This week's show is now available via the iPlayer.
I'll keep it brief this week, because even z-List radio 'personalities' have rubbishy DIY tasks to fulfil on a Bank Holiday Monday, like a low-rent, really-let-himself-go, B&Q Hercules (for the record: I need to complete the Odyssey of the Front-Door, which involves capturing glittering brassware from the perilous passages of the local hardware emporium. Wish me luck!)
I've decided I'm going to try and curb my use of unmerited, casually tossed around hyperbole. About time, really. I've butchered more 'AMAAAAZINGS', 'AAAAWESOMES' and 'FANTASTIIIICS' than the combined scripts of Disney's teen channel. So this week's show contains some fine and interesting music... more per square kilohertz of airwave than quite a few others.
Sorry, I can't rein myself in like that.
This week's show is brimful of brilliance.
Including an exclusive play of a track from Black Serpent Choir's peripatetic new album, and first-time plays for Yaj, Jodie-Marie, Jumping Back Slash, People Of Pontic Origin, Shifty Sarah, Repeater 64, Touchstone Pictures, Apostles, Just Keep Swimming, Giles Barratt, Fingurz, Dataslaves and Rob Harrison.
Huw Williams again reminds us of the groovy excellence of Tony Sheveton's early recordings.
Lara Catrin translates my favourite song from Lleuwen's gritty and superlative recent album, Tn.
Ben Hayes inspires us with some Van Der Graaf Generator.
