Fun Show this week, with an interview with Chris from Yeasayer! Joel was away, but me and KC were as present as ever. KC’s Backrow Banter was entertaining as always, although it was a shame that we were back to a 6/10 film.
And the interview was fun to do. It may even get another playing at some point.
See you next week at 6.30pm on Wednesday or 1.00pm on Thursday!
Gaggle – I Hear Flies
Sondre Lerche – Bluish (Animal Collective Cover)
Yeasayer – Madder Red
KC’s Backrow Banter – Alice in Wonderland (6/10)
Radikal Satan – Prohibido
The era of the half past five show has ended, but a new one is about to begin; namely that of the 6.30 show.
Next Week (3rd of March) we are launching with an exciting interview with Beach House (which we are sharing with Albert Freeman’s Eclectic Mainline). And the week after we have one all to ourselves with Chris Keating from Yeasayer.
But before all that, in the last show at our current time we had a typical selection of new tunes from the likes of Strange Boys and Hot Chip.
Singing the News was about The President of America (Barack Obama) meeting an exiled Tibetan spiritual leader (the Dalai Lama).
We’ve been forced today away from our usual live broadcast due to rehearsal commitments for this weekend’s Raise Your Banners festival of political song, a worthy excuse if ever there was one.Â So this show was a pre-record.
Yessir. A trip down on Saturday night may well result in you seeing my goodself in some fetching women’s clothing…!
But yes, this week we played some very nice stuff indeed.
WILD BEASTS – The Fun Powder Plot
Here’s the Kendal / Leeds gang’s fantastic Jool’s performance for those that missed it too-
Then we talked about how Laura Groves AKA Blue Roses still owes us all a pound in royalties for singing on her album (along with a few other BCB Broadcasters I believe, Albert?)
We played an old version of-
BLUE ROSES – COAST
and chatted about her imminent headline tour:
Then a glorious short from-
THE BOBBY MCGEES – L.O.V.E / A Masonic Youth
New music then from the glorious Yeasayer.
‘Ambling Alp’ is their new single.

Properly stunning stuff, we’re really glad to have some new music coming from those guys after overplaying ‘All Hours Cymbals’ the last few… well… years! (it came out in 2007!)
KC’s Backrow banter gave a solid 8/10 to thirst.
On at the pictureville now!
And a solid dressing down to the latest Danny Dyer / Tamer Hassan / FIDDY Cent shocker ‘Dead Man Running’, 2/10.
We finished with DEVENDRA BARNHART – Baby
