He really didn't look like he could care less.....after all he had got to sing Libraries gave us power! So all that needed to be said he said. Or sang

He looked like he was out in a barn round the back too....instead of where Kylie was....

This Is Yesterday on Radio 6 (wasn't paying attention, might have been Tom Ravenscroft's show, or the one before that!)

It sounded lovely.

Amy MacDonald chose Tolerate as one of her Tracks of Her Years on Ken Bruces show. Also I think I heard something about the band playing on Chris Evans show in the near future.

"Masses Against The Classes" was played on 6 Music this morning just after the 7.30 news! Now that's a tune to wake up to.

How relaxed did james sound? Worth a listen if you want to hear him go into a rant about how much
he hated michael crawford, the word 'barnum' and blaming the bbc for losing their cardiff studio (only in jest).

Heard "Hold Me Like a Heaven" earlier on the radio on the way home. It started on the "Tattered manifestos ..." line like it did on the One Show, so I'm guessing that is the single version?

On Tuesday, I listened to Graham Norton's radio programme on iPlayer. It was an episode from the 26th of May. And they played International Blue.
