The Alternative Hour with Elspeth Pierce

The Alternative hour this week was in homage to the upcoming Great Escape Festival this weekend, with music from some of the acts featured from Gallops, Chastity Belt, Slaves, Olympia and more.

She gave you a tour through the savvy app (Great Escape 2017) to help guide you through and help you to get the most out of the buzzing annual Brighton event and revealed some hot- off- the- press news.

There was other insider music news from Alice Cooper, Paul McCartney, The Smiths and insights into BBC Music Day on the 15th June.

Track of the week was from Chastity Belt – Caught In A Lie.

Tune in every Tuesday for your alternative fix 6-7pm
