Acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap first started performing on the London folk scene in the 1960s, where he played alongside contempraries Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Mike Oldfield. His first, self-titled album was released on Transatlanic Records in 1968.

Over the next few years, Gordon's music became increasingly instrumental until he released a series of three albums, Visionary (1976), Perilous Journey (1977) and Fear of the Dark (1978) which marked a high point in his career. One track off Perilous Journey, Heartsong, became a hit single and was adopted as the theme track for the BBC travel programme Holiday.

Interestingly, in 1988, ITV's travel programme Wish You Were Here took another Gordon Giltrap tune as its theme - The Carnival.

Gordon kept recording, he has made 20 to date, and touring with a variety of musicians. He also writes, both for Total Guitar and Acoustic magazines.

If you want to hear more about GOrdon Giltrap's long career, and hear some of the music he has made over the years, you can do so when Dave Hewitt presents Gordon Giltrap - In Focus, this Saturday at 8pm on Phoenix Radio.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.

Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.

So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
