Well it’s back, one of my favourite shows and certainly the best music show on television Later with Jools Holland. Don’t miss it on ABC2 at 10:20PM this Friday (22/10/10)

The host but not the star of the show Jools Holland

The show has run for 18 years in the UK and features real musicians, old and young. This is not a show for Pop Princesses. Legends of the past are featured every week, alongside the young and up and coming. I have discovered many new artists through this show alone.

This week’s show features Paul Weller of  The Jam and the Style Council, as well as a long and successful solo career. Paul Rodgers of Free and Bad Company and in recent years Queen. Rodgers is widely regarded by many as the greatest rock voice of all time. I last saw him performing with Queen in the Ukraine in 2008 and he had lost none of his old powers. I’m looking forward to this.

That’s it for the old guys. Also on the bill you can look forward to, or be introduced to Marina And The Diamonds, Hot Chip, Polar Bear, Gogol Bordello and Villagers. There’s bound to be something that appeals to you in there.

So don’t miss it, Later with Jools Holland 10:20PM ABC2 Friday 22nd October 2010. Be there or be a non-round thing.
