URN Playlist – 27th October 2008 – My Final Transmission!

Last night was my last radio show on URN before I leave Nottingham and move south this weekend. Having been doing the show in one form or another for 4 years or so now, I have to say it was really rather sad leaving the studio for the final time knowing I’ll never be back. The show itself was really good fun, Alex (bless him) sacrificed his Jazz Corner to allow me 15 minutes at the end of the show to play a few songs back to back. My quickly compiled mix probably reflects fairly well what I’ve played on the show over the years – a bit of country here, a bit of gabba there, some noisy indiepop, a bit of J-pop and the utterly beautiful track by Azure Ray I closed the show with. It was really lovely to get texts in from people listening at home too, thank you all!

Keep listening to the show every Monday, Alex and Toby will continue to do a fantastic job, and they may well be joined by various Nottingham based guests as the weeks go by. In the meantime, I need to find myself a community based radio station somewhere round Oxford/Wiltshire to fulfil my radio desires… I could be tempted to do an entirely country based show, though no doubt there’d be bits of P!OP! and noise in there somewhere too…
