Just finished compiling my first Louder Than War radio show for 2022. It’ll be my fifth show for the station and the feedback has been very positive. Anyone who puts together a regular radio show will tell you how time consuming and how much effort goes into doing so. Sure, I could rock up at 10pm on a Monday night and play two hours of random stuff off my hard drive, and probably get away with it. But that’s not really how it’s done… No, I get sent loads of stuff – looking forward to airing forthcoming releases from Oorya and Tits Up on Monday – and it’s both a joy and endurance to trawl through it. Also there’s sessions to organise… Unfortunately I don’t have a studio for a band to broadcast live, so they have to be pre-recorded. Howl In The Typewriter recorded their recent session and sent it to me. Kieron Dyson has actually invited me to his house to record his session, which will aired this Monday (3rd Jan). Further ahead, there’ll hopefully be sessions from Oorya, Rhys Trimble (Lolfa Binc) and Why Bother?
Why indeed bother… Because I loves it I do…
See you Monday 10pm on Louder Than War Radio (listen here)
Diary of a Madman
My radio show kickstarts, or reboots again tonight… I’m both nervous and excited at the prospect.
Since the demise of TudnoFM my show has attempted broadcasts with Facebook, Mixcloud and YouTube with varying success / failure. Much to the extent that I only managed three shows thus far this year… More
I’ve spent the last couple of months rehearsing a little side project under the tag of Welsh Rebel Outpost with Rhys Mwyn and Cumi Pants (Alan Matthews to his mum).
Far from being an Anhrefn / 4Q not-so-supergroup, the idea was that of Rhys who wants to do a remembrance / benefit for those within the Welsh music scene who are no longer with us.
That list is sadly very long, and made even longer by the tragic loss of Ectogram drummer Maeyc Hewitt only last week.More
