It’s time for another Rathole Radio and together with my usual eclectic mix of tunes I also have a fabulous guest. Fit & The Conniptions AKA Wayne Myers joins us live to talk about music, Linux, funny names and more. I had some technical problems getting him on the line but once I’d got some more coal in the furnace we were away. Enjoy!
The penultimate Rathole Radio before the gig on April 24th in Liverpool. Nerves are starting to rise but the main problem I had this week was the loss of hearing in one ear. I did the show with one ear but wasn’t feeling up to a live track I’m afraid. I was pleased to announce that we’ll be joined next time by fellow podcaster and musician Nick Tann though, listen out for that on April 17th. I also played some great tracks of varying styles for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
Hello everyone, welcome to the Liverpool Acoustic eXtra Spotlight for April 2011. Hope you’re all well and enjoying this wonderful sunshine we‘re having. First off on behalf of Stuart Todd and myself we would like to thank everyone who came to last month’s Liverpool Acoustic Extra opening night gig. For those who were there I’m sure you’ll agree it was a great night of live music. For those of you who missed it, fear not, because in the show notes below there is a video you can watch from the night.
Rathole Radio is on the loose again and nobody is safe! This time I played my usual eclectic mix of styles and waffled on in a seemingly never ending conversation with myself. I also remembered my guitar this time and played my version of the classic “Many Rivers To Cross” by Jimmy Cliff. What a seminal tune it is. There’s plenty of news about the Rathole Radio gig to dig your teeth into as well. I hope you enjoy the show.
Time for another Rathole Radio and this time I played a nice range of music. It encompassed everything from jazz to blues and electro to rock. Most of these tunes came from Jamendo and are also Creative Commons licensed which I encourage. There’s also a live recording of me playing with 20lb Sounds earlier this year.

This month's gig on Friday 11th March will feature sets from Rae Clark, Miles Carrington, Megan Dooley and The Ratty Little Fingers.
Welcome to another Rathole Radio. I was back in the UK this time and back to a live broadcast. Many people joined me in the chat room and we had a good time. I played my usual eclectic mix of tunes and some listeners described the selection this time as “relaxed”. You can decide for yourself. I also gave my rendition of “Long May You Run” by Neil Young.
