My beloved home Purple Radio, had a few technical glitches last week as we moved over to our new service provider, so I recorded this off-line for your delight and delectation. You’d think, perhaps, that would mean a more professional and well-sculpted show, wouldn’t you? But no, tis the usual mix of talking crap and playing amazing tunes. Still, I hope you’ll like it.
During the show I ramble on a bit about trains, cos last week I went on hols around Devon and Somerset and got to visit the Didcot Railway Centre, the West Somerset Railway and the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway. AND go to an amazing wedding. It was fecking lovely and I think my rambling goes to show just how relaxed and wonderful it was. Fuq it, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
So, if I’ve tempted you into my wee musical web, you may download or stream the show from here.
