Time: 10:00am

I put this show together fairly haphazardly, I just let my iPod shuffle along and decide what song was next, so occasionally the mixing isn’t super slick. Also, I became aware halfway through that my speech patterns and links were sounding a bit a bad John Peel impersonator - which wasn’t helped when Ivor Cutler popped up for a song. I enjoyed doing it a lot though and it’s a good show, full of music I love. I’m glad too many of my own songs didn’t appear. I also glad the dog sleeping at my feet didn’t wake up and bark howl along to the music.
