REM Special

This is a special podcast that I had to make, a normal edition will come out next week but I could not allow the very sad demise of REM go without a dedicated show. This band meant so much to me over the years, it was the first real band that I attached myself to as a teenager and Automatic for the People helped me through my teenage years. Teenage angst eh?

I haven’t spoken too much through the whole thing as I wanted to fit in a song from each album, most of which are my choice but there are also selections from Last Years Girl and Tidal Wave of Indifference. It is still a little longer, around an hour twenty, apologies. I hope that doesn’t put you off.

I also apologise for my voice sounding a little weird, but I was aware of my housemate already being in bed in the room next to mine so I had to lower my tone.

As an addition, my mate Karl got in a memory of REM too late for inclusion, as I was recording the episode as he tweeted me. But he remembers ‘It’s the end of the world as we know it’ playing at my London leaving night. We were at a club in Angel called Feeling Gloomy that was ace fun, I don’t think my friends knew I could dance so much. Grainne tweeted asking if she was there, I think that says everything about what was drunk that night ;o)

So what are your REM memories? Let me know in the comments section. I loved this band so I hope you love the podcast. Goodbye Michael, Bill, Mike and Peter.

Episode 3

Welcome to Episode 3 of my podcast, it was made late into the night so I hope there aren’t too many mistakes or ummms and ahhhhs for you to endure. This episode comes sponsored by my good friend The Tidal Wave of Indifference (aka Stuart) so look out for a couple of his favourite tracks in the podcast, and then head over to his website to read reviews on albums and live shows, and some every good interviews with up and coming bands.

If you would also like to get involved and have a linkup with your website, contact me and we’ll sort something out.

Uni is keeping me busy, whilst at the same time being fun, but don’t worry I am still finding time to listen to new music so it shouldn’t get in the way of future podcasts and your enjoyment ;o)

So without further ado, for your pleasure and enjoyment, this months podcast.
