Dig this! New Music Saturday with Dr. Bones and Mike Five brings you brand new tracks by independent bands, interviews, reviews, random music chat, and usually some poorly thought out phrasing along the way.

Broadcast live in 2 parts every Saturday night and then uploaded everywhere on catch up. This is a podcast for music lovers everywhere.


Join us right here every Saturday night from around 9pm UK / 4pm EST for the live broadcast!!

Please note that mobile users may need to download the RiversideFM app (it's free) to watch / listen to the show.


Can't see / hear the show? Well if it's a Saturday night there's a good chance we aren't live yet (we're always late), check Twitter for updates. If we ARE live and you still can't see us it might be a problem with the connection to our website, instead try clicking HERE to go to the studio directly.



Every week after the live broadcast we upload both parts of the show to a variety of podcast apps including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Podbean, and more. Search 'New Music Saturday' on your favourite podcast app to find us, or just click the catch up image below for all the links!
