Aha! A new year – THANK GOD! Yes, we’re unashamedly glad to see the back of 2008 for various reasons, and so its with some excitement that we move into 2009 with new shows for your keen ears.
So, for our first show we bring you the lost indie gods Crane, newness from Thunderheist, the Bomb Squad-esque Paris, insane (and insanely nice) dub from Ranking Dread and even the dubby drums of… Roy Budd. Y’know, he of Get Carter fame. In between all that you also get to hear chatter covering Tom’s 6 degrees of separation from Katy Perry (not to mention Trick’s rank indifference at this revelation), the full explanation of a Filbert, Trick’s potential to be gay and how Tom’s cat was once healed by jazz. What’s not to like eh?!

AKA “Moog & Willies”. With typical technical finesse and the professional presenting abilities of Alan Partridge, we crash into another week with the erstwhile Ed Zed tucked under one arm to bring you another series of selections and banter as only we can. This week differs from usual shows, as Ed steps into Tom’s shoes to handle selection duties – a situation brought about by Tom originally not planning to appear due to gigging commitments with Pama Int’l, only to have it cancelled due to a support slot with The Specials (Pama, not Tom – he wishes!). So, with Ed stepping up with anything from classic Roxanne Shante to a highly obscure piece from Paul Simon (!), this is… well… much like our usual shows, really. We do also stride into the world of advertising as we force Ed to record a voiceover live on-air. The fame! The fame!!

Featured video this week was going to be this rather excellent Richard Edson showreel, but sadly we can’t embed it on this site. So, in its place is Ed’s Golden Earring selection, as it got cut slightly short and is rather ace:
