The Parish News #311
Episode #311 - due to a series of errors, I made a bad show and had to re-upload it here. I try and cut down on my jibber jabber so there is extra space for the music as we take a trip to the experimental scene in India with Songs For A Tired City having stopped off in Marrakesh for a ceremonial Gnawa track. Other artists include the Copenhagen Clarinet Choir, Moor Mother, Gintas K & Steve Roden - to name a few.

Episode #310 - I think I get away with playing two guilty pleasures in this Episode, but I will let you be the judge. This show also features tracks by Ivor Cutler, Chris Watson, Luc Ferrari, Yann Novak and Oliver Coates, to name a few. There is also escape from the muggy heat of the evening this was recorded when I play a soundscape of Whitby Harbour from 1958.
