That about says it all but a special shout out to https://www.walesgoespop.com/  (Wales Goes Pop 2022) an event that occurred two weeks ago in Cardiff that features only the finest in indie pop. This broadcast has 14 songs and artists devoted to this yearly event. We have a few new releases too, a psychedelic set requested by a long time local listener and British Artists covering The Beach Boys? Cheers, Gene

Back in 2005, they had their doubts. Some said they’d last forever. Alas, Compact Discs continue to survive and thrive along with WRIR and The British Breakfast! Thanks for donating!

Last week, I went to Scotland. We traversed up and down and all around the Scottish Borders. I heard songs and other songs I just heard in my head and went to a cool record store in Dunbar (Psst Green Cat Record Shop). This show consists of those memories and a few new releases by the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Mush, Cate Le Bon, Jetstream Pony and Pictish Trail. Cheers

 

PS: Last afternoon in Scotland spent at the windy Promenade at Portobello Beach. Picture from 1907.
