Further Information


Few bands are so ingrained into the notion of the BBC radio session as The Wedding Present. Long time favourites of the late, great John Peel, David Gedge and his band appeared regularly on that legendary presenter’s BBC Radio 1 show and have continued their association with “Auntie” by performing many unforgettable sessions on the popular ‘Marc Riley Show’ on BBC Radio 6 Music. The award-winning Marc Riley Show is one of the most popular shows on BBC Radio 6 Music, championing cutting edge sounds of today alongside iconic recordings from the past 40 years. An avid Wedding Present fan himself, Riley, with his team of producers, has formed a close bond with David and his band over the years. “The release of the Wedding Present sessions done for our 6 Music programme over the years is something of an honour. In the great tradition of the Peel / Selwood releases on the Strange Fruit label, this record proves that, even without John, the BBC can still be a place where great bands can continue to grow and be creative... amongst friends.”
