Just when we were about to take an enormous technological step forward (I was going to try playing some vinyl in the studio) the Rare FM server is down again.

So this week's show is postponed.

A Tune a Day

Just thought I'd do a blog as there was no radio show this week (as Rare FM was, as usual, fraught with technical difficulties). Rest assured that there will be one this week: any requests etc, get them in.

In the meantime here is my favourite song from a record I'm really enjoying at the moment:

Great Kinsella-style sparkly guitars etc. Unfortunately it fades out before the end, which is the best bit.
If you like the stuff that Dananananaykroyd, Tubelord etc are doing in the UK at the moment, give their record a listen.

Algernon Cadwallader - Some Kind of Cadwallader at Banquet Records
