A change of venue

I was intending to do my monthly show for Radio 4A tomorrow, Thursday 25th June. However, it didn't work out. I will not be doing another show for them.
The fantastic news is that I have a slot on my favourite radio station WFMU, on their internet stream 'Give the Drummer a Radio', starting at the end of September. It will be weekly, and live, with a live chat stream.
 I will be doing a couple of teaser shows on Tuesday 21st and Tuesday 28th of July, 3-5pm (New York time).
My show proper will begin on Tuesday 28th September, also 3-5pm. All the shows are archived, so there is a listen again feature, and it would be great if you could join me live and join in with the chat stream.

Meanwhile, here are my 3 picks for the month....music you must buy right now because it's so wonderful.
Eula - Wool Sucking  CD/Vinyl/Digital on Famous Sounds Records
Felix Leband - Deaf Safari  CD/Vinyl/Digital on Compost Records
Fucked Up - Year Of The Hare  Vinyl/Digital on Deathwish Records

See you next month.
