Folk-jazz band Pentangle was formed in 1967 and was active until 1973, although there were later renions and reincarnations. At its peak, the band sold out venues such at the Royal Festival Hall and performed at the Isle of Wight Festival. Hit single Light Flight, from the 1969 album Basket of Light, was even used as the theme for a television series.

Following their break-up, the various band members went their own ways. Guitarist John Renbourn performed as a solo artist and also formed the band Ship of Fools in 1988 for one soliary album.

John Renbourn died on 27 Matrch 2015. In this week's Esoterica, Dave Hewitt looks back at John's career and his music, with Pentangle, with other collaborators, and on his own.

For the story of John Renbourn, listen in to Esoterica, this and every Saturday at 8pm - on Phoenix Radio.

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.

The world of Prog Rock has been somewhat under-represented recently in Phoenix Radio's schedule.

Now a significant new show corrects that as Paul Baker brings Soundscapes to Phoenix. Every Sunday, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and even get out his infamous 'long tracks'. Often joined in the studio by Phoenix Radio's own Ralph Rea, Paul's show is a must-listen for all fans of Prog.

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.
