Eclectic Mainline 11th July 2012

This morning I thought today’s might be my last ever show on BCB.  After Chris Moyles announced he was leaving the Radio 1 Breakfast Show, I felt sure Ben Cooper would be on the phone offering me the role… but no, someone called Nick Grimshaw got the call.   So, much to everybody’s surprise, I’m still here!

Ahem, so, on with the business in hand…

New James Yorkston album

Today I saw this new James Yorkston video, which precedes his new album, I Was A Cat From A Book.  The special edition of the album looks utterly amazing. The video is precisely what musicians should be doing in the digital age, in my view.  Good work James, and good work Domino Records.

This week we’re giving away tickets to see Frankie Rose at the Brudenel Social Club on Tuesday 24th July, plus a copy of her new album, Interstellar. To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer this question:

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.
