This week’s show is probably a little slower than normal, but the range of music should give you something to take away and savour. To whet your appetite I’m going to play a couple of songs from Wellington’s Blue Jean Baby, and guitarist and arranger Jo Smith (who is also an economist) will join us for a chat.

Show 12 also features:

  • Three of French for Rabbits’s exquisitely-crafted pieces for piano and guitar;
  • Tiny Ruins;
  • Vibraslappy goodness from Castlecliff Lights;
  • Some sample-filled originals from The Bathtub Sophist;
  • An ode to cut and paste songmaking called Loop Your Mistakes;
  • Two daring covers of well-known New Zealand songs;
  • A song fill of self-pity in the key of D minor that was a hit in 1980 …

Tune in and join in!
