I enjoyed recording The Parish News last week - it is now live for you to stream before it gets played on American & British radio. Just head over here for the episode: www.theparishnews.com/113-edition/
I hope my enthusiasm for the show is reflected in my spoken links, between songs - I admit I have a bit of a flat voice and that is accentuated when you bounce the file down. Still, my passion for the show grows with every broadcast - It is something I am very proud about.
Here is the playlist for the One-Hundred and Thirteenth Edition -
Jason Forrest / Biker Movies Attilio Novellino / Conceptual Experience Of The Body Darren Copeland / … while working and walking John Santos Martins Accompanied By Zeal Onyia & His Band / Fancy Baby Síria / Gloria Steve Hauschildt / Alienself Oliver Coates / A Church David Newlyn / Six Phone Calls (1985) Ivor Cutler / Life In a Scotch Sitting Room Wolfgang Mittere / Satz 1 Jonas Kasper Jensen / An Indeterminacy Of Silence Lee “Scratch” Perry / Babylon a Fall experiMENTALien / Telepathically Transformed Tulpa TONUS / IV (Excerpt)
I have changed the look of The Parish News website - there has been a bit of a rebranding. What do you make to it?
If you head over to www.theparishnews.com to see what I have been up to - I admit it is a work in progress, but it is getting there. This weeks show was recorded in Creao Studio - so it sounds better and has a lot less traffic noise interfering with it. You can catch it here: www.theparishnews.com/112-edition/

I have a bit of a confession to make - I was quite tipsy when I recorded this week's One-Hundred and Twelfth Edition of The Parish News. But I don't slur my words ...
Strangely, it is my favourite show that I have done yet - even though it is warts and all. I was in Creao Studio after helping record Sound Of Wonder (www.soundofwonder.co.uk) and was not yet ready to go to bed. This is the result: bit.ly/2Oz1gfQ

Hi, hope you are well? I managed to record this weeks edition of The Parish News late on Friday. I recorded it in my flat, so there is not the same warm sound as when I record it at Creao Studio - but, it is a good enough show - as ever, the music is good but the hosting could be better.
Thank you very much if you managed to listen to last weeks show, Episode #108 - it reached No.8 in the charts.
Here is the playlist for the One-Hundred and Ninth Edition -

Alemayehu Eshete & Hirut Beqere / Temeles Silhouette Sect / Waiting for Eva at the Tannhäuser Gate Chris Parmenidis / 8B5C3b++ (Edit) Oliver Coates / A Church Jonas Kasper Jensen / Silence Within The Sound Yair Etziony / All Levels of Reality Odetta / Another Man Done Gone James Joys / Memorial Blackout Anne-James Chaton + Andy Moor / Le songe de Ludwig Pham Mông Hai / Help Us in This Life – Hát Van Jah Wobble & Zi Lan Liao / Happy Tibetan Girl Le group de recherches musicales de la R.T.F. / Times Five Total ET / A.L.I.E.N.
If you get the chance to tune, that would be great. Thanks for listening x ...
Episode #106 was recorded very late on Friday evening and it is available to listen in Podcast form - it will be broadcast on several stations in the coming weeks.
The show was recorded at Creao Studio, Harrogate. A great facility to have in this town.
Thanks for listening to the show, if you get the chance to tune in. I seem to have a good run in the charts and this is the feedback I love, onwards and upwards - thanks if you have ever tuned in.

I managed to record a new edition of The Gaffa Tapes - You can listen to it here: www.theparishnews.com/the-gaffa-tapes-2/ I am almost getting to the point where I am happy with them - I almost have 'The Wall Of Sound' effect that I am aiming for. Just a bit more practice and I could be there. As I promised in the Newsletter, I will keep on making The Gaffa Tapes available as a freebie - I was thinking of putting them behind a paywall but that was not the most inclusive option. So, they will remain as freebies ... ...

I now realise I was being damn cheeky. I was so wrapped up in my own little bubble that I neglected to see that everybody has the same economic trials. I regret setting up the Patreon Page. It tied the person who would sponsor me into a Banking deal and that is not what I wanted.
I have gone back to basics and set up a system where people can tip me the cost of a coffee. If you like any of the episodes of The Parish News then feel free to send over the cost of a coffee. The address for that is www.buymeacoffee.com/2IJbvYayB
The Gaffa Tapes will recommence in the middle of the week, at Creao Studio. I will be giving away The Gaffa Tapes as a free stream. You never know, Knaresborough may need an Experimental Cassette DJ? ...
I made it up to Creao Studio on Friday - I was a bit flustered after a week of deadlines, but studio time was enjoyable all the same. I kind of rushed the show again - sorry about that. My mind was elsewhere (England were playing India in the Cricket) and there was no milk in the studio for cups of tea.
Kind of my own fault for the milk situation.
If you are interested, I have a good friend who also has a radio show on some of the same Networks; I produce it for him. Sound Of Wonder is a World Music show and it is a bit different from The Parish News, but I hope you dig it - you will dig it if Turkish Psychedelia and Ghanian Hip-Hop is your bag ... you can check it out at www.soundofwonder.co.uk
The playlist for the One-Hundred and Fifth Edition of The Parish News is available on the show's page (link included).
I will book time at the studio again this week. I hope to make another of The Gaffa Tapes. Thanks for listening x ...
