6 years ago today, Jason McGuire aka Mucka Jay started up Total Biker FM with a vision to unearth the best underground music on the planet. With just 2 other DJ’s the station was born and quickly became a hit. Discovering bands that have since gone on to major tours and played with some of the biggest names in the music industry the station definitely did what was set out.
Forward to 2012 and a point where the name was changed to TBFM Online. There was some jealousy in the music industry as other radio stations attempted to sabotage the station with threats and legal papers, all of which didn’t deter Mucka Jay but made him more determined to push on more with the station.
Its now 2015 and the station has grown so much there is now over 100 staff working for TBFM. There is still the bitterness out there and snipes and jibes at the station but that goes with the territory of being the UK’s number one internet radio station for unsigned and independent music.
Today as TBFM celebrates being 6 years old, we have the traditional 12 hour DJ relay party where a different DJ goes on air each hour and highlights some of their favourite songs from over the years.
TBFM is a non profit company and prides itself on not ripping off bands. TBFM is about helping the bands, discovering the bands and highlighting the bands. TBFM is THE BEST FOR MUSIC.
