Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 24 July 2011
This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. Please visit the link below any time between now and the start of the next programme.
This week we're baking under superb sunshine in the beautiful, expansive grounds of the Faenol Estate in Bangor, at the 5th Gwyl Gardd Goll festival. BBC Radio (us & the wonderful people at C2) recorded all of the bands on the Y Nyth stage on the Saturday, and I get to treat you to excellent sets from Creision Hud and Vvolves.
This e-mail is five days tardy because it took me a while to recuperate from the festival... my two days there are detailed elsewhere on this blog (Saturday and Sunday). There are a lot of words, quite a few pictures, and some mumbling about feeling "existentially adrift"... that sensation has passed now. I put it down to too much bad news, sunshine and too many hours hypnotised by the white lines on the A55.
Elsewhere on the show: Huw Williams introduces us to Joey and the Gentlemen (1964). Ben Hayes makes a stirring (& almost convincing) case for the non-naffness of Electric Light Orchestra and Lara Catrin translates something jangly and ace (about beer goggles) from Pretty Places.
There are only a couple of debut plays on this week's show (Dev79 & Thrills, The Toy Band, Doom Reggae & Xentrix - so, if you're new/you're ace/you've never been played on the radio before, & you're Welsh/based in Wales or on a Welsh label, please throw your music at me (or recommendations of ace bands you've seen) via: firstname.lastname@example.org (mp3s/download links) or by visiting the BBC Introducing Uploader.

I'm off to make a panad.
This Sunday will feature a preview of the imminent National Eisteddfod in Wrexham. I'm DJing Maes B on Saturday night (30th) & judging a battle of the bands at the same venue on Monday & Tuesday night. See you there. Or, more appropriately, wela i di yna!
