Dizzee Rascal - Live @ V Festival 2017
A good little set with material new and old, to great crowd approval.

The Last Pirates - Britain's Rebel DJs
The saga of London's secret broadcasters during the 1980s and beyond, as stations like LWR and Kiss fought for their audience, despite government disapproval. Ultimately, they either were able to go legit, or they dwindled, and made way for successor generations.

Belladrum 2016: Cridhe Tartan - Barbara Dickson
She was joined throughout by Nick Holland, and covered material by Gerry Rafferty, Bob Dylan and Willy Russell during a warm and appreciated set.

Classic Artists: Jethro Tull
A lengthy & in-depth career retrospective, from 2008, talking to Ian Anderson and all the surviving band members and even both halves of Chrysalis Records. The name was a muddled solution which they got stuck with, but their US success helped give them the freedom to develop and change line-ups until they hit paydirt with Aqualung and Thick As A Brick. They had less success in the 1980s, apart from a shock Grammy win. Even those who hadn't always enjoyed being in the band had kind words for Ian.

HARDtalk: Wilko Johnson
The wild guitar hero who faced a death sentence in 2013 from incurable pancreatic cancer, but was saved by getting a 2nd opinion. He was a great positive thinker, so even though he was kicked out of Dr Feelgood just at the point they seemed set to make it big, he had pursued his own course and is soon to play the Royal Albert Hall.

Live With... Hue & Cry
The Scots legends have a new album, Pocketful of Stones, and did a good little set culled from it here, topped and tailed by Looking For Linda and Labour of Love. Always reliable.

Live From Abbey Road - Classics - Alanis Morissette
She did a set in May 2008, and this was bracketed with an even shorter turn from Suzanne Vega from October 2007 where she talked about how Tom's Diner became such a success.

Belladrum 2015 - Cridhe Tartan - Prides
A little longer set than some, not a band I really know, but some good songs here.

Jonas Kaufmann - Tenor For The Ages
He's from Munich, performed at Last Night of the Proms in 2015, has recently been troubled by vocal issues, but keeps a punishing schedule and has many fans. He was described as a "thinking man's tenor with a matinee idol delivery" by Sir Antonio Pappano.

James Arthur - Live @ V Festival 2017
The X Factor winner enjoying a 2nd chance, kept the crowd happy with his recent hits. Working with Rudimental hasn't hurt his chances either.

Live From Abbey Road - Classics - Stereophonics
They came in December 2007. Kelly spoke of how seeing the 7/7 train attacks inspired It Means Nothing, and how line-ups were evolving the band. Richard Ashcroft spoke reverently about the history of Abbey Road, and did Bitter Sweet Symphony in December 2006.

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - Keston Cobblers Club
Still more of these shows slip through (there's dozens apparently, but I've no way of knowing how many I missed). Anyway, KCC are named after something mythically amazing, and they had plenty of good songs. They finished on a cover of The Chain, with the bass break played on a tuba. Heh.

The Vamps - Live @ V Festival 2017
The dreary boyband are apparently onto their 3rd LP, but my interest went long before, and I just think fondly of better boybands of days gone by. They had Zak Abel free to appear and guest on a song, and whose album I see recently entered the chart at #100. Better luck next time, if there is one.

Iggy Pop - Rock en Seine 2016
From the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud park. If I was miffed when the Vamps threw in the odd swear word, that's as nothing to the fact Iggy puts in the f-word inbetween every single fucking song. He seemed to start off at speed with I Wanna Be Your Dog, The Passenger and Lust For Life, and then go backwards to lesser songs, like a man reading a setlist upside down. Oh well, it's a free country.

Live From Abbey Road - Classics - Jamiroquai
Jay dislikes music shows where he's expected to do one song only because he can't work up a vibe. This was from Oct 2006 when he was promoting his High Times compilation. There was also a track from mgmt, from May 2008.

Ceol bho Perthshire Amber - The Paperboys
Another festival, from Perth Concert Hall in 2015, although the titular band shared their time with Martin Carthy and the Maclean Project.

