Get this on Radio 6, NOW :) Easily as good as Cocker or Garvey and playing equally as good and more obscure stuff.


another great mix from Tom Cox. Yes, Holland was the best Beach Boys album - the California Trilogy, Sail on Sailor, Trader and Leaving This Town are some of my favourite songs. Thanks for the great music!
