Selection Box Show 300


Like some sort of wireless Don Bradman I strode to the radio crease a few weeks ago and edged my way past 300. This means that if you listened to all editions of Selection Box in a row without any interruption you’d be aurally imbibing me talking in between records for over 12 days without sleep. In other words, you’d be a ruddy idiot.

Eclectic Mainline 9th April 2014

Since I announced last week that I’m stopping Eclectic Mainline at the end of April, I’ve been touched by the responses I have had.  Thanks ever so much for all the comments and good wishes.  I was particularly moved by Phil’s blog post.  He’s right when he says new music “exposes [people] to things that are happening now and encourages them to look outside the norms to different possibilities and opportunities”.  Well said Phil.

So, speaking of new music, this week’s programme included Lorelle Meets The Obsolete:

… Mungo’s Hi-Fi:


… and Shonen Knife:

Eclectic Mainline 25th March 2014

As with just about everyone on Twitter over the past couple of weeks, I’ve reminded myself what my first Tweet was. And it was a link to my MySpace blog with my latest BCB track lists. Ho ho:


That was just over 5 years ago, and it was only a few months later that we wrote the first post on this BCB Music Blog.  And what a good idea this blog has turned out to be.  While we’re talking about the past, next week I will be celebrating my 10th anniversary on BCB.   Anyway, enough of the history lesson.  New music in this week’s programme included this by Downliners Sekt:

and this from the new Polar Bear LP:

There’s a local gig next week you need to know about.  Golden Cabinet are bringing the “dark ambience” of Gnod back to Shipley on 5th April.
