"True Stories" gets airplay on BBC Radio 2's Radcliffe & Maconie Show

On last night's Radcliffe & Maconie Show on BBC Radio 2, Mark Radcliffe played "Look Up, Look Down", his favourite track from Martin's new CD, True Stories. We're really pleased that they like it and hope Mark might play it again sometime soon! If you missed the show you can Listen Again on the Radcliffe & Maconie Show page at
PLEASE email your appreciation of the track to the show's producers! The more positive feedback they get, the more likely they are to play it again! If you go to their show page at and click on the Contact button (it's a bit hard to see at first, but don't give up!), you can fill in a form which goes straight to the producers and they DO read all the emails they get.
When Mark chose "Never Any Good' from Martin's previous CD, Prodigal Son, as his Pick Of The Week contender, the response was huge and "Never Any Good" became the listeners's choice too and was played every night for a week! This is a great radio show, which plays a lot of Folk and other not-so-mainstream artists. It's really worth supporting right back and telling them how pleased you are to hear Martin's music! Thanks to all of you who take the time to get in touch with them, it really makes a difference.
