I'm Shell Zenner, a vintage dress wearing, cupcake making, vinyl junkie and new music obsessive!  Leicestershire born and bred, but now living and breathing Salford, Manchester and the North West. I get my kicks from obscure instruments, flea markets, festivals, gigs and sharing the best new music around. I've religiously frequented gigs and festivals since I was a teen, some years later and you start to think is this a hobby or is this more? I started off writing gig reviews but quickly realised that my passion was for listening to and sharing new alternative music in audio form. A friend suggested I get involved with my local station Salford City Radio 94.4fm and the rest they say is history!

My radio shows air the best, in my view - pre and new releases and feature interviews with up and coming bands alongside more established artists. A small selection of guests featuring on the show in recent months are – Young British Artists, Groove Armada, Fenech-Soler, Chapel Club, Local Natives, Wild Beasts, Beach House, Kasabian and more..

JUNE: featuring amongst others -The Horrors, Polarsets, Foster The People, The Jezebels, and of course the one everybody is talking about EMA, check out the new hotspot.

May: Our little ray of sunshine, paves the way again this month, with Austra, Dutch Uncles and more. Warpaint and Deep Sea Arcade are on her bands to watch out for list.

April: Our little monthly cupcake Shell Zenner is back with the new hotspot for April and once more reveals her most favourite gig/s of the month. Tells us what she’s listening to and what bands we should watch out for. Remember where you heard it first. Spreading the word about Deerhunter, The Kills, Two Wounded Birds, The Crookes and more.

March: Shell's back this month with her music tips for the month. Checking out new bands such as Frankie & The Heartstrings, Sissy & The Blisters, Trophy Wife and lots more.

February: Check in with Shell to find out what's spinning her world this month and what we should be checking out. Bands include: Esben & The Witch, Ringo Deathstarr, Dutch Uncle, Eagulls and more.

January:Check in with Shell to find out what's spinning her world this month and what we should be checking out. Bands include: Blind Atlas, Run Toto Run, The Boxer Rebellion, Tamaryn, Crocodiles, Patterns, Joy Formidable , Chapel Club and Little Comets

And don't forget to tune in to the shows:

Thursdays at 9pm/Sundays at 5pm on 94.4fm or or listen again on our website. My shows also air on WXLV Radio In Philadelphia, USA twice a week. You can Listen to older shows on my Mixcloud archive:
If that isn't enough I can also be found gracing the pages of Manchester's Chimp Magazine, where I currently offer my views on the latest single releases.
