In a retrospective look at the music played on the podcast I feature some of the tunes I played in shows from 2008 to 2010. This is just a part one with more to come very soon. Some of these bands don’t exist any more and some of the artists don’t perform which is a massive shame but it goes to show that that you and yes I mean YOU, have to get out and support these people otherwise you could easily miss them. A massive shout out to all the folks that have bought me a coffee recently, I am really grateful for your support and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Stonewing, Keith Carney, Sally, Ben Osbourne and Hollow Doors. Thanks, I really appreciate you xxx.

I was talking about motivation and the self motivated musician when there is motivation, I’m finding it a bit tricky to be honest so I am in full admiration for you all. ….. I’m very pleased people are still making new music and what wonderful music it is!
