My time as holder of the Personality category in the European Podcast Awards has gracefully now come to an end. The 2011 award winners were announced this morning and the awards for the categories go to…
with tracks by…. House Of Badger, Smash Grab, Reverend and The Makers,Tracy Thornton, Shenandoah and the Night, m3t4, 111, Dogboy, Mo Kolours, Dubmatix, Easy Star All Stars, Viva L’American Death Ray Music, Francesco Burchini.
This year the Great Escape folks seem to be investing in some rather nifty technology, which makes the whole business of working out who to see and what they sound like much easier. Many the time Grumbler and I have poured over the program to find that “Band X comes from wales” or sound like “the bastard love child of Lady Gaga and Kurt Cobain” or other such nonsense.
I’m raising money for a Children’s Cancer Charity.
Between Friday 27th and 29th September a bunch of us will be Swooving for 40 hours for 40 different charities.
I shall be Swooving for 10 hours and my chosen charity is Chestnut Tree House, which provides care for children and young people with life-shortening conditions, and their families.
To Swoove means to Sing, Whoop and Move. It’s a great physical and mental excercise and keeps me sane in an otherwise insane world.
If you have heard my podcasts, and have a couple of pounds, dollars, euros, or any other currency spare then please consider donating HERE to the cause. The last time I asked for sponorship was back in 2013, so I don’t ask everyday.
