Tonight on UKNY at 11, we'll stretch from Sunderland to Edinburgh to New York's Park Avenue Armory with music from School of Language, Smoke Fairies (pictured), the xx, Withered Hand, Forest Swords and Kate Bush. Did you manage to buy a ticket to one of Kate's shows this summer and fall at London's Hammersmith Apollo? If you didn't, you weren't alone—all 77,000 tickets to 22 shows sold out in under 15 minutes on Friday.
Please join me for all sorts of beguiling British releases on UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EST, following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Abandoned the radio for Louis C.K. on "SNL" instead? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
