1/7/2019
More
1st show of the new year... a look backwards to some more heat from 2018. Music was picked by us and some other folks that were kind enough to get in touch. This week it's a bit more hip hop and jazz heavy.

#140 Christmas Special (23rd December 2018)

12/24/2018
More
Last year we didn't manage it so this year we've pulled out all the stops for a TNT Christmas spectacular. 120 minutes of songs with a festive lilt. Soundtrack the eating of sprouts with annoying family members with our festive picks.

Duration:01:55:20

#139 Top of the Pops! (16th December 2018)

12/17/2018
More
We often get told "the stuff you play is weird, play some normal music". Well, your prayers have been answered! This week we're playing nothin' but songs that have made it onto the UK Top 40.

Duration:01:59:33

#138 Long Songs (2nd December 2018)

12/3/2018
More
Another week, another theme! This time it's a welcome return to long songs. The benchmark for "Long" was anything over 9 minutes. Despite the restrictions, we still managed to get a good deal of variety in there, as well as 2 listener requests!

Duration:01:57:55

#137 (25th November 2018)

11/26/2018
More
Back after a week off, you'd expect us to be pumped and ready to go... sadly lack of match fitness came shining though quickly. Fear not, we pressed on and managed to pull the show back from the brink to deliver to the standard you know & love from TNT.

Black Gold #14 - Global Sounds (17th October 2018)§§

#136 with Georgia Soul guest mix (11th November 2018)

11/12/2018
More
Show #136 comes with an excellent guest mix by the brains behind the (sadly now defunct) Georgia Soul Recordings, Agent45. The rest of the show has a blend of old & new, some beats & some swirls. Tales from the weekend and a confrontational presenter.

#135 3rd Birthday Night & Train Songs (4th November 2018)

11/5/2018
More
3 years?!? Where does the time go? This year we've mixed it up a bit and it's an hour of "Night" songs followed by an hour of "Train" songs. Sometimes we amaze ourselves with our ideas!

#134 Twin Spins (28th October 2018)

10/30/2018
More
Fans of the show will know how much we love a themed edition! Great news, here is one of those shows. 120(ish) minutes of some of the best twin-spins on record. The holy grail of the DJ that spins vinyl as it'll mean no wasted weight in the bag.

Duration:01:57:51

#133 (21st October 2018)

10/22/2018
More
It's too early to write something witty and appealing about last night's show. It's good. There's promo stuff, a birthday cut, tales from the weekend, electric jug, arpeggio synths and more!

Duration:01:56:19

#132 with Mr Meerkat guest mix (14th October 2018)

10/15/2018
More
This week's mix co is from Dubcentral's Mr Meerkat. Those of you from The Steel City won't need to be told about his legendary selections on the decks. He's played all over the world and many-a-dance so we're super excited to have a mix from him!

Black Gold Psychedelic Special (4th April 2018)

10/8/2018

Duration:01:47:41

#131 (30th September 2018)

10/1/2018
More
The seasons change but The Night Train rolls onward. This week is another exciting instalment... featuring new music we've purchased, music we'd forgotten we'd had, music we've heard on other Sheffield Live shows and a riddim mix!

Duration:01:58:54

#130 UNKLE Psyence Fiction Anniversary (23rd September 2018)

9/24/2018
More
August 1998, UNKLE released Psyence Fiction. It saw James Lavelle hustle different artists into working with DJ Shadow. On the CD, there's a hidden intro track, a kinda mini-mix of artists and tracks that influenced the band. We've made that into a show.

#127 (2nd Sept 2018)

9/7/2018
More
With the two of us back in the studio, it's business as usual. Hitting the mic, strange mixes and daft stories! There's some new stuff, some old stuff, some stuff in another language and the debut of a new feature.

8/26/2018
More
It maybe a little late, but here is my tribute show to the anniversary of the birth of hip-hop (11th August 1973). First hour contains twelve classic Kool Herc records that most likely would have been played out on that now seminal night.
