    This week's show is now available via the BBC iPlayer.

    So, after last week's Half-Term Report on the Best Welsh Noises of 2011 ('so far'), we're back on more familiar, unfamiliar ground this week - three hours marvelling at the best sounds that have most recently arrived in my inbox, including début...

    Ten thousand apologies for the lateness of this information. I've spent the last three days in bed wrestling my tonsils. I have no idea what day it is.

    On Saturday on BBC Radio Wales, Jamie and Jack from Revoker joined me on the show to catch up about their forthcoming gig with Ozzy Osbourne for Kerrang's 30th anniversary, their signing last year to Roadrunner Records and everything that's happened since.

    They talk about the band's past and...

    This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. One of the (many) resolutions I have drawn up since my 'significant' birthday last week is to be more measured in the language I use when I talk about this show and the music that is contained therein.

    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...

    So far in this series of blogs offering advice on getting your music played on my radio show we have looked at, in part one, researching the shows you intend to send your music to and realising the importance of being brilliant; in part two, how 'being yourself' can give you a distinct advantage, and...

    This is part three of my series of blogs that offer advice to music-minded people who are considering sending their masterworks to my show (an act for which I am incredibly grateful). Please don't let this long list of demands - like Lady Gaga's kitten rider (one pink, one blue, one gold, all in Kittie...

    I hate pre-recording programmes.

    Doing it live is what it's all about, to me. When you record something, instinct and intuition evaporate like Blue Stratos on a griddle pan (I'm going to walk Masterchef, I tell you).

    But I did record this week's show because I had been invited to DJ at a sold-out Frank...

    This is the second in a series of blogs offering advice on submitting music to my BBC Radio Wales, Welsh music show. You can read the first instalment here.

    I've decided to do this as a series of dos and don'ts, in the dictatorial style of a poster at the municipal swimming pool. So, assuming you're...

    Now that my Sunday night show for new Welsh music has been fully assimilated, Borg-like, into the future technology of the BBC Introducing Uploader, I thought it would be a good idea to offer some tips and advice to artists intending to send me their music.

    We begin this week's show with a tribute to Les Morrison, a key member of the Welsh musical community, who sadly passed away on Friday 29 April. Les set up Stwdio Les in Bethesda, a facility he would allow the local bands to use for free.

    Prichard was born in Llanystumdwy, near Criccieth, in 1931. He trained Birmingham College of Art and taught in Anglesey until 1972, after...
