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.
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.
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.
