So, here it is, the first episode. I recorded this last night, Sunday 31st May 09, at 9pm UK time. It was a learning experience and trying to chat to people online at the same time is tough. You can hear a couple of moments when a song finished abruptly and nearly caught me out. I’m nothing if not professional… so that’s nothing then. I hope you enjoy this eclectic ride of music and waffling anyway. I also played a live acoustic tune which I’ll describe in more detail later. For now here’s all the information you need on the tracks I played:

Live Track: 33:55

The live track for this episode is “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” an old blues standard performed by me with my trusty acoustic guitar. I’d like to dedicate it to a friend of mine who sadly passed away not too long ago. A truly amazing blues and jazz singer in his own right, and a guy who taught me a hell of a lot – Ken Dickenson.

That’s if for this time, I hope you enjoyed my first attempt at this. I could certainly use some practice with mixing and presenting at the same time, but it’s early days. I could also do with learning not to say “errm” every other word. I’ll try and work on that.

In the excitement of recording and streaming my first show I neglecting to say this properly on air, if you have any suggestions for music or any other comments, please send them to me. Maybe you play music yourself, you’re in a band and would like to be on the show. That’s great. Send me a demo or whatever you have. I’m ALWAYS interested in new music. As long as I can play it on the show legally. If there’s someone you’d like me to interview or perhaps a song you’d like me to learn and play live, just send it in.

Please send your emails to: show AT ratholeradio DOT org

It just remains for me to say thank you very for taking the time to listen. I hope there was at least one new artist in the bunch you’ll be persuing, but not like a stalker, that wouldn’t be nice. I hope you’ll join me for another show in 2 weeks time. It’ll be Sunday June 14th at 9pm UK Time. You can get involved live and help me make the show, this all relies on listener input so please don’t be afraid to speak up. Details of how to listen to the live show are over on the live page.  I hope to see you there next time. Take care all
