Podcast Episode 3 – Laid Back Edition

Podcast Episode 3 finds me just returned from a relaxing break down in Cornwall, and still feeling pretty mellow, so the atmosphere this week is more laid back than usual. There are two unfinished new songs which found their way into the podcast, and I’ve always described the live show as having “half finished songs, improvisations etc” which is something I’d like to be able to do more of as the podcast progesses. I feel that some of my most satisfying compositions have been created in the moment and then never repeated, but then again you;d have to wade through a fair amount of inferior material to get to the nuggets so it’s a difficult one to pull off on a recorded session.

Here’s the online podcast player for listening to Episode 3:

Official Podcast Opening Night – Tuesday July 6th 7.00pm

After 4 weeks of prototyping, the music podcast goes LIVE in July and we’re celebrating with an official opening night on Tuesday July 6th. So come along to the ustream page promptly for 7.00pm UK time to get your requests in, hang out with other podcast listeners and be part of my opening night recorded for posterity here at http://andyroberts.me/

Building the Opening Night

It would be nice to have a bit of a crowd along for the opening night just to get the regular weekly podcasting off to a good start so I’ve created a facebook Event for this particular show which you can invite people to. I’ll also be making a post over on my long established blog site at DARnet Andy Roberts and one or two other places if I can think of them.

The podcast opening night will also be part of the Cafe Noodle July Ustream Festival, a great music community organised by Matt Stevens Loop.

I think it should be possible to embed the ustream show here on this site – so that’s something I’ll be having a go at too.

Podcast 4th and Final Prototype

Well I’m surprised how quickly 4 weeks have passed, I even made a mistake during the recording and referred to it as prototype 3 but this is in fact the 4th and final podcast prototype in the series. Next week’s edition will be the official opening night of the Andy Roberts Podcast – episode 1. I ought to make an event out of that on the facebook page really, and invite people.

Anyway, here’s the podcast player for listening online to my Andy Roberts podcast prototype number 4:
