The Show: Public Service Broadcasting’s Eleven Cities Tour

Elfstedentocht. Eleven Cities Tour.

It’s the world’s biggest ice skating race, taking in the Dutch cities of Leeuwarden, Sneek, IJlst, Sloten, Stavoren, Hindeloopen, Workum, Bolsward, Harlingen, Franeker and Dokkum, but it only happens when all the waterways connecting the cities are frozen to a depth of at least 15cm and the last time that happened was 1997.

That 16 year gap didn’t stop the Explore The North Festival commissioning Joint favourites Public Service Broadcasting to write two brand new songs to accompany archival footage of the event. The results were released on line this week and Elfstedentocht Part One made it onto today’s playlist.

The show: Here comes the summer

We promised you an early summer and as soon as we played the sifty indie tunes the weather closed in and we got some rain. However, right on cue as soon as played the Grandaddy classic “Summer Here Kids” the sun reappeared. Who could ask for more?

The Show: Did we say that we’ve never played Skrillex?

I don’t think we’ve ever played Skrillex on the show before. Maybe that changed today. Does Dog Blood count? If so, sorry Kenny if you’re listening.

Need something to do tonight? Then head along to the Sexy Animals gig at The Wunderbar. Not sure what to expect? The gig poster below might give you some sifty clues…
