9. Strongarm Sessions
The Strongarm Sessions has become something of an electronic institution during the five-years since its inception. Hosted from day one by DJ/Producer, Elite Force, the show started out as one of a small DIY cluster of shows on Nubreaks.com, graduating to a weekly throwdown on Breaks FM, and for the past two years has become one of the highest rated shows on Proton Radio. A new show is broadcast roughly once a fortnight (2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 2pm UK time), with the archives appearing the following day on the Strongarm Sessons website. These shows are available as MP3 downloads after they've been aired as either podcasts, and RSS feeds, or best of all TORRENTS.
