Buffet #63 – Bobby is Back!

Hello hello!

If you tuned in to Buffet on Sunday 18th May – thanks! If you’re here to have a listen – click this bit!

Emma 2Emma made a triumphant return, which was marvellous, as she can only pop in sporadically to share her ace musical choices. And she really served up a treat with our Bastardised Beatles track of the month. Goodbye Beatles is a very special tribute album! If Emma’s track choice doesn’t make you chuckle when you hear it, there’s something seriously wrong with you…

And you also have a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Swans at the Cockpit, Leeds on Sunday 1st June. We want you to Tweet or Facebook us your pictures of swans using the hashtag #uptheswanny They can be any kind of picture and any kind of Swan! The deadline is midnight on Tuesday 20th May. And for inspiration, here’s a picture Emma drew. It documents a real-life situation where a giant swan attacked her girlfriend:

A Bumper Buffet New Year Special (#57)

Happy New Year!

The Head Honchos at BCB entrusted us with the task of seeing in the New Year, and somehow we managed not to break anything (although Betty Bird did inadvertently knock the needle from Emma Bob 3′s Nadine Shah record when playing with her Hello Kitty Christmas gifts). We played a lot of good music between 11pm and 1pm and you can pretend it’s midnight all over again by listening to part one and part two via BCB’s nifty podcast thingy. (A parental advisory warning – there are a few sweary bits post midnight). And we did the typical end of year round up thingy by chucking in a few 2013 favourites as well as tips for 2014.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who sent in requests and suggestions!

1. Prince – 1999
2. David Bowie – Boys Keep Swinging
3. Future of the Left – Johnny Borrell Afterlife

The Mirrored Hammer

The fourth episode of The Mirrored Hammer: Art, Culture and Social Change airs tonight at 9pm on BCB 106.6FM. This episode focuses on varying approaches in socially-concious art and culture and its potential to effect change from the level of the individual to the social and environmental. It features excerpts from talks by Karren Ablaze about her new book ‘The City is Ablaze: The Story of A Post-Punk Popzine 1984 – 1994′; fragments of the Bradford One launch event with Griff Rhys Jones talking about the use of Bradford’s former Odeon Building as a cultural centre and music venue; artist Jeanne Van Heeswijk on sustainable socially-engaged art and the Homebaked project as part of the Liverpool Biennial; an interview with Interactive Arts trio Invisible Flock; and excerpts from Irna Qureshi and Chol Theatre’s rehearsed reading of ‘Cartographies of Love’ and accompanying discussion. There’s also bootlegs of live performances by Cowtown, The Jelas, Garfunkle and Simon, James Blackshaw and Matthew Bourne.

Last month’s episode is here if you want to warm yourself up:
