More new music than you can eat in one sitting

One way and another I have a heap of music to listen to at the moment. Try this for size:

o Brian Eno & Jah Wobble – Spinner
o Brian Eno & Laraaji – Ambient 3: Days of Radiance
o Brian Eno – Future Light Lounge Proposal @ Bonn 1998
o Can – Tago Mago
o Magazine – Real Life
o Magazine – The Correct Use of Soap
o Matching Mole – Matching Mole
o Porcupine Tree – Futile EP
o Roy Harper – Live 1978
o Soft Machine – 1 & 2
o Soft Machine – Third
o The Residents – The Warner Brothers Album
o Fripp & Eno Live London 1975
o Keith Jarrett w European Quartet - Live Frankfurt 1976
o King Crimson – Live Stockholm 2003
o Magazine – Secondhand Daylight
o Robert Fripp String Quintet – Kan-non Power
o Tabla Beat Science – Tala Matrix
o The Residents – Duck Stab + Buster & Glen + Goosebump
o This Heat – This Heat
o Bjork – Medulla
o The Blue Nile – High
o Scissor Sisters – Scissor Sisters
o Elbow – Cast of Thousands
o Echo & The Bunnymen – What are you going to do with your life?
o David Sylvian – The Good Son vs The Only Daughter
o Sylvian / Sakamoto – World Citizen

I love being overwhelmed with the amount of music I have to listen to. Much fun will be had over the coming days wading through it all, and absorbing all the ideas and styles.

On top of all this, I also have been listening to podcasts by a few people. Two which have grabbed my attention so far are PodCastPaul and Richard Vobes. Both are based in the UK and produce new shows of 30 to 40 minutes in length every few days (Vobes is most days!) They combine chat with music and provide something which you can’t get on the airwaves at the moment. The commercial radio channels in the UK are all the same and generate a bland mix of music and inane nonsense. I like that fact that podcasts allow anyone to put together their own thoughts, tastes and idiosyncrasies without being restricted by commercial considerations. I’ll be posting more on this as I work out whether I can put together my own podcasts.

Paul Nicholls from the wonderful Podcastpaul.com nudged me in your direction. Just wanted to say thanks for the mention in your shownotes and appreciate the fact that you listen. I admit I haven't heard your show - so I am going to take a listen now!

Best wishes

Hi Richard

Thanks a lot for the comment. I'm still working through all the technology to get my first show up and running. If only it were easier!

I'm still listening to your show each day, and love it.

Give me a call if you need a hand - its a bit daunting at first.

But once you get going is easy. Hell - what do I know I am still a novice!!!

Thanks for listening - really appreciate it.
