Isle of Wight Festival 2018 - Manic Street Preachers
A good lengthy set with some from their latest album, which seems to have been more of a success than usual, and many from their early days, and their peak period.

Top of the Pops - 1986 Big Hits
Some degree of complementing the other prog, with Five Star, the Bangles and Kim Wilde turning up here, but no Pet Shop Boys. I get they might get more from 1987 or 1988, but not even West End Girls? For shame, lads!

First Night of the Proms 2018
Well, here we go again for the next 2 months. This show started with a tribute to newly-deceased Oliver Knussen, then pieces by Vaughn Williams, Holst (the entire Planets Suite) and finally a premiere from Anna Meredith of "Five Telegrams", which connects to the centenary of the end of WW1.

Gary Barlow - Live at Eden
A recent gig, presumably, with many Take That songs, and a few from his own career.

When Cheryl Met Liam
A celebritised biog of the Girls Aloud and One Direction members whose relationship has just ended. Cheryl provided more material because she is older and busier.

Belladrum 2017 - Cridhe Tartan - Lucy May
Probably the last of these, an acoustic turn of her song Whirlwind.

Secret Knowledge: Stradivarius and Me
Clemency Burton-Hill tells the tale of Antonio Stradivari, whose 17th century violin-making set a standard which has never quite been matched, and who kept his process a secret. There was a 2013 exhibition of some of his violins at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford which was the backdrop to this prog.

BBC Young Musician at 40, at the Proms 2018
Clem again presented here with a busy programme from works by Reich, Saint-Saens, Ravel and Mussorgsky offered opportunities to show off the talents of many previous winners, from Nicola Benedetti and Natalie Klein, to Sheku Kanneh-Mason and current winner Lauren Zhang.

Head
The Monkees' film opus from 50 years ago, which fits in half a dozen songs, some to special sequences, some which work better than others.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Annie Lennox
Although a couple of her Eurythmics videos were discussed (mainly the gender antics of Who's That Girl?) but mostly it covered her work with Sophie Muller on the Diva singles like Little Bird (with Annie met by past images), Why (the artistry of a woman looking in her own mirror) and Walking On Broken Glass (perhaps most famous for including Hugh Laurie and John Malkovich).

BBC Proms 2018: Jacob Collier and Friends
Collier seems to be a bright young thing and an insufferable prick at the same time. He brought on guests to help him, he threw in covers like As and Blackbird and Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic, and it just felt like 2 hours I was never getting back.

Belladrum 2017 - Cridhe Tartan - Benjamin Francis Leftwich
Unsure if this was a repeat it was that unmemorable. He did an acoustic track called Tilikun.

BBC Proms 2018: Schumann and Boulanger
Clemency Burton-Hall's turn to present, as Thomas Sondergaard conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales through pieces by Boulanger, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Owen and Schumann. Impressive stuff.

1968: A Year of War, Turmoil and Beyond
A reflection of the times 50 years back in films, music and politics. Tracks singled out for special mention included:
Walk Away, Renee - The Four Tops
Mighty Quinn - Manfred Mann
Hello, I Love You - The Doors
Rain and Tears - Aphrodite's Child
I Heard It Through The Grapevine - Marvin Gaye
Light My Fire - Jose Feliciano
All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix Experience
Albatross - Fleetwood Mac
For Once In My Life - Stevie Wonder

noisey: Paris
In 2016, with the aftermath of the Bataclan and Charlie Hebdo tragedies, Zach tries to fathom out the riddle of French hip-hop from acts stuck in poor districts of the city, facing police antipathy and harassment, the rise of the Front National, and so on.

Video Killed the Radio Star: Paul Weller
Paul himself talked with Tim Pope, who directed most if not all of the Style Council videos, it seems. Paul seemed fond of those days, even if he clearly has no interest in reviving that music. Many silly video ideas were excused simply because the band project was a reaction against the Jam, and if dressing up and pratting about was what was called for, then there it was.

