A big year with us for Melissa. With ‘The Medicine Show’ many of our followers and the radio show listeners reconnected with Melissa’s catalogue. An album of the month earlier in the year, ‘The Medicine Show’ was chosen from our 12 Albums of the Month for 2019 to be our Album of the Year. This audio clip includes the moment the album was announced on air – plus a telephone catch up with Melissa from NYC the following week. An album for our times, with something to say – and where it’s the music that is an inclusive, soothing tonic for the challenges we all live with today.
The calm before the new album storm. Monday 20 January, the Rats gather with their coloured sharpies to eat Dundee cake and sign album pre-orders.
