Bob Cocker ,

Wonderfully eclectic

This great show plays always fascinating, and usually excellent, musical nuggets from the more obscure reaches of the sonic sphere. Effective format, charming banter and a refreshingly global focus. Have had my ears opened to lots of great stuff through this pod.
