Bob Meyer who runs the popular ‘Bob’s Folk Show’ on Radio Wey has put together a show for Folk Radio UK featuring some of his choice sessions from the past. This will air on Friday 14th September at 8:00pm. The full broadcast schedule with repeat times is at the end of this article.
This was the first live session that Michele Stodart did for me on Bob’s folk show.
We had not met before but after about ten minutes in her company I felt that we were old friends she has that kind of warmth about her so from then on it was very easy to sit back and just listen to her play. I was a bit worried that Michele’s solo stuff would not stand up to the music she makes with her brother and friends in their band The Magic Numbers, but as you will hear on this session those worries soon went flying out of the studio window.
I first met Pete Greenwood a few years ago at a gig in South London and straight away I became a massive fan of his song writing and his playing and when I got my hands on his first album SIRENS I was blown away, one of my favourite albums ever! Pete’s second album should be out soon and it is as just as good as his first.
Keston Cobblers Club
Keston Cobblers Club would be my tip for the top! They are already getting loads of air play on mainstream radio etc and so they should. This was the first session they did for me and as you will hear their energy and tightness as a band comes through in abundance. Their new album ONE FOR WORDS is stunning and I thoroughly recommend it.
