Tribute to Saltaire Live promoter

We belatedly paid tribute on this week’s show to Simon Heginbotham, who died recently.

As well as being a cricketer and beer festival organiser, he was well known for promoting top folk acts under the banner Saltaire Live.

Hers’s the full list of what we played on the show:

Duckworth Lewis Method – Test Match Special
Alice Boman – Heartbeat
Angelo Palladino – Let Us Go Down
Father John Mistry – Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All
Bella Gaffney – The Blues
Frank Turner – Little Changes
Team Picture – Strange Year
The DMAs – Dawning
The Golden Age of TV – Television
Jon Trawlerman – This Is LA
Car Seat Headrest – Bodys
Sly and the Family Stone – Stand
Maria Helena – Balkan Night
