So here it is, the 6th episode of Rathole Radio. This was broadcast and recorded at 9pm on Sunday 9th of August 2009 from my studio here on Merseyside, UK. As usual I played an eclectic mix of tracks, we had some fun in the chat room, there was a vote and a live performance. I hope you enjoy listening. Here’s the vital details:

Listener Poll: We had a vote after I received an email from my friend Kevan in Jersey. That’s the original Jersey not New Jersey. He asked if that song C64 by Dollar Rex had his name in it. The vote disagreed and we decided it was probably saying “heaven”. Sorry Kev 😉

Bill Hicks

Words Of Wisdom: 30:10 – The fabulous Bill Hicks. A great hero of mine, this is a short clip from his live album Relentless. It’s about his travels in the Southern states of the USA. I also mentioned a great book I read about him, here’s the link. RIP Bill. Remember everyone, it’s just a ride.

Gig Alert!! Don_S who was present in the chat room during the show plays piano with the band Quantum Jazz. He has a gig in a small town in Denmark called Hundested, at Blå Ansjos. That’s Friday 14th of August, if you’re nearby go and check them out.

Live Acoustic Track – 56:35 – I decided to play one of my own songs this time. I had many requests for original stuff, no honestly 🙂 This is a song I wrote a few years ago now called “Reality”. You can find a recorded version at Shedmusic.net if you want to download it. I release most of my music under the artist name Sonic Real Estate.  CC BY-SA Licensed

Email Competition: Send me your amusing suggestions for my catchphrase. It be something I say lot like “this one reminds me of ” or something you think I should say as a catchphrase. If it’s funny and I like it then you could win. I don’t know what the prize will be yet. I’m thinking of something like a CD or a book, that will be announced later.
