House of Mercy radio play list
week starting Saturday 29th September 2012
presented by Barry Marshall-Everitt
for review/preview/archive & station download go to

The first session comes from an English veteran writer and singer who has just taken two duo’s around the country playing in the round…. Danny (The Champ) Wilson ( Danny & The Champions Of The World…Grand Drive ) plus Trevor Moss & Hannah Lou… plus Joe & Robin Bennett ( The Dreaming Spires ) sang and played in the round for this very special session.
The second session required us to nail the Snake Pit Studio roof back on after they left,… another duo who live life in the states traveling around in a chrome Airstream trailer…. Lucy plays mental cigar box slide and Wayne plays wildman drums… guitar… banjo and harp and there first record together was record of the week in December 2010, they are Hymn For Her…..there next release is due in the spring.
Record of the week…. is the best release from old friends Red House Records for some time… this is a beautifully crafted piece of work from the pen.. guitar and voice of Lucy Kaplansky and ‘ Reunion ‘ should put Lucy firmly in the top division of great female writers & singers. Her guest list isn’t at all shabby either having Buddy Miller…Eliza Gilkyson…John Gorka…Duke Lavine along with producer/drummer Ben Wittman…this record shines out with class.

This show is dedicated to the bestest of dogs… the late great Pokey Joe who looked after Hymn For Her.
