Here you go then, the final selection from me before Christmas. It looks already as though next year is going to be just as good for music as this year has been with new releases scheduled (and in this program) from the likes of Low, Kristin Hersh, Explosions In The Sky, Little Man Tate and Jesu to name but five. I am toying with the idea of putting together a program of all the tunes which have given me the most pleasure this year. I know that it's not exactly an original thing to do but quite frankly...who cares. This isn't a request show but if you have any suggestions for such a program let me know and I'll see what I can do but bear in mind this is all subject to not being too busy between Chrismas and New Year. Talking of which I'm going to be in Exeter on the night of the 27th. Can anyone suggest a decent gig or maybe just the best place for a northerner to get drunk.
