LISTEN: Amazing Radio (15 March)

Every year at SXSW, there's a huge presence from overseas. And no contingent is more visible than the British. Pictured above is the British Music Embassy, a club known as Latitude 30 the rest of the year. This is the epicenter for the UK industry during the week and as a result, most bands from Blighty play here at some point. I point this out since this show is the final SXSW preview from yours truly, the humble American of English heritage (Yorkshire). Yes, two previews for DIY Radio and the second of two here for Amazing Radio. Every artist played on the show appeared at SXSW, if not the Embassy, during the past week.

I was in a pretty great mood during this show, so I hope you'll listen and enjoy.  SXSW may have ended but the music endures.
