Hungover on Chorlton FM

So, Chorlton FM ends for another year and it's been a lot of fun to be involved with it. DJing at the launch party was a good, if stressful, experience (why does the equipment never work as you want it to?) and being the "producer" for a couple of That Morning Thing shows with Jonathan Darwin was another good experience - (Producer: (n) a person who does the occasional bit of tech op-ing, makes brews for guests and chats to the DJ during songs to give him something else to talk about when he's on air).

Anyway, the highlight was, naturally, the two shows that I presented...

Hungover with Accident and Emergency (10am; 22 May 2011)
Asked to put together a set of my own music (the station is all about promoting local "talent" after all), I elected to play a selection of tracks by the A+E men - Brooksoid, Radiator Boy (that's me) and Spott.

Radiator Boy - Cumin In Your Ears (early version)
Brooksoid - Don’t Be Afraid (Organ Tune)
Spott - Ode to Gin
Radiator Boy - Someday
Brooksoid - Comfortable Holes
Radiator Boy - The Drop (Parts i, ii and iv)
Spott - Niblits
Brooksoid - BestFriend
Radiator Boy - Direct Cut
Spott - LV
Radiator Boy - Heavens Above
Brooksoid - Oranje-Boom
Spott - 1888
Spott - Tilted
Radiator Boy - Pearl
Brooksoid - We Are Observing Your Earth

"Cumin In Your Ears" was an experiment with Ableton software - improvised and recorded in about 5 minutes shortly before I did the show, hence the rough and ready feel to the track. I may come back to it at some point...

Hungover with Tim Wright (10am; 29 May 2011)
Allowed back for another session, this was focussed more on music by other people, but including three of my favourites from the A+E show. Also includes my ramblings and an ident courtesy of my daughter.

Bibio - Lover's Carvings
Radiator Boy - Pearl
Bill Drummond - Julian Cope is Dead

Fujiya and Miyagi - Collarbone
