But how two flavours? Piley provides you with a meat-feast menu, while I offer a veggie option..

Podrophenia - the food edition. All you can eat from 8PM tonight...
Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy - pastrami on rye on our trip to Carnegie Deli 2012
After a two month absence (holidays, DJing) I’m back in the Podrophonic saddle with Pal Piley tonight. So, what’s the theme for June’s tunes – 'Food', and joining us in the SFOB Crow’s Nest for a taste test, Steve from the Steve's Salt Beef Bar, serving the area’s finest Salt Beef say those in the know…
Also onboard official Podrophenia photographer Paul Hughes, there to snap the action for a future feature… I’ll be going for a veggie (p’raps piscatorian) option, with a menu that may include blackberries, catfish, apples, beer, marmalade.
We’re serving up from 8pm at Ship full of Bombs HQ – swing buy and fill your boots at the buffet..

Art and about
It's that time of year when Southend's answer to St Ives - Leigh on Sea, puts on a parade of the finest artistic talent from in and outside of the area with its Art Trail. Taking a polite ramble around the upper regions of SS9, The Broadway, Leigh Road, or down to to the Old Town, you can tick off a list of thirty six artists displaying at twenty three venues - shops, cafes and bars. From dynamic ceramics to local musician themed coasters on sale at Micky Denny's improv Record Shop.. which, will be host to a few in-store performances on Saturday 14th June...
Grab your guide to the LAT hereabouts...
For earthier entertainment of a Saturday night, at Southend's most musical boozer - The Railway, there's a double fisted ding-dong of Thames Delta dynamite and London garage a go-go..
In the Essex corner: Bif Bam Pow return the The Railway for their first gig since, booming the roof off in their pre-season friendly with the Len Price 3 (match report here at The Retroman Blog).
In the Capital Corner: Londiniums Sonic Jewels head the up the bill. Described as 'Hendrix, MC5 and The Stooges whilst giving a nod of approval to 70's Glam Rock'
In between and after these two sets of tear-aways -I'll be pitching simpatico sounds into a strictly non playlisted run of whatever-fits-the-mood-tunes....
A couple roaring hits of late have included..
It all starts 8:30pm Southend Central Time. Come on down and shake whatever wobbles....
