Which we loving rebroadcast later on-air….this year we had Tenek and Republica….along with some bands who had only been together formally for a few months; in one case…. Such a great selections this year.

The Creative Sessions took place at the Brentwood centre, and was over Saturday and Sunday…Bands were interviewed live on air and you can listen again, as they are to be found on the main part of the website and soon we will have specially shot hi-res videos …..Please keep checking into the main site.
