The Return of Cool Beans Radio!

What’s up guys? How’s it all going? Long time no see. You look great. Is that a new beard? My oh my it looks fantastic, and is that…yes it is, you have a tiny bird’s nest in your new beard, and the eggs in there are hatching! This is a beauty to behold. What a marvellous treat this is. How delightful.

Now we’ve got that reconciliation out of the way, it’s time to chat about the almighty return of the Cool Beans Radio Show! After many months away (we were working on that TV show we did, oh you haven’t seen it? Why not watch two whole series for free?) we’re now back in the Sheffield Live studio and taking over the airwaves every Monday in between 1PM and 2PM.


Chris Arnold & Mickey Michaels are taking the helm, with new guy Sidekick Sam Summers getting on board to break up the bickering. Every week we’ll have gig tickets to give away, plus special guests, occasional acoustic performances, cracking tunes and a whole bunch of nonsensical jibber jabber.

The first one happened on Monday 21st September and like all the shows it can be found on our Sheffield Live page and featured special guest Nat Lofthus from Sensoria Festival. Her Twitter handle is @The_Internat – how great is that pun! 10 out 10 for punnage there!


If you wanna listen live, whack 93.2FM on the dial if you live in the Sheffield region, or simply hit up the Sheffield Live website if you live anywhere else. That’s right folks – we’re available globally!

Also, we love it when you get in touch, so text in (07920486186), tweet in (@Cool_Beans_Prod), email in (, pigeon mail in (he’s a pigeon called Barry who knocks about Gentings Casino) or whatever your preferred mode of contact is.

The All New Cool Beans Television Show!

Hello all!

Apologies about being so slack on the blog / updating the website front. We’ve been spending literally every second we have making a television show. And we know what you’re thinking, who let these clowns have a television show? Well Sheffield Live TV have!

That’s right, 9:30PM every Saturday on Freeview channel 8, Virgin channel 159 and uploaded to everyone’s favourite up and coming website YouTube swiftly after.

We’re doing 6 episodes in total, each 20 minutes. The first one went out last Saturday the 27th September and can found on the Television page of our website as well as our YouTube. We have 5 more on the way, all of them stooped in sketches, features, guests, performances, gags and in the words of one of our cameramen – general bafflement.

It’s something we were thinking about for some time, releasing an online Cool Beans TV show that is. But since the opportunity to produce something that’s going out over actual television airwaves came up we figured this was too good an opportunity to miss!

All this interest you? Well here’s a little trailer we knocked up….

Still interested? Well what are you waiting for, get watching then!

Hope you guys enjoy the shows and we’ll see you at the end of the month for a 4th birthday / end of series party!

The All New Cool Beans Radio Show!

Greetings people of planet Earth! After spending the last few years jumping from home to home (Forge Radio, BCR, Steel City Radio and Dom Kidson’s sordid bedroom to name a few) The Cool Beans Radio Show has found itself with a brand new weekly slot!

That’s right! Every Tuesday at 11PM on Sheffield Live 93.2FM. Presented by Chris Arnold the show will feature special guests, live sessions, reviews, features, music new & old and top notch chat throughout!

Top notch!

The launch happens tonight (19th August) and we welcome special guests Renegade Brass Band! They’ll be talking beats, brass and maybe even bras? Who knows at this current moment in time.

There will also be Sidekick Jonny and Sidekick Dave reviewing films, Big Bassy providing a weather report and an exclusive interview with Corey from Ham Pocket (who’s now located out in LA!).

And as always a delectable pot of tunes which shall feature instruments playing musical notes and people singing words.

Over the next few months we have special guests in the form of Hot Soles, Smiling Ivy, Mango Rescue Team, KOG & The Zongo Brigade, The Bone Lab and many more.

So plenty to look forward to!
