This morning I thought today’s might be my last ever show on BCB. Â After Chris Moyles announced he was leaving the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, I felt sure Ben Cooper would be on the phone offering me the role… but no, someone called Nick Grimshaw got the call. Â So, much to everybody’s surprise, I’m still here!
Ahem, so, on with the business in hand…
New James Yorkston album
Today I saw this new James Yorkston video, which precedes his new album, I Was A Cat From A Book. Â The special edition of the album looks utterly amazing. The video is precisely what musicians should be doing in the digital age, in my view. Â Good work James, and good work Domino Records.
Frankie Rose competition
This week we’re giving away tickets to see Frankie Rose at the Brudenel Social Club on Tuesday 24th July, plus a copy of her new album, Interstellar. To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer this question:
Frankie Rose is from Brooklyn. Â Brooklyn is a district of which city:

Post your answer as a comment on this blog, or tweet @bcbradio by Tuesday 17th July 2012. Â The winner will be announced on my show on Wednesday 18th July.
