Aural Delights Podcast 50

So a bit of a milestone with 49 editions now upped and still available to listen to via Mixcloud.

I wasn’t sure when I left the radio station how long this would last, and never one to stay on one thing for too long it may be that there will be shift in direction soon.

All that being said it’s been good to share this music with the world…..there does not seem to be a plethora of outlets for good quality independant music so i’ll be ploughing that particular furrow for a little longer.

But how to celebrate this achievement?

Well what I did was to invite a selected group of musicians and DJs to select a track which had influenced them over the years – and together with that selection I am picking one the musicians/groups tracks and one for the DJ I think they will like.

In some instances the variations and choices get a bit out of sync with that general rule but mostly one band gets a pair of tracks each – I do explain the variations during the show.

Bit of an epic this one lasting well over four hours…..but I think you will find the variety of choices entertaining and in some instances surprising. There are 59 tracks which seemed liked a nice round number at this point in my life…….
