In this episode of The European Perspective:

  • A TEP250 Top Ten from one of the show’s longest-standing supporters, songwriter, musician and wit extraordinaire, Simon Godfrey. We also spin a few tunes from Simon’s extensive back catalogue, and chat about Shineback and Valdez
  • A blast from the past with a big chunk of Chris Squire’s classic solo album, Fish Out Of Water
  • Progradar‘s Picks, featuring Tumbletown, Glass Hammer, Haken, and from the archives, Moon Safari
  • Japanese Zeuhl, anyone?

…plus a couple of mini-sets featuring music from France and the USA, and The Fierce And The Dead topping and tailing with cuts from their bangin’ new album, The Euphoric.
