Tonight's show

I was away last week so was unable to post last Monday's playlist though you can always find it on once I've uploaded the show.

Sadly it seems that due to technical issues at Acoustic Spectrum tonight's show will not be going out at 9pm so I shall upload it to Mixcloud earlier than normal.

On the show this week you can hear R.E.M., Dick Gaughan, Franka De Mille, Show of Hands, Cam Penner, Fairport Convention, The Bean Pickers Union, Robyn Hitchcock, The Low Countries, Syd Straw & Evan Dando, Flossie Malavialle & Kate Bush

And the featured album is Beat The Retreat (Songs by Richard Thompson).

Next week's show

I'm just playing back my latest show which will be broadcast on Acoustic Spectrum on Monday the 4th of March. It includes two tracks from the new album 'Toras Dans' by Norwegian musicians Djonne & Borsheim, the latter of whom released an album under the name Annlaug in 2010. There's also a track by Michael Chapman who recently toured the UK with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and some Americana and bluegrass from Jarrod Dickenson, Birds of Chicago and Al Scorch & the Country Soul Ensemble.

Along with the Djonne & Borsheim cd, I've also received new releases by Duncan Wood, Tom Houston, The Chair and The Joe Corrie Project and from across the other side of the pond albums by Matt Woosey Band, Christa Couture and Annie Keating. That'll keep me busy listening to all of those so expect to hear tracks from some or all of those on the next few shows.

I'm off down to Liverpool this evening to see Richard Thompson. Here he is playing a track from his new 'Electric' album.
