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…

This week’s show is a cracker – new music from Alvvays, Hope Sandoval, and FM Belfast; and we mark the return of the KLF. And much more.

It’s been quite a week since our last show – we’ve had another terrorist attack in London and Donald Trump thought the best way of marking that was to criticise the Mayor of London. Sigh. We’ll simply carry on with life and that means a brilliant return from Alvvays and much more tremendous music besides. Enjoy.
