Left Of The Dial
This week: the first of four year-/decade-ending specials cements 2009's growing reputation as a cracking year for music by looking at some of the albums that didn't make it into the LOTD top ten of the year (to be announced next week), and discovering that they still contain terrific work by The Phantom Band, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, God Help The Girl and De Rosa.
As for the other three year/decade-ending specials, the plan is:
November 21st: Top Ten albums of 2009
November 28th: Top Ten albums of the 2000s
December 5th: Post-match analysis of the decade's music and movies with any willing parties (anyone who wants to get on board with that, get in touch)
And finish up for the year on December 12th with a Christmas special. Stay tuned, an' that.09:00 - 10:00
