The After Eight Show

Music that you just don't hear anywhere else!

This week was our latest #BESTOFTHEBEST compilation where Mark and I each choose our favourite track from the previous ten programmes. So, twenty tracks in all with the minimum of chat in between.
We had #NewMusic from Fridolijn, Beady Belle + Bugge Wesseltoft, Louis The Child+ Ashe, IDER, SEVDALIZA, Lindsey Webster, Lisa Knapp Music, Rohey, Sophie Koh, Everything Is Recorded + Sampha, Lowly, The Blackheart Orchestra and many others. And this week's Switch Dunmow Record of the Week paid tribute to the great Gregg Allman (of the seminal Allman Brothers Band) who sadly passed away at the end of May.

Finally, track two was a fine new slug of Blues by Lenny Henry! He made a documentary for Sky - visiting the homes of his great musical heroes and made a very good album with covers of Blues standards and some new compositions co-wrotten with Jakko Jakszyk (of King Crimson).

Our show, this week, featured some nominees for this year's Grammy Awards(*). But we didn't play Adele, Justin Bieber or Rihanna - you can hear them everywhere else! Instead, we played nominated artists from lesser known categories - Latin Pop (Gaby Moreno), Contemporary Instrumental (Herb Alpert), R&B (Terrace Martin) and Dance/Electronic (Tycho). Plus, as usual, we had lots of #NewMusic by artists who don't get enough airplay on commercial stations or the Big Broadcasting Company. We had NEW releases from J.Views, MALIN ANDERSSON, The Bad Day Blues Band, Kina Grannis, JFDR, Vows, Imaginary Future and others. Plus we paid tribute to the great, and badly missed, John Martyn by playing a fabulous track by the brilliant Claire Martin featuring a duet with John on one of his best songs!
Music that you just don't hear anywhere else!

After the previous week's Best of 2016 compilation, we were back to our usual formula - featuring lots of #NewMusic from artists who don't get enough airplay on commercial stations or the Big Broadcasting Company.
We had *NEW* releases from Abi Ocia, Blu Acid, Duke Hugh, Yeasayer, De-Phazz, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, Cascadia Fault Line, Jacques Greene, Cesium Swimsuit and many others. We paid our own small tribute to one of the truly great and influential Blues giants who died this week in 1976, and our Luvva Cover was a very surprising treatment of one of Kanye West's best known hip hop songs.
Music that you just don't hear anywhere else! Our show now goes out in 2 US radio stations (Fish Creek Radio and Long Beach Community Television and Media Corporation) and, for the very first time this month, a Canadian station in London, Ontario (KB Radio The House Party) so we hope that all of our new listeners enjoy this week's show.
