During the recent Bradford International Film Festival, several BCB DJs provided additional evening entertainment in the cafe area. I’ve put together a Spotify playlist of some of the tunes we played. The tracks in the playlist were contributed by the following DJs:
Bradford International Film Festival starts tomorrow, celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema. Â So, it seemed fitting that I play something by Asha Bhosle in tonight’s show. Â Of the 12,000 songs she has reportedly recorded, I went for this one, from the 1970 film,Â Kati Patang:
BCB is involved in this year’s festival, curating some of theÂ BIFF By Night music events. Â I’ll be there most evenings, either DJing or overseeing proceedings, so if you’re around, come and say hello.
New music in tonight’s show included this by Rustie:
Well, I didn’t get half the tunes I wanted to get in tonight.Â Grrr.Â Many had to be held over to next week.Â While I was on, the 2011 Bradford International Film Festival was getting under way.Â If you’re in Bradford you should defintely try and get along to see at least one film during the festival.Â It is always really amazing the number of great films they manage to find.
If you missed tonight’s show, you can listen again for up to 4 weeks.Â Here’s the video to the Bibio tune I played:
For the very first time, my show has a podcast this week. If you heard the show you will have heard me talking to Eric Pulido of Midlake. What you will have heard is the abridged version of the interview, but the full thing is available for you here now, at the bottom of this blog entry.
Midlake have also backed John Grant on his debut solo album (he used to be the singer in The Czars). A funny thing happened the other day while I was listening to his album, Queen Of Denmark, for the first time. I was reading the brochure for the 16th Bradford International Film Festival while listening. Just as I was reading about Alien being on as part of Widescreen Weekend, John Grant was singing “I feel just like Sigourney Weaver, when she had to kill those aliens“. Spooksville..!
