September 2014 for stowaways

There are just a few days left before we hit September, so it’s probably about time I warned you that things are going to change a little bit as we hit the start of Autumn…

  • The second week of oldies! We listen back to Lightning Seeds, Yazoo, and more to see how they have stood the test of time
  • The random jukebox brings us tracks from Alphabeat, Saint Etienne, and others
  • It’s time for the autumn mini-awards season, so we’ll start our countdown to the 2014 Q Awards and Mercury Awards
  • We’ll kick off a completely new round of Beginner’s guides, right back at the letter A again, but who will it be this time?
  • Plus all the usual previews, charts, live highlights, and much more!
