Featured Artists

Here's a few tracks featured on Thursday night's show:

First up is Tom Robinson's Atmospherics: Listen To The Radio that appeared on his album Hope & Glory. That entire album and some additional material is available for free on Tom's website. The Pukka Orchestra did a great cover of this back in the 80's as well.

Here's what Tom had to say on his free download page - interesting to know the split of the proceeds from downloads (based on UK iTunes pricing)!

Free Downloads: iTunes downloads cost 79p per track. Writer/publisher get 6p, Performer 6-8p, Visa/Mastercard 7p, Apple 12p, and Record Company almost 50p. Sod that. Help yourself to my songs & share them with your friends: right-click (Mac: ctrl-click) on titles to download. Optional: if you'd like to help with hosting costs, click below

Thank you. Any chance you'll ever post the entire Tonio K LP?

Thanks for the comment. I just have that single from the ' Just Can't Get Enough: New Wave Hits of the 80's' CD's so I can't post the full album as I don't have it.
