From Nashville Babylon, 11:00 pm on 10 July 2017

On this week's show Mark spins sides from Ray Charles and CW Stoneking, a favourite from London's late 80s live folk-roots scene courtesy of Alias Ron Kavana and a brand new track from Australia's Chesterfield. There's also tunes from Tom Waits, the Handsome Family, Danny & the Champions Of The World plus Wellington's very own Claude Rains.
