Tonight I was joined in the studio by Mike Darrah for his second solo appearance on the show. Darrah recently followed up his debut solo single Can’t Tax the Sun with Stars, available now from download sites, and since he last joined us in June, has been putting together a live band for upcoming shows. The first of those is on December 2nd when he appears at Chinnerys in Southend supporting Asylums, and he’s back there on the 23rd, and inbetween he’ll be playing Southend Central Station on Dec 9th in aid of Avenue Child Contact Centre.