Jacqueline du Pre - A Gift Beyond Words
She died 30 years ago, so this was another lookback over her life, with friends and fans. She was popular, sincere, exuberant, trusting, like a wild mustang. But she got MS. Sad, really.

Live With... Fantastic Negrito
A chap called Xavier, from Oakland in California, with a somewhat forced personality, and some reasonable songs.

Sigala's Mixtape
He came from Norwich, he met Tito Jackson as part of making "Easy Love", he likes colourful, energetic videos (which explains why he gets them all so similar), found it surreal to write with Craig David, has the same manager as Ella Eyre, goes rally driving with John Newman, has respect for DJ Fresh, felt that Clean Bandit revived a 90s sound, loves Ellie Goulding's powerful voice, and reckons Major Lazer's "Lean On" changed a musical mood.

The Fizz - Live at the Water Rats
A mix of old favourites and stuff from their recent album. The replacement Bobby works as a lookalike for the original from a distance. They seem to have a happy combination now.

Lucy Worsley's Nights at the Opera
The historian visited several European cities to talk about 8 significant operas from 8 composers. This inevitably meant Vienna, Venice, Milan, Paris, Dresden and Bayreuth. But some timeless tunes.

XTC - This Is Pop
Andy and the rest of the band talk about how they came together in Swindon, and had a few hit singles and albums, until Andy found fighting Valium addiction was harder than it seemed, and record companies didn't like the sound of a non-touring band. Even the Dukes of Stratosfear side-project wasn't enough. But they endure.

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - Rachel Sermanni
She was making her 5th appearance at the festival, it being the first one she ever went to, back in the day. She was the guitar-playing singer in a 5-piece band. A short set, but I suspect there'll be more to come.

Ball & Boe - Back Together
Michael and Alfie did an album together a year ago, and it sold well, so here's the follow-up. They got special guests Jason Manford and Imelda May on to plug their own albums too. Perhaps the highlight was Mike & Alfie's riff-off, as they sang bits of songs in different genres, like country and rap. I don't doubt there'll be another next year as well.

Joseph Calleja - A Tribute to Mario Lanza
From Vienner, with the Navarra Sinfonia Orquestra conducted by Frederic Chaslin, who run through pieces by several composers, some with Calleja singing, some without. They hold Be My Love back for one of the encores. Somewhat uninspiring, really.

Live From Abbey Road Classics - Snow Patrol
Gary talks of them being gigantic Beatles fans, from their October 2006 turn where they did Chasing Cars and You're All I Have. They'd been going 12 years at this point. They also do Set The Fire To The Third Bar with Martha Wainwright, who came on the show in June 2008 and gets a couple of songs to show for it.

Cuirm @ Celtic - Rant and Julie Fowlis
Short sets from the 2014 Celtic Connections festival. Rant were an instrumental prospect, and therefore scored over the Gaelic singing Fowlis.

Prokofiev - Alexander Nevsky, op.78
A new series of classical concerts, heh, with Valery Gergiev conducting the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra in St Petersburg, marking the 125th anniversary of Prokofiev. Anyway, this was pleasant.

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - Rachel Sermanni
Unlike the previous show she did, this was a backstage set, short and sweet.

MTV Unplugged: Shawn Mendes
Unlike his twin Charlie Puth, Mendes has some songs I can bear to hear, so this was a pleasant enough set.

Lanza - The Best of Everything
A lengthy career piece about how a child prodigy had his talent spotted in the US army, got married and signed to MGM, but began a lifelong battle with weight and good living. He scored big in a film biopic about Enrico Caruso, and had big selling hits, and then a spat with a film director knocked him back a while. His manager lost his money, and he got slagged by purists for not doing opera properly. His health fluctuated, and he died aged just 37. But his legacy lives on.

Prokofiev - Seven, they are 7, op.30
Another burst of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, this time in Moscow.