BBC Proms 2018: English Elegy
A loose connection of pieces from Hubert Parry, Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughn Williams, with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in full effect. Odd to learn that two of the pieces were getting their debut performances at the Proms.

Festival Express
Amusing 2003 doc about a week-long train trip across Canada, taking in gigs at Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary (with a booze stop at Saskatoon), in which acts like the Band, Buddy Guy, Delaney & Bonnie, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, Sha Na Na and more did gigs and jammed the train trip away. Wouldn't you know, the downside was Joe Public moaning at paying $14 to see the gigs and expecting to get in free. Those interviewed spoke fondly more of the train jams, though promote Ken Walker was rueful about the financial disaster it was.

BBC Proms 2018: Pioneers of Sound - The Legacy of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
An interesting effort with the London Contemporary Orchestra paying tributes to Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram among others.

Reginald D Hunter's Songs of the Border
Another well-compiled effort to follow his Songs of the South series from a while back. Here he visited places in Texas, Mexico, Arizona and finally California, meeting acts like Lyle Lovett, Los Texmaniacs, Asleep at the Wheel, Calexico and Los Tucanes de Tijuana. That Arizona already has its own border wall/fence is a surprising reflection on wider news issues.

Halestorm: On Record
Presenter Matt Stocks has known Lizzy and Joe from the band for nearly 9 years now. Their new album was grittier, partly through working with a new producer who wanted them to sound more like they do live. It's their 4th album. They went back to basics in some areas to circumvent a bit of writers' block. They're concerned about social media influences. Their upcoming headline tour will be in bigger venues than their last such in 2012, supported by Avatar. They feel comedy has its place in rock.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Toyah Wilcox
Growing up in Birmingham with dyslexia was tricky, but she was drawn to the rock sounds of the area so she was already a punk by 1975. She respected Godley & Crème for the videos she did with them, was proud to work with Terence Donovan on one, recognised the importance of MTV to help her crack the world. Her tricky 2nd album was a direct attempt to move on.

BBC Proms 2018: Havana Meets Kingston
Mista Savona MC'd a band of musicians reviving memories of Buena Vista Social Club from 20 years ago (that was their stated excuse anyway). Whether Cuba and Jamaica are all that far apart in the first place is another question.

Sounds of the Dolomites
From 2017, a look at an annual festival held in the Trentino region of Italy, over 3 episodes, with presenter Francesco da Mosto talking to native guides, as well as some of the musicians who performed there, from accordionists to cellists. A pleasant change and stunning scenery.

American Valhalla
The story of how Iggy Pop got the hump with the Stooges, and hooked up with Joshua Homme instead. Firstly they worked on an album out at Josh's place near Joshua Tree, then finished it off at his studio in Burbank. Then they agreed to tour the album, which coincided with David Bowie dying. It inspired them even more, and they really enjoyed the whole collaborative experience.

John Bishop - In Conversation With : Will Young
He lives near Vivienne Westwood, and does a weekly podcast about LGBTQ issues with Chris Sweeney. He has issues similar to PTSD, and wonders whether he will keep performing (currently musical theatre is his main focus). He talked of recent suicidal feelings over pressure. He spoke of how winning Pop Idol fulfilled a dream, but he has changed his views on fame. Kevin Godley did the Leave Right Now one-take video. He appeared as a guest on the Parkinson chat show with Judi Dench, and mentioned wanting to do acting, after which he was called in for a film of hers. His photo of choice was of him performing with James Brown, an idol of his, at a concert. They met and performed together again, Brown even snubbing P Diddy at an event because he preferred to sing with Will instead. But Brown did tell him always to dress smart to perform.

BBC Proms 2018: Brahms Requiem
The Reverend Richard Coles presented as the BBC Symphony Orchestra were conducted by Richard Farnes on his debut through a piece by 90 year old Thea Musgrave (on its Proms premiere, written in 1998), and Brahms' German Requiem. The former piece was one of many this season from female composers, and the latter was one of many marking the centenary of the end of WW1. Brahms was described as a "skinny man in a fat man's body". Know the feeling.

