Half Man Half Biscuit

Birkenhead's finest, Half Man Half Biscuit play a special gig to celebrate 30 years of BBC Radio Merseyside's PMS programme.

Birkenhead's Half Man Half Biscuit have recorded a special concert to celebrate 30 years of BBC Radio Merseyside's PMS programme.

The band made a rare live appearance in Liverpool at BBC Radio Merseyside's performance space to record in front of a specially invited audience.

PMS, originally called Rockaround, began broadcasting on Radio Merseyside 30 years ago then presented by Phil Ross.

Current presenter Roger Hill took over the programme five years later and has been with the show ever since.

PMS, the longest running alternative music programme on local radio, is broadcast Sunday at midnight on 95.8FM.

Half Man Half Biscuit played for over an hour for the programme which was broadcast at midnight on Sunday, 23 September.

The group recorded 12 sessions for John Peel on Radio 1 and famously turned down the opportunity to appear on Channel Four's The Tube because they wanted to watch Tranmere Rovers play that evening.

Roger Hill, originally from Leicester, came to Liverpool in 1978 and spent a large amount of time in the legendary Eric's club.

He went on to produce the Merseysound fanzine that was instrumental in the Larks in the Parks concerts.

The PMS programme will be available through the Listen Again facility for seven days after broadcast.
