Gil Scott-Heron drops by with his wonderful apartheid tale of startling depth and beauty. Our Listener Suggestion this week is of such staggering brilliance that it produces a surprise at the very end of the show, just as we thought we were wrapping up.

More
Welcome to another show dear listener. We have some wonderful music this week from Norway's finest JP Paulsen, Annsofi and Jerry Geraldi plus an insight into their Musicians in the Mountains project. Richard gets clotheslined by advertising and brings us Saint Motel, not realising the track he's chosen has had massive airplay on TV (because he doesn't watch TV). We revisit St. Paul and The Broken Bones and Tobin the Lounge Lizard is in the house, with a Cover Shot from Fun Lovin' Criminals...
