28/05/16 – No live shows on a Saturday. Want to change that?


We are currently looking for new volunteers to host shows. We are open to all sorts of ideas for shows, from rock, punk, drum and bass, electro-swing or funk, through to jazz, classical or full on techno. Or why not just host a show talking about your favourite hobby, whether it be gardening, spotting trains or going to watch your favourite sports team.

All you need is enthusiasm, a passion for your chosen theme, and an ability to get to Penywaun to do your show. Training will be provided, but it aint that difficult (honestly)

To find out more and discuss your ideas, contact studio@dapperfm.co.uk

24/05/16 – Peppermint Iguana pays tribute to Steve Will

8pm till just after 10pm – Peppermint Iguana show

Steve – at home on the dancefloor in the middle of the night, or just out walking the dog

On 24th May, Peppermint Iguana pays tribute to Steve Williams, who sadly went on to the great dancefloor in the sky recently.

Steve touched many of the Iguana Tribe in many ways. He was an uncle, a friend, a mentor and – in some ways – a role model.

Well known on the Northern Soul All-nighter scene, on the terraces of Cardiff City and loved by all who knew him, Steve was an avid music lover that taught us all a few things in his time. Never sticking to what he knew, Steve was always one for checking out new sounds.

This show will pay tribute to Steve by playing some of the music he loved and some of the music we love that reminds us of him. Expect Northern Soul and Ska. But also expect punk and a few other little surprises.

We will also feature a few new hot releases – cos that is what Steve would have wanted – for us to keep on keeping on.

    Wales fans waiting for plane home from Krakow – after watching Wales lose to Poland (yes, the game was in Warsaw, don’t ask!)

    With Wales’ first major football tournament since 1958 looming, on 22nd May 2016 Peppermint Iguana dips its toes into new territory. We will be presenting a strictly spoken word show, featuring special guests Paul Corkery and Neil Dymock, of the Football Supporters Federation Cymru.

    We will be talking about the arrangements for fans heading to France for the tournament and looking back at some memorable moments from past away trips.

    Paul Corkery has already been out to check out the stadiums and the arrangements for the games in France, so is perfectly placed to tell us all we need to know. Expect all the information you will need about the grounds, fanzones and security.

    Neil Dymock will also be joinging us in the studio. Neil clocked 18 years worth of aways without missing a game, is a gol trustee, editor of Dragon Has Landed fanzine and been manager of the supporters team for 13 years

    We will also be looking back at previous trips away following the ‘sleeping dragon’, reminding Corky of things he wants to forget and straighten him out when he strays from the truth.

    You can listen live on Sunday 22nd May from 5pm to 7pm GMT. Feel free to leave questions on our Facebook event page for the gang.

    If we do not end up incriminating ourselves on the show, we will then make it available as a downloadable podcast for you to listen to at your own inconvenience.

    The show will be broadcast live on www.dapperfm.co.uk and you can listen anywhere in the world that has an internet connection
