Some brand new tunes (Amigo the Devil) and some real oldies (Bob & Jimi). An exciting Wednesday cover of Drive By Truckers, more from Colby T Helms and a few strangers wander on into town as well as plenty of our familiar friends and aquaintances who are hanging out in the saloon. And that gorgeous Mel Parsons song that's doing the rounds all over playlist as well.

The great Ryan Adams redemption show. Gave him a shot after a chance encounter with a listener at a party in West Auckland. Played two songs. Still don't like him. Like MJ Lenderman though, so played him and like the track listing on my new shiny record of Neil Young and Crazy Horse 'Dume' - a repackage with exciting bonus tracks of Zuma from 1975, so played a version of Powderfinger you won't have heard. Played the Beyonce country song too - and liked that. Like the new Hurrah for the Riff Raff too. But Ryan's back in the naughty corner for eternity. I tried.

First time back in teh saddle for a bit - some classic oldies, like On The Beach, but also a bunch of fresh as brand new tunes from upcoming albums by Waxahatchee, ISMAY, the quite awesome Chatham County Line, Sarah Jarosz and more. Also, a few tracks off Calexico's Feast of Wire to get you a long to the show in a couple of weeks.

Start the show with catastrophic CD failure, but still grabbed the Be Good Tanyas out of the 95bFM CD library and faced the fear.

New releases mostly from this year, my picks are "Drink From the Well" The Lowlies, "It All Falls Down To the River" Suzy Bogguss, "Coyote" Dylan LeBlanc. And the messianic "Stardust" David Borne there's an accent on the 'e'. Hear new music and enjoy.

"Sweetheart" by Steve Abel is a standout. Bernie Griffen had it in his head in his last week. Along with his own song "Drowning".

New Willy Tea Taylor track, brand newly discovered Olivia Ellen Lloyd, dredging up some BoDeans after hearing it on the soundtrack to The Bear, Magic Factory, Skynyrd and discovering that 'Someday' off Neil Young's Freedom is actually a pretty shit song. Sounds better in my head than on the radio. Townes and Drive By Truckers make up for it though and a killer, KILLER version of Carmelita by Jason Molina.

Got some blues for ya, some great local tunes off the system and handful from the 95bFM vinyl library. Very pleased with how the 'no power to the laptop' situation was handled and discovered perhaps the worst thing joe strummer ever did. you be the judge.

I let Sinead's passing have an effect on the show cos it affected me and I thought it'd sound good. Loretta Lynn, Joan Baez, Hurray for The Riff Raff, Dylan, Eilen Jewel, Allison Russel, Drive by Truckers and more all telling it like it is. Interview with Julian Temple and a bunch of finds out of the bFM vinyl library (Bodeans from the 1980's!) in between and then a strong finish for Ms O'Connor with the Dropkick Murphies and the song Kris Kristofferson wrote for her. What a loss.
