In the past we've had tapes made for loved ones, potential loved ones, pupils, family holidays, Christmas presents; but this week's is a first. Fionnuala Thompson writes...


"In the heatwave of June 2009 my husband and I became the proud parents to a brand new, and very hungry, baby boy. I hadn't anticipated just how much time I was going to spend pinned underneath the child as he fed.


"I mentioned this to our friend, best man, recent dad and passionate music lover Adam. I added that I wished I had a decent playlist to listen to whilst breast-feeding but I didn't have time to make one. So Ad created Milk Cow Blues for us.


"It helped to keep us sane through the thrills and spills of new parenthood. It has also been excellent way to introduce my son to brilliant artists and songs during his favourite activity."


So, the artwork for the album looks like this...
