Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 20 March 2011

This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. Please visit the link below any time between now and the start of the next programme.

The show features more information about the imminent Radio Wales Music Day.

"What's that?" I hear you splutter into a variety of caffeinated drinks (it's too early for me as I type this. Tea you could stand Cleopatra's Needle in is all that's keeping me going).

Well, BBC Radio Wales Music Day is a day-long, station-wide celebration of Welsh music on Friday 25 March. Up to date information about the line-up can be found on the BBC Wales music pages.

I will be co-hosting Radio Wales' Evening Show that night at Clwyd Theatre Cymru, Mold (my hometown). (FREE) Tickets are still available. For more information see this blog entry.

This week's show is also the last we will be broadcasting from our current studios in Wrexham. We've been in this converted dance studio since 1998. I'm trying to work myself into an emotional lather about the move, but I can't. It's just a building. What made this place for me over the last 14 years was the great Welsh music that has arrived here since Mark Hughes (MBE) came in and terrified me during a live programme (he was there opening the studios - but no one had warned me.).

Our new premises are, however, very spick. We'll be able to invite bands in and everything. Very exciting times ahead!

Still, I'm sure I'll shed a tear into our outdated desk's analogue innards before the end of this week's show.

Before that, Alan Holmes reminds us of the rollicking aceness of Handmade Noise; Lara Catrin translates something foamy from Bando and Ben 'Soundhog' Hayes brings in a rather fitting choice.

There is a fascinating detour to the Legendary TJ's in the company of Kurt and Courtney.

And there is a high density of ace music, including debut plays for Sophie Ballamy, Little Arrow, Golden Fables, the R-Kives and Autophase. And - finally - I play what I consider to be the greatest piece of music it's been my pleasure to hurl onto the airwaves from this soundproofed, hessian shoebox that has been the show's home these last 13 years.

Please send demos/new releases/messages of sympathy for the show's bright new future to themysterytour@gmail.com.
