A selection of my favourite tracks from the Rough Trade vaults. We can't take a listen to the Rough Trade catalog without the first song, Nag Nag Nag by Cabaret Votaire – a song that could stand as the manifesto for the label. It was also a favourite pick from my employer Tim Gane when he appeared on the programme at the start of 2010.
