Moshpit Mayhem was founded in the 1990’s by the late Eddie Pickett and lived through a number of incarnations before finding a home on Radio Northumberland around 2010. Eddie led the show through thick and thin, gradually acquiring a number of contributors who helped ensure the show played a diverse mix of rock & metal from across the decades and genres: Rod, Kath, Simon, Bernie, Zach & Ian; as well as picking up a guest presenter in the form of Rich (unfathomably known as Doctor Manspread). During Covid, the show moved into a live recording format, with all the contributors appearing on the show via zoom, with Eddie acting as ringmaster and curator of the chaos. Once lockdown eased, the Live format eventually morphed into the now legendary Moshpit Mayhem Outside Broadcast shows, recorded at festivals up and down the country, featuring carnage and comedy in equal measure. Sadly, Eddie passed away in August 2022, but the show lives on; with Rich picking up the torch and taking over presenter duties full time; ably supported by the rest of the shows contributors who keep him on the straight and narrow. Eddie may be gone; but the show must go on, and the Moshpit Mayhem continues.
