Seeing as I have now already started on the recording of series 3 of the podcast it is high time I got my ass into gear and published the rest of series 2 here on the blog. I’m going for the same approach I took when sharing podcast #34 just before Christmas so this will be a short, sweet sharing of just the mixcloud show. No frills but frills aplenty from the glorious playlists.
Podcast #23 was a bit of a cheat by which I split a previously recorded bumper show featuring some delicious songs from mostly alternative rock bands who had their music featured in episodes of hit US genre-TV shows of the late 90s and early 00s, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Charmed. There really are some gems here from the likes of Four Star Mary, Bif Naked, Angie Hart, The Cranberries, the Goo Goo Dolls and not forgetting the incredible Until I Wake Up by the then JR Richards-fronted Dishwalla who appeared in the episode as themselves complete within the plot to boot. Great stuff! Also included are 2 short pieces from Buffy’s season 6 musical episode ‘Once More With Feeling‘.
To end the show my 10 from Tom feature returns and song 6 of 10 aptly featured in a season 6 episode of Buffy. Finally, playing out is song 2 of 2 from David Bronson.
Podcast #35 is due online early next week. Thank you for listening.
