Formed in the depths of lockdown, South Wales ONE (formerly known as ACJ Radio) is a community radio station for South Wales broadcasting online to the world. We have an eclectic mix of presenters and shows broadcasting most evenings and an ad-free music stream running through the day playing the best in 80s, 90s, and 00s music.

You can hear me live on South Wales ONE most Thursday from 9 until 10 presenting The Soundclash Show with Lee Jones. Every week we choose a theme for the show and pick five songs each that fit the theme as closely as possible (we are not always successful!). We play our songs head to head and ask our listeners to vote on which songs they like the most!

It’s a winner takes all musical battle royal with no prizes except bragging rights for the following week!

After the controversial and outrageous Motown Week, we kept it simple and just went for songs with lady’s names in the title. What could go wrong? Well, it turns out that we couldn’t even manage to pick twelve different lady’s names without shenanigans. A played a little track called “Doctor

Soundclash #18: Earth Wind and Fire

Also known as “The Week I Introduced Lee to The Lounge Kittens”. Lee really couldn’t cope with the vocal and musical stylings of the girls and still, some weeks later, hasn’t quite recovered. Sadly, The Kittens are no more but they’ve very kindly put their last gig up on YouTube

After losing two weeks on the bounce, I needed to find a safe haven and retreated to my musical high ground – Motown.
