Soundclash & Friends

Soundclash: The Musical Challenge Show! Brought to you by the team at South Wales ONE. Every week, we pick a new topic - it might be broad, it might be narrow, it might be complicated, a lot of the time it’s downright weird. Whatever we pick, our presenters then play five songs head to head to see which of them has the superior musical taste! It’s a musical chess match, a fencing match stuck in a jukebox, and Russian roulette with a playlist all mixed into one. Expect a lot of banter, quite a bite of cheating, plus an eclectic mix of guests and topics, all set to a great soundtrack. If you’re listening live or shortly after the podcast is released, you can vote for your favourite tracks at Alternatively, if you’re plumbing the depths of our archive, just let us know what you think at @southwalesone or via our website

Another week, another #SoundclashChallenge.  This week it's the turn of the fantastic Kath Giblin from the These 3 Streams festival: And it appears since Lee hasn't been on in 3 weeks he's forgot how to turn the microphones on....Yes listeners, nothing changes!

Chris and Lee are back with Stacey from Stacey's Pop Culture Parlour for another Soundclash Challenge...only since Lee is skiving Rob kindly stepped in to fill those very big shoes. Just a warning, without Lee to maintain order the show quickly went off the rails!  And what a show it is, with 'maths and numbers' being the theme of choice.

Do NOT listen to this episode with children or sensitive adults around, we don't want to be 'cancelled'!  There, we've warned you. Another week, another Soundclash.  With Chris away this week Stacey has kindly returned to fill in...and all hell breaks loose!  This week's theme is 'body parts'. P.S....Seriously, don't listen with the kids.

Six degrees of separation…with music. That is the concept of ‘Smells Like Kevin Bacon’.  We pick 2 songs submitted by listeners randomly at the start of the show.  Lloyd & Lee then have 60 minutes to link them with 6 additional songs in the middle.  Each song must link to the previous song. As we don’t know the song choices until the start of the show, and we’re looking for (sometimes obscure) links.  Literally anything could play on this show…even Mr Blobby! There is no script. No rehearsal and no preparation.  This show is done completely off the cuff.  Tune in each week to see if they succeed. It’s Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon with your favourite music.

Another week, another #SoundclashChallenge.  This week's challenger is...oh wait, due to a miscommunication we got stood up! You'll just have to put up with Chris & Lee with a special guest appearance from Rob.

Soundclash Junior.  That would have been a better title for this episode!  Why didn't we think of that? Chris's twin boys Dan & Will have joined us in the studio for a very special episode of Soundclash and to finally answer the age old question; "Who has the best taste in music, Dan or Will?"  They are only young lads and did a cracking job, as one message into the studio said "The real winners are the listeners".  Please send feedback on this episode directly to so we can share with the boys! (All jokes aside, really, do!  They put a lot of effort into preparing for the show.)

The brief is simple.  You can only listen for the same 5 songs for eternity...what are they and why? This week we welcome Simon Reynolds into the studio to ask that fateful question.  Features songs from Blondie and Pink Floyd among others. Part of The Manic Monday Show, brought to you by South Wales ONE.

Woooooah! We can't call an episode that (We just did)!  This week it's Chris's birthday so things are a little madder than usual.   'Days & Dates' is this week's very loose theme, along with Dicks &...Pussy's?
