Gilded Palace Radio Show (Jan 13th 2014)

Welcome to the first show of 2014. Not only are there a clutch of great albums for this year already (Jason Eady, Chris Mills, Damien Jurado) but I also appear to have spent the holidays turning up fantastic records I missed in 2013... can't stop playing Shelby Earl, Brandy Clark and the latest Christian Kjellvander. And why haven't I listened to Matt The Electrician before now...?
No good music around nowadays? Don't you believe it for a minute!

On a more sombre note, the show kicks off with a tribute to Will Indian, who passed away a couple of days ago. Will played guitar for James 'Slim' Hand (and Cornell Hurd) and I was lucky enough to not only get to watch him play, but also to travel with him for a few days on James' debut UK tour. Fond memories of a search for "the ultimate balti" in Birmingham, me losing five Texans in full Western dress at Oxford M40 service station (they should have stuck out like a sore thumb, right?). He was a great guitar player and a good (and funny) man. Our thoughts are with his family and his (and our) friends Slim, Speedy and Rusty. There's a nice tribute over at Saving Country Music. RIP Will.

Finally, if you've ever had trouble streaming the show in the past, you'll be pleased to hear that the new Totally Radio site is now up and running. Not only does it feature a completely new look, but you can also stream ANY recent show directly from its own dedicated page. We're catching up :-) Even got a Facebook page...
