    This week's show features a session from Newport's Dirty Goods. They're creators of intelligent, dancefloor-friendly pop that - to my ears - reminds me of Phoenix. They've been sharing their eminently communicable beats and tunes with our America cousins over recent weeks.

    They're one of the Welsh bands...

    Stories about witches are found all over the world - during the 16th and 17th centuries a "witch craze" in Europe saw over 100,000 people, mainly women, accused of witchcraft and executed by secular government and the church.

    Yet there were relatively few witch trials in Wales, with only five Welsh witches...

    These days we live in a world of investigative journalism - much of it not very palatable. But back in the 1930s, when the term hadn't even been invented, one Welshman used his pen to expose what was, in effect, a holocaust of major proportions.

    The man in question was Gareth Jones, a young journalist...

    Ralph Hancock, born in Cardiff in the year 1893, was undoubtedly the Capability Brown of the domestic and city garden - and yet, these days, virtually nobody has heard of this Welsh gardening genius.
