Bingley Music Live on The BCB Sessions!

We’re continuing the summer of festival sounds on The BCB Sessions with a look ahead to Bingley Music Live (2-4th Sept, surprisingly enough - in Bingley)..if previous years are to go by this’ll be great.

The Go! Team – T.O.R.N.A.D.O (Banging out tunes at this year’s Bingley Music Live – BML)

Gogol Bordello – Immigraniada (Bass nectar remix)

She Keeps Bees – Vulture

Washed Out – Eyes be closed (I’m addicted to this…)

CANT - Believe

Stereo MCs – Deep down and dirty (Sunday crowd pleasers at BML)

Stateless – I’m on fire (blue daisy flammable mix)

The Sunshine Underground – Put you in your place (currently working on a new album for release later this year – rolling out the favourite’s at BML)

The BCB Sessions is live on Wednesday nights at 9pm on 106.6fm in Bradford and online at www.bcbradio.co.uk

If you can’t catch the show live then fear not – you can listen again at your leisure via BCB’s listen again service – www.bcbradio.co.uk

Looking ahead to the show on Wed 7th Sept, 9pm we’re showcasing some of the artists that you can catch at Saltaire Live Lounge (part of the Saltaire Festival, 10th Sept). It’s gonna be great – live, local acts playing in front rooms across Saltaire. As if you needed any encouragement to flock to Fanny Street…

Don’t forget you can get in touch if you’d like to do a session for m’show or if you’ve got tunes you’d like me to play: laura.rawlings@bcbradio.co.uk
