Power Pop Review Takes to The Airwaves

Yes it's been a long time - it always is - you're probably fed up with the excuses - but this time we have something new & tangible

We have taken our blog to the airwaves and have begun a programme we are calling 'Utterly Timeless'. This affords us the opportunity to feature material which will mix the present with the past to demonstrate that even if you love the pop's golden history of the 60's & 70's there is still much to love (perhaps even more than ever before) about the music of today. Not the commercial claptrap of glossy talent shows, the manufactured boys & girls who over emote in bland, sterile unison - but music that exists in that netherworld below the corporate surface but deserves a dalliance with your lugholes.

Along with our colleague Steven Bate, Mr Qwerty & Debra 47 bring you sumptuous tracks and introduce the new and the interesting in a light-hearted but seriously engaging environment. Steve will also chip in with a little politics to keep us slightly edgy.

Here's our maiden show with playlist

Podcasts will be available soon if you miss the cast or to enable playback of every nuance.
