The Richy & Jeff Show #18

Robert WyattEpisode 18 – TAKE TWO!!!

Richy screwed up when we tried to record this episode last week, so this is us trying again (and getting it right, thankfully!)

It’s been a busy few weeks, so loads to talk about – techno all-dayers, an unexpectedly great (but odd) gig, Richy ‘promoting’ the first UK gig by one of his favourite acts and a trip to the smoke for Richy’s birthday to see one of Jeff’s faves Heaven 17.

For this episode’s old tunes, Jeff celebrates his return by choosing a hit from one of his favourite acts (who he saw play live last week). Richy chooses a slice of dark electronica by one half of the odd act he saw last week (all gets a bit complicated this sometimes..)

The (not so) Randomizer round throws up a couple of classics, including a beautiful cover version by a much undervalued British great.

Jeff’s new tune comes from a great singer-songwriter that neither of us had heard of before, but who’s riding high in the US Charts and selling out world tours. Late to the party again! Richy plays an album track from a resurgent 80’s super-act.

One last thing to say – last episode was a smash hit, so hopefully we have some new listeners with us – hello to you! And thanks to DJ Mark Cooper for stepping in to fill Jeff’s shoes at last minute. Much appreciated mate.

We’ll be back on schedule so look out for Episode 19 next week – let us know what you think of this week’s shambles!

Thanks as always listening!
