Hello and welcome to 2013, we kick off the year with Episode 31 of slideintomyhand. It is full of quality tracks for your enjoyment, fingers crossed that you agree with me.

For the next few months I am going to do two podcasts a month, but they are only going to be around 30 minutes each so don’t worry I won’t be boring you to death. This was a suggestion from one of my listeners as they felt it would be easier to digest, let me know if this is the case. There’s a comments section below these words here, or you can find me on twitter @slideintomyhand, or Facebook. Again search for Slideintomyhand.

Anyway, on with the music…..

So to end 2012 I have prepared a Kristin Hersh special, with music from her whole back catalogue including offerings from Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave.

This is an artist I have so much respect for, and listening back to all her albums in preparation for this podcast I don’t remember hearing a single bad song. Is that too much praise? Well hopefully after listening to this podcast you will be in a position to answer as I am hoping it leads you to purchasing everything she has ever done. I’m like an acolyte here aren’t I? Oooops.

Anyway, I do hope you love listening to her music as much as I do, let me know in the comments here or find me on facebook, or follow me on twitter @slideintomyhand.

Thank you again for listening to my podcast, I hope 2012 has treated you well. I will see you again in 2013 with more fantastic music offerings.

Welcome back to slideintomyhand, apologies for there not being an episode last month. A mixture of being busy and little internet access got in the way, hopefully that won’t happen again. It does of course mean you are more excited about the latest episode and will be downloading it in your thousands right?

This is being recorded in-between life on the road, if only it was as exciting as that sounds. I do enjoy my work, but living in hotels is dull after I while. I miss proper food, ie my own cooking. Only a month left of that life though, so no complaints.

Not been listening to much new music, need to get back into that habit especially as I have a hard drive of stuff waiting to be listened to.

Anyway enough of my waffle. Some quality tunes this month, I hope that you agree. Leave comments or tweet me @slideintomyhand.

Episode 27 – The Old Gold Special

Posted by No comments

Welcome to episode 27 of the slideintomyhand where I have tried something new and decided to interview someone and allow them to choose all the music, I hope you get as much enjoyment listening to it as we did recording it. The special guest is my friend Jay Stringer and he talks about his ace new book that is coming out on 24th July, Old Gold, along with music that is important to him and that has links to his writing. It’s a bit like Desert Island Discs but without the production values.

You can play the podcast by pressing play here:

Or by downloading from this link.

There’s quite a lot of information and links mentioned in the podcast so here they are for easy reference.

Jay can be found on twitter @JayStringer, whilst Eion Aaron Miller, the main character from the book, can be found @OldGoldNovel

The soundtrack that we mention is on spotify and can be listened to by clicking here (you will need to download Spotify for it to play), but please listen to my podcast first as there is a lot worth listening to.

For a taster of Jay’s writing you can get Faithless Street for the Kindle. It’s a collection of short stories based in the world of Old Gold and is available for free till 2nd July, or a measly 99c or 77p after then.

Old Gold is released on 24th July and can be pre-ordered from Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle, and in paperback at The Book Depository.

Finally, sign up to Jay’s newsletter by visiting his website where you will get lovely messages and joyful news straight into your inbox.

Thanks for listening and reading, please let me know how you thought it went as it was an interesting experiment and I would like to know what you thought of it.

Summer Mix

Posted by No comments

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.

I hope you enjoy them, let me know.
