Adventures In Sound And Music 18 July 2013: Norton Records

In this week's show, loud sound abounds with the help of Norton Records. Post-Hurricane Sandy, Norton Records have been picking up the pieces in their Brooklyn warehouse, and are finally back and releasing 45s from the dark corners of rock 'n' roll; from El Paso surf guitar groups to dance craze and answer records to one-man rockabilly home recordists. The show spins a tonne of new Norton wax and features an interview with Norton co-founder and ex-Cramps drummer Miriam Linna, plus assorted 7"s from the depths of their catalogue. Hosted by Derek Walmsley.

Every Thursday 9pm–10:30pm (BST), 104.4FM for Londoners. Streamed live at
