Welcome to Jivebeat Radio

Music and dance-related chat from all sorts of different genres. The Late(ish) Breakfast Show is usually a mix of upbeat tracks from across the worlds of latin, jive, rock and roll, big band, swing, and more, whilst the Midnight Chill shows offer a more laid-back musical selection drawn from the world of neotango, modern blues, jazz, electro, and chill. We also include announcements about anything new that's happening in the dance world or what organisers are doing during the Covid crisis to keep things moving, and we are always happy to play requests or dedications.

Who are we?

Jivebeat Radio began during lockdown as a community resource for the dancers at Tangosynthesis to keep us all connected whilst there was no dancing. Since then it has become surprisingly popular and we are now looking at expanding it to include all sorts of new programmes and content to be broadcast throughout the week.

Our broadcast schedule is at the top of this page, and most of our shows are available on catch-up if you miss them or want to listen again.

If you have any requests or announcements you would like us to make then please email Graham on studio@jivebeat.dance and let him know.


Brought to you by...

Over the course of the last few months, with the Black Lives Matter protests that have swept around the world, it has become increasingly clear that it is no longer enough to be simply “not racist”. If we are to have any hope of seeing racism and discrimination ended in our lifetimes we must instead take a stand and be actively “anti-racist”. How this manifests in a dance organisation is something that we are still working out, but the first step is to move our anti-racism message from an obscure policy in the depths of our website to a prominent position in everything we publish.

When we are all able to meet again in person, come and join us at Tangosynthesis for dancing, music, and some much needed social interaction.
