Hello you. It’s been several weeks since I last updated these pages, but certainly not because of any lack of activity around these parts. I’ve been off producing podcasts in Croatia, Normandy, Sweden, Brompton Cemetery (slightly closer to home, that one), a Book of the Week for Radio 4, an animation soundtrack in which I desperately attempted to make a spider’s snoring sound convincing and I even headed down to Brighton to perform a live DJ score to the classic Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated. Phew. All tremendously stimulating, but leaving precious little time to write any of it down. But I did want to bring your attention to this coming Saturday on Resonance FM, in which myself and Strictly Kev, better known as DJ Food will be presenting The OST Show in regular host Jonny Trunk’s absence. It’s going to be a Sesame Street Special, to mark almost exactly a decade since my first OST Muppet odyssey and 14 years since Kev’s first appearance on the show – when he was promoting his now cult-classic lost mixtape D is for Dig. The above image is the original mock-up of the cover that he’s dug out for the occasion and it makes me smile every single time I look at it!
There are killer jams aplenty from Roosevelt Franklin, The Pointer Sisters, Oscar, Bert and even some way out sounds from Little Chrissy and The Alphabeats. Plus listen out for guest appearances by Ray Charles, Max Roach, Grace Slick, Pete Seeger, Morgan Freeman and the great Jim Henson himself. Come and play, won’t you?
Saturday 28th July, 16.30-18.30, Resonance 104.4FM in London or worldwide via ResonanceFM.com. See you there!
