It’s radio day today. This morning Leigh and I had a lovely conversation about Swedish Pop for the next instalment of the Unpopular Tangents slot for her Sydney radio show. Not sure when it will broadcast. Probably on Tuesday 16th September… I will post when it’s going live, and then when it’s available as a podcast.
This afternoon, meanwhile, it’s the next ‘ This Is Pop’ show for Phonic FM. Lots of great tunes to spin, including new stuff from Herman Dune, Ballboy, Fujiya and Miyaki, Stereolab, Phil Wilson, Northern Portrait, Summer Cats, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and of Montreal. Plus some great old treats from Trash Can Sinatras, Associates, Black Star and Strange Fruit Project. I’ve been particularly excited by Strange Fruit Project recently. I only just picked up on their releases in the last month or so, which shows how much I pay attention to the Hip Hop world. But the records are so glorious. I’ve been digging them so much.
