RatholeRadio 74 – 18th Mar 2012
Posted on March 20, 2012
Another Rathole Radio is upon and this one is a bumper edition. 71mins to be precise. I must have felt more chatty or something, hard to see how that’s possible. This was broadcast on Mother’s Day here in the UK but I didn’t have a special song for that. Instead I performed a folk song to celebrate St Patrick’s Day on Saturday. I hope you enjoy the show.
- 00:00 – Freeky Cleen & Dickey F – GONE TRAIN BLUES – CC BY-SA Licensed – 2 artists I’ve played separately before but now they’ve joined forces to create this great slice of blues rock. You don’t wanna miss it. There’s a whole album available on Jamendo.
- 06:40 – Tracing Arcs – Babydoll (just chillin’ mix) – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A great track that put me in mind of Portishead a bit at times. No bad thing.
- 12:47 – Farewell Republic – Wake – Licensed Unknown – Heard this via fellow North West podcaster Alan Carr and his show Darkhorse Radio.
- 22:32 – Phil Lee – 25 Mexicans – License Unknown – Another one I heard via Alan Carr when he submitted it for AMPed some time ago. I’ve been keeping it in my pocket. What an artist Phil Lee is and what a song.
- 26:25 – Silent Strike – Infinit – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – This one I heard via CCHits.
- Rathole Gig News – 4 acts in the line up now: The Corinthians, P’Chenga, Thom Morecroft and of course 20lb Sounds.
- 36:26 – EGOMOTEL – LAST NIGHT –CC BY-NC-SA Licensed
- 40:17 – Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps – Whet My Appetite – License Unknown – This is a track I heard on The Roadhouse podcast. Read her bio here – http://www.teresajames.com/bio-v2.htm
- 49:06 – LIVE TRACK – A bit of folk for St Patrick’s Day, “Dirty Old Town” by Ewan MacColl. I heard The Dublinersversion many times while growing up. My Dad is a big fan.
- 55:16 – Bill Borman – No Man Is An Island – CC BY-NC Licensed – Another track from CCHits. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of it but it quickly grew on me. A powerful song and a great performance full of dynamics and feeling. Enjoy!
- 68:15 – Model Society – Horizons – License Unknown – Another poached AMPed submission. This time fro Rowley at The DarkCompass Podcast. These guys were played by Steve Lamaq on 6 Music apparently too, I can see why.
