Latest Beatcroft Social on 60 North Radio: Bongshang to Para Handy via Bryan Ferry and the Bluesbreakers

Here's the Beatcroft Social (incorporating The Museum Of Lost Audio Reproduction) from last night, Saturday 19 November 2016. A few wee hiccups with cassettes and vinyl, but a lot of fun messing about the redundant tech.  You can go straight to the Facebook video, with the outdoor Shetland webcams and cameras inside the studio in Lerwick...

...or, in glorious highly mellifluous stereo and audio only, stream the music from Mixcloud...

Anyway, the full playlist follows. Next show on Saturday, live on Facebook and at (ZE3 stream). And advance warning - from 10 December, the show will be moving to the earlier time of 7.00pm on Saturdays. And we will be LIVE on both Christmas Eve and Hogmanay.
