New music special - #Blog6Music

Tom Robinson invites listeners to compile their ultimate new music playlist, plus blogger Joe Sparrow from A New Band a Day picks his selections from the blogosphere.

Tom Robinson brings 6 Music listeners the must-hear tracks that have been making a splash this week.

It's a show of three parts as we kick off the first 30 minutes with our choice of the best new tracks.

Could it be the brand spanking new offering from the Manic Street Preachers? Maybe something from AlunaGeorge's eagerly-awaited album? Or what about The Vaccines' EP taster track?

Then blogger Joe Sparrow, from New Band a Day, takes over the next 30 minutes with his top new song selections from the blogosphere.
And, in the final hour, we turn the show completely over to listeners to pick the playlist, as we invite them to share the new tracks that they've been loving this week.
