Andy Shauf on this weeks show!

When was the last time you could hear a pin drop at a gig? For me, it was a fortnight ago. Andy Shauf’s latest album ‘The Party’ got rave reviews, and the sold out crowd that packed out Gulliver’s to see him play live, simply didn’t want to miss a sound..

I chatted to Andy about Canada, clarinets, his writing process, tour entertainment and more on tonights show!

 

Little Cub are on the bandstand this week talking about some of their fave new artists and Dave Brown from Even The Stars is tipping for us! Oh and I’ll have a new #shellshock too courtesy of the awesome Sheffield band The Blinders!..
