Special guests, a few old and a few new favorites. Louis Jarlov and The Lonesome pop in and play a handful of their songs promoting a set at Cupid Bar this coming Friday at 'Hot and Still Heatin!' - and DJ Miss Dom spins a few to give you further an idea of the flavour that evening will have. Meantime, there's some Vietnam War amongst the old favorites and some Johnny Mile and The Kilometres to keep it fresh. Also brand new Slow Motion Cowboy with a song that's on high rotate in my car and new old vinyl of Warren Zevon and David Lindley back to back. And Sarah Shook and The Disarmers because I haven't heard 'Fuck up' for ages.

Plenty of variety on the show this week, starts off with some oldies, JJ Cale, Michelle Shocked & Dwight Yoakam. Then into The Hacks, White Owl Red and Sleepy Eyes Nelson. Some interesting quite sleazy blues from Israel with Noya Sol, the fantastically dark and lonely Doc Feldman and The LD50 and a cool band called Late Night TV. Went for a rummage through station vinyl and found a Lone Justice LP and a Jason & The Scorchers EP - and unfortunately played them. Some parts of the '80's have not travelled well in this genre! Meanwhile back in the present century, locals Kendal Ellise & Emily Fairlight. A pretty groovy outing in spanish with Gatomajodo. Some Old '97's, Johnny Miles and The Kilometres , Slow Motion Cowboys then back into the station vinyl for The Triffids(!), live recordings of Marlon, Townes and Social Distirtion before returning to the station vinyl which redeemed itself with the very interesting Warumpi Band from Northern Territory Australia. There's more too of course.

Barry Saunders and Delaney Davidson, Kendal Ellise, The Echo Oh's, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Little Feat and a heap more including a test pilot for a show that's all double-barrelled first names, Emmy Lou Harris, Mary Lou Lord and Jessica Lee Wilkes...listen to this space.
