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.
This week, Radio 1 and C2's Huw Stephens comes in to tell us about the Green Man Unsigned competition, an opportunity for an unsigned artist to open the internationally renowned Green Man Festival, this August in Glanusk.
I preview the forthcoming Hanner Cant festival - a momentous celebration of the Welsh Language Society's 50th birthday and the support they have given Welsh language thinking artists in that period.
Many of Wales' finest artists will congregate in the historic pavilion in Pontrhydfendigaid, west Wales on 13-14 July for Hanner Cant. And tickets are ridiculously cheap, considering the amazing line-up: Gruff Rhys/Heather Jones/Y Niwl/Tecwyn Ifan/Colorama/Meic Stevens/Llwybr Llaethog and many more.
The Pooh Sticks' Huw Williams comes along to tell us about one of the cheesiest, but nevertheless fascinating, records it's ever been my dubious pleasure to play.
Ben Hayes introduces us to The Norman Haines Band.
And there is a lot of new Welsh music, bristling with ideas and amazing sounds. We have new tracks from Euros Childs, Family Of The Year and Knickers and there are début plays for No Ceremony ///, Wolfchild, Tonfedd Oren, Soundwire, The Decoys, Crying Wolf Club and Gorilla Fight Mansion.
