This week we were delighted to be joined by Micah P Hinson who came in for a chat and also played our 11th Silent Session live in the studio. Our prepared questions went out of the window and we ending up talking about the Queen, American politics, people talking at gigs and much more.Plus, we feature acts selected from our hand-picked gig guide and also those hitting the Silent Radio headlines.This is our weekly audible version of the North’s best independent music website, Silent Radio Show – live every Saturday afternoon 3-5 on Fab Radio International.

‘Accidental Editor’ None of this was planned; I’ve never been in a band, never been part of the ‘music scene’ and never expected to be the gaffer of a music website with loads of dedicated music loving writers. I bought my first record when I was 8 and haven’t stopped buying since. I love crate digging for bizarre and weird stuff, but equally happy ploughing through press releases looking/listening for something I’ve never heard before.
