Eclectic Mainline 27th October 2010

Tonight, to mark the fact that The Duke & The King are playing in Leeds at The Wardrobe tomorrow with Wilful Missing I repeated the session of theirs, first broadcast in Laura’s BCB Sessions back on 12th May.  You can also listen to their session again here on Untitled Noise if you so wish.

Win free tickets to see Duke & the King!

My messages are like buses…you wait ages and then loads come at once. But the joy when you get one is oh so good!

Great news, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to see The Duke & the King and Wilful Missing! They’re playing tomorrow night (Thursday 28th) at the Wardrobe in Leeds (right next to the bus station). It’ll be fantastic! I saw them play at the Hi Fi – it was packed and brilliant. So if you want to go for free (courtesy of the Hee Haw Sessions & BCB radio) then tune in tonight to Eclectic Mainline from 8pm. The winner will be announced before 10pm on The BCB Sessions. That’s 106.6fm if you’re in Bradford or www.bcbradio.co.uk to listen online.
