It was recorded in our kitchen. An odd place to record a podcast. But it’s Saturday morning and Sonja Sleator and Daniel Lynch live nearby, and, why not? A conversation over a kitchen table and coffee.
Before I go on air, this was the planned running order. Things change and the two “extra” tracks are to be added. The 03h00 repeat has no news which allows me to add a couple of shorties.
All Irish or Irish linked this week (I have been listening to other music, too) and Northern Irish..
Exciting, strong characters, envy, treachery, David Bowie, football violence, navigating around Belfast’s ring of steel. Bad decisions. Realistic and believable. Caroline Music carrier bags.
This was the planned running order – there were a few minor changes in order, (I was a bit tired and opened the wrong fader a couple of times leading to hilarious consequences). There are some notes on the music and artists, too.
I’m listening to about five albums a week, usually when out walking. This week …
At the time of posting this is the planned running order for the show tonight on Slice Audio.
Recently a group on Facebook was started “Friends of Downtown Radio 1976 – 2019”. Many of the people I used to work with have been posting memories and photos. Downtown is where I started in 1979. The 40th anniversary is in November.
Some of the albums I’ve been listening to this week.
This episode of the show was a pre-record. I’m currently on holiday but will be back with a live show from next Friday, the 9th August.
This is the playlist for 2 August. You can hear it on demand here and on MixCloud along with all previous episodes.
This is the plan for tonight from 7:00 UTC. A couple of extra tracks will be added to the 3:00 am Saturday repeat (not sure what just now)
The running order does change during the programme sometimes. An on demand version will be available on Saturday.
The central character “Kit” Carradine, is a writer of espionage novels and has a notion of himself as a spy. He is picked up by a man from the secret service, who inducts him into the darker hall of mirrors world to deliver a message. That’s when the paranoia begins.
In this episode I’m playing music from from Uruguay and previewing a couple of festivals happening over the next weeks on the Iberian peninsula: Festival Músicas do Mundo, Sines, Portugal (FMM) and Festival Intercéltico do Morrazo in Galicia.
From this week we are trying a little experiment by repeating the show. The first live broadcast is at 7:00 pm UTC and an extended repeat at 03:00 am Saturday. During the experiment, I’ll be posting the full programme (warts’n’all).
Listen on demand and read the running order.
Here’s the playlist for the show and the updated “listen again”. If you want a downloadable version let me know.
This is the planned playlist for the show and the stream version.
You can read and hear more about the Sarajevo visit here on the blog.
It has been a long held ambition to visit Sarajevo and another to see Mostar Sevdah Reunion in concert. When it became possible to do both and go to a beer festival, I grabbed the chance.
This is the playlist and the audio. Includes Afro Celt Sound System, Officina Zoe, La Bottine Souriante, Mostar Sevdah Reunion

This week I’m posting the show in two, one hour parts.
An oldies show with a significant difference. Inflammable Material melds punk, post-punk, power pop, and in retrospect some who may have been posers.
This is the album I’m excited about this week.
