RECORDIAU RHYS MWYN 7-10pm Monday’s BBC RADIO CYMRU
When I was invited by BBC Radio Cymru to present the Monday evening show back in 2016, the basic aim of the show was to reach listeners broadly in the 30-50 age group who had grown up listening to bands like Super Furry Animals, Catatonia and Gorky’s and the show was promoted as featuring music mainly from the 1980’s and 90’s.
The 80’s and 90’s basically covers the Welsh Underground scene that spawned Datblygu, Cyrff, Tynal Tywyll. Llwybr Llaethog etc in the mid-80’s. The second wave of bands like Crumblowers, U Thant and Ffa Coffi Pawb would be obvious candidates for airplay as would the whole ‘Cwl Cymru’ period taking us up into the 2000’s and the turn of the Millennium.More
