around the clock around the world

Lots of live music this weekend. The Tony Currie Show features a studio session from Glasgow band Haight-Ashbury and as well as talking about their music, the band will perform tracks from their forthcoming album. Not to be outdone, John Cavanagh has Gayle Brogan aka Pefkin doing a live session on this weekend's Soundwave with tracks from her new album.

This week's edition of The Lively Lounge is mostly in Quadraphonic sound, so if you have an old SQ or QS quad decoder lying in the attic somewhere, now's the time to dig it out. Some tracks in the programme will be Sony-SQ encoded and some Sansui-QS encoded. Tune in on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Thursday, and do let us know how you get on!

Coming up next month we'll be revealing our Festive programme schedule. And of course you will soon be able to download a printable copy of our December programme guide, Radio News with all the details. Details below; look out for it at the end of this month.
