Alex Harvey, born in Glasgow in 1935, first started performing in skiffle groups in 1954. From 1958 until 1965, he fronted his own Big Soul Band, playing a mix of blues and rock and roll music.

Going solo was unsuccessful, and in 1967 Alex joined the pit orchestra for the London production of the musical Hair, where he would stay for five years.

In 1972, Alex formed the Sensational Alex Harvey Band and released the album Framed. It was the first of eight albums (seven studio and one live) that the band released up until 1978, when Alex left the band for the second and final time. In that short period, the band had achieved two top-ten hits in the UK, a cover of the Tom Jones track Delilah, off the 1975 Live album, and Boston Tea Party in 1976, taken from the album SAHB Stories.

After the break-up, Alex released three solo albums, the last, Soldier on the Wall, came out shortly after his death, in Zeebrugge, Belgium, in 1982.

But the Alex Harvey legend lives on. Fans in Scotland and around the world, some too young to have seen him perform live, still adore his music, and musicians as varied as Fish, Ian Drury and Nick Cave have quoted him as an influence. Find out why he remains so popular when Dave Hewitt presents Alex Harvey - In Focus on Phoenix Radio at 8pm on Saturday.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.

Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.

So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
