Radio One Year On
Three studios, fifty two weeks and fourty seven Podrophenia's later* - Piley and I cross the waymarker that is one year of Radio Podrophenia and our live Tuesday night natter-abouts.
And what a twelve month run we've had.... a gallery of guests pooling together members of The Damned (Roman Jugg) local musicians (Dave Woodcock, Darren Jones, Andy J Gallagher), writers (Syd Moore, Daryl Easlea) artists (Simon Monk), regulars (Fi Jacobs) and Podrophenia Board Members ( Pouchie, Phil Hubbs, Dan, Marmite, Jack Gestures, Gary Fowles). Even a live outing with Len Price 3 and a handful of magazine mentions.
A huge salute is due to our live listening chums (speaking and silent types), the take away downloaders, jingle-makers (Hubbs, Drakey, PH Send) and all the board commentators, contributors and regulars with special mentions going to Drakey, Hannah, JoDB, Lil, Dan, Phil Hubbard, Captain Kettle, Iceman Sam, Reado Jr, Martin, Maxwell, Marmite, E F Rice, Jack Gestures, Retroman, Mark Underwoood, Dog Faced Boy for propping up the bar from week to week.
So what spectacular spin and whistles have we got planned for tonight - well, ermmm, we're going for covers (again), the theme we blasted off with three years ago, and reheated for our first radio run-out last year. Expect to hear Ella getting heavy, splashes of Schlager, Indian psychedelic/hard rock and behold the Golden Voice of Prague.
If you missed last week's Podophenia a fully loaded edition with a storming performance and live session from Dave Woodcock, the latest signing to Blow Up Records - fill your boots here, or via iTunes..
*Should be our fifty second show, but due to the odd tech meltdown and holidays - tonight comes in as number fourty eight.
