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
harry raboniwitz and the london festival orchestra- quiller
godiego – monkey magic
dee edwards – why can’t there be love
the deirdre wilson tabac – I can’t keep from crying sometimes
chaquito – special project
ramsey lewis – blue bongo
m + j - rejoyce

Dear heavy I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. Being your friend Neil an inspiration in your life, and for what I can hear you're still doing a great job, that means that you haven't lose none of them. They're both still with you. Take care.

I can't seem to get to your podcasts. Are they not hosted anymore?
