Olli’s Radio Show Sunday 12th Jan 2014

Olli On The Radio 12-01-2014
The Voice of North Devon

3.00 – 6.00 pm Oline and on DAB

Another Sunday has come round and once again I don’t feel prepared. Writing these articles about what I plan to do helps me to stay focussed and of course I can refer to them when I am in the studio.

I didn’t do one for the last two weeks, although I did start one for last week and it is still in the “drafts” section of the blog.

Olli’s Diet

The big question today is, of course, how is my diet coming along. I weighed myself live on air on Sunday 29th December and I weighed 15 stone 12 lbs 

Weigh in last Sunday 5th January I was 15 stone 6 lbs so off to a great start with a 6lb loss.

What will I weigh this afternoon?  Listen in to the middle hour of the show for the result.

Unsigned Music

The most important part of the show for me is the six unsigned tracks that I am allowed to chose to play for you.

The recent release of XRP radio’s Journey Through The Genres album gives me a wealth of new material to introduce you to, much of it new material from bands that I have already played in 2013 so I will be picking six tracks from the 61 on the album.

Vulpes by Podracer
Hard edged Pop Punk / Alt Rock from Dundalk Ireland.
Afraid Of The Dark [live] by Sound Of The Sirens
Beautiful harmonies and acoustic guitar from two beautiful young ladies from Exeter
Can’t Stop Lovin’ You [Live] by Kitty and the Lost Boys
Live track from this Plymouth and London based blues/rock/pop band, led by Kitty Arrabella
Play With Fire by 68-75
From Atlanta Georgia, female fronted band with Humble Pie influences and a Janis Joplin-esque lead singer.
Topaz by Paint Box
Punchy funky base driven classic rock from Philadelphia PA
Patience by US (the band)
I can’t play Fallen Satellite (the track on the album) because there is a naughty word in it.
