In 1977, Star Wars hit the UK and was first covered in Issue 1 of STARBURST Magazine.

Now, nearly forty years later, STARBURST Magazine is the longest running magazine of sci-fi, horror, and fantasy in the world (predating even Empire Magazine).

Fab Radio is home to the official STARBURST RADIO Show, which has astoundingly managed to avoid being taken off the air for over two years.

Every Wednesday at 9pm, the Editors of STARBURST, Mike Royce and Martin Unsworth, tries to bring you the very latest in genre news and reviews, in a show that quite often descends into chaos. Join Mike and Martin (and sometimes the booze-addled STARBURST Shauna) in a world of lunatic callers, heated movie reviews, and dodgy conversations.

(FUN FACT: Can also be used as a handy reference guide for how not to host a radio show)
