As I’ve mentioned before, I recently produced and presented a series of Local Music Shows on Carnival FM in Hastings.
Well, the first two of those shows are now available to listen to again, or for the first time, on Mixcloud.
The first show, which went out on Friday 2nd August featured a pre-recorded interview and live session with Claire Hamill, as mentioned in another recent post on the Pierless Music site.
The second show was originally broadcast on Monday 5th August and featured interviews and live sessions with both Blair and Poppy Prescott.
Links to both shows are below. The remaining Local Music Shows are planned to be uploaded in due course.
Don’t forget to check out the Carnival FM YouTube channel for videos of the interviews and live sessions that I did during the programmes. Once again, these are being uploaded gradually: http://www.youtube.com/user/CarnivalFM/videos
Here’s my latest column for the Hastings Observer, which was printed in their June 7th edition.
“This months column is going to have a distinct radio theme I’m afraid as that’s what I’ve been doing with myself for much of the month of May. Hastings Rock radio may now be gone from your radio dials once again, but if original local music is your thing you can still hear the four dedicated Local Music Shows that I presented for the station. You can find them all at: http://www.mixcloud.com/HastingsRock/
I had some great feedback about these shows, so I hope that you’ll enjoy them too. You’ll find a great variety of local musical talent within the shows & much that you may not have heard before & hopefully something to make you want to search out any local gigs by the acts. Enjoy.
In other local radio news, Carnival FM will be back on the air for Hastings Old Town Carnival Week (1st to 11th August) and I will presenting a Local Music Show for the station on weekdays between 6 & 8pm. These shows will be featuring live studio sessions from original local acts, as they proved very popular last year. Find out more at: http://www.carnivalfm.co.uk/
One other piece of good news is that the annual RNLI Beach Concerts will thankfully be taking place this year, after some financial concerns. They will be on Saturday & Sunday, 3rd & 4th August.Let’s hope that summer has finally arrived by then.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts here on the Pierless Music website I am currently involved with Hastings Rock radio station and every Sunday during May I am presenting a show dedicated to original local music.
I’m pleased to say that I’ve now started podcasting these shows and the first two are now uploaded to the Hastings Rock Mixcloud site for your listening pleasure.
Yesterday, i recorded the first in what i hope will be a long series of interviews with local bands and musicians.
The guinea pigs were Adonis Fuzz and you can listen to that interview below, via the Pierless Music Mixcloud page.
The interview does contain some swearing and adult content, but this is rock n roll after all. I apologise for the slight lack of volume on the band, but that’s what happens when you try to record three band members in a small room.
Pierless Music now has a Mixcloud account and we’ve started to post some ‘Cloudcasts’.
You can access our Mixcloud site either by clicking on the Mixcloud link in the Menu bar above, where there are more details about how we intend to use it, or by going here: http://www.mixcloud.com/PierlessMusic/
Mixcloud is a service that allows people to upload radio shows and podcasts for free. It also pays royalties, where appropriate and includes links to buy individual tracks that can be purchased via iTunes etc.

As a taster, we thought we’d share one of the Local Music Shows that Andy Gunton did for Hastings Rock in May 2012.
