Another week and another fantastic Sunday Sessions was upon us. This week we had interviews, some awesome live acoustic tracks from A41 and the usual ‘Quizzing In Your Ears’. The show was so jam packed we hardly had any time for our ‘Summer Tunes’ in the show’s ‘Musical Top Trumps’.
This week we managed to shoe horn 7 people into the studio, unfortunately Evan couldn’t be with us this week so we were joined by our good friend Scott Marsh as he is the missing link between us and the band (he went to school with three of them). And of course we were joined by A41 band members, Matthew Coucill, Bryn Anderson, Alex Warrington and Chris Turton. We’ll be uploading a podcast of the boys interview shortly (so keep your eyes peeled).
A41's Matt performing 'Hollywood Walkway'
The lads brought along two acoustic guitars, a set of bongo’s, a tambourine and an egg shaker and produced some fantastic music to boot. You can download the two original songs they played for us, ‘Hollywood Walkway’ and ‘The Sun Shines On The Silver Tree,’ here.
- A41 – Hollywood Walkway (Live)
- A41 – Yellow Snow
- A41 – Wires (Live Athlete Cover)
- A41 – The Sun Shines On The Silver Tree (Live)
- A41 – What Comes Around Flys Away! (Live Mash-up)
- A41 – Last Dance

After the interview we returned to Quizzing In Your Ears where Team JimmyMac (James, Bryn & Chris) played against Team HawtDawg (Scott, Matt & Alex) as they became dubiously known. The teams remained close throughout the quiz with Team JimmyMac leading by a solitary point and it was only in the final round after a disputed tiebreaker decision that Team HawtDawg won the day.
Due to the chaos that was A41 we only had time for a couple of Musical Top Trumps and our ‘Summer Tunes’ this week were
- MGMT – Kids
- The Beach Boys – Surfin’ Safari
- The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations
If you want to hear more of A41 then check out their Facebook page which allows you to listen to some of their other songs like ‘Yellow Snow’ and ‘What’s Her Name’
