Vicky Richardson on All FM

Sunday, May 11th, 2014

Hi everyone,

I’m really looking forward to appearing on Vicky Richardson’s Night Moves show on All FM tonight. I’ll be playing four tracks from my new EP (which will be released soon, I promise! Just being mastered as we speak…). It’s going to be a lot of fun. Tune in on 96.9FM in the Manchester (UK) area — or on the All FM site.

Exeter / Phoenix

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Having a good time down in Exeter. Last night went to the Exeter Phoenix arts centre to check out the originally Totnes-based cabaret phenomenom which is Wondermentalist. It was a great evening, full of a variety of weird and wonderful acts, mostly performance-poetry related. Highly recommended!

I’m playing at the Exeter Phoenix this afternoon from 1.30pm, in the terrace / cafe area, as part of the Exeter Respect festival. It’s also going out on 106.8 FM in the Exeter and www.phonic.fm worldwide… The event is free.

See you later,

Music!

Questionable pop!

Friday, February 9th, 2007

If you see lots of rubbish pop music appearing on my last.fm profile, that’s because I’m showing my parents the last.fm recommended music program. Okay?
