona, Shirts, Ian Brown and Sharts … but don’t worry we did also squeeze in some live music too.

As usual I’ve taken out the gig guides and final scores as these are all in the past and we are all about the future

So welcome to Wire Exposure Week 2 featuring Olly Thornton & The Shirts.

Wire Exposure Week 1 wt/ The Bid

Hello and welcome to the Wire Exposure podcast

I’m Mike Massey and every Saturday at 5pm I host a music show on radio warrington which is called … yes you’ve guessed it .. Wire Exposure. Radio warrington is on 1332am, you can find us online or you can even download the app.

Every week we bring you local music from warrington and the surrounding areas along with news, gig guides, live performances and interviews.

So this is week 1 of the new format and every week we will be creating a podcast so you can listen back in case you missed the show.

Our guests in the studio this week were the brilliant Joe and Lindsay Hatton from The Bid and it truly was a pleasure as they are such such lovely guys.

This was the first week and it wasn’t short of it’s technical hiccups.. levels, speed when playing their new single etc. so I do apologise to Joe and Lindsay but I see it as a good opportunity to have you guys back in soon and lets do it all over again.

I’ve removed the gig guide as these have already happened and the football results just in case you still haven’t watched match of the day, everything else is pretty much as it happened on the show so sit back, grab a cup of tea (or your tipple of choice) and join myself, James, Joe and Lindsay for Week 1 of Wire Exposure featuring The Bid.


Whilst we migrate all the socials and site to the new site, head here to listen to all previous shows which include featured artists such as The Winachi Tribe, The Bid and Filthy Tricks.
