Show Profiles – Indie Dependent



Indie Dependent is an indie music focused show, presented by Edd Shanks, Jim Hoey and Kate Blush on NE1fm 102.5 every Friday from 4 til 6PM.

A two-hour selection of purely indie music, Indie Dependent features the best new music in the genre as well as treasured favourites and cameos from the best of the North East music scene.

Each show sees a showcase of the most notable singles and albums released that week as well as a look forward to the upcoming releases in the genre.

Listeners can also expect to be kept up to date with news of prominent gigs in the Newcastle and Gateshead area as well as locally run events that may be of interest.

The team enjoy listener interaction, with requests and shoutouts always welcome from listeners across the area.

The quick wit and humour of Edward, Jim and Kate is another driving point of the show, making it an entertaining listen for both music and talk.

The show was broadcast for the first time in May 2011 by Edd and James Noton, with Jim and Nikki joining the broadcast team in 2012 in James’ absence. In 2016, Jim and new presenter Kate Blush joined Edd to present the programme.
