Rapal, on Radio Nan Gaidheal, is the go-to place for music this week – on Monday 7th December at 7pm there are sessions from Charlie Clark and Mother Night .

And again, on Thursday 10th (7pm) Rachel Kennedy chats to Innes Strachan of Niteworks about their new EP, ‘An t-Eilean Remixes’… plus, Cameron Barnes and Blythe Duff (!) talk about their new cover of ‘Fairytale Of New York’.

And worth catching up on, last week’s Rapal featured Lloyd Meredith on
Olive Grove Records‘ 10th Anniversary album ‘Get Into The Grove’

While you’re on the iPlayer or whatever they’re calling it at present, Radio Scotland’s Afternoon Show with Grant Stott last Wednesday featured Arab Strap and Constant Follower (er, and The Nolans as well)

Finally, off the radio and on the web, Tim’s Twitter Listening Party on Saturday, December 12th features Deacon Blue‘s ‘Raintown’- from 8pm.
