For a limited time only!!

I'm putting up links to my Dropbox where I have uploaded all my past podcasts, some mixes I did for various websites and magazines as well as the live mixes that were recorded in Budvar, Montenegro, during the summer of 2007. I'm afraid you'll have to dig around on this blog to find the track listings of the Podcasts.

its been three years since i did a new podcast... and took something tragic to get me back to my music - the passing away of a friend of mine, neil suddes, at the age of just 41. neil was a huge influence on me musically, if not in many other ways. there is nothing i can do to bring him back - its still hard to believe - but i can at least honour his memory. this podcast is dedicated to him but it sounds more like a celebration of his life.

please take some time to have a look at my webpage where you will be able to follow my exploits in preparing for my ironman triathlon (3.8km swim, 180 bike, 42.2 run!) in brazil in may next year...

hope you enjoy the show and, who knows, maybe i'll get inspired to get back on air!! here's the tracklisting:

persuasive percussion - misirlou
moondog – bird’s lament
carla bley – sing sung lung
the chilites – inner city blues
sir richard – louie louie
george benson quartet – summertime
the third degree - mercy
enoch light and his light brigade – hijack
the jackson 5 – mirrors of my mind
babla and his orchestra – ramaia vatsavaiya

blimey o riley

i can't believe how quickly the time has flown by. almost a year(!) since the last podcast. and i still haven't got around to doing one myself. not to worry, i have an excellent selection from bongómez which more than makes up for my absence.

in the meantime, i'm in the final straight of my training for the amsterdam marathon which takes place of the 19th of october. wish me luck and - even better - if you live in amsterdam, come out and shout for me! i'll let you know how i get on and i should then have some time to get back behind the decks.

where the hell have i been all this time...?

i've hardly been down to the basement for months now. there are two reasons for this... ironically enough, the first is that i thought after having done a podcast for over two years i should at least own an ipod, so i bought myself an ipod touch. and, guess what, i've discovered that it is great being able to listen to music everywhere: in the car, in the gym, even in the swimming pool! i've actually started to buy digital music instead of vinyl... is this the end of an era?

more significantly, i've taken up running. i've even got my playlists organized to be at exactly the right tempo for my steps... i recently ran in the madrid half marathon and managed to raise some money for voces: you can see for yourself here. of course all this training takes away time when i could be doing podcasts.

keep bugging me and i will get on to do another podcast real soon now, i promise!

voces (voices)

i was lucky enough to go to a very exciting event last night, the first concert organised by "voces", a new NGO based in spain, whose aims are to raise awareness (and money) for worthy causes (check they've managed to get support from the most famous and most promising musicians and actors that spain has to offer so its no surprise that the concert was completely sold out (12,000 people!). the musicians seemed to be enjoying it as much as the audience. drop me an email if you are interested in more details.
