examples: withering pedal steel playing on Going For the One (title song of LP of that name); devastating scalic runs in m8 (as it were) of Turn of the Century, same LP.

Such lessons

So elusive

Such beauty

Above the flitering attitudes of the moddish mass - truly strange

Best radio programme, in my view, captures this elusive thing. It is:

Stuart Marconi's 'Freakzone', Radio Six Live, Sunday 5pm I think - I listen on line. Since Mixing It was killed off by the hopelessly idiotic public school-infested BBC, Marconi's show isthe only thing worth hearing, in my view.

Anyone know of others? Obviously, I'm aware of Late Junction on R3, but it is mostly a World Music show, and I generally dislike that music, personally.
