Radio, Radio!

Just in from recording a session with Tim Moon for the Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB) Folk Show. There’s an interview and three live songs- ‘Coal Not Dole‘, ‘Summer Fields & Riot Shields‘ and ‘Starve Us Back To Work‘….all from the new album ‘NEVER BE DEFEATED‘- and the session is scheduled for broadcast on Monday 25th January.

In other radio news, the wonderful Mike Harding played ‘Standing By My Man‘ (from the same album and featuring the incredible vocals of Rebekah Findlay) on his Folk Show last Sunday. The podcast is available to stream at:

and look out for some great songs, especially stunners by Conor O’Sullivan and Grace Griffith. As ever, Mike’s support is very much appreciated in these parts. He has been playing my songs for five years now and the airplay has been instrumental in spreading the word. Great news.

This followed on from BBC Introducing Humberside playing ‘The Day The War Came Home‘ on 9th January. Again, Alan Raw and the gang have been incredible support over the years and the podcast is available here:

This came a week after BBC Introducing West Yorkshire played ‘Summer Fields & Riot Shields‘ on their show…..it has been an amazing few weeks. The show plays at:

Just time to thank them for including ‘Mean When The Money’s Gone‘ in the 2015 playlist broadcast at the back end of last year and available to stream at:

The BCB session was a first live outing for ‘Coal Not Dole‘ and ‘Starve Us Back To Work‘ ahead of the album launch gig at Stainforth Pit Club on February 6th. Great to have them under my belt, they feel like old friends already.

Next up, is yet more radio. This time a session for the Vixen 101 Fox’s Den Show on Friday January 22nd.

I love radio.
