Shows last on the system for listen again purposes for four weeks after broadcast. So, on 16th March Joe Tilston was my featured artist. Joe and Luke performed a great session so it’s definitely worth going back to. He’s got a great radio voice and I love playing the little jingle he did for the show. Thanks for coming in chaps.

Every week thereâ€™s nothing I love more (well almost!) than discovering new songs and recording sessions. This is especially true when it comes to local talent â€“ strictly of the musical variety. Thanks for sending in tunes and gigs dates â€“ keep em coming. Youâ€™re lovely. You can either email: firstname.lastname@example.org or post: Laura Rawlings, The BCB Sessions, 11 Rawson Road, Bradford BD1 3SH.
If I think it’ll tickle our collective fancy, Iâ€™ll get it on the show and youâ€™ll join The BCB Sessionsâ€™ â€œHall of Fameâ€ alongside Blue Roses, Freyed Knot, The Luminaries, Lone Wolf, The Duke & the King, King Creosoteâ€¦.and hundreds more.
I’ll be back next week with Scars on 45…they’ve got new material so we’ll be playing it – Wednesday night at 9pm. If you want a sneak preview of their sound, www.scarson45.com
