Guilty as charged. Yes, it’s taken me, ahem, a while longer than I expected to come up with a new playlist. It isn’t actually that bit which is the problem; finding spare time during the initial group matches of Euro 2016 has been the issue.
But with a more congenial fixture list, it’s back to finding a regular routine for the site. The aim, laudable as ever, is for two posts a week; one at the weekend, one Tuesday or Wednesday which will invariably be a review of a favourite album or something about a band or other, but as those of you familiar with A Cultured Left Foot will attest, the fine ideas are often overtaken by work.
Yeah, and I’m aware it isn’t the weekend…
One of the joys of working from home is being able listen to the radio constantly. Aside from when the football’s on and then frankly, not a lot of work is getting done. Several stations, previously listened to sporadically, are regularly tuned into.
BBC Radio 6, with its eclectic musical tastes, has been the favourite with Lauren Laverne and the Radcliffe & Maconie show, particularly enjoyable. Ronnie Spector, featured on this week’s playlist with Tell Her No from her new album, English Heart, was interviewed by Laverne and was wonderfully batty.
A blogroll will eventually go up with these and more on.
Anyway today’s brief post is over and the playlist is below or here in your browser.
