Famed sound recordist and musician Chris Watson (ex-Cabaret Voltaire) is currently doing Tweet of the Day on Radio 4 at around 5.58am every morning. The short broadcasts feature the story of and birdsong from our feathered friends including the Common Pheasant, Bearded Tit and the Eider.

Moving from wildlife to railways, another recent Chris Watson radio programme worth checking out is 'The Station' which is a fascinating sound portrait of 24 hours in the life of Newcastle Central Station.

The Names

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.

Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
