Stuart Bailie.jpgIf you like old Billy Bragg, then the 2008 version will surely delight you. As far back as 'Levi Stubbs' Tears' you appreciated that he was into his soul music. His voice has become looser and deeper over time, resulting in a voice that can cajole and testify, big style. And on the Hammond organ he's got Ian McLagan, sometime member of the Small Faces and then the Faces. Together they are beautiful on 'Mr Love & Justice'.

So there was plenty of Bragg on the Friday show. plus a chance to hear myself in conversation with Ben Glover, author of the excellent 'The Week The Clocks Changed' album. Note to self: must listen more to that bijou Miracle Fortress record.
