The BBC Are Listening To This Shit?

After three solo shows, Erik Petersen finally finished his epic Christmas holiday as far as The Sunday Alternative is concerned. It was good to have him back with me, and I have missed him. We have developed a double act of sorts, and by rights should have our own television show, movie deal, and range of breakfast cereals. But for now, the radio show is the only way we can satisfy our fans.

If my canvassing worked, then someone high up at BBC 6Music was listening tonight, and are beating a path to our door to ask us to do the Saturday 10am-1pm slot.

News: If you like the bantering gibberish between Erik and myself, but feel that the records get in the way and that we need more swearing, then fear not. We are currently making plans to bring out a regular podcast. We will carry on with the podcast when 6Music give us the Saturday gig.

We were joined by Nottingham musician Marc Reeves, who was in to promote his new album and to perform a few tracks.

Erik and I discussed the new range of Sunday Alternative merchandising, in particular the fez, the mystery of 'sos', Spud-U-Like, Whoopie John, and eating crocodiles. Or it might have been alligator. Also, I decided that if we kept banging on about taking the Saturday 10am-1pm slot on BBC 6Music, then eventually someone would believe it and have no choice but to give us the gig.

The setlist is not in the order of songs played, as I made a mess of writing it all down.

Will Fyfe 'I Belong To Glasgow'
The Proclaimers '500 Miles' (both played because it is Burns Night on Wednesday)
New Town Kings 'Brighter Days'
Travis 'Why Does It Always Rain On Me'
Jake Morley 'Feet Don't Fail Me Now'
Kamikaze Test Pilots 'Kenny Rogers With A Shotgun'
Marc Reeves 'Handshakes'

Marc Reeves performing live in session:
'Judgement Day'

Marc Reeves 'Empty'
Billy Connelly 'D.I.V.O.R.C.E'
Primal Scream 'Loaded'
Volcanoes 'Is Anybody There'