Larry King Now - Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins
The TLC star has her book "A Sick Life" out, and discussed it with Larry. She's had sickle cell anaemia since birth, and was told she wouldn't live past 30. But she's 47. She and Chili recently released the first new TLC LP for 15 years. She was starstruck when meeting Michael Jackson, who told her she was his fave in the group, which was his fave group. Hmm. She also spoke of her cousin getting shot 18 times by cops, on Sep 20 Shocked Sad

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - Alabama 3
An acoustic backstage burst, notable for them doing "Woke Up This Morning", which I believe has been a big success for them.

Prokofiev - Ivan the Terrible, op.116
A lengthy effort, notable for the use of narration mixing in with the music.

Live With... Jakki Graham
Described as "Wolverhampton's finest", the 80s soul star mixed her own material with covers of Motown stuff like I Say A Little Prayer or For Once In My Life.

Prokofiev - Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution, op.74
Cunningly scheduled for broadcast here during the 100th anniversary, this was otherwise the usual stuff from the usual gang.

Noisey: Seoul
Zach Goldbaum again investigating the world's musical sub-sects, here looking at K-Pop, a government scheme using ersatz hi-nrg stuff, where acts are groomed in factories and wannabes feel sure they have a serious chance of using the system to work for them, rather than the other way around. All this in the shadow of their northern neighbours, too. Pretty depressing, if you ask me.

Free To Rock
A steady hour looking at the way that the Soviet Union slowly thawed to the siren song of rock and roll. Even Mikhail Gorbachev recognised it appealed to kids. Many other Russian rockers were present, and Billy Joel and a couple of Beach Boys were present to recount their own contributions, and I was surprised to learn about Elton John's acoustic Moscow tour in the late 1970s. The Scorpions got their due, and no mention at all of David Hasslehoff.

Prokofiev - Symphony #1 in D Major, op.25
This time in Moscow, but otherwise as the others.

Camilla Cabello's Mixtape
She's #1, so here she was talking about people she's met, worked with or admired, from Bruno Mars and Shawn Mendes, to Machine Gun Kelly and J Balvin, and Major Lazer, Sia and Rihanna. No talk about Fifth Harmony at all.

The Glory of Russia - The Sights and Sounds of St Petersburg
Well, they're big news, what with the centenary and all. Here Renee Fleming talked about the history of Russian music, and the number of famous composers buried in St Petersburg. Oh, and she sang, sometimes with Dmitri Hvorostovsky and with Constantin Orbelian conducting the State Hermitage Orchestra.

Sheridan
Actress Sheridan Smith bows to the inevitable and makes a show to plug her 1st album, and is interviewed by Alexander Armstrong, on much the same circuit. The gloss has come off her story a bit in the past few years, and singing Crazy just reminds you that Petula Clark already did that. She might win awards and have a great voice, but it all feels a bit unnecessary.

Prokofiev - Symphony #2 in D Minor, op.40
Still in Moscow here, in April 2016.

The Great Songwriters - Rickie Lee Jones
How to get an hour out of one notable hit (and being sampled by the Orb). She started song-writing young, and her parents taught her different styles of songs. She worked as an act singing covers, progressed from there, was signed to a contract soon after being made homeless, had to deal with tough times and addictions, but clearly still sings happily enough.

Prokofiev - Symphony #3 in C Minor, op.44
In St Petersburg this time, lively stuff.

Tiree Music Festival - Sharon Shannon & Skerryvore
The latter band were the main act, really, as some of them were from the area, but Sharon joined them on her piano accordion for a few numbers. Quite good.

Children In Need Rock The 80s
A special concert to encourage charitable giving, with Bananarama, Erasure, OMD and Jason Donovan belting out some of their hits, a-ha doing an acoustic version of Take On Me (as I believe they're pushing an acoustic album of their own), a caped Mica Paris did none of her own but did get to cover Madonna, Tina Turner & Michael Jackson, whilst Boy George did Purple Rain, and Europe, of all people, did the finale. Somewhat as mad as the decade it celebrated.

Prokofiev - Symphony #4 in C Major, op.47
Still in St Petersburg, still a few more of these to go.

