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.
So, the boiler blew up; it was half-term and the local supermarket had warned me about me leaving my daughter in their cafe all day again. I had to spend a (wonderful) day in a museum at Bangor University, plans for Radio Wales Music Day 2012 were being made, as were plans for a working trip to America at the end of March, and the dog ate my homework.
These are all my excuses for the appalling lateness of this missive.
And it's such a bloody good show too. Not blowing my own trumpet. I don't have a trumpet. I've got a rubbish brass stab-soft synth sound on GarageBand but that is not the same. The goodness emanates from the excellent musical minds celebrated within our three hours of sonic exploration.
For example, Wrexham's Camera treat us to an emotive and melodic rush of a live session featuring excellent versions of tunes you can find on their second album For When You Wake.
Huw Williams comes in with a hunk of new wave ace from 1979.
Lara Catrin translates an entire Welsh opera for us.
Ben Hayes proves that Toni Basil has good claim to the title: 'Coolest Human Being Ever'.
So, again, sorry for the lateness - but if you have the time, do find the inclination to visit the link. Fascinating music lies within. Guaranteed*
