Doubling up

We just couldn’t cram the best Bradford tracks into a Top 10 so we’ve expanded the concept into a Top 20 instead!

Over the next two weeks we’re bringing your our choice of the finest songs produced by acts from our neck of the woods. Here’s the countdown from numbers 20 to 11:

11 Anita Madigan – The Dalai Lama Loves You All
12 Threshold Shift – Hang In There
13 Leafeater – Garden of Love
14 Negatives – 69
15 Creation Roots – Let Jah Music Play
16 handmadehands – Over The Edge
17 Laura Groves – Coast
18 Daisy Cutter – Morning Sun
19 Yo El Rey – And One For The Doctor
20 Talk To Angels – He Loves Cilla

We also played these other tracks this week:

Girlpool -Blah Blah Blah
Alt-J – Left Hand Free
The Delvaux – At The Jeunesse Doree
Mini Mansions – Death Is A Girl

You can listen again here – and the Top 10 will be broadcast on Bradford Beat on Thursday 27 November from 8pm.

16 March – Joe Tilston on The BCB Sessions!


Are things better late than never? Hmmmm….hope so! At least if you listen again to the The BCB Sessions (go to BCB’s www.bcbradio.co.uk) you can see the matching track listings! Shows last on the system for listen again purposes for four weeks after broadcast. So, on 16th March Joe Tilston was my featured artist. Joe and Luke performed a great session so it’s definitely worth going back to. He’s got a great radio voice and I love playing the little jingle he did for the show. Thanks for coming in chaps.
