Wigan Musicians Your Local Indie Radio Station Online

Promoting Wigan’s Indie talent across the airwaves

Wigan Indie Radio is hosted by Andrew. Playing the best Indie music from the last 3 decades.  Showcasing Wigan’s musical talent, of which there is plenty.  We love to hear from local bands and musicians. If you are a local artist, get in touch, we can play your music and do a review of your latest gig on our blog.


Not to name drop but WIR was the first station in England to play Gerry Cinamon whilst he was an unsigned artist and look where he is now! Andrew has also promoted renowned local bands Merry Hell and The Lathums.  He has also promoted successful solo artists including Jon Brindley, Alex Strickland and Tom Jones. So send us your tracks!
