DJ Adam Walton’s Pet Sounds [+]

Pet Sounds is the name for Friday nights at Telfords Warehouse in Chester.

I am your host, Adam Walton.

I have been DJ’ing and promoting at Telfords since 1997.

In that time I have brought Coldplay, the Automatic, the Pipettes, Mclusky, Akira the Don, bravecaptain, Radio Luxembourg, 60ft Dolls, Soft-Hearted Scientists and many, many more up to Chester to offer our customers the chance to see some of the most exciting new bands in the UK.

Pet Sounds is an attempt to focus the unique factors that Friday nights in Telfords have offered over the years into something identifiable.

This is our manifesto:

1) The finest live music regardless of genre.
2) An eclectic mix of music without boundaries.
3) Every tune will be a great tune.
4) Open minds will have a great time.
5) Something different every week.
6) If nobody is dancing, but we’re playing an AMAZING song, that’s okay! Great Music is our leader!

PLEASE NOTE I operate a ‘no requests’ music policy on the night. It’s nigh-on-impossible for me to listen to people’s requests when I’m in the middle of a DJ-set. There is only one of me and the next tune always needs finding and cueing up. PLEASE DON’T TAKE OFFENCE! If you have a request, and it’s a good one, leave it as a comment here before 2pm on the Friday afternoon and I will see what I can do for you!

And if you are going to request something make it more interesting than the Stone Roses, the Arctic Monkeys or bloody Razorlight!

My ‘day’ job is as presenter of BBC Radio Wales’ new music show, The Musical Mystery Tour. That show has been running in one shape or another since October 1993. It’s an excellent show because Wales is full of excellent and innovative musicians. Many of the best have played our stage before going on to very much bigger and better things.

Please feel free to get in touch and let me know your thoughts, requests, criticisms, suggestions for bands to play etc via:
