LISTEN AGAIN: Peppermint Iguana Radio # 127

john and don

There were two themes running through show 127

As we rapidly approach five years of being on air, Ginger (almost) Gone has decided to hang up his headphones. Show 128, our fifth birthday, will be his last show. So for the last two shows he will be revisiting some of his favourite tunes that he has spun in the last half decade, including PAIN, Dr Alimontado and Ty karim.

He also paid tribute to ska legend Prince Buster who went to the great dancehall in the sky on 8th September.

Clint is not going anywhere though and will continue to bring you the best of the underground. This week his play was heavily loaded with bands playing the last festival of the season, Something Else in the Dean, which takes place in the forest of dean over 23/24/25 September.

He also paid tribute to Graham Wiggins, AKA Dr Didg, who sadly passed away in his sleep on 7th September

DR DIDG goes to the great gig in the sky

Here are Iguana HQ we were recently saddened to hear of the passing of Graham Wiggins, AKA, Dr Didg.

The following statement appeared on Dr Didg’s social media last week

It’s with a heavy heart and sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our dear friend and amazing musician Graham Wiggins (a.k.a. “Dr Didg”) on September 7th. We have no details at this time other than he passed in his sleep. This is quite a shock to us, assuming that we were going to remain in touch for a very long time.

We’ve had nothing but amazing times and learned a lot through our travels with Graham. He was one of the most well-informed and classiest persons you could know. It would be safe to say that Graham not only had a huge brain (he was a legitimate scientist who had a PH.D. in Physics and later developed RF technologies for Biomedical imaging) but he also had a huge heart.

The man was extremely sincere and giving to others at all times. He loved with his music and shared it with the world.

If you have Dr. Didg in your music collection, go ahead and put it on nice and loud. You will hear nothing but the sound of a brilliant beautiful man who made really cool music. Rest in Peace brother. We love you and will always keep you close to our hearts. For those who knew him know this is a painful loss. On the other hand, heaven’s all star band just received its finest didgeridoo player

The Atrist Formerly Known as Ginger John to step down from Peppermint Iguana Radio Show

Ginger John - does not even know what the radio website is called
Ginger John – after five years he still does not even know what the radio show website is called

The Artist Formerly Known as Ginger John has today announced that he is stepping down from his position of back bench internet radio DJ. His final show will be broadcast live on 27th September 2016, almost five years to the day since the airing of the first ever Peppermint Iguana Radio show.

David Cameron thought he was being clever by distracting the nation from the debate about grammar schools by announcing his retirement (we thought he fucked off weeks ago!). But his announcement was itself trumped by former grammar school boy Silver John announcing his own retirement.
