The Songs That Remind You: Bruck Program 2014/'15

I recently posted about an episode of BBC Radio Orkney's Bruck Program. During the 2014/'15 season, I heard four songs on Bruck that really jumped out at me. The first was Rock - Paper - Scissors by Katzenjammer.

At some point in the year - I forget when - the lads played Red Eyes by The War on Drugs. The lyrics are sort of incomprehensible, but the music is great, and the video is pretty entertaining without being too ostentatious.

In January, there was a bit of a kerfuffle! The folks at Radio Orkney credit themselves with popularizing the Irish country singer Nathan Carter. Dave and Robbie attempted to play his cover of Bob Dylan's Wagon Wheel, but accidentally played Darius Rucker's cover instead!

You can check out Nathan Carter's version of Wagon Wheel here. At any rate, as I alluded to in a recent post, Dave and Andrew played The Flying Burrito Bros.' cover of The Dark End of the Street in February, during the Vesta Chow Mein episode.

Finally, on the final Bruck Program of the 2014/'15 season, the Robbie and Fionn played Push For The Stride by the British country music singing sisters Ward Thomas.

With the last Bruck Program of the season out of the way, we'll have to wait a few more months before the studio on Castle Street resonates with more great music. I look forward to it!
