If you want to submit a tune to the podcast

I ask that you simply send me 2 mp3s with your name as part of the filename eg

Nick Tann-Dont Make Me Wait.mp3 .

That way it won't get lost also it will show up on my iPod which I listen to a lot.

A link to your website where people can find out about you and where I can link to your name if I play you.

When you submit a track you should also receive an invite to the Artists Google Group, if you don't just give me a nudge and I'll fix it.

I know there are other ways i.e. dropboxes, Soundcloud etc that other podcasters like to use but I like to keep it simple.

I love getting new music and I promise I listen to every track and if you send me something and I DON'T play it, email me and ask me why.

I try and answer EVERY email.

Is This Thing On? Podcast Number 40

In a short and sweet podcast this week I played Haunted Stereo, Sonny, Kidd Russell, Shoulders of Giants, Coloured Lines, Clara Barker (rhymes with Sarah) Apoc told us about another Canadian Band this time it was Ennis and I played a track from my new album.

I ranted about a new crusade I want all original artists you join, the cleverly named "Sound as a Pound. I take no credit for the name, that was thought up by Stu Crane from Wax Ersatz.

I may have sounded a little distracted this week. Firstly from a steam train which passed by about half way through and also by the fact that I was also streaming the podcasts construction using my Ustream channel.

Next week is the jazz special and I will also be announcing the most amazing competition I have ever held.
You will love it!

Is This Thing On? Podcast Number 39

In a podcast that thumbs it's nose and sticks two fingers up at the music industry I played the brilliant Tim Farrell from America, the fabulous Occasional Orchestra from England, the amazing Lite from Japan, the sublime Wax Ersatz from England, an interview from the very handsome Gideons Demise (and a tune), the stunning Mohatra from Bosnia Herzegovina, Sand river from England and a little thing I knocked up earlier an instrumental of a song I wrote a few years ago.
A bit proggy in places and there's nothing wrong with that!
