About

Started in December 2004,  DarkCompass, curated and hosted by Ro, is a collection of music podcasts, all about the independent, underground, and unheard. DarkCompass is also considered one of the longest-running UK Podcasts.

Originally a social comment site with music, it has evolved into a long-running music podcast showcasing a lot of new and unsigned bands, giving a link to fans and bands around the world.

Joined Hard Rock Hell Radio in 2018, Ro produces Hard Rock and Metal Shows for the station, which is broadcast at 12 noon UK Time every Friday. He is also involved in curating music for the station.

Ro also produces an eclectic mix of shows (featuring indie, Alt Rock, Electronica, EBM, and more) for SFW Radio too, which are broadcast on the station at 9 pm UK Time Each Monday.
