Is This Thing On Podcast 96

I am away on holiday so this podcast is appearing through the magic that is time travel. As I haven’t had many new tracks sent, I have taken the opportunity to go back and play some of the tracks that I played at the very start of the podcasts history.

I played The Wilton Project ~ Diana, The Cherry Bluestorms ~ Diana, Sonny ~ Something in the Water, Sigurdor Guomundsson ~ Gengi? á Gufunum, Paul Liddell ~ Ghost Car, Will Kriski ~ Metal Mayhem, Liz Longley ~ Rush and an old Drunk On Logic Version of All I Think About Is You.

I slipped in an old Watch With Mothers song review, remember them?

Lots of things associated with this podcast will have happened automatically but don’t be fooled, I am in Portugal.

More pre recorded fun next week!

Is This Thing On Podcast 62 Xmas Special Part Two

Part two does start, eventually after about 12 seconds, sorry about that but there were technical problems with this one.

Apoc told us the tale of a Canadian Xmas followed by the mighty Matt Stevens with his Xmas address. A great track Fearless by ITTO fave Paul Liddell then Repeat by Tommy Eye (ft Matt Diaper), Odin the Great by Defy 4Unravelling from Liz Longley, a tune from me which you can download for a £1 by clicking hereSarah Griffin bought us close to the end with her brilliant tune poet and the whole chaotic festive jumble was bought to an end by The Lost Boys and their cracking tune I don’t want to be a Christmas Single.

That’s it for this year, the next podcast will hopefully go live in a couple of weeks so keep checking all the usual places.

The new website is close to being completed. You can now catch up with podcast 15 to the present day now with each episode having it’s own little player. Have a look around as it will be the new permanent home very soon.

Hope you have a great time over the holiday and I’ll be back in the new year.
