1/4/19 Alphabet Soup: Full English (SUB) / KTUH Fri. 7-9am

Subbing part of DJ Lovebug's show, playing A-Z of bands from the United Kingdom (English, Welsh, Scottish) ranging from the 90s to early 2000s with some classic bands thrown in. Last minute set, so it isn't as comprehensive, and consisting of either my favourites or the first band that came to mind. One band per letter to try and fit everything before 9am (apologies to the letters Y and Z), meaning many important bands had to be tragically passed over (Placebo, Suede and a lot of the S-bands, Travis, etc.)

Elastica - Connection
Feeder - Insomnia
Gomez - '78 Stone Wobble
