Best in British Music Show with Tara O.
A Blog & Radio Show on New Indie Music from the UK

All 2009 Podcasts are archived here.

Each podcast below lists the artists played within that show. Each show usually also includes CD release news, artist & industry updates (and my odd rants!)

Note: To give you maximum exposure to artists’ music, I rarely play the same song twice.   So if you’re looking for a particular song, I recommend doing a “search” by song title at the home page.

To listen to the podcast of your choice: Click the show date (e.g., “December 16”).   All podcasts can be played directly from the website or downloaded.  Full playlists are also available for each podcast.
