When a double glazing salesperson turns up on your doorstep and tells you how much warmer your house will be, how much more satisfied you’ll feel about your lot in life, even on a grey fug of a February day, if only you’d order new PVC windows from them - it’s patter.

When The Apprentice sends a bicker of the ‘finest business brains in the UK’ (disguised, for some reason, as petty dunderheads) to harass the public into buying claptrap, the convoluted, persuasive lies they use – cycling proficiency Jedi mind tricks - it's patter.

You could be forgiven for thinking that everything in this modern day world of ours, that isn’t a banker’s bonus or storm damage, is patter.

THIS ISN’T PATTER.

This week’s show is very, very spiky with brilliant new music of Welsh origin.

So many thrilling new artists who hadn’t been baptised on my radio show before: The Featherz, Sea Lion, Luvv, Mandy, Past Grievances, Bur Hoff Bau, Saron, Pine Canopies, The Caspiens, Ruby Parfitt, Sam, Not My Finest Hour and Bethany.

Throw music, minus patter, at me via the BBC Introducing Uploader or to themysterytour@gmail.com

Elsewhere, godfather of the Welsh underground (as in musical movement, not mass transit system) Alan Holmes revisits the fulsome wonders of the Rub-a-Dub Jug Band.

Ben Hayes, a.k.a. Soundhog, shines a light on some un-hey-nonny-nonny Fairport Convention.

And I rush back and forth from the loo.

The moral of this story is - check your best before dates. Even mushroom burgers have the scope and potential to ruin the most cast-iron guts.

Not patter.

Many thanks / diolch o gallon.
