Hello and welcome to episode 19 of slideintomyhand, can’t quite believe I’ve got that far. Should I celebrate number 20, or have a 21st party?

This month we have a guest contribution from my friend Karl Handy who offers an old track and new(ish) track that he loves, if you want to be included in a future podcast email me or leave a comment below.

We also promote a gig by Lastyearsgirl that is in Glasgow on 2nd December at the Old Hairdressers, follow this link here and book tickets and attend. You’ll have a chance to shake my hand and hug Lastyearsgirl, what more incentive do you need? Oh, the music is ace as well as she’s booked Franz Nicolay, Chris T-T and Dave Hughes.

And finally here is the promised video for the Erato song that is lighting up the internet with its greatness, I hope you enjoy it as much as me.

Episode 15 – Football Special

Hello and welcome to episode 15 of slideintomyhand, I’m sure that is two episodes in a row I have pronounced it wrongly on the podcast. You’d think I could get the name of my podcast correct wouldn’t you?

Anyway, it’s a football theme this month so there is a lot of chat about football, but the music is mainly by indie and rock bands so there should be something to enjoy for the non-footie fans (philistines as they are more commonly known) amongst you.

I mentioned a few things in the podcast, so here is some info about subbuteo, Mark E Smith reading out the Final Scores, James McFadden’s wonder goal against France, and the march to the stadium before that game.

Well I hope you enjoy the podcast, and good luck to you and your teams for the season ahead, unless you are an old firm/dundee/millwall/crystal palace/roma/arsenal/birmingham city fan.
