Franz Ferdinand's Al Kapranos


June 06, 2011

Time: 8:00pm

  I’m on the train to London right now with my records. The show’s going to be me playing them, drinking wine and talking about them if I feel like it. They’re quite scratched, because I’ve played them a lot, but I’m sure no-one will notice. I might do a phone-in if there’s a phone in the studio. Planned segments are: Classic Depression - taking you through to the small hours of the soul; Luck of The 13th Note - music you never heard from the 90s Glasgow Underworld because you were paying too much attention to Seattle, Camden or somewhere else; Shite Name, Good Tune - self-explanatory & Queen: Did They Deserve To Be Bigger Than They Were? A live reappraisal of this oft-overlooked British quartet with some of today’s Stars if I can find any. It’s going out live isn’t it?
