It's not a Peel Session (that would be kind of hard to pull off, of course, considering that the legendary John Peel is no longer with us), but it's still pretty dang rad to hear that the Swayback had one of their songs, "What a Pity," played last night BBC Radio, specifically 6 Music's Introducing with Tom Robinson. For a rebroadcast of last night's show and see the playlist on the BBC's website.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
