Hmmm- never got on with Peel myself- he always seemed a little 'too' willing to experiment (Much like Lard over on 6music) but I do like to listen to Lauren Laverne (10am on 6) and I make a point to catch up with the Electric Ladyland show (also on 6) and the various new music shows are normally good there too.

Well, yeah. There was also his obsession with "The Mighty Fall" to contend with, a band with which he was seemingly incapable of having any sense of critical discernment.

Although I'm reading Steve Hanley's book at the moment, and it's pretty funny.

I, Cosh

I need some suggestions of where I can hear new music.

I don't like radio as a rule, but used to listen to Peel obviously. There's no real alternative around that I can find, apart from maybe Marc Riley on Radio Six, and that's almost always shit.
Tom Ravenscroft on Radio 6 on Friday night. He's a terrible presenter but I never fail to hear at least one new track that interests or even excites me. Maybe not quite as eclectic as his dad but has similarly wide-ranging tastes.
We never really die.

This one https://thewarlocks.bandcamp.com/album/vevey

For me it works perfect as both a best of as well as colossal sounding live album.

Thanks, will give that a go
