The Rider this week has a guest! Al Kent who is headlining the Liverpool Disco Festival joins us to talk about his career and the wonderousness of Disco.

Adam Melia is gutted he can’t make it. It is a cloud that hangs over the whole show. Stephanie Heneghan talks about lawns, John Gibbons speaks into a handheld microphone for reasons we remain unsure about and Neil Atkinson is back hosting The Rider. He bears gifts from Marrakech. Actual gifts.

Have a listen because amongst everything there are ten fantastic songs. As ever, as always.

Tickets for the Liverpool Disco Festival are here:

Will see you there. Not Adam, obviously.
