This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. It has no particular, front page-grabbing, tabloid-nuzzling headliner; instead, it's a thrillingly democratic celebration of Ace Noises That Happen To Come From Wales. I've capitalised that because it is The Ethos Of The Show. In A Nutshell.
I'll Stop Now.
You'll also learn the lesson that I learnt on Saturday afternoon: that leaving your car in Connah's Quay, for the sake of a few, casual (free) cans of Stella with friends, can exact a painful price. I'm amazed I can type, such is the all encompassing agony wracking every fibre of my being.
Not that I'm being melodramatic, or anything.
In amongst the new stuff, the token Public Enemy track and a bit of De La Soul, you'll find Alan Holmes expounding on the Arctic (via Wrexham) delights of Artaud Beats. Lara Catrin translates Maharishi and Ben Hayes brings in a 20th birthday cake for My Bloody Valentine's epochal Loveless album.
We have debut plays for the Watkins Screamers, Sam Jones, Joseph & David, Crevasses, Rumour and Anna Rose Carter.

Have a better-than-middling week, and you hear anything ace, please tell me about it. I like to leech.
