Today is the Day!

The time has come to stop parping and finally let the world see what I’m up to. This website is now live! There’s still a few tweaks to be done here and there but let me know what you think or if you find anything that doesn’t work.

I owe a big thank you to Ed Brookes for supplying most of the images on the site and to Craig Robertson for tweaking them.

I’ll soon be adding tracks from my upcoming EP, which is scheduled for release at the end of July. In the meantime, I hope there’s enough here to keep you occupied (you can also check out the demos I post on this blog). If there’s something you want to see that isn’t here, let me know in the comments.

To celebrate, I’ve uploaded both of the recent Ukulele! radio shows that I did for Chorlton FM to Mixcloud. Mixcloud is a streaming platform for radio shows, podcasts and DJ mixes and is completely legal. This means I can leave them up indefinitely. Yay! You can also embed them in your own websites, should you want to. Enjoy.

Ukulele! Radio Show Part Two (2011)

David Leach playing live in session

Another fun-packed show last night on Chorlton FM 87.7. Thanks to everyone who sent in tunes & to David for playing live in the studio (even if he did sing a rude word!).

If you’re in Manchester, you can catch David along with last week’s guests Pyjama Party playing live at Dulcimer in Chorlton tomorrow night (Wed 25th May).

Big thanks as well to everyone who got involved & generally supported the show. It really wouldn’t have been the same without you all.

Apparently there have been some problems with the listen again feature, so I will be putting the shows up online myself once I’ve got hold of the audio. And I will do it this time, I promise.

So that’s it for another year, for Chorlton FM anyway (though they are still broadcasting until Sunday night). At least you don’t have long to wait for your next fix of ukulele music - Uke Hunt podcast #8 will be up next week on my favourite website featuring Helen Arney live in session!
