On The Record with Craigus Barry (Dali Bonus Edition)
This is a special On The Record songwriting edition based on the track Dali by The Retinal Circus aka Craigus Barry, there are lots of terrific songs by local artists that deserve the classic album treatment but Craigus explains the construction of this song beautifully, especially the lyrics and also the input from Ed Steelefox and John Joe Murray on the way 🙂

As well as being a contributor to the series, BBC’s Andrew Marston also provided some great support for On The Record by putting together slots on his Introducing show for all our interviewees (not himself…professional to the end), I recorded these for a little bonus feature to mark the end of the current series.
