Show 162 – 2008 Highlights (Part 1)

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

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

To see out the auld year and bring in the new, it’s time to run through my favourite tracks from each month of 2008. I’ve decided to split the show up into two parts, meaning it’s more easily digestible in this season of overindulgence. Enjoy, and pop back next week for a second helping ! Oh, and Happy New Year when it comes !

TFL 162 – Review of 2008 coming soon !

This week’s show will be slightly delayed due to the fact that I’ve been a bit busy with family recently. Fear not though – it will arrive as soon as it’s ready !

The Christmas Show 2008

It’s that most wonderful time of the year once again…. yes, it’s the legendary Three From Leith Christmas Special 2008 ! Kicking off, like last year, with another rip-roaring version of Jingle Bells, you’re in for 45 minutes of top festive tuneage. Fast stuff, slow stuff, silly stuff, cheesy stuff, quality stuff – more stuffing than you could ram up a farmload of turkeys, in fact. Don your party hat, put down your glass of sherry and prepare to pull yourself another seasonal cracker !

Outspoken – ‘Punk Rock Bells’
Winzenried aka Hollywood Drunks – ‘We Three Kings’
The Hot Toddies – ‘Santa Baby’
Joey Murillo – ‘You Are My Christmas’
Jack Frost & The Christmas Band – ‘The First Noel’
Frisbee – ‘Christmas In My Pocket’
The Morrisons – ‘Sitting In A Trench’
Neil Murray – ‘Merry Merry Christmas’
The Hipcola – ‘Winter Wonderland’
The Moneyshot Cosmonauts – ‘Pink Christmas’
Gentleman Auction House – ‘On The Rooftop’
Mahalia Jackson – ‘Silent Night (46Bliss remix)’

The soundbed was ‘Bluegrass Jingle Bells’ by Carl Vasta
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Three From Leith plugged in The Stage Online – the website for the entertainment industry !

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

By the magic of Google Alerts, I just discovered that The Stage has very kindly given TFL a plug in its “Turn off the TV special: Pick of the podcasts” feature. I’m honoured – I’m mentioned in the same article as the BBC Friday Night Comedy podcasts, and Stephen Fry’s Podgrams.

Wow – I’ve got a warm glow all over now !

Show 161 – The Return Of Old Friends

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

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

An unexpected invite out for coffee which then extended into a Chinese meal and an overnight stay at my parents, then an unexpected visit from the plumber and delayed Christmas shopping means that this week’s show was rather rushed. Not what I’d planned, but real life can sometimes take precedence over the unpaid weekly job !! Nonetheless, there’s some spanky new music from three old friends of TFL – even real life can’t spoil that.

Show 159 – Running On The Reserve Tank

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008

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

Tired, with nothing much to say and in need of a rest and some ibuprofen for my head at the time of the recording, this week’s show settles into an extended period of trip-pop and new-age goodness. I can always tell when the year is drawing to a close and there are only a few more weeks of it left, as a weariness and a need for a break from work and commuting come upon me. This type of music soothes my run-down grey matter, and as the Christmas rush begins to head towards a peak, hopefully it’ll help relax you all too.
