We – Tallah Brash (Music Editor) and Nadia Younes (Clubs Editor) – were back on the radio this week (13 May) for our ninth show on Edinburgh community station EH-FM. It was a bit of an eventful one for us today, which started with us being locked out of the studio for the first 20 minutes or so of the show, so we went on the air late and then when we were heading back to our office we, quite literally, got chased down the street by a gargantuan swarm of angry wasps, unlike anything we've ever seen before.

So anyway, our show happens every Monday from 12-2pm (although today's was more like 12:20-2pm) and is your go-to guide for what's on that week in the world of gigs and clubs across Scotland; listen back to our latest show in the below Mixcloud player, which featured lots of lovely new music and a look at FLY Open Air, taking place at Hopetoun House this weekend (18-19 May).

As per usual, there was lots of daft patter and lots of top tunes. We did much fumbling today, stating that next week would be a Primavera / Hidden Door Weekender special, which was wrong – we were seriously flustered today. Next week we'll be looking at Glasgow's Riverside Festival with our Primavera / Hidden Door Weekender special happening the following Monday on 27 May. And breathe.
