JW Show 139 Part 1: The England Riots

Aug 10, 2011 by

As to the time of writing, over 2,200 people have been arrested and 700 charged in the madness that was last weekend’s England Riots.  Cities all over England were hit by the madness of riots, looters, vandals, criminality, arson, and death.  Personally, it’s been an extremely frightening time and we are very lucky to have avoided any destruction to our personal property.  Many of which were not so lucky and there are charities popping up all over supporting them.  Recharged Radio’s Facebook page has more information about how you can help if you wish to.


"We Love Enfield, Keep Smiling"

We have a show where we bring up and discuss some of the issues surrounding the riots, and I appeal to any young person who was either involved in the rioting or understands the true reasoning behind the riots to come forward for an interview on the show.  If you are one of these or know someone who may be interested, send an email to justin (at) rechargedradio.com and we’ll get the ball rolling on that.

I have included some pictures (below) that I have taken around Enfield including my favourite picture of the Enfield printing shop that has done the “I (Heart) Enfield, Keep Smiling” posters.  Brilliant stuff, and a good reminder for all of us in these dark days.

We’ll put a few more pictures and a whole second hour’s worth of music and discussion onto the second hour of the show.

See you there,
