    Although daylight hours have been in short supply I have spent many happy hours sitting at my kitchen table answering family history queries that are sent to me from people all around the world.

    In preparation for this week's appearance on BBC Radio Wales' Jamie and Louise programme I've been busy...

  7. Elis James' Pantheon of Heroes on BBC Radio Wales

    Thursday 12 January 2012, 16:44

    Laura Chamberlain Laura Chamberlain

    Welsh comedian Elis James hosts a brand new comedy show on BBC Radio Wales that examines some of Wales' forgotten historic heroes.

    The premise of Elis James' Pantheon of Heroes, which starts tomorrow evening, is that Elis has been given a dubious grant - and a very hypothetical one at that - to populate...

    This week Shirley Bassey is the subject of a fascinating two-part Radio 2 programme Bassey!, in which the Tiger Bay singer tells her life story to Paul Sexton.

    In this clip from episode one, Dame Shirley remembers her classic vocal performance on Goldfinger (along with the late John Barry, Don Black...

    In a New Year's Day special, Adam Walton talked to Super Furry Animal and current solo star Gruff Rhys in an extended interview.

    Covering his career from his earliest forays into music, Gruff and Adam meandered fascinatingly through the last 25 years. You can listen again to the interview here:

    The first BBC Radio Wales Saturday night session for 2012 went to Cardiff three piece band Kutosis, whose album A Fanatical Love has been a regular on my radio show since it was released by Barely Regal a few months ago.

    I'm of the opinion that 2011 was a Very Good Year for Welsh music.

    OK, I'm not aware of any Welsh bands who clawed their way to the top of increasingly irrelevant sales charts. I'm only vaguely aware of a few bands whose music got clutched to the hearts...

    No! Never!

    Like, what's the point? I don't need one. And it's just a passing fad, anyway, like the personal-organiser and the mini-disc. And why would I want another charger to add to the 26 I already have and can't remember what most of them are for? Besides, think how many paperbacks you can get for...

    The Hay Festival has become such a massive phenomenon, inspiring imitators across the UK and beyond, that it's sometimes difficult to remember how it all started.

    Unless, that is, you drop into the Hay Winter Weekend, as we did for Sunday's Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales.

    The only known vampire in Wales - arguably the oldest recorded in Britain - came from the border area around the end of the 12th century.

    Little is known about this case, but it did appear to leave an entire community seriously anaemic before it ended with the full works, including the traditional exhumation...
