The Northern Soul Podcast: a month on
Christmas hurrahs! The Northern Soul Podcast celebrates its month anniversary today. I think you’ll all agree that Lucy McNamara has been doing a stupendous job as producer and presenter of this new venture. Listen now to hear her interview with rising stars Two Weeks Running, an alt-indie rock band from Manchester. Since forming in 2011, the quintet has supported a slew of well-established acts such as The Wombats and Reverend & The Makers as well as receiving airplay on radio stations such as XFM, Rock FM and the BBC. The band has gained a strong following, having clocked up nearly 35,000 Twitter followers and reached the top 10 in the Reverb Nation Alternative charts.
Also on Lucy’s playlist this weeks are, among others, Chasing Owls, The Shins, Arcade Fire, Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner, Summer Camp and Zola Jesus. Fill your festive boots – and don’t forget that the Northern Soul podcast is now available for download on iTunes.

@PurpleGooner Phenomenal Woman is our favourite but love the fact the congresswomen in the US are quoting this one in response to Trump.
People shouting 'send her back' at Trump rallies, the future PM waving a kipper around, warnings of a UK recession thanks to Brexit. We've never felt so simultaneously depressed and baffled by the state of the world. Think we'll look at photos of kittens for the rest of the day.
Thought for the Day: "You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise." - Maya Angelou
