Lovely stuff.  Will keep me company on the way to and from work.

I was thinking just the other day that it would be fun to do a podcast / show of blues ish music- but the copyright issues make it unfeasible.  Unless, with Richard's dastardly cunning, you stick firmly to the scratchy old stuff!

Edited:  to add that I appear to have misinderstood Mixcloud.  Which has licensing and therefore doesn't have any copyright restrictions.  Perhaps its time for me to make a radio show too!

Thanks for the heads up, Phil!

Brings back wonderful memories when I first found this site and listened to the Weenie Juke virtually round the clock! :D

Cheers,

Pan

Thanks for the plugs men, you might say I have been sort of focused elsewhere (not prison!) for some time, but nevertheless have been lurking all the while and had certainly not deserted the site.

Anyway, I have to say the lure of the microphone and the fun of making of some silly links to join up some nice musac finally got the better of me and galvsnised me into slow action, so unfortunately it looks as though I am back  :-X

Mendip Slim is correct in that Mixcloud do sort out the copywright issues, the downside is that I found it a bumpy voyage of discovery when it came to posting and am still not happy with it, amazingly there is no blues category as posts have to go under the jazz heading - I did ask but got nowhere, seems they are more interested in increasing the subscriptions.  By updating some of my shows that were on the greatly lamented Juke I am aiming to get a dozen shows up and then add to that.

Nice to be back.

Hello Richard, and all:
I want to commend you for, and recommend others check out your recent show that showcased Western Swing. I really enjoyed it, probably more so than the blues you usually play. This because I'm more familiar with much of the country blues stuff, and I really enjoy being exposed to the more unfamiliar tunes and artists.  Although I recognized many of the better known names, I still had not heard those tunes, and there were many names and bands I had not heard of.
More of this, please!

The show: https://www.mixcloud.com/wmpb/its-still-prewar-material-but-just-for-a-change/

Dave - thanks, I'll really glad to get the feedback.

It was a tricky one, as I wasn't sure whether to do the show since, as much as I like Westrn Swing the show is ostensibly blues based and the deviation may not suit all - still, on the other hand I suppose I can play what I want!

So the short answer to your request is, yes I will cobble up another one  :-X Now, the guitar on your avatar looks like a lap Gibson to me :P

Richard,
The avatar is from a photo I took in Cuba of a poster. Too small to read probably, on the bottom it says: Que Levante la Mano la guitarra. Google says that literally means "raise your hand the guitar".
I donít play lap style.
