Keep the resolutions & new year flowing - 30th January 2011

It's almost the end of January & already I'm struggling to keep on top of my resolutions. I was hoping by now to have developed a bit more of a relaxed routine of getting more rest & looking after myself a bit better. I have been having mixed success & was able to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend at home for a change. A friend was visiting & we were able to just relax, watch films & listen to music, some of which I had the pleasure of including in tonights show.

Also, it was great to pop into the Brentwood Theatre on the way into the studio this evening to catch a bit of the Phoenix FM fundraiser. Highlights for me were Edd Coates, Roz Ure & a beautiful song from Michelle Ward & Ed Wellman.

In the second hour tonight, I found myself getting a bit carried away with Mark Everett & the gang in their band Eels. I played Susan's House then got inspired to have a bit of a chat about them then play a couple of songs from their recent album of last year 'End Times'.
