What an exciting month it’s been for Glaswegian music. From the surprise release of Rustie’s new album ‘EVENIFUDONTBELIEVE’ to the long-awaited arrival of Auntie Flo’s sophomore effort 'Theory Of Flo’ - which is on target to be our favourite album of 2015 - there’s been plenty to get stuck into. Needless to say, we represent both these releases on November’s radio show, alongside new music from the likes of Milton Jackson, Debukas, Sparky and Bessa.

This month’s guest-mix is provided by one of the most intriguing and original artists Glasgow has to offer. He’s been active in the city for many years now with a number of different aliases, but it’s under his own name, Joe Howe, that he’s been producing irresistible "synth-funk", with releases on the likes of Sound Pellegrino and #Feelings. His mix for us is like a shot of electronic Prozac, designed to put a big grin on your face…
