Building a playlist as I go

Around the World 23 August 2019 – Playlist

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.

Henry McDonald – Two Souls – book review

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 week I’ve been listening to …

I’m listening to about five albums a week, usually when out walking. This week …

Hrdza’s new album Neskrotený

“Welcome to Slovakia” they sing on Hit, a track on Hrdza’s new album Neskrotený. It is a thrill of an album using wit, style and excellent musicianship.

Community Podcasters are the new Punks

Three chords and a guitar? Community podcasters have an audio recorder and a determination to have their voices heard. Just like punks in the 1970s who demystified the record industry.

My new Mixcloud channel

After much messing about I have signed up to Mixcloud to try it out. Not so many clever mixes, more a playlist. 

This is a Song from Europe part 1 (there may be more) and the first episode on what I call Davy Sims’s World Music Radio.
