Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 28 March 2010
They're one of the Welsh bands most likely to achieve recognition far away from our borders. Apparently they're "cute" too. My daughter said so. But she's seven and more fickle than your average Premiership footballer.
Lara Catrin continues her one-woman crusade to improve our Welsh language skills using the medium of Welsh song lyrics. This week she persuades me to take a stab at translating Kentucky AFC's Bodlon. The results don't do too much for my confidence in my recently acquired Cymraeg.
Ruthin's Ben Hayes - musicologist, DJ, producer and proud Trilby wearer - enthuses inspirationally about Half Man Half Biscuit. This is because we went to see them in Shrewsbury last week. I'd paid them scant attention in the past, dismissing them as a loud and badly-produced joke band. I was wrong in excelcis. They are my new revelation. Truly.
Also, we have some great new Welsh music - I'm enthralled and intrigued in particular by Vvolves, Ivan Moult, heh, Slaya P... these are new artists I've never played before. They're great.

Apologies in advance for a legion of errors and stumbles. The music's ace. That is all that counts.
Diolch yn fawr iawn.
