This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer. Please take a listen any time between now and the start of the next programme.
Another sonic pot pourri for you, celebrating the incredible diversity of musical talent in Wales. Pot pourri is a bad analogy, really, because the individual elements of this show are not odd, tough, freeze-dried fragments that have had their souls replaced with aromatically-ludicrous natural oils.
Nope - instead we have flesh and blood human Welsh(and Welsh-ish) people crafting sonics to make the blood rush a little more quickly around your brains, your hearts and any other bits of you that generate excitement.
Very excitingly we have an exclusive taster of a mix that the unfeasibly talented aural architect, Ben Hayes, aka Soundhog, has constructed for the influential allez-allez music blog. Ben's encyclopaedic musical knowledge, perfectionism and great taste are writ all over the 12 minutes 20 seconds we have for you.
Ben returns later in the show to inspire us further with the Isley Borthers at their late '60s, funk-fuelled finest.
While I'm serving time for crimes against alliteration, you can also enjoy Alan Holmes talking to us about the long-lost, never-officially-recorded, but undoubtedly ace Megabats.
And Lara returns to translate something traditional and beautifully updated from 9bach's debut album.
There are début plays for Mykes, Caramelou, Jay Robinson, Dave Elwyn, Totem Terrors, ManPanics and Heavy Petting Zoo.
Have an excellent week.
Maybe see you at Gruff Rhys/Y Niwl & Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog's gig at Pesda Roc on Thursday night, or The Pooh Sticks' final (ever) Cardiff show at The Globe on Sunday night, or on the field at Merthyr Rocks.
Lots of love, but kisses would be inappropriate...
