The perfect complement to a double espresso and a bacon sandwich, The deXter Bentley Hello GoodBye Show has been reviving hung over listeners in London and beyond every Saturday lunchtime between noon and 1.30pm, ever since Resonance 104.4 FM first hit the airwaves back in the Spring of 2002.
Occasional excursions into poetry, drama and sound art aside, the show revolves around the one thing that excites us the most… MUSIC!
Whether your thing is electro-punk, avant-pop or good old free-folk it will be heard on Hello GoodBye, where each week at least 2 acts perform live in session.
If there is a general ethos to the show, it is to champion the unsung heroes of the underground music scene: those marginalised & unclassifiable mavericks who might otherwise find themselves with little or no exposure elsewhere. With a distinct leaning towards people of a DIY disposition, dB are proud to be witnessing a whole host of former guests starting to move onwards and upwards. Having said that, the show is not averse to an occasional appearance by already established musical pioneers, with visits from folk legends Pete & Peggy Seeger (HERE) and the legendary punk goddess Ari-Up (LISTEN) being a particularly memorable cases in point.
With the age of guests ranging from 16 to 86, the show has no door policy or dress code… if you have something to say and are striving for something unique then you will definitely be welcome on The deXter Bentley Hello GoodBye Show.
