Too Many Tunes, Too Little Airtime…

Bakelite Radio

Alas we can only fit 30 tracks onto our Listening Post every Friday and my BBC Introducing Mixtape only gets 60 minutes’ airtime on 6 Music. But to give you an idea of the quality of tracks we get sent every Monday to Thursday, here’s a Soundcloud set of 30 further gems we got sent this week that I also enjoyed. They’re all interesting artists and I can pretty much guarantee you’ll find something below – in addition to our latest Listening Post – that’s right up your street!