Rhod Gilbert's Work Experience: Classical Musician
Welsh stand-up's long-running series in which he tries "real" jobs brought him to join the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on their appearance at the Last Night of the Proms last year, in Singleton Park, Swansea. Rhod, with no discernible musical ability, moved from instrument to instrument, failing at all of them, before finally finding himself on the timpani for a performance of Also Sprach Zarathustra. Was it alright on the night? At the 2nd time of trying it was.

Hollywood in Vienna 2017: Fairy Tales & A Tribute to Danny Elfman
The Wiener Konzerthaus saw the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Shearman and then John Mauceri, through many film pieces from Mulan to Life of Pi to Sommersby to The Nightmare Before Christmas. Quite a pleasant show.

BBC Proms 2018: NYO at the Proms
The National Youth Orchestra got their chance to shine, with pieces by Mussorgsky, Ravel, Ligeti, Debussy, and even conductor for the night Sir George Benjamin.

Kerrang! meets Biffy Clyro
They formed in 1995, and have retained a fierce Scottish fan-base, and still live in Scotland. They started as 15 year olds as Screwfish, and spoke of the mystery over where their band name comes from. They have no plans to write happy songs. Having their song Many of Horror used by the X Factor gave them a mainstream exposure they accepted but would not have purposely sought. They learned the French lyrics so they could cover Tilted. They have fond memories of moments when they knew they were making it such as getting a Thumbs Up from Dave Grohl in Norway. They'll keep playing topless and still value the togetherness of their gang.

Air an Oir / On The Edge
Quirky tribute to the career of Runrig, from 1993, the Gaelic folk legends who coincidentally are putting on their final show tonight (the 18th).

Oasis - Live By The Sea
Live gig fro Southend Cliffs Pavilion in April 1995, with the original line-up still in place, and the 1st album forming the bulk of the set, before an encore cover of I Am The Walrus, sung as if memorised by a machine.

Amelle - My Career in Sugababes and Beyond
Another of these "artist links their career videos' formats, Amelle didn't have much insight to add other than they were almost all her favourites, and the Denial video was very funny to make.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Neil Young
Directors Tim Pope and Julian Temple talked about diverse songs such as People On The Streets, This Note's For You and Harvest Moon. Neil really embraced the value of doing videos, using different styles to achieve memorable complements to his songs.

BBC Proms 2018: Grieg Piano Concerto
Paavo Jarvi conducted the Estonian Festival Orchestra on their Proms debut, which had some Nordic overtones, whether the Grieg piece, or a Sibelius symphony. Soloist Khatia Buniatishvili brought a kinetic energy to the former, and composer Avro Part came on to acknowledge the crowd after the opening piece, one of his symphonies.

Rush - Time Stand Still
Fairly lengthy 2015 tribute to the Canadian legends, strung around their 40th anniversary tour, which also seemed to serve as their farewell tour, some band members becoming too fragile to take it any longer. Their overdue inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and their obsessive fans, were two more topics covered.

Rush - Time Machine 2011 - Live in Cleveland
An impressively lengthy show, most of which I didn't recognise, but which was nevertheless competently done.

BBC Proms 2018: New York Now
Jules Buckley returned to conduct the Heritage Orchestra through many songs performed by Nitty Scott, Sharon van Etten, Hercules & Love Affair, and serpentwithfeet. Good stuff.

Runrig - City of Lights
A gig at the Glasgow Barrowland from 1990, with some chat between songs, presumably again repeated to mark the end of their live career.

Cool Cymru
Part of a series looking at the rise of Welsh bands in the first half of the 1990s, from Manic Street Preachers and Catatonia to Super Furry Animals and 60ft Dolls, plus some who were less successful.

The Royal Air Force - In Concert
From Birmingham Symphony Hall, with DJ Ken Bruce doing MC duties inbetween songs done by an RAF orchestral band.

