Apologies for the recent series of disasters that have befallen the TFL host and the TFL computer and prevented the release of a proper show for the last two weeks. Obviously, the fact that I’m writing this and that you’re seeing it and hearing the show is proof that all is now well ! So, it’s time to get back into the groove and there’s a show stuffed full of rock to help get the blood going and the feet stomping, starting with….

It never rains but it pours

Friday, April 18th, 2008

For the second time in under 6 months, the graphics card on my PC has died. This time the PC won’t boot up unless the dead card is removed, but even booted up it’s pretty useless when there’s no output to the monitor. I’m going to have to splash out on a new one as Dabs says the knackered card will be returned to the manufacturer for repair, which will take up to six weeks.

So once again dear listeners, TFL will have to take a week off as I’ll not be getting a new one for a few days so I have no PC to podcast with. This message is being composed on my ancient brick of a laptop, which has a 4Gb HDD and 128Mb RAM and is taking an age to do anything. Sadly, it’s so old it can’t handle the processing power required to run my podcasting software, and it doesn’t have the audio inputs either. I’m really (insert your swearword of choice here) annoyed as I have music stacking up and I’m suffering from podcasting withdrawal.

Keep your fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed that nothing else breaks down and I’ll be back with you next week. Now I’m off to check my bank balance to see what card I can afford….

Show 131 – Barry White with TB

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

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

Ugh. A cold again at recording time. Rather than subject you to my ‘Barry White with TB’ impressions and risk covering my pop shield in nasal effluent, I did a ‘great songs you may have missed’ podcast from shows 20 and earlier. Please enjoy and I’ll be back next week. (And don’t worry, this virus can’t be caught through your ears !)

From TFL16 in Dec 2005, Fourteenhours – ‘She Cried’

From TFL05 in Sept 2005, Lena – ‘Step On The Gas’

From TFL20 in Jan 2006, Hungry Lucy- ‘Rainfall’

From TFL10 in Oct 2005, Vanton – ‘Wyatt Earth’

Gulls, southern blues, fleas and people going loopy – yes, it’s another eclectic selection from the big bag of TFL tunes this week ! You know I never like to stick in any ruts, so you’re always guaranteed the best varriety of indie and unsigned music here – free of charge, with the only stipulation being that you thank the artists yourself if you really like what you hear. And, if you can afford to, you help support them by buying their music. And now, on with the show:

Isn’t new music great ? It’s such a thrill when you receive it, and the anticipation of what it’s going to sound like builds as you either detach the mp3 or put the CD in the player and fire it up. All of this week’s music is brand new, and let me just say that none of it disappointed. A trio of Scottish artists and four new tracks for you to enjoy – what more could you ask for to help me celebrate another year on the planet ?
