On the radio this week… this week’s Quay Sessions on Radio Scotland with Roddy Hart has everyone’s favourite, former Sparrow and the Workshop / bdy_prts mainstay Jill O’Sullivan, playing a live session from her new project Jill Lorean. And, Kevin McDermott shares his favourite live album. That’s on Wednesday April 13th from 8pm.

And on Friday, April 15th, Tim Burgess features Butcher Boy‘s album ‘You Had A Kind Face’ as part of his Twitter Listening Party series, the first vinyl release from the Glasgow act being a compilation of tracks from across their career and available via Pete Paphides’ Needle Mythology label.

Finally, BBC Introducing in Scotland almost always seems to be in arrears i.e. ‘catch-up’, so if you followed last week’s link you’d have discovered that Bemz was voted as their Best New Act of 2022 (I paraphrase). Anyway, the Glasgow rapper and producer was then invited to perform a session for the show, and you can hear it (on catch-up, natch) here.
