I must admit (in a rare display of ass-kissery) that one of my favourite radio shows at the moment has to be Guy Garvey's Payola on Sundays at 3pm on XFM. I was a bit dubious at first, but upon tuning into his first show to be greeted with a Genesis prog special, I was interested, but it was when he announced "you're tuned into 97.7 XFM Manchester, the coolest radio station in the world. My name is Guy Garvey, and I've just played Genesis. And you know what? There's nothing you can do about it." A grand fuck you to all if there ever was one.

Yesterday, Liam Frost guested on his show which was recorded in his flat. Frosty was suitably ace, as were the tunes. For those of you that aren't lucky enough to live in Manchester, you might be able to listen online here. Check it out.
