Discover your new favourite band with Dr. Bones and Mike Five on New Music Saturday...


Featuring brand new tracks by independent bands, interviews, reviews, random music chat, and usually some poorly thought out phrasing - this is a show for music lovers everywhere.


Broadcast live every Saturday from Canada and the UK from 5pm EST / 10pm UK (ish!) and then available on all the usual podcast apps afterwards, we promote bands we love worldwide.


Tune in to the show once described as “The most genuine and supportive radio show in the known universe!”



REFRESH this page every Saturday at around 5pm EST / 10pm UK to update the player below and tune into the live show. We usually take a short break between Parts 1 and 2 every week so we always recommend checking Twitter for updates to the start times.
