This week's show is now available on the BBC iPlayer. Please visit the link any time between now and the start of the next programme.

This coming weekend Cymdeithas Yr Iaith Gymraeg celebrate their 50th birthday - and, particularly, 50 years of their proactive support for Welsh language music - with a momentous festival in Pontrhydfendigaid.

Hanner Cant features a 'who's who' of the finest Welsh-thinking musical minds of the last half century, from legends like Meic Stevens, Gruff Rhys and Heather Jones through to new artists like Sen Segur and Y Bandana. Gruff Rhys talks to us about the important contribution Cymdeithas has made to Welsh culture.

We preview the Welsh artists who will be appearing at next weekend's 2000 Trees Festival in Cheltenham.

Sam Harries, manager of Newport's Le Pub, tells us about how this vitally important venue is under threat of closure, and what is being done to try and save it.

Alan Holmes peers back into producer David Wrench's intriguing past.

Lara Catrin translates some Trwbador for us.

Ben Hayes inspires us with homemade, Frankenstein synthesisers courtesy of Tonto's Expanding Head Band.

And there is mind-expanding music, lots of it, including début plays for Exclusivo, Indigo Sky, White Noise and Tsunami.
