ROCK THAT TIME FORGOT
Friday 8pm to 10pm (UK time)
Ya es primavera en Indie Lovers! Y lo celebramos con nuevo local en BCN radio HUB, en el Poble Nou de Barcelona, y nuevo horario, miércoles a las 19h, y recibie...ndo a un invitado de lujo: Fernando Alfaro, fundador de dos bandas vitales de la historia del pop independiente estatal, como son Surfin’ Bichos y Chucho. El artista manchego presenta nuevo recopilatorio, ‘Sangre En Los Surcos’, en que viaja en formato acústico por 30 años de carrera. Excusa ideal para que nos regale dos canciones a pelo, él y su guitarra. Otro gran momento para nuestra colección de recuerdos radiofónicos…
Además, repasamos noticias de la semana, y escuchamos nuevas canciones de Unofficial: Parquet Courts (sí, ésta es su cuenta oficial...) o Hinds. Y desde Inglaterra nos llega la recomendación final de esta semana. Nos la hacen los siempre prolíficos The Wave Pictures, que se decantan por un clásico de 4 décadas atrás: los también británicos The Groundhogs.

Today we had to say goodbye, at the funeral of Groundhogs old manager Wilf Pine. Wilf had a 'colourful' life, lived to the full. Above all, his generosity to those he met and boundless love for his family was remembered with affection. A tribute by television presenter, broadcaster and author, Fred Dinenage (who Wilf helped when Fred wrote books about the Krays) and the song 'Don't Cry Out Loud', sung at Wilf's request, by his close family friend Elkie Brooks, were presented to a full church. For Tony McPhee Wilf was simply his friend and was happy that they recently managed to keep in regular touch via text.
Thanks Carl Jones, Tony McPhee getting a mention in this interesting piece.

With utter sorrow I learned about the death of Wilf Pine, my commiserations to Ros Pine, his wife & the rest of his family, I've known Wilf since I met him on a... plane taking bands from festivals in Europe, he became 'Hogs manager soon after & I have so many stories he told me, I recommend the book written about him & his life story, fascinating!!!
I hoped my speech would improve so we could talk on the 'phone, but unfortunately it did not.
RIP my good friend.
