Overheard opinions can be a mixed blessing. Who would have thought a pensioner in Rochdale could make such an impact?

Last week we ‘overheard’ Caitlin Rose telling her band mates that the session she’d just done had been “a blast.” Phew! Always good to know the guests are having a good time.

On air, I asked Caitlin if we could play one of her songs again – it was so good. She agreed , but was worried about her performance so she promptly recorded it again. We’ll play you that on the show.

We’ve been so lucky with guests recently but I’m delighted to tell you that, once more, we have a live band in Studio on Friday night. We’ll be joined by the wonderful collective noise that is Wooden Box and a Fistful of Fivers. In case you don’t know, we’ve been playing a wheen of tracks from their debut album and enjoying them hugely.

Not only that but also new music from Jakob Dylan, Bonnie Prince Billy and Avi Buffalo. Plus a very spooky track from Karen Elson. (she’s the one on the left)

There’s loads of the usual things too…….including a very interesting version of this song……

Reasons to Quit
