Beard Radio 31.3.08

Spring arrives! Beard radio celebrates! 31.3.08

Just me tonight, but a member of the Jacques family will be dropping by next week!

Fire and brimstone country, oceanic disco, Senegalese singer-songwriters, a ten year old free jazz drummer, and some Alaskan post-punk. The latter, I should add, is by the Anaemic Boyfriends. I have no idea if this song is commercially available - came across it a couple of years ago on an internet forum where MP3s of John Peel's singles box were being traded. Beard shall investigate further, because they totally rule. Also! My amazing anecdote about seeing Antony Hegarty in a Glasgow libary...
