This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.
I'm going to keep this brief because I'm in the midst of writing the Mother Of All Blogs detailing (well, not too much detail) my experiences at last week's National Eisteddfod in Wrexham.
Much of the show reflects some of the great sounds I heard there. But there is much from elsewhere too, including debut plays for: His Naked Torso, Wibidi, Bury Me In L.A., A Skylight Tonight, Bodez, The Hotel Ambush, Angelpig, Substance, Kryophere, NecroNath and Castor.
Huw Williams brings us something unintentionally ironic from Major Rowely. Ben Hayes blows us away with something from Robert Palmer's early back catalogue that's a world away from exploiting models and causing a dip in the world's hair gel market.
Longwinded, but sound, advice on submitting music to the show is available here:
- Submitting Music to the Show Dos & Don'ts #1
- Submitting Music to the Show Dos & Don'ts #2

I've written a love letter to one of the songs on this week's show. I'd love to know (either reply or post a comment on the blog) about the pieces of music that have completely poleaxed you. Just so I feel less embarrassed about having bared my soul so unflinchingly).
Gigs of the week are Shy And The Fight/Denuo and Winter Villains at Ten Feet Tall in Cardiff this Tuesday (9th) night & Race Horses at the Fairy Falls Hotel, Trefriw, Gwynedd on Friday night (12th).
Feel free to share any of this information with all and sundry.
Have an excellent week,Adam
