I’ve enjoyed watching the TV series “Nashville” which played on British TV recently on More4. What do you know, they’re all stars outside of the show, one of the actors came from the Midlands!
This week summer may come back to us; and when it does, this song will be sure to make you smile!
My eldest nephew sang the British National Anthem on local radio today, a real proud moment. I recorded the show and uploaded the section where he makes Jo Malin almost cry!
You’ll die of cute overload when you see this video! Crayola Doesn’t Make A Color For Your Eyes.
Insert the obligatory Tennessee reference here. It’s this week, I fly this week! This video looks like it’s straight out of Hickman County, the similarity is unreal.
Caution : This week the news that a pair of panda’s have just 36 hours to do the deed; It reminded me that long distance leads to an intensity like no other.
With our local election campaigns getting underway today and a woefully un-human opposition to Barrack Obama being solidified … I’m gonna have to go with Ani Difranco today!
With Valentines day around the corner, it’s hard not to dedicate this Music Monday to my country girl. Here’s a dose of Primal Scream!
Music Monday hasn’t happened while I’ve been away, but I have the perfect song to show you the journey I’ve just made to see the love of my life.
Valentine’s day, perfectly aligned with Music Monday.
After the fire, comes the smoke. You have songs that save your life and this song in 2010, stopped me doing something utterly stupid.
A big gulp for Music Monday, I tend to play this song when I feel the urgent need to consider other people’s situations.
Oh boy is this exciting! Alex Nackman returns this month with an awesome new album!
I’m having one of *those* Mondays!
Happy New Year everyone, I’ve just had the craziest week! Music Monday today I feel should be uplifting.
You know what? I’m fed up of the crap of 2010, I’m 30 and in desperate need of saving Christmas 2010.
Sticking with the theme of dreams for Music Monday, I’m gonna play you one of my favourite “dream pop” tunes.
A twee little laugh at myself, Narcoleptic dancing without Cataplexy anyone?
While at the Summer Sundae, we were treated to this gem of a performance from acoustic czar Stuart O’Connor, very ambient and chilled, check it out!
One of the acts I was really interested in seeing at Godiva was Kirsty Almeida and her band. Very interesting looking performer is Kirsty and her artwork is well cool
One thing I love about finding music on the web is happy accidents. While watching an Imogen Heap video, I spots an acoustic Immi cover version by this wonderful young girl, Kina Grannis.
This time a change of scene, a blast from my very distant past and a tip of the hat to Wimbeldon, which starts today!
In danger of letting my Music Monday slip, but have no fear Brummie band Rogue States are here to give me a reason to blog today. I’ve mentioned these guys before but they are so good, it bears repeating.
Strewn from a carrier bag in a bus stop were ten’s of tapes that seemed to be abandoned, I sifted through the selection, and chose some of the best sounding ones!
This week I’m looking ahead to the Summer Sundae Festival in Leicester and am really quite excited by this band who’ll be playing at the Festival; Isbells.
Another Monday, another #musicmonday post! This one provided by local Birmingham cheeky lads, The Twang! I’ve only just picked up their lastest album, Jewellery Quarter and I have to say it’s perfect for summer days!
Natty I believe is a modern day mirror of Marley, with a contemporay edge. At Wednesday’s gig, he told us what the deal was with the EP, hence the blog post about this innovative idea!
Perfect for a warm up to a night out, a wind down from a hectic day, it’s great road trip music and awesome for watching birds, bees and butterflies fly next to your train. This is nice music!
when I suggested on the Save 6Music Facebook group, based on branding that, perhaps 6Music could be kept but under the “Extra” brand as Radio 2 Extra, I didn’t realise it may catch on, but it may have!
Quite an interesting series of blog posts and tweets have popped up in my circle of contacts, pondering the notion that media was social long before social networking, behold, the mixtape!
We’re not yet finished with the destruction of digital radio in this country! The BBC are twisting the knife in DAB’s heartland; niche station choice, why go digital when there’s no station choice?
I find the current situation on Digital Radio Switchover in the UK rather baffling. The DAB Digital Radio platform isn’t fit for the purpose, but there is a deeper question. Do we even need radio in the digital world?
While listening to my recommends on last.fm this amazingly powerful voice started playing, tipped as the hottest sound of 2010!
If ever there were a local band who are worthy of your listening time it’s Rogue States, a very likable band based and giging in and around Birmingham and London. Find out more.
Just one song from 2000 – 2009? It’s so hard! Find out what I chose as my song of the decade.
Acoustic music is one of my passions, I love listenable, intelligent and quite frankly awesome acoustic artists. So I wanted to blog and stand up for this type of music, some exciting videos in here!
I was sat in Starbucks the other day and rather than playing the same old tired Christmas songs, they had quite a ska revival going on! Find out which tune I’m linking to here.
