Thanks to the great team at No Sheet Music for this new placement with BBC Countryfile for ‘Truck Stop’ by Matt Parker from his recent album Score /236 Truck Stop Radio.
Country File was first broadcast in 1988 and aired weekly on BBC One, reporting on rural, agricultural, and environmental issues in the United Kingdom. While farming remained a core ingredient, the programme holds a much broader brief—to investigate rural issues and celebrate the beauty and diversity of the British countryside.
The programme was modelled on a regional BBC magazine series called ‘Your Country Needs You’, presented by Chris Baines, and produced by Mike Fitzgerald, popular broadcaster John Craven started fronting the Sunday morning programme in 1989.
In April 2009, Countryfile moved to an early Sunday evening slot, with Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury joining Craven as co-presenters. Tom Heap and Ellie Harrison also joined in 2009. In 2014, Helen Skelton became a presenter and in 2015, Anita Rani joined the programme, the programme currently airs 52 weeks of the year and includes a five-day weather forecast live from the BBC’s weather studio in London.

Score 236 / Truck Stop Radio
Hooky electric guitar riffs, attitude and swagger define this low-down and dirty collection of rock underscores. Brimming with bluesy confidence, energy and muscle, includes useful rhythmic beds and sparse mixes.
