Kathryn Joseph appears on Radio Scotland’s Quay Sessions, Wednesday 16th September, in an archive performance, and Horse also takes part, choosing her favourite live album.

On Wednesday on BBC Alba, Rapal has ‘Doubtlands’ as its Album of the Week – and chatting about it, Mt. Doubt’s frontman Leo Bargery. That’s from 7pm.

This week that nice Tim Burgess is featuring Lloyd Cole and the Commotions in his #TimsTwitterListeningParty series – on Tuesday, September 15th at 10pm, third and final studio album ‘Mainstream’ (if you miss it you can listen again with a real time reply of all the tweets)

And on Thursday, September 17th, it’s the turn of the 1997 debut album from Glasgow three-piece bis – ‘The New Transistor Heroes’ gets the Tim treatment at 8:00 PM.

Oh, ICYMI (we did), The Yummy Fur were in secret session with Marc Riley on 6music on Monday, with guest Robyn Hitchcock too – listen again here.

And a podcast recommendation – Tallah Brash is the subject of episode 5 of ‘I’m Not Here’, a series with promoter and journalist John Paul Mason which has already featured The Twilight Sad’s James Graham, gig rep Dave McGeachan, and Aidan Moffat, talking about their lives in what we’ll loosely term ‘showbiz’.

The second part of JP’s chat with the current music editor with The Skinny magazine (and former Electric Circus promoter, and member of Jesus H. Foxx, amongst other things) can be heard via Spotify or iTunes.
