Is Jools even relevant anymore?

Watch out though, they’ll replace him with Lauren Laverne.

Looks like the BBC got it a bit wrong on their listing. Yolanda is actually Yola ( aka Yola Carter ), an up and coming country / soul songstress whose first album ‘Walk through fire’ has been produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Could be good.😀

I saw Yola Carter at Red Rooster Festival earlier this year, having decided to actually get out of the house and find some new music instead of sitting on my derrière watching the TV and whinging about it. She has an excellent set of pipes, very powerful, and put on a great live show. I'll be watching it and hoping it goes well for her.

Barking Spiders, if you really don't know who Yolanda Charles is,  I suggest you go and find out before making a fool of yourself in front of everyone.

...or Jo Whiley   😬

I'll be tuning in this evening as something usually surprises me such as Imelda May the other year; but if Jools does step aside (and I think he'll have to before they change the host - I rather think it's his show / production company that supplies the show to the BBC) who would you like to see take over and what changes do you think they'd bring in terms of musical focus?  I think the basic idea of getting groups / musicians in a room and recording a show of them playing live music is a great one.

Having been to a recording of one of these shows (the 25th anniversary show at RAH) I can vouch for how good the format is, or can be.  It was also the first gig my Son had been to and he'd never seen a top rock band in full flight.  Foo Fighters were the headline act that night and they definitely had a new fan by the end of the evening!

Jamie Cullum has been mentioned above as a serious alternative - could be a good shout in my opinion, although an honourable mention should go to Mark Radcliffe

I really liked the channel 4 series “live from abbey road” - a focused programme on a few acts. usually top flight. 

Im struggling to remember, might’ve been 3 bands per show. Think it was about 2003/4

I don’t know, jools Holland used to be better because bands/music used to be better? Or is that just nostalgic nonsense?

I still remember "The White Room" (Channel 4). I wonder if Jools' eventual replacement will come from the musical world rather than presenting - I think the aspect of them playing with the guests/bands may be one of the things important to retain.

Again, didn’t say anything about live music. Just Jools.

This is hilarious. I'll be recording it. I'm sure all of us are doing far more impressive gigs tonight... Happy new year you miserable lot :)

Where there’s Jools, there’s boogie woogie.

 

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I wouldn't be on basschat on NYE mate. 

Theoretically could be, as the work on hootenanny is all done by about September.

😉

I’m sure Jools and his Hootenanniens aren’t that worried about us lot on Basschat...and the BBC keep on recommissioning it, so 🤷🏻‍♂️
