I am doing a special podcast next month where someone else will be picking all the songs (help!), so to make sure you kids don’t miss out on a bunch of tunes picked by me I thought I would knock together a summer mix that you can listen to in this lovely sunny weather (ahem). Somehow it got completely out of control and I ended up with 80+ tracks to pick from, this is not unusual for me but I thought that was way too many to shove up here. So instead I decided to do a two-sided tape/vinyl mix. Side One is called Summer Days and is a little bouncier and dancey, and then Side Two is a little more chilled and for listening to as the sun sets and you are winding down from a fun day.

Well it’s getting late so I will keep this short but sweet, you can find Dave Hughes all over the internet but wherever you choose to follow him look out for an announcement of a new tour tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed he comes to a venue near you.
For next month I will be doing a Bruce Springsteen special as I want to celebrate his fantastic new album, so if you have a favourite track of his please feel free to let me know what it is and why and you will probably be included in next month’s show. Cool eh?

Hello and welcome to the latest episode of slideintomyhand, I hope you have all had a wonderful 2012 so far. It’s been ok here in sunny Dundee (although I say that with the wettest day of the year happening outside, humph) so I have no complaints.
This month we have a wonderful special guest in Lis (aka lastyearsgirl) introducing a couple of great tracks of her choice which is cool, so a big thanks to her. Go visit her site and be enlightened, challenged, and introduced to new music. Look out for more special guests in the coming months.
Apart from that the show is your usual mix of tunes and me waffling, there are two glaring errors which are my fault (or the red wines). First off, got mixed up between Lis’ new and old tracks when I wrote down the order so sorry about that. And I can’t read my own handwriting and Lindstrom’s track is Deja Vu (my u looked like an a). I am so professional it is scary.

2. Colour Me Wednesday – Holiday From Your Life

4. Jenny Owen Youngs – Voice on Tape

11. Mi & L’au – Faces
12. KRS-One – What it is/outro
Wow here we are in a New Year and into my “3rd year” of recording (that’s slightly cheating as I did only start mid-2010, but stats can be used how we want them right?). I hope you all had a great festive period and welcomed 2012 in with style? I managed till 4am which is good going, especially with those whisky and bourbon shots.
This is a bit of a tidy up episode as I’ve included tracks from 2011 that I’ve not been able to include before. There’s still plenty left as well so we shall have to see how 2012 goes before working out if I can sneak any of them in.
So yeah, sit back, pour yourself your drink of choice, and enjoy.
