Erin Bardwell Collective played a live radio session on the Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music show on 22nd April 2008. Three tunes were performed - Slaving For Bread, Spray It & Burn It, and Guns, Bombs & Madness, and an interview with Erin took place. Slaving For Bread and Guns, Bombs & Madness were repeated on Tom Robinsons 'Introducing' show in June 2008. Studio recordings of all three tracks can be found within the back catalogue.
Airplay on BBC 6 Music started for the band back in 2006 when Phill Jupitus played the Copenhagen track from their Volume 2 CD on his breakfast show. More airplay followed in 2008 on 6 Music with Tom Robinson playing the Fry Up single and Gideon Coe playing the Evaporator track from their Volume 3 album. Steve Lamacq then picked up on the band in 2011 by playing the Moody Man single on Radio 6 & his Radio 2 show. In 2012 he continued his support for the group by playing selected tracks from the Bringing The Hope album (the tunes Time On Our Side & The Doctor Said)
The current album OUR TIME and previous BRINGING THE HOPE have gained airplay on regional stations such as BBC WILTSHIRE, the Dublin Near FM Ska Patrol Show and Swindon 105.5 fm (DJ ANDY V Random Reggae Show) plus Wolfman Radio. And many others...........