MTV WorldStage: a-ha Unplugged
From somewhere in Norway on 2 nights in June of this year, and with a couple of guests, it was Morten, Mags & Pal doing their acoustic thing. Though their 2 biggest hits are justifiably remembered, I find I'm more drawn to the lesser heard ones like their Bond theme.

Perthshire Amber - Mischa MacPherson Trio
A short set from this celtic outfit, at Blairgowrie Town Hall.

Prokofiev - Symphony #5 in B Flat Major, op.100
Still in St Petersburg for this one, good stuff.

Live at Eden - Van Morrison
A summery gig with him plugging his then-forthcoming new LP, and playing many of his old hits, to crowd delight. Despite his truculent reputation, he does have a little fun with it.

Showstoppers at the BBC
Another hour compilation of usual suspects like Joe Cocker or Mahalia Jackson, but with the odd surprise like Jeff Buckley and Mary J Blige.

Tiree Music Festival - Red Hot Chili Pipers
It took until the 2nd song until I realise my mistake, but they were a good bunch anyway, and had some interesting covers in their "bagrock" material.

Prokofiev - Symphony #6 in E Flat Minor, op.111
The usual set-up, in St Petersburg, this piece is apparently an elegy for the tragedies of WW2.

The Great Songwriters: The Flaming Lips
To be precise, Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd. Coyne was from Oklahoma, Drozd moved there. They didn't expect the band would last 35 years. They talked about the impact of punk in making music seem a more possible life. They sang 4 songs, happily including the 2 I like, Do You Realise? and Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, Pt 1. They were delighted to find crowds responded to their sometimes esoteric stage shows, and keep all the past props should they be needed again.

Live With... Newton Faulkner
I would have sworn I'd seen this before. He does Dream Catch Me and other material from his latest album.

Prokofiev - Symphony #7 in C Sharp Minor, op.131
As ever in St Petersburg, this was his final symphony before his death in 1952.

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - Gruff Rhys
The former frontman of Super Furry Animals, here doing a short acoustic set wholly in his native Welsh. Pleasant enough.

Tiree Music Festival - Blazin' Fiddles
A return gig in 2016, having last played there in 2012. They spoke of how the scene had changed over the past decade, as new acts come in who are slicker. But they were entertaining enough in their way.

Crooners at the BBC
Another hour compilation from the obvious like Crosby and Sinatra, down to more modern voices like Lana Del Ray and Josh Homme. I might have thought Brandon Flowers deserved inclusion, but there it is.

Prokofiev - Symphony-Concerto in E Minor, op.125
Still in St Petersburg, this piece was notable for Alexander Ramm on the cello.

Passions: Barry Humphries on The Music Hitler Banned
Australian comedian discusses the Weimar culture, dada art movement, and avant-garde composers like Kurt Weill, EW Korngold and Wilhelm Grosz. The film Cabaret was of course inspired by these times. But the Nazis saw them as degenerates, and those who did not see the writing on the wall, met with a terrible destiny. Humphries' celebration of their music at least shows they won in the long run.

Ceol bho Perthshire Amber - Dougie MacLean
A couple of acoustic numbers from Dunkeld Cathedral. A curious little schedule filler.

Prokofiev - Scythian Suite, op.20
In Moscow this time, a piece ostensibly influenced by Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, although you'd perhaps need to be more familiar with it to know.

Skipinnish aig Barrowland
A Scottish bunch hit the big time in Glasgow, and get an entertaining hour of performance material, and band members have names like Norrie and Angus, and they get special guests from other Scottish bands like Runrig. I thought it was quite good.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto #1 in D Flat Major, op.10
Denis Kozhukhin handled the piano work whilst the rest of the gang were in Moscow.

Passions: Chi-Chi Nwanoku on Samuel Coleridge-Taylor
To my surprise, this turned out to be about an early black classical composer who achieved a few modest successes, but sold some of his rights too cheaply, and died at 37. He's remembered in Croydon, but in few other places. His case apparently helped inspire the Performing Rights Society to protect other composers. Nwanoku is of course the mover behind the Chineke! orchestra.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto #2 in G Minor, op.16
Still in St Petersbiurg for this, with Denis Matsuev doing the honours on the piano, and adding a little encore at the end. Nearly at the end of this series.

