The boys are back in town as Dave returns to hosting duties and thus NO ENCORE is kinda-sorta almost complete again.

On the agenda this week; the new Snow Patrol album, a ton of music news and new songs, and a downright strange performance from Craig.

ACT ONE: Dave’s big pop culture round-up.

ACT TWO: Scott Hutchison remembered, important updates on Grimes, Arctic Monkeys and Chromatics, The Script do battle and arguably the best passive-aggression ever encountered on the show.

ACT THREE: Snow Patrol return with Wildness; their first album in seven years. It’s a brave, emotional journey; and that’s just Dave.

ACT FOUR: Songs of the Week ft Nine Inch Nails, Black Eyed Peas, Anderson .Paak, Disclosure and the BACKSTREET BOYS.

EXIT MUSIC: Subplots – ‘Unspeak’
