Chart compiled by listeners voting on the songs they hear on Radio Dupree

Our Album of the Month in March; Zappa's Sheik Yerbouti, pops up a couple of times on this month's chart. And we do find a lot of the usual suspects in the Top 20.
But it is a surprise number one! Rachel Unthank & The Winterset from Northumberland, United Kingdom.

"Folk/Experimental/Roots" is what the MySpace-page says. And their version of The Beatles' Sexy Sadie is different but - in our and our listeners opinion - well worth a listen. It's available on Mojo Magazone's 2 CD revisit of The White Album, asking various artists to take on the songs from the original double album. We gave away a set of the Mojo version in December last year and continue to play tracks from the CDs.

Somewhat surprising that the chart includes two Missing Person songs. So, would you listeners like to hear more of this Bozzio post Zappa era combo? I was thrilled to hear what drummer Terry Bozzio and bassist Patrick O'Hearn would do after their departure from Frank Zappa's band in the late 70's. However, I was a little confused when I realised that it did not sound any way I had expected. But some MP songs are really catchy, and I really enjoy the Spring Session M album.
