Riko Dan's Verbal Volley is Back and Now it's a TV Show Too

Verbal Volley, the cult football radio show created by legendary grime MC Riko Dan on London’s NTS, returns this weekend to mark the European Championships – and it’s bigger and better than ever. Co-hosts Discarda and DJ Karnage will join Riko for a full programme of Euro 2016 broadcasts in an all-new live TV show format, video streamed for the first time from the brand new NTS studios in Dalston.

“Definitely a brilliant idea” – FACT Magazine


Verbal Volley first aired in August 2015 to unanimous excitement – Riko’s fiery temperament and outspoken love of football have long set him apart as of one of grime’s most entertaining characters. A unique, spontaneous blend of football chat, grime music and special guests such as Logan Sama, Tinchy Stryder and Flowdan have ensured a fast growing, loyal listenership for VV.

Each show will video stream live at facebook.com/ntsradiolive and on radio as normal at nts.live > INT. Expect special guests, live callers and the most entertaining football chat on road.
