There’s a chance to win a load of shiny new Shifty Disco releases and celebrations are rounded off with live sets from Shifty bands, The Race, Seagull Strange, My Device and Paperlung. The show starts on Jan 27th & repeats through February. We also have an exclusive four track session from Autons.

Pimpernel Jones:
Pompey DJ and rising star Pimpernel Jones plays the Wedgewood Rooms on Saturday 10th February with Radio One/Talkin’ Loud’s Gilles Peterson. So far I’ve only heard the chilled out mixes that Chris has been kind enough to point me to but judging from that and the favourable comments he’s been receiving lately, it should be a good night. Definately a name to watch!

| Taster Two compilation on the Cookshop Label.

There are bound to be things I’ve forgotten or simply missed so contact me if you want a mention.

Get Into Radio With John Peel [CDRiP]

Getting Into Radio Introduced by John Peel (1999)

Now then, here’s a cute little curio featuring our John. It’s a rip from a promotional CD that was produced for people interested in a career in radio. I know!

Don’t be put-off though because it is in fact a well produced affair. Peelie hosts the one hour documentary featuring numerous industry professionals and it is interesting enough in itself even if you have no plans for a life on the waves. Now there’s a pun worthy of local radio. You can have that one on me!

From the Sleeve Notes:
“Getting Into Radio is a unique collection of advice, suggestions, hints and tips from our collegues throughout the radio industry. We know that you’ll find it useful and hope that you enjoy it.”

Track Listing:
01. Getting Into Radio – Introduction by John Peel
02. Engineering – From studio sessions to digits: An essential guide.
03. Production – The skills and interests you need to make it.
04. Sales and Marketing – How to sell yourself into a selling role.
05. Journalism – Editors and journalists with the inside story.
06. Commercial Production – An insider’s guide to 30 second heaven.
07. Presentation – Presenters on how to get in and get on the air.
08. Getting Into Radio – A final thought, “Never give up!”

Running time: 1hr 31sec

It’s a rapidshare link for now – you don’t mind too much do you? The comments are there if you do!

Tribute To John Peel – Turn That Racket Down

BBCtv Documentary

With contributions from John Walters, Billy Bragg, Jarvis Cocker and others, this documentary was originally screened during the August Bank Holiday back in 1999. Broadcast as part of John’s 60th Birthday celebrations – even getting on the cover of the Radio Times no-less, this revised version was shown in tribute following his death in 2004.
