XHM #222 - "Six string summer stretch" (2014 July 14)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Guest James Benton joins me as we listen to plenty of greasy, gnarly guitars, leading to a profile on the jazz guitarist Sonny Sharrock.

It's always a blast to have a visitor in the studio; James aspires to have his own show at CITR some day and I'm sure he'll represent Brummie nicely.

All apologies for not mentioning Higamos Hogamos on air.
