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!

The Love Hour: Murder Ballads

Soundclash 8th October 2010

Our first ever soundclash that, somehow, I later found out that I lost. Proof, as if it were needed, that democracy is a broken system and we need return to the feudal system as soon as possible with me as our glorious emperor.

The Love Hour, August 28th 2020

This week’s Love Hour was probably our most professional show yet (by which I mean we managed to play quite a lot of actual music, be on-topic, and nobody forgot to turn their microphone on). Almost certainly the impact of having a guest producer sorting out our place list, Mr.
