The first ever AIM Independent Music Awards are next week. Are you going? Let’s hope they’ve learned from the whole Mercury Music Prize debacle and don’t serve fish. I don’t like fish. Though, actually, I can’t go anyway, so what do I care? I hope the main course is squid.

Anyway, we’re not here to talk about the food. Or, for that matter, really, the awards themselves. No, we’ve gathered here today to discuss five special programmes that will be broadcast on Amazing Radio next week to mark the occasion of the inaugural AIM awards, and to celebrate the UK’s indie music scene and all that malarkey.

The shows will air at 9pm from Sunday through to Thursday, and will focus on labels Bella Union, Tri-Angle, Fierce Panda, The Leaf Label and Transgressive, followed on Thursday by coverage of the awards themselves led by Gill Mills.
