This week, we invited comedian, music fan and all round good guy Liam Withail to takeover The Skinny's weekly slot on Edinburgh's community station EH-FM. He played loads of brilliant music – everything from Little Simz and Young Fathers to Nick Cave and The National – and there was some top in-between-song-banter, as well as some top recommendations for other shows to catch at the Edinburgh Fringe this August.

You can catch Liam's show – Liam Withnail: Homecoming – every night at 6:40pm until 25 Aug (not 13) at Monkey Barrel Comedy (Venue 515). Listen back to Liam's show on EH-FM in the below Mixcloud player. Enjoy!
