Show 284 – Will It Get There?

May 20th, 2014

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Jings! Where did the time go? A combination of time & frustration with the PC thwarting a couple of attempts to record (three hours wasted when the wifi card software corrupted, anyone?) has kept me away longer than planned. I’ve also noticed that the comments validation plugin was broken, as was the ‘Donate’ button, so they’ve now been fixed too. So, let’s get on and fix the bumper selection of music right now

Vukovi – So Long Gone

Talia – Thelma & Louise

Kinetics – The Ocean

The Telenovellas – Intergalactic Debauchery At The Red Light District Of The Moon / Queen Of The Moths

Foggy Nocean – George Orwell Was Right

GUMS! And Callum Baird – Something Rotten / Haunted House

The soundbed was ‘Lights’ by Modeplex
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Coming soon – Show 284!

May 19th, 2014

I’m fated to never get a podcast out when I want to. Tonight I’ve spend almost three hours trying to tag the podcast file in iTunes and upload it to the server. It’s there now, but I don’t have the time left tonight to write up the shownotes & publish it. That will hopefully come tomorrow night, but if you can’t wait that long, you can access the file directly to listen to at: http://www.grantmason.co.uk/Podcasting/Shows/tfl284.mp3

Cheers!

Merry Christmas 2013 from Three From Leith!

December 24th, 2013

Unfortunately, I’ve had another disappointing lack of good Christmas music this year so I’ve not been able to put together a Christmas show.  However, why not enjoy a great show from a few years ago as you celebrate the festive season?

The 2010 Christmas Special – brought to you from a sub-zero, snow-covered December Leith day.

Have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Grant & Jasna x

Show 281 – The Greatest One On Earth!

December 3rd, 2013

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Back again, in dire need of a PC that works properly when I need it to (and which won’t decide it’s having a go-slow protest any time I sit down to podcast!). Yes, it’s my usual litany of excuses for lengthy gaps between podcasts, but this week I ameliorate them with a helping of fab new music from Airbag, and a cracking little instrumental from Indoven :-)

Airbag – The Greatest Show On Earth

Indoven – A Lifestory
(The video can be seen here).

Airbag – Call Me Back

The soundbed was ‘Soma’ by Silencio Stampa
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Apologies

November 26th, 2013

Sorry for the lack of shows these last few weeks. Gigs & PC problems have stymied recent attempts to do any recording. I’ll hopefully get the PC running well enough on Friday to get one ready for next week.

Show 280 – Farewell To HL

October 22nd, 2013

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

It’s been a sad few weeks for me, as a number of my favourite things have come to an end. I thought it was bad enough when ‘Fags, Mags & Bags’ ended, but then came the hammer-blow: Hungry Lucy was no more. One of my favourite bands from my time as a podcaster, the band came into my life towards the end of 2005. less than 3 months after the birth of Three From Leith. They’ve been around ever since, and become virtual friends who I’d one day hoped to see playing live, but it was destined never to be, for Lucy’s finally ‘had her tea’. In celebration of the band’s short life, this week’s podcast is a little tribute featuring some of my favourite tracks from the past 8 years.

Hungry Lucy – Her Song / Rainfall / My Beloved / We Won’t Go / Balloon Girl / Wandering / Shine

The soundbed was ‘Future’s Brighter (Instrumental demo)’
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Show 279 – Never Make Promises

September 24th, 2013

I should never make promises about when I’m next going to record a podcast. Doing so seems to tempt fate and throw many obstacles in my path! So, here I am weeks later than I anticipated, with a playlist decided on almost two weeks ago during an aborted recording session. Still, better late than never!

From Kid – Sun

Abscondo – Lost

Social Club – Gamma Rays

Abscondo – I Created

The soundbed was ‘Echo (Origin 2009)’ by Solar Fields
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Well, it already seems like I’ve never been away – and weeks since I came back, then met a musical hero of mine at his Fringe show on my first Friday back, then had Jasna stay for an extra Friday night on my second week back. Where has the time gone? It’s now getting dark by 8.30pm and is still dark when I get up to cycle to work! Winter is coming….

Preacher – Jupiter To Mars

Craftplay – Death Of The Swagger

Arrow Haze – Casino / Crisis

The soundbed was ‘Vacation’ by Craftplay
