This week it’s a repeat – I’ll be back in the studio next week with a brand new programme, including Francophonic 2, the second compilation of music by the legendary Congolese bandleader Franco, Neil Young rarities and lots more.

To whet your appetite for the Franco, here’s a message from our man Grumpy, an avowed Franco fan keenly anticipating Francophonic 2 by scouring Youtube: “I came across this storming live version of ‘Pesa Position Na Yo’ with Madilu in fine voice and the band soaring (shame about the quality of the video but the music shines through).”

About Rob

Rob co-founded BCB with Mary Dowson, back when the hills were young and it were all flat caps an chappatis round 'ere. It was known as Bradford Festival Radio then, and thanks to the generosity of Dusty Rhodes we got started. Now he takes photos, puts little silver discs in drawers, mumbles into microphones, and walks on the hills. Keep On Blowin..
