Bring in the new….

Happy new year everyone.

Given that creativity often results from adversity we could be in for a good year!

Of course New Year is a good time to take stock, and I’ve done just that over at Penwith Radio. I’ve taken a few of the session tracks performed live on The PM Show over the last 12 months and posted them up on the PM Show Soundcloud page. Including tracks from Tom Dale, Shade of Red, Louella Jade Eke, Lost Dawn and Vektron. Have a listen, and keep tuning in to the show on Thursday at 6pm for more great live sessions and interviews in 2011.

Today I’m mostly listening to DJ Earworm’s Mash-up of 2010 “Don’t Stop The Pop’ – Genius! See the video here.

A busy week on Penwith Radio…

This week is going to be a great week for music lovers on Penwith Radio, so I just wanted to draw your attention to the following treats:

Weds 1st Dec at 3-4pm – I’ll be guest presenting this afternoon slot to host a special guest, Claire Nicolson. This up-and-coming singer will be rolling into town at the beginning of her ‘Sing For Your Supper Tour’ to promote her debut single Toothpaste and Whiskey! Claire has played in Jools Holland’s band, appears on Martina Topley-Bird’s new album and played with many artists including Tom Jones, Dodgy, Kula-Shaker, Mike  Oldfield & Sam Brown. Tune in for a live session and interview. Check out the video for the single here.

Thursday 2nd Dec 6-8pm – In my regular show , The PM Show, I’ll be joined by guests El Cherino. This young Hayle 3 piece will be playing live in the studio and telling me where that name came from!

Friday 3rd Dec 4-5pm – I’ll be co-hosting an hour of the Drivetime show to welcome Liz Lawrence into the studio ahead of her gig at the Zero Lounge. Singer songwriter Liz was described by Tom Robinson on his BBC 6 introducing show as ‘amazing’. She’ll be joining me live for a chat and to share a couple of songs with us. I’ve heard a couple of tracks and Liz has a fantastic voice – you’ll want to remember where you heard her first!

Competition Time

Phew! As if that wasn’t enough – we’ll be running a competition from Weds to Fri for the fabulous prize of two tickets to see Angus & Julia Stone at Falmouth Princess Pavilions on Fri 10th December. There will also be copies of their new CD up for grabs. Listen in from 10am on Weds to hear the question and email the answer into team@penwithradio.co.uk by 5pm on Friday, when the winners will be drawn at random and announced before 6pm.
