Join Kate as she brings you 2 hours of the best unsigned music from the UK and around the world. Each hour has its own theme bringing a very unique show every week. Airs live Tuesdays and repeats Saturdays at 1-3pm Philadelphia, USA (EDT)/ 6-8pm London, UK (BST) on Gashouse Radio
Broadcast on Gashouse Radio Tuesday 3rd and Saturday 7th January 2012
This is part two of the Best (well, my favourite) of 2011, filled with rock, pop, acoustic, ska, nova-romantic, anti-folk, stripped-down punk, electronica, easy-listening, alternative rock, a tiny bit of random jazz and some tunes that just defy categorisation (my favourite and my best).
Next week, we’ll start to explore some of the newest independent music of 2012. The week after (on January 17th) we’ve got Ian Button in the studio (Thrashing Doves, Death in Vegas, David Cronenberg’s Wife and about a dozen other bands) to chat about his adventures in independent music as a musician and a producer.
Complete playlist for this show (and last week’s show) with links to artists’ pages/websites to follow.
Good luck with those New Year’s Resoultions!

Kate’s Sunshinecast Ep8 - Jazz all over your face, with added love and sunshine
Broadcast on Gashouse Radio Tuesday July 19th & Saturday 23rd July 2011
A whole bunch of jazz-tastic tuneage from independent artists based in the UK (and beyond) in the first hour of this show, including a new track from Claire Simone, then some ‘outsider pop’ in the second hour, with tracks from the separate albums of husband and wife musos David Long and Candy Lee Long. We also played a fab track by Paul Hawkins and the Awkward Silences, which is rather excellently available as a free download from bandcamp. If you don’t know what ‘outsider pop’ is check out Paul Hawkins’ Outsiderpop.com website to find out.
