This weekend will be an extra musical weekend for TalentCast, because next to this radio show, we will host our 7th album listening session. On Sunday we will host "Fake blood from real wounds", the newest album of The Imaginary Suitcase, the solo project of Laurent Leemans from Belgium. You are very welcome to join the session, and to bring your friends. Check our website for the details.

Today you will hear some new songs from artists we have played before, some older songs and of course the Song of the Week winner.

Last week on Friday we heard very sad news about one of our artists - Joyce Dijkgraaf from Tilburg in the Netherlands. On Thursday evening, on September the 24th Joyce crashed with her car. On Friday she passed away because of her injuries.

Joyce, you left us sweet memories of the few times we met and you left us beautiful music. Rest in peace, dear Joyce.

We wish the bereaved much strength.
Song of the Week
Benny Mayhem
Mindless Greg The Media Consumer
Benny Mayhem is a singer-songwriter from Perth, Australia. Until a year ago Benny played in a punk band named Project Mayhem. After the band broke up, he decided not to start a new band right away and to travel and tour as a folk-punk troubadour. Since then he has been travelling the world with his acoustic guitar.

Benny Mayhem is just finishing his European tour. He has visited The Netherlands and played in Groningen, and that is where Catself and I met him two weeks ago.

Mindless Greg The Media Consumer portrays the world view of, as Benny explains, "the boorish, unthinking element of our democracies whose opinions – while not necessarily intended as malicious – tended to be anyway."

Mindless Greg The Media Consumer is Benny Mayhem's first single release. Later this year he will release his debut 6-track EP which you can buy now already at his shows.

Benny Mayhem is already planning his next tour. He might visit your country too!
