The Alex Fletcher Show – back on the airwaves

I’m finally back on the airwaves after a year or so’s hiatus and all my fears about being totally out of touch with all things ‘good’ music-wise, thankfully, seemed to have vanished.

I truly believe this year is a fantastic year for new music, especially as we’re now starting to see the back of the recession. Labels seem to taking a few more gambles with new bands and artists, and that in turn has made me more enthusiastic than ever about picking and playing new tracks every week.
