Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 10 October 2010
This week's three-hour runaround of the best Welsh music to bless my inbox fair busts at the seams with ace sounds. I'm particularly proud to have a storming 3 song session from Llanelli's Cut Ribbons. Their insistent boy/girl vocals really make their fine songs stand out. Give them a shout on MySpace if you enjoy them. Bands like that kind of thing and don't get it half often enough.
Elsewhere, godfather of the Welsh underground, Alan Holmes, brings up some bright pop from his trawl of North Wales' musical past. Have you heard Igam Ogam? If you haven't, I think you'll enjoy their idiosyncratic take on the synth pop of the 1980s. The Rhosneigr '80s synth pop scene isn't well documented. Let Alan redress the balance somewhat.
Lara Catrin translates Colorama's Dere Mewn for us. A beautiful heartwarming song well worth clutching to your hearts for the winter months ahead.
Ben 'Soundhog' Hayes finishes things off excellently with a large ladle of Memphis Soul Stew.
And we have over 40 prime pieces of Welsh music from all over the country to inspire, intrigue and delight you.
Please send your demos as high quality .mp3s to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or post them to: Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales, Library & Arts Centre, Rhosddu Rd., WREXHAM LL11 1AU
Finally, if you have any release dates or key Welsh music events you'd like me to include in the Welsh Music Calendar ( https://email@example.com&ctz=Europe/London ) , please send your info to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will add it at the first opportunity I get.
Thank you/diolch yn fawr iawn,
Have an excellent music-filled week,
PLEASE NOTE: there is a technical issue with this week's show. Due to a partial line failure between Wrexham and Cardiff, we only broadcast on one channel (of the stereo pair). This means that although the music is still excellent, some tracks aren't heard at their absolute best. We apologise for this inconvenience. Our technicians are working to solve the problem in time for the next programme.
