Turn On, Tune In, Move Out

We back. Much is the same, and yet, anew: Tonight we enjoy the very first back-in-studio No Magic. Not exactly “post-pandemic”, because… well. But, post-hiatus. In new surroundings and hoping to enjoy sharing music with you again.

In my time away, I travelled home, heard some music in the car. Moved house, and played some music while packing. And all the while collected “things to play” as and when the chance came about again. Which is now.

We're featuring John Grant's wonderous and cosmic “Boy From Michigan”, which actually came out just as I was going off air the last time. But it's been a persistent play all this time.

    Jones cover of Todd Snider's original, inexplicably and incredibly backed by what can generously be described as a “Radiohead-esque” backing.