BBC Proms 2018: Hungarian Gypsy Folk
Ivan Fischer conducts the Budapest Festival Orchestra through works by Liszt and Brahms chiefly. Amusingly the first half is several short-ish pieces, whilst the second half is mainly one long symphony.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Robbie Williams
Vaughan Arnell has worked with Rob on most of his early videos, from Angels and Millennium, through Rock DJ and Supreme. They've shot at the Camden Roundhouse, they've toyed with the world of James Bond and F1, they've been able to use Daryl Hannah as incidental cast. The songs have often been good, too.

The Vamps' Mixtape
They talked through some of their own hits, then celebrated friends and acts they admire or have toured with, from Bruno Mars to Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

BBC Proms 2018: Rattle Conducts Ravel
Sir Simon conducted the London Symphony Orchestra through three pieces by Maurice Ravel, none of which were the Bolero, disappointingly. 

noisey: Las Vegas
I wonder if there are any episodes of this show left to catch. Zach was plunging into the EDM scene, talking to Steve Angelo, Afrojack, Steve Aoki, Armin van Buuren and Tiesto and others. The young audience members seemed to be having a happy, euphoric time, but less so was the local dancer who seemed irate that so many of the top paid superstar DJs weren't local, or even American. Oh well. How long the bubble of the scene may last was another question. 

Belladrum 2016: Cridhe Tartan - Wilko Johnson
Might have missed this before, the loveable Dr Feelgood guitarist is typically charming about his long brush with death, and also how he developed his playing style and stage presence. Plus he has good songs too.

Smashing Hits! the 80s Pop Map of Britain & Ireland
Something of a medley, as Midge Ure and Kim Appleby drive around the country, visiting London, Coventry, Sheffield, Glasgow, Dublin, Rhyl and Manchester to visit assorted names from those areas who came to prominence during the 1980s, from Adam and the Ants and Spandau Ballet, to the Selecter and the Specials, to Heaven 17 and ABC, to Hue and Cry and Altered Images, the Boomtown Rats and Clannad, the Alarm, Swing Out Sister and Five Star, the Happy Mondays and A Guy Called Gerald, S'Express and Soul II Soul. Much of this was very familiar retelling (the middle of the 3 episodes broke down into a repeat of the Band Aid story, since Midge was talking to Bob Geldof). I'm not convinced by the sudden talk of "sophisti-pop" but then it was grounded in possibility. Nice stories, though, for all their familiarity.

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll
Biopic of Ian Dury, with Andy Serkis in vision for once in the star role, ably backed up by Olivia Williams and Naomi Harris as the women in his life. Flashbacks allowed for Ray Winstone and Toby Jones too, and Noel Clarke and Arthur Darvill could be spotted in smaller roles. Quite a decent account.

BBC Proms 2018: Marin Alsop conducts Bernstein
As another part of the ongoing Bernstein centenary celebrations, Alsop conducted the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Alsop knew and learned from "Lenny" so she at least had good motive. They did a couple of his own compositions, then more from Schubert to follow. Apparently it was the BSO debut at the Proms, their first overseas tour in 13 years, but they were established in 1916.

Cool Cymru
Part 2 of this series, dealing with 1996 & 1997. The Manics renewed themselves, Stereophonics started to make waves, Catatonia made early moves, and Gorkys didn't make the grade. Also waffle about the Welsh independence referendum, and the "Cool Cymru" tag.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Prince
Like George Michael, he was hugely smart and musically talented, and his videos show his thoughtful and often playful side. So Raspberry Beret has him in a CSO-unfriendly blue suit, whilst Kiss has him conducting a dual seduction and pulling appropriate faces. At the other extreme, Sign O' The Times is an early lyric video because no image is quite as important as those words. His Superbowl turn in 2007 was a tour de force.

BBC Proms 2018: Andras Schiff plays Bach
ISTR a similar turn in previous years, here one man spent TWO HOURS playing a Bach masterpiece, the Well-Tempered Clavier, book 2, which was technically accomplished I suppose.

