Show tracks for Sat. Aug. 14/10

Slightly pre-empted for the second week in a row, this time for Phog Fest broadcasting.
But get used to this new start time. It seems the powers that be at CJAM have be'ed and they have decided to take away that half hour permanently.
So Cowboys & Indies will now officially start at 10pm and run until midnight.
Believe me I am not a happy camper about this. In fact, to say I am severely disappointed is an understatement.
But as a result of the shorter slot a few things about the show will have to be modified.
From this point on there will only be 1 lp session and it will be shorter. We will have to wait and see how this new time will affect the Festive 50. It is already a 2 episode event, if it looks like it will take 3 to do it I may have to revise it or drop it all together.
Don't panic, we'll just wait and see how this all plays out and go from there.
Cowboys & Indies will continue to be your home for the best in the British Indie/Alternative scene.
