podcast #15 - rodríguez special

(from the journal of san diego.) The contemporary expression employed in Spain to indicate a man whose family is out of town and is temporarily a "bachelor" is estar de Rodríguez ("to be Rodríguez), indicating the alias usually assumed during extra-marital relationships, such as "Jones" or "Smith" would be used in similar situations in the United States.

so what better way to use my time other than to do another podcast!

not sorted your summer holidays out yet?

so if croatia is the new greece i reckon montenegro has to be the new croatia... and what better reason for heading down to budva than to see me (ajem!) and quantic amongst other great djs playing in the open air! the venue is kids friendly (i'll be there with the whole family) so don't be shy to combine the beach holiday with the party holiday...

the details of the venue are

"Tudo Beleza festival takes place in CASPER, DJ BAR situated in the old town of Budva. It is in CARA DUSANA street. Walking along the yacht port of Budva this is the LAST ENTRY GATE into the Old Town on the right side. After 30m you will notice a magnificent garden in stone covered by lemon trees, with the finest music in the area - this is CASPER."

calling out for anyone who went to the "world peace soul jazz" sessions

i would love to hear from anyone who came along to world peace soul jazz all those years ago in oxford... it was started by a couple of friends of mine - john cusins and chris swales - then i got involved... those were the days - popping down to london to jam records in the trocadero (RIP) and getting vip treatment from ollie... and being able to play anything as long as it was good... giving away free food so we could dodge the esoteric uk licensing laws and keep going until midnight(!) on a sunday. we even had tom from groove armada as a guest dj (in 1992!).
