Show 112 – A Strum and a Waltz

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

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

British Summer Time has come to an end, and “the nights are fair drawin’ in”, so it’s back to cosy evenings in the kitchen with the radio and podcasting in the corner of a darkened room. This week’s music reflects the mood with some plucking, waltzing, strumming and poetry.

Show 111 – Kids and Games

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

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

An international feel to this week’s show, with an ex-Geordie Swede, a rock musician from Pakistan (a first for that country on TFL) and an utterly brilliant band from Edinburgh making their TFL debut. In addition, there’s some blether on the perils of playing your kids at Pokemon trading cards and a recommendation for a pretty unique new podcast which charmed and entertained me no end !

Show 110 – Politeness & Presidents

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

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

Another week, another great selection. I’m heartened by the growing number of Scottish bands getting in touch, after a rather sparse period where only bands I’d played before were still submitting. Hearing ‘new blood’ in the music scene is always a thrill, and this week you can hear two, as well as a new track from an old favourite Bristol band. Savour the taste !

Show 109 – The Alternatives Are…

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

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

A rather alternative, mixed collection this week – possibly as a result of my brain melting and running out of my ears during a 2-day course at work at the start of the week ! Punk-tinged American alt-rock, Scottish alt-country pop and American indie alternative rock. Just the right blend to tantalise your eardrums as you skip through the park, kicking up the autumnal carpet of leaves.

Show 108 – Stroke the T

What do you get when you put together two exclusives and two tracks from two loons, and then throw in a cuppa ? Well, you get this week’s terrific tracks on Three From Leith. With a little weather chat, news on spreading the word about podsafe bands by wearing their apparel on dress-down days and more amiable waffling, what more could you want on a chilly autumnal Tuesday ?
