It’s time for another Rathole Radio. This time I played my usual mix of eclectic styles and people said it was a “more relaxed” show, until I got to the thrash metal at the end of the show that is muwhahaha. I also played a live version of one of my favourite blues song, complete with Bee Gees falsetto vocals in parts, listen out for that. I hope you enjoy the show.
As I entered the lions den A.K.A. The Hilton Hotel A.K.A. this year’s host to the Sound City ‘front of shop’ proceedings, I was met with the overwhelming presence of main cheese Dave Pitchilingi on my left, TV pundit Rob Goldblade on my right and a whole host of assorted groupings of nice men with hair cuts spattered throughout. I broke into an uncomfortable sweat and claimed my press pass. A lady was repeatedly saying someone else’s name at me and, being that it was other than my own name, I was confused by this, to the point where I then agreed that it was indeed my name and took the pass hastily. I left to see the posh Sound City hire car creating a hullaballoo with yet more men with nice hair getting out.
