Did you get records for Christmas? We did! They are our very favourite kind of present. So this month on Buffet we play a mix of new releases and stuff we got so – as usual – it’s a spread. You can listen to the show here and here’s the track list:
M.I.A. – Warriors The Twilight Singers – Teenage Wristband Sauna Youth – The Bridge Hinds – Bamboo Ty Segall – Candy Sam Tom Waits – Dog Treat Erykah Badu – The Cell Ben Folds Five – Sky High Savages – Waiting For A Sign Ulrika Spacek – Beta Male The Drones – Cold and Sober Yann Tiersen – Porz Goret
Archers of Loaf – White Trash Heroes
And if you fancy a quick flashback to 2015 our end of year review is also up on Mixcloud. We got to see some great bands and play brilliant music last year, how very lucky we are:
Monotony – Luxury Flats Yo La Tengo – Friday I’m in Love Julia Holter – Feel You Young Fathers – Rain or Shine Neko Case – Somebody Led Me Away

In case you missed this Saturday’s round up of the Leeds Festival on BCB I will be posting some snippets of some of our interviews on this blog. So keep your eyes peeled and ears open over the next few weeks for interviews with Fightstar, Leathal Bizzel, Funeral For A Friend and many more.Â But for today I you can hear me catch up with Jimmy (second from left) from Canadian indie electro outfit Metric.
All giddy and excited because this is my first post – am probably blogging on the wrong bit of the page but sure you’ll forgive me.Â
Just in case you’ve not sampled the delights of The BCB Sessions let me tell you what it’s all about. EveryÂ Wednesday night at 9pm,Â I serve up an exclusive session from a band or artist based in or playing in West Yorks, plus a choice selection of new and alternative releases. We’ve had over 100 sessions – so too many to mention here but recent guestsÂ include King Creosote, Freyed Knot, Red Wire, My Latest Novel, Stricken City, The Lodger, vAndal supreMe, The Little Black Hearts, Ann Drury, justDEFY….
Our autumn sessions are shaping up rather nicely too with sessions on the way fromÂ Disco Machine Gun (next week Wed 2nd Sept), Willard Grant Conspiracy, Meet Me In Vegas, Brigada Mercy & others I can’t reveal quite yet -Â check out the blog in a few weeks.
So come and tune your ear into 106.6fm on Wednesday nights. If you’re outside of Bradford (or on the wrong side of a big hill)Â then listen in over the net. Might play you a request….
