OTBT radio show 1 August

It's been a while since I recorded a show but I felt in the mood to do one after listening to Beyond Radio at the weekend which is the new community radio station based in Lancaster. I hope to be doing a folk music show on Beyond but need to attend an induction and training session before they'll let me loose on the airwaves. If you live in the Morecambe Bay area you can tune in on 103.5 FM.

I've also been to a couple of music festivals recently, the Village Pump Folk Festival in Wiltshire and the Cloudspotting festival here in Lancashire, though it may be in Yorkshire now as they've been messing about with the county borders to increase the size of the Dales. But I've included tracks by some of the bands and singers I saw at those festivals.
