The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Set up by Andy Bell, Bradley Kulisic and Neil McSweeney – with Hudson the dog as mascot – Hudson Records is a Sheffield-based record label. It specialises in folk and acoustic music, but points out: "there are no boundaries to our tastes; who knows what destinations await!" Join them on their ride into these unknown destinations with their Sunday morning Listening Club.

The Hudson Records Listening Club has been running since late March, in partnership with Folk Radio UK. The idea is to listen to an album in its entirety – delving deeper with commentary and insight into the writing, arranging, recording and life of the music from the artists themselves. Each broadcast is pre-recorded, but the artists join the session live to discuss and chat further in the comments section.

It's free to enjoy, but donations are welcome.

See some highlights from past Hudson Records Listening Clubs below. See more on YouTube or Facebook – where you can also tune in every Sunday morning at 10:30am.
