We thought we’d do a couple of presenter spotlight’s during the festival, this second one is with Kev Lobotomi who does Shock Treatment on Wednesday’s from 8pm – 10pm. Desert Highways loves listening to this show! Kev is a great supporter of all music, but gives local music a massive push and the support it needs and deserves. We’ve been lucky to have music we’ve released through the label played on his show on numerous occasions.
