This Friday's show \ Diversity FM news

Tune in at 1pm today for one of the final lunchtime editions of Off The Beaten Tracks. From October there will be major changes to the Diversity FM schedule with specialist music shows like mine being moved to the evening. This will probably mean that all my shows from next month will be pre-recorded.

Today I will be joined by Wes Martin and we'll be playing tracks by Mercury Music Award nominees King Creosote & Jon Hopkins plus some Hayseed Dixie, Jess Thomas and Tom McCarthy.
