As it's the last in the current series of Edith's show I asked producer Richard Murdoch to sum up the programmes - here's what he says:

We've had lots of fun on the Edith Bowman Album Show discovering new releases, revisiting some old favourites and playing you tracks from almost 120 different albums. We send our apologies to your bank balance but hope we've introduced you to some new music for your collection.

Ten things I've learnt from this series...

If you tune in this Friday from 8pm you'll learn a few more things...

Peter Buck from REM's favourite album is something jazzy. Along with Gary Lightbody, his new band Tired Pony play two tracks from their debut album on the show.
The first album Paloma Faith bought was her attempt to fit in with everyone else. She also reveals her current favourite album.
Frankie Goes To Hollywood recorded, then shelved a cover of a Sex Pistols track. You'll also hear a snippet of a rare and previously unheard version of Relax and find out what classic albums ZTT are reissuing.
And we'll reveal the number 1 on the first ever album chart, this week in July 1956.

It might be the last in the present series of Edith Bowman's Album Show tonight from 8pm - but here's some exclusive news for you...it will return to BBC Radio Scotland in November, so alert your bank manager now.

Returning to Friday nights next week from 2000 is Another Country with Ricky Ross.
