This, ladies and gentlemen, is a quite splendid podcast.  Not the chat - there's actually blessed little of that for a change - but the actual music.  There may not be the one or two big names I tend to try and slip in to make sure that casual listeners are more likely to have a listen and thus bring an audience to the smaller bands, and also because I quite like to throw in a few for my own benefit as well but it just didn't quite happen.  For some reason they just didn't quite get a look in this week, although I did throw in a rather obscure Pogues track, but it just seemed fine without them.

I really like this one though, and there are some excellent new things to hear, so get stuck in.  It has quite an acoustic folk-pop sort of atmosphere, so I hope that sort of thing is your bag, but I've thrown in a couple of slightly different things, like David Cronenberg's Wife, Mother & the Addicts and A Hawk & a Hacksaw to make sure it's not too one-paced.  So get stuck in, my little Toadlings, music a-plenty and jolly fine stuff too!
