Playlist for 07 Apr 2018 (EIO40 special – the newies)

Click here to listen to the show again:

Tonight’s show was the second of two special shows in conjunction with Everything Indie Over 40 – a community for those people who love their old-school indie (and new old-school indie too).

We had requests from a number of the group’s members and I managed to squeeze them all into tonight’s two hour show.

As last week’s show concentrated on oldies we decided to make the second of the two shows a “newies” show – and introduced me to a number of great artists that I don’t usually play, so I think I was the main beneficiary from all the requests!

EIO40 is a website, a Facebook group and a Twitter account. If you love the music I play, go and join them!
