Playlist 02.07.2018

Dear listeners

You may notice that this week's playlist is identical to last week's!
My house move and various other commitments conspired to eat up all the available time.
But the Womad preview and all those up-to-the-minute new releases bear another listen I think. Back live next Monday.

Please contact me if you need my new address for promos etc.