Gregory Porter's Popular Voices
Three hours to divide singers into Showstoppers, Crooners and Truth Tellers. The bottom line is that Greg likes Nat King Cole, and his new album reflects that. Otherwise this series touched a lot of the usual bases.

The Great Songwriters: Noel Gallagher
There was a mysterious acoustic guitar in his house, and the rest was history. Once he wrote Live Forever, he realised how bad his previous songs had been. He was surprised that Don't Look Back In Anger has taken on a life of its own, particularly in relation to the Manchester Arena attacks back in May. He's worked with David Holmes on his latest album (#1 this very week), and Holmes kept pushing him to come up with something new and different, for which Noel was eventually grateful. He considers himself among the dwindling band of proper songwriters left (Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and Paul McCartney included). He's always good thoughtful copy.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto #3 in C Major, op.26
Still in St Petersburg, with Daniil Trifonov on the piano. There's part of this about 1/3 of the way in that sounded very familiar, but I can't think why.

Ceol bho Perthshire Amber - The MacLean Project
A short burst from Perth Concert Hall, from 2014, pleasant enough.

Truth Tellers at the BBC
The last of these compilations accompanying the Gregory Porter series, with some expected names here (Dylan, Cohen, Scott-Heron), and some less expected (Winehouse, KanYe, Pulp).

Twenty Feet From Stardom
A documentary film about background singers, Merry Clayton and Darlene Love, people like that. Top-line stars like Sting and Bruce Springsteen spoke warmly of their contribution, though many had tried to cross the line to become stars in their own right (Lisa Fischer, Tata Vega) and failed through no fault of their own.

Tiree Music Festival - The Levellers
A steady set in 2016, from a reliable bunch who've not troubled the charts much for a long time, but still have the drive and the songs to succeed live.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto #4 in B Flat Major, op.53
Still in St Petersburg, but nearly at the end of the series. Sergei Redkin did the piano honours this time.

Lang Lang's New York Rhapsody
A quirky showcase of artistes like Suzanne Vega and Rufus Wainwright, on various NY tunes from old favourites like Somewhere, to more recent efforts like Empire State of Mind. A pleasant enough performance from May 2016.

Belladrum 2016 - Cridhe Tartan - C Duncan
A short acoustic burst from a Scottish threepiece. Nice enough.

Live at Eden: Bastille
The third of these shows from the summer, they're an odd lot who I often feel I don't really get.

Passions: Puccini by Andrea Colombini
The conductor from Lucca examines the life of the composer from Lucca, as a prelude to his own staging of Puccini's La Boheme. The 2nd half was about the show, so at least scored for novelty. Puccini was a night-time composer and a ladies man.

Storyville: Liberation Day
The story of how Slovenian art-rockers Laibach were invited to do a gig inside North Korea, in August 2015, and the strife it took to happen through preparations, publicity, practice, technical tensions, their choice of cover versions, censorship, and ultimately the concert.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto #5, op.55
Still in St Petersburg, this time with Vadym Kholodenko on the piano, in April 2016.

Mike Aremu - Live at Jazz Café
From 2013, with Mike promoting his Coat of Many Colours album, being the head of a 12 piece band, and the word Skatajabajantise. Quite. The music was fine, and his backing singers were clearly good too.

Larry King Now: Steve Dorff
Larry had his wife Shawn alongside for some reason. Dorff is plugging his book "I Wrote That One Too", talking about how he came to LA in 1972 and went from there. He didn't manage to get Barbra Streisand to record with Willie Nelson. It's harder now to make money from getting songs on albums, only as hit singles. His son Andrew was also a songwriter but died suddenly last December, aged 40. He's never liked jazz, and admires Clive Davis, and Jimmy Webb. He was a self taught pianist. He came across Whitney Houston at the start of his career, and also wrote for Celine Dion.
