Big news on the Blues Train front!
The first shows from January 2011 saw a Saturday evening slot, which eventually turned into a Sunday and then, every other Sunday. It has been a pleasure to be able to do the show for you all but there is so much ‘competition’ on UK radio on a Sunday, we are all falling over ourselves. On my 6pm slot, I am up against three of the best blues show out there, two of which made the shortlist for the British Blues Awards. Although the majority of my audience will always be via the listen again podcast or the various repeats, it is also great to have some company during the live shows. Exchanging comments on Facebook while people listen, is always a thrill….and I would like to have more along for the ride!
So…as of WEDNESDAY 17TH OCTOBER 2012…I will be swapping shifts…every other Wednesday, 8-9pm UK time.
There are no other UK blues radio shows at that time on that day…so I hope that a few more people will be able to join me live. My live show on Sunday 7th October, 6-7pm, will be my last one at that time and day….so join me on http://www.fromefm.co.uk if you can.
The show will continue to bring you playlists that no other radio show has…a great mix of new blues and roots….I keep on looking for the very best, so keep tuning in and tell all your friends!
The great news keeps coming….Wednesday’s Even Worse also runs every two weeks, on the same dates as Blues Train and will be on air immediately before me 6-8pm. So please make an evening of it…more details on https://www.facebook.com/Wednesdays.Even.Worse?fref=ts and have a look at the excellent http://www.bluesinthesouth.com/ - the show and website run by IAN McKENZIE, one of the most respected jocks on the airwaves.
