Playlist 16.08.2022

On this week’s programme:

Apologies - no time for detailed rundown for next week or two. I’m getting married and things are a bit hectic!

Next week’s programme will be a revision session, checking that you’ve been paying attention 😎- looking back over some key releases from earlier in the year. Then back to the new release schedule in September.

Thanks for listening and enjoy the music.
