Following Ujima Radio’s re-launch in September, the award-winning community station is set to see the return of The South West Chart show with new presenters. The specialist music show will return to the airwaves on Friday the 26th of November from 6-8 pm. With nightlife back in full swing, The Chart Show sets the scene for Friday nights out in Bristol.
Hosted by Daboothe, Maxx and Dawn, this new wave of the Chart Show will be an asset to local talent within the city of Bristol and surrounding areas. Ujima Radio’s Chart Show is the only independent chart show in the South West of England that honours emerging underground talent.
Daboothe, Maxx and Dawn invite underground musicians in the South West to submit their music for radio airplay, with some healthy competition thrown into the mix. At the start of each month, the presenters will play a fresh selection of local music while encouraging listeners to vote for their favourites online. Votes are counted and the top ten selections will be announced the following weeks, with the top three winners announced in the final week of the month.
The Chart Show is one of Ujima Radio’s flagship shows. Previous rounds of the Chart Show have been hosted by Bristol’s Got Talent’s Nia Davis, Channel 4’s Stacey Olika and Wednesday Cruising Show Daboothe.
Last year’s relaunch of the Chart Show received a staggering 10,000 votes on the website between the months of September to November. Lauding a variety of singers, rappers and producers, the show will focus mostly on Rap, R&B and Pop music. 2020 saw a plethora of local talents such as Suchy, Lady Nade, K*Ners, Kavzad, Delocx, KDogg, and more.
Young rapper KDogg had his radio debut on the Chart Show. His first single “Soon I’ll Be Just Fine” reached number 2 in March 2020. “I’m glad that the chart show is back! It brought a togetherness in the South West music scene and I’ve personally been waiting to submit my music again and see well it does” – Kdogg
