The folk duo behind 'The Huddersfield beer anthem' played Summat's Brewin' during a live session on BBC Radio 2 tonight (Wednesday, February 26).
O'Hooley and Tidow, who wrote about the town's real ale scene, were on The Folk Show with Mark Radcliffe
Belinda and Heidi are currently getting rave reviews for their newly released album The Hum, which features the beer song that name checks most of Huddersfield brewers.  
And a video of Summat's Brewin' has attracted more than 2,300 views on You Tube.
Belinda O'Hooley, in a recent email interview on this site, said: "Mark Radcliffe on BBC Radio 2 has played Summat's Brewin' on his show already as well as two other tracks from The Hum. 
"He has invited us into the studio to do a live session on Wednesday, February 26. Who knows, we might play the beer song live on Radio 2!"
True to their word Summat's Brewin' was the first of three songs they showcased tonight.
Not only did they talk about the inspiration behind the song (about 17minutes in) they brought host Mark Radcliffe a gift of some bottled Mallinsons beer from Lockwood and some pork pies from Golcar.
A winning combination and a wonderful advert for the town!
Here is a link to the programme with a listen again facility:
