Show 107 – Edinburgh Sarnie

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

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

This week’s show is a Norwegian sandwich on crusty Floydian bread with a rich, tasty Edinburgh filling. It’s quite an eclectic spread, and utterly delicious. I couldn’t get enough of it. Next week – expect some rather hearty soup and more terrible puns. In the meantime, check out the links to this week’s bands as there’s a generous free EP from Airbag !

Show 106 – Sweet-Sounding Sibilance

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

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

Magical music from three female-fronted bands for you to savour this week, and all from countries beginning with the letter ‘S’ – South Africa, Scotland and Sweden. Coincidence or some very cunning show planning from yours truly ? Well, that WOULD be telling. Some things are best kept secret, but the result is sweet. Sample it and see.

Show 105 – Have You Played The Sausage Game ?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007

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

This is exclusives week – the show has two, or quite possibly three, tracks that are receiving their first podcast airings on Three From Leith. Each one is a little cracker – this is a show that I had so much fun putting together as I got to listen to the tracks again and again before, during and after recording. See what you think; huge thanks to my friend Freddy and my friends The Hussys for the privilige – I’m honoured.

Call me “Mr Radio 5 Live Ident Man” !

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

Who is that Pods & Blogs ident superhero ? Sarge ? No. Rosemary, the telephone operator ? No. Penry, the mild-mannered janitor ? Could be – but it’s not. It’s me getting a little bit of national radio exposure (well, on the podcast of the show) for Three From Leith and hopefully also for the music of Larry Guild (who’s already on a roll with the Beeb – playing on a special show to celebrate their move to their new Pacific Quay HQ).

They’re looking for other bloggers and podcaster to do likewise, so check out their site for details and get your mics and recording software ready !

Here’s the show details:

Podcast http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/podcasts/pods

if you wanted to go and check it out. I’ve subscribed now as I didn’t know about it before and it’s a typically excellent BBC programme bringing you the best stories around podcasting and blogging from across the world. It’s a great addition to my iRiver.

Show 104 – Dust Off The Cobwebs

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

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

OK – let me try and get started once again ! This time, hopefully, there will be no further unexpected events that disrupt a week’s recording schedule in future. Time to shake the cobwebs out of your head, dust off the remnants of what was summer and enjoy some out-and-out rock. Turn it all the way up to 11…
