"The Riot FM Vault"


This is the basement storage area for past Richard Bachman Shows.

The Richard Bachman Show is broadcast each Friday at 5pm and repeated on Tuesdays at 12noon. Guests join host Rohan Brown on the couch in the Riot FM Staff Lounge to play and discuss recent releases. They then decide whether that song should be included in the Riot FM playlist.

You can Play past episodes of the Richard Bachman Show by left clicking on the link or Download the .mp3 by right clicking and "Save Target As".
