February 2019 - No Guitars Allowed
An hour of music from lots of instruments apart from the guitar!
At least twenty four non-guitar music makers from accordion to trombone
   and many more in between. There's a silly song on a melodeon,
   an instrumental on fiddle and piano and something called a bandoneon...
The February image is "Riverside" by Rik Middleton.

December 2018 - Trad Song, New Sound

One song with traditional words to a new tune and another, vice versa
An unaccompanied arrangement which still manages to sound modern
A brand new version of a very old song, never heard before
