To celebrate International Women’s Day, I put together an all female edition of the podcast. And it’s a MOTHER of a podcast! Featuring an interview with one my favourite ukulele players, Rose Turtle Ertler from Australia.
Whilst I’m getting up to date with the podcast, I almost forgot that viddyviddy did a review of it. She said some nice things and even managed to get my strange northern accent to form part of a drinking game. Click through for the full write-up but here’s a quote:
The Ukulele Hunt podcast’s main feature is a veritable buffet of ukulele-utilizing performers.Â Classical, silly, pop, sad, saucy, there’s a tune for every genre and a few minutes to spare on this podcast for all of themÂ Host Bossarocker (ain’t lyin’) leads her listeners through a guided tour of ukulele-related music, pausing along the way to let people stretch their legs and take pictures at scenic parks.Â And by “scenic parks” I mean “interviews with people who play the ukulele.”
Bossarocker Ain’t Lyin’ needs to be an album title.

I thought it was about time I did a podcast update. I’m sure most of you follow the podcast via Ukulele Hunt or subscribe via iTunes. But just in case you don’t, you may believe that the last podcast was Uke Hunt Podcast #9 due to my blogging lapse which is simplyÂ not true! We’re up to #12 now, with #13 about to hit the interwebs very soon!
I’m not going to list all the artists like I normally do for individual podcast posts, but I will start doing that again from now on. Instead, I’ll run through some edited highlights.
If, like me, you have some catching up to do but only have time to listen toÂ one podcast, then this should definitely be it. Featuring a sublime live session from Edinburgh based Emily Scott, complete with string section, this is our best live session to date. You can also pick up a copy of Emily’s latest album, I Write Letters I Never Send.
Keep sending us your tunes to play! You can email mp3s or share with us via Soundcloud. Please make sure your track has a sample rate of 44.1kHz otherwise we can’t play it. And do get in touch, let us know what you’re thinking and what you’d like to hear.
Jam packed with sexy ukulele music, including an exclusive from Helen Arney, tunes from Craig Robertson, Spring Breakup & Tricity Vogue, who all have new albums out, a new track from our favourite newcomer Ukeâ€™s Not Dead plus plenty more besides.
