LISTEN AGAIN: Iguana Radio Show # 170 – Merthyr Rising Special

With less than three weeks to go to this year’s Merthyr Rising Festival, this week we had festival director Lyn Williams in the studio along with Peter Crews, of UNISON, the festival’s main partner.

The play list was made up (almost) entirely of bands playing the event and we chatted at length about all things Merthyr Rising.
