Looks Like A Good Night For Music On The Telly (if you’re not off down the pub – or out again with that tart I saw you with. Has she got a mate then or what?):
Ivor Cutler: Looking for Truth with a Pin.
“Friends, fans and fellow performers pay tribute to the Glasgow-born musician, poet, painter and humorist who died earlier this month. Some strong language.”

Loudon Wainwright III at the BBC
“American singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III has been performing at BBC studios over the last three decades – this programme is dedicated to those shows.
To compliment the BBC Four sessions Loudon Wainwright III at the BBC consists of carefully selected highlights that include performances from Later…with Jools Holland, The Old Grey Whistle Test, Wogan and The Late Show. Classics such as Swimming Song and Rufus is a Tit Man are contrasted alongside other revered moments that include Unhappy Anniversary and Hitting Her.
This compilation confirms Loudon’s witty, self-mocking style, and an engaging stage persona made that him a cult figure and concert favourite.”

BBC3 – or THREE as they prefer!
The Colin and Edith Show
Hmmm, ok perhaps somewhat less promising this but even the worst music shows sometimes fluke. Perhaps one to video and review later then
“Colin Murray and Edith Bowman of Radio 1 fame present a new show of live music, comedy guests and general larking about.
Starring (in order of appearance) The Zutons, Kate Bush, Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Dave Gorman, We Are Scientists, Green-ish Day, Status Quo, The Ramones & Chas ‘n’ Dave. This programme contains strong language.”
Their fuckin’ words, not mine. Ooops there I go again
