The Tampa Kyle Show

Haven't heard the Hawk show before? Well, if you're an early riser you could help Chris, and his long-suffering producer Slev, pick a 5.15 track - the first request of the day on 6 Music - you can pick anything you like. There's also a BBC weather forecast from one of the forecasters off the telly - it really is a weather report like no other. And if you like useless bits of musical information then The Rockbook Files will fill you in on what happened on this day in history. However, we think the best part of the show has to be the ridiculous chat in between the great records, new and old.

Today's show was full of missives from Kyle in Tampa, Florida; there was another mystery album review from Andrew Collins (applause) in Have I Got Reviews For You; Darren Bett managed to do his weather forecast without being sick; There was a BRILLIANT Wendy James/Tranvision Vamp story from Hawk; The Rockbook Files celebrated soul man Sam Moore's birthday, and Christine in Ely chose her Exit Music (Rise by P.I.L. for her dad Don). Plus even more music from Kings of Leon, Prince, The Macabees, The Cure, Roy Davis Jr, and The Knack, no less.