Passions: Bernstein by Dame Kiri te Kanawa
Yes, more about Lenny. She worked for him in 1984 on a recording from West Side Story, alongside Jose Carreras, of whom Lenny seemed less thrilled. She spoke to his biographer Humphrey Burton, student Marin Alsop, and a previous collaborator Aled Jones, to share Lenny's life story. He tried to use television to inspire the casual audience, particularly children, and died in the Autumn of 1990.

BBC Proms 2018: Elgar Cello Concerto
Edward Gardner conducted the BBC Symphony Orchestra through reflective pieces again marking the centenary of the end of WW1. The opening short piece was by Lili Boulanger, who died a century ago as well, followed by the Elgar, and then some Vaughn Williams. Considered stuff.

Cool Cymru
Part 3 saw the story move through 1998-9, and chiefly look at how Catatonia struck gold with their novelty anthem Mulder & Scully, whilst Stereophonics consolidated their early success, but 60ft Dolls fell by the wayside.

Mr Eazi's MixTape
He's worked with Giggs, Raye and others, and picked tracks from Stefflon Don, Post Malone and Wizkid. His dream collaboration would involve Jay Z, Drake, Diplo and Rihanna. Who knows?

Live From Abbey Road - Classics - PJ Harvey & John Parish
Firstly from March 2009, the over-rated Harvey in collaborative form, and then latterly from June 2008, the Kills, a more interesting proposition.

BBC Proms 2018: The Tango Prom
Clark Rondell conducted the Britten Sinfonia as they first played familiar Latin rhythms. Then there was a section utilising the Finnish love of the tango. No, really. Then a long run with guest pianist Pablo Ziegler leading further musical magic. Something of an oddity, but still pretty worthwhile.

The South Bank Show Originals: Nick Cave
Melvyn met him in 2003, and he reflected on performers who he classed as survivors, those whose music saves them from addiction (drugs in Nick's case). The young Nick was inspired at the age of 9 by seeing Johnny Cash. His first band, the Birthday Party, were a tough proposition, but the next outfit, the Bad Seeds, worked out a lot better. He lived in Berlin from 1985-90. The Mercy Seat has been a big hit for him (Cash covered it on his final albums).

Pump Up The Bhangra: The Sound of Asian Britain
Likeable Sikh DJ Bobby Friction related how Birmingham and London became the twin hotbeds for Bhangra music, how Alaap and Apna Sangeet were legendary bands, how Romi & Jazz were hoped to be a crossover success but weren't, how Bally Sagoo did get some success with a blended sound, how Pinjabi MC hit on the biggest Bhangra success with Mundian To Bach Ke by sampling the Knight Rider theme, and what the future might hold.

Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History
An 8-part series co-produced by Dwayne Johnson, with each part looking at a different event or social issue, from 9/11 to the Space Race. Commentators varied, and each episode covered a dozen or so records which were associated with each issue, some more surprising than others. Sometimes the topics seemed to need broadening to fit in enough records. Others skipped obvious choices in preference for what I would have said were lesser choices.

BBC Proms 2018: Youssou N'Dour
The Senegalese legend gets to do his stuff, including his big hit 7 Seconds, accompanied by La Super Etoile de Dakar.

Cool Cymru
The 4th & final part of this story covers 2000-1, as Manic Street Preachers went on hiatus so James and Nicky could do solo projects, Catatonia hit the skids, Tom Jones reasserted himself with the Reload album, and Super Furry Animals did a Welsh language album, Mwng.

Leonard Bernstein - Larger Than Life
Another run through the story of the conductor/composer whose centenary passed last month. It was impressive to see so many conductors of note here who tip the hat to the help and inspiration he gave them, as well as many family members, and even Stephen Sondheim. There was an amusing side-note about how he liked to listen to pop music with his kids to try and understand what appealed to them. The Kinks' You Really Got Me turned out to be an example of a Modal tune, which he then used as explanatory in one of his learning shows.

Live From Abbey Road - Classics - John Mayer
Search me. He was amiable enough, really proud of the joy he gets from playing guitar. Shawn Colvin also featured briefly, and amusingly did her turn all by herself.
