There was so much to load into this month's Podrophenia - rock, roll, punk, blues, dodgy disco and perfect pop we didn't even have the space to squeeze in a theme....

Kev Daintree and Pete Zear swing in to give us the info and spin in Pete's '79 single Tomorrow's World (featuring The Ruts on rhythm section, Alf and Susan Ryder Paget on backing vox) produced by Rat Scabies - which has now been rerecord by tranarchist glam-punks T Bitch

Not-so-Tiny Piley brings us up to speed with his summer travels, train tips and takes over the decks for a couple of recommended records Ian Piley and I pitch in with a disco refit of Pink Floyd, and a cut from the new David Woodcock album Fill up your listening lugs below

Podrophenia - Vinyl Finds and Lucky Dips

Then it's half time change ends while Luke gets to double decking, and Mond' presses playon the laptop.

And there's a niche don't judge a song by it's sleeve. Mayfair Train of Love in this case... ..



Style-wise it's a giddy mix of yacht rock, funky covers, nu-disco, nu-blues, urban grooves, NY Punk revisited and protest funk..
