Sonya from Echobelly

Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie are joined by Echobelly's lead singer, Sonya Aurora Madan.

Mark Radcliffe and Stuart Maconie are joined by Echobelly's lead singer Sonya Aurora Madan. Sonya co-founded the group with Swedish guitarist Glenn Johansson in the early 90s. They met in a pub and teamed up with members of Curve and PJ Harvey's band to release their first EP Bellyache back in 1993. Fast forward to 2017 and Sonya and Glenn have a new rhythm section and are releasing their first single as Echobelly in 10 years.

Supplementary to the main event, The Chain returns, over six chiliads* of songs. No repetitions and YOU get to pick the next one. There's also a dose of Tea Time Theme Time to ease you into late afternoon. Simple, it's a triplet of songs which are linked together in some way...but how?
(*a group of 1,000).
