This week's show is now available on the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.
The show is a fist of defiance in the face of the booze aliens who attempted to kidnap me in Cardiff on Thursday afternoon. My feeling is they come from a musically barren planet and are jealous of Wales' sonic riches (little 'r').
Despite their attempts to poison me, keep me up all night and break my voice (by forcing me to answer - in order - all of the most inane questions I've ever asked in interviews... it was a long night) I tricked them and escaped, all so I could bring you this week's show. As I said, a fist of defiance. Well, a collection of fascinating Welsh sounds... but 'fist of defiance' sounds sexier.
So - despite an obviously damaged brain - I bring you first time plays for Oakesy, Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve, Inc.A, Audio Additive, Secateurs, Don Kool, Ryan Elis and Tom Ash.
Green Man Festival's Fiona Stewart talks about the imminent excellence of Busk On The Usk - Green Gartside, Jon Langford, Cate Le Bon, Anna Calvi and many more all appearing for free this coming Saturday in Newport (you still need to claim a free ticket to attend).
Alan Holmes celebrates the polymathic and idiosyncratic Mark Windows.
Lara Catrin translates something naive and wonderful from Y Nhw.
Ben Hayes gets all tweedily excited by The Searchers.
Please send fascinating sounds as a high quality mp3 or download link to: email@example.com.
More sleep, this week. No booze aliens. I showed them.
