PODCAST: Cool Cymru on the Midnight Special

A special Welsh music special of the Midnight special looking at the coolest of Cymru from the 80s through to now. Let me take you on a tour through the land of song with pop, hip hop, psychedelic, post punk, no wave, new wave, rock, dub, post rock, and a terrible Australian accent.

Special special thanks to the Midnight Special for having me, Welsh friends and their endless knowledge and talent for their guidance, and to Alexis Late for keeping me company off-mic.
