Local Music Show – Podcasts

As mentioned in previous posts, I am once again presenting some Local Music Shows on this years Hastings Rock broadcast.

The first two, of four, have already gone out and I have now edited the Podcasts of those shows.

For future reference you can find them on the Hastings Rock Mixcloud page. I shall be posting future shows there as well: http://www.mixcloud.com/HastingsRock/

Here are the first two Local Music Shows.

Local Music Show Podcasts

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.

You can find them here:

The remaining two Local Music Shows will also be uploaded over the coming couple of weeks.

Hastings Rock radio (Again)

A while ago I posted about the return of Hastings Rock radio for its 20th anniversary broadcast. Well, the start of transmission is nigh and the radio station begins broadcasting on Saturday 4th May on 87.7FM locally and across the world via an Internet stream.

You may well have read a bit more about Hastings Rock via a recent article in the Hastings Observer: http://www.hastingsobserver.co.uk/news/local-news/radio-station-is-still-rocking-after-20-years-1-5016640

Hastings Rock prides itself on playing original local music during its 28 day broadcasts and this has been happening for most, if not all, of the 15 separate broadcasts that have taken place during those 20 years. 2013 will mark the 16th actual broadcast.

As mentioned in my previous post, I will be presenting a dedicated Local Music Show on Sunday evenings, in May, between 8 & 10pm. During those shows I shall try and fit in as much local music as I can and I already have more than enough to play, but I’m always open to hearing more.

Just because Hastings Rock is a rock station doesn’t mean that I’ll only be playing classic rock music though. I tend to try and stretch the musical boundaries of the station as much as I can during my Local Music Shows. Therefore, expect to hear Blues, Folk, World and much more besides. I do have to draw the line sometimes, but I have always tried to have what I call an ‘open ear policy’ when it comes to music.

Local music is also played as a part of Hastings Rocks ‘A List’. The best tracks that have been sent in will get regular airplay during normal scheduled shows throughout the 28 days. There aren’t many, if any, other radio stations that can claim to do that.

If you miss the Local Music Shows I do intend to post them as ‘Podcasts’ here on the Pierless Music site at some time. So, keep your eyes and ears peeled for that.

The Pierless Music Interviews – Alba

Here is the second in our series of interviews with local musicians.

Alba is a young female singer/songwriter from St Leonards who came to Andy’s attention around a year ago.

The Pierless Music Interviews

We are planning on doing a series of interviews with local musicians in the very near future.

The idea is to record the interviews as a podcast and to then post them onto this site and also onto the Pierless Music Mixcloud page as well. Bands and musicians will then be able to share them, or use them for their own publicity purposes. For example, within an Electronic Press Kit (EPK).

Initially, we will try to concentrate on bands/musicians that have new material being released, or who have recently released an album, or EP.

The ‘plan’ is to end each Pierless Music Interview with a track from that release. So, we will need to have a copy of the album, or EP beforehand.

I’m hoping to record the first of these interviews tomorrow and already have another lined up for next week. If you’d like to be included on one of these upcoming podcasts and you fit the criteria above, please get in touch with us here at Pierless Music.

Btw, we are still in the process of trying to arrange a weekly local music show on BURST radio, as previously mentioned.

Pierless Music on Mixcloud

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.
