The Day The World Turned Day-glo! Show tracks for Sat. Sept. 14/13

So the big news of the week was the Mercury Music Prize shortlist announcement. As has been the custom in the last bunch of years we profile the artists that were nominated. Actually, all but 2 of them have been played on the show before. Days after the announcement the controversy started with My Bloody Valentine feeling "banned" from the proceedings. It turns out their album was far too independent and they didn't meet the minimum requirements to be considered. I wonder if this will be the spark to change the requirements to allow more independent artists/albums.
We lead into the profile of all 12 nominated artists with last year's winner.
As if that wasn't enough there was still time for new music from Wedding Present, Comet Gain, Summer Camp and Manic Street Preachers in the LP Session.
What more could you ask more, except less talking from me! More Rawk, Less Talk!
