I’ve just started up Themesongs, a radio show/playlist with me doing some inter-song mumbling. It’ll be ten delicious tracks on a certain theme each week, with varying amounts of me waffling on. Hopefully will flow and be a good playlist as well, rather than just a grab-bag. This first one doesn’t have much chat as the topic ‘Beginnings’ is a bit vague and I’m still finding my presenter voice, but as I go on it should get a bit more involved. And yes, I sort of stole the idea from Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour, but he’s the master music thief so I’m at peace with it. All candy-coated criticism welcome!
Second attempt - tried to be a bit more talky in this one
Channelling Jarvis’ Wireless Nights on this one, trying for more of a guided meditation through the playlist
Think this is the best one so far, also much shorter than the others for some reason. A journey through diagnosis, treatment and convalescence with some ASMR style whispering and me awkwardly trying to integrate the featured musicians into the hospital setting.
Time for the beach! Made this one in a bit of a hurry as I was moving house but think it turned out decent
Rootin tootin gluten. Enjoyed mixing in some silly chef clips to this one.
Songs about them popular instruments. Quite a folky country bent to this one

Somehow just come across this. Cool idea - we did something similar with playlists for a drive across Australia once. Will check them out.
