It’s the summer holidays – I hope you’re enjoying your break. The podcast will continue weekly but for this episode it’s a dip into the archives, in a way. This is a conversation where I was interviewed- a couple of years ago – for a series of podcasts for the now defunct Rip It Up Radio. Andrew Johnstone, the then-editor and the interviewer contacted me recently and offered this up from the archives, he thought it might be of interest as part of my podcast.
So be warned – this is not a guest as such. It’s me. Me talking about some favourite songs – and then around that I’m discussing my approach to music and writing and listening and reviewing.
I enjoyed this conversation – it’s me on a phone call, from memory I was in my car, pulled over on the side of the road somewhere down Aro Valley because the cell phone coverage in our house is unreliable.
I’ve edited one or two very dated references out of this conversation but it’s largely untouched. I’ve also shortened the length of the songs – so you just get snippets of the music rather than whole songs.
It seemed like a good time to run this – consider it bonus content, inessential listening perhaps. But still another episode in the life of the podcast. Apologies for the indulgence, a real episode will return next week…
My thanks to Andrew Johnstone on behalf of Rip It Up Radio for the audio.
