Radio Kampus. 23rd August 2017

While the cat’s away, the mice will play… My girlfriend is in Germany for this week so I’ve been using the time wisely… listening to records, and recording demos for a possible new album in the future. Exciting times. I’ll be delighted when she gets back though, especially to share some of the silly songs. Anyways, onwards…

Radio Kampus. 9th August 2017

It’s become a slightly annoying trait over the last month or so that the podcasts have been getting later and later – this very one is 3 weeks late, and once I get it up, I’ve another two to get up. So I owe the world – or more specifically, the small band of listeners – an apology.

This show features some great new music including Mr. Postal Service covering Bellshill’s finest; and in memoriam; something from Glen Campbell.

9. Daughter – Burn It Down (Glassnote)

10. Glen Campbell – Wichita Lineman (Capitol)
