Last week's voting was nice and brought us a clear winner. Somewhere halfway the program you will hear who won.

The music in TalentCast will build up nicely this week. We start with a relaxing electronic tune from Denmark and we will end this programme with a metal band from India. In between we play country, easy listening and jazzy songs. Towards the end it will be a bit louder, then you can listen to three rock bands we like.

There are a lot of good independent musicians and bands in the programme today. Tune in!
