Good morning, Patrick Thornton from the Selection Box programme checking in.
Well, how very exciting – another place to babble incoherently. As if an hour’s worth of airtime every week to waffle on in between records wasn’t enough to satisfy my personal vanity.
For those of you lucky enough not to have caught my show, I am a high profile and well-respected radio disc jockey with up to 3 listeners. Wow, imagine that.
There’s no enormously intellectual agenda to Selection Box, the intention is simply to enjoy music of all genres. I’d like to think that everyone listening would like at leat one record played during the show, and whilst not seeking to be willfully obscure I’d hope that lots of what we play will be new to you.
You can also contribute to the content – particularly by sending suggestions for our long record feature Thanking Your Kind Indulgence. Here are the rules:
1. The track must last 7 minutes or more.
2. It must be good.
3. That’s it.
All giddy and excited because this is my first post – am probably blogging on the wrong bit of the page but sure you’ll forgive me.Â
Just in case you’ve not sampled the delights of The BCB Sessions let me tell you what it’s all about. EveryÂ Wednesday night at 9pm,Â I serve up an exclusive session from a band or artist based in or playing in West Yorks, plus a choice selection of new and alternative releases. We’ve had over 100 sessions – so too many to mention here but recent guestsÂ include King Creosote, Freyed Knot, Red Wire, My Latest Novel, Stricken City, The Lodger, vAndal supreMe, The Little Black Hearts, Ann Drury, justDEFY….
Our autumn sessions are shaping up rather nicely too with sessions on the way fromÂ Disco Machine Gun (next week Wed 2nd Sept), Willard Grant Conspiracy, Meet Me In Vegas, Brigada Mercy & others I can’t reveal quite yet -Â check out the blog in a few weeks.
So come and tune your ear into 106.6fm on Wednesday nights. If you’re outside of Bradford (or on the wrong side of a big hill)Â then listen in over the net. Might play you a request….
