Mr Jason
MERRY DECEMBERWEEN!! - IT'S OUR 200TH SHOW!!! (Part 2) - And we celebrated by having a fantastic party at the studio. We invited all our lovely friends, and had 2 bands playing, and DJs DJing, and the Allstar Jam, and people danced their socks off til 4 in the morning. It was brilliant. Listen now, and find out just how fun it was. Forgive us for being very, very, very drunk. Last week we had La Roq Sportif, and this week we have Part 2 of the party, with Hello Bear playing a storming live set. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, is pretty much like last week, only a bit better, in our humble opinion. Let us know if you agree, by waving out of the nearest window. One for yes, two for no.
Happy Decemberween Everybody!! It's the end of the year, so we're having a round up of some of the songs we liked this past year, along with info on which bands split up, which new ones sprouted up, etc.. Let's Radio!
Right! So Mr Jason is visiting the lovely peoples of NYC and left me Dr Patel in charge. I dragged the nearest hobo off the street to help me record and his name is Owen. Can he radio? Let us find out!
ICHICUTS - This session was a lot of fun. Ichicuts are one of the most hands-on and creative duos I've ever met. They built their own studio, and they make equipment, and they make flightcases for their equipment stations, and they drive around in an Ambulance of all things. I've had a great time hanging out with Gordon and Erik, and hopefully you will too for the next 30 minutes. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, Jason flies solo again, without a license; but with a great sense of rhythm, and a plethora (yep, I said it!) of magical tunes for your delectation and amusement. We also feature the 2nd of a 3 part live gig recording, by JT Nero & Allison Russell. What more could you want? (that's rhetorical) Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
Oh! It's getting close to Christmas!! Are you excited or sick of it already? Our host falls in to the latter of categories and fills the show with some very un-Christmassy UK College Music...Just to balance it out a bit. Come on, whatd'ya say?... Let's radio!
AGENT RIBBONS - About bloody time! I've been waiting to record Agent Ribbons for over 3 long years now. I first had them booked for an OSS session when the studio was based in Great Witchingham, in the beautiful English countryside. They got deported a few days beforehand though, so I didn't get to record them.. I've since been following the career of these criminals, and both of their LPs have been featured as "Album Of The Month" on the Planet Beet show, which I do with Iain. Anyway, you can imagine my relief at finally having my dreams come true. At last, here we are, live in the studio with Agent Ribbons! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, Jason flies solo, and also does the show by himself. But, don't worry, because regardless of the lack of humour or charisma, there'll still be chocks full of excellent music, including a new Album Of The Month, and Part 1 of an exclusive Live Gig Recording of JT & Allison Russell. Now that's not to be sneezed on! Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This weeks show is presented by Iain on his own as Jason is away making holiday fun in New York! Never fear as there is still a whole pant load of great college related music to be heard with favourites old and new! Come on... Let's radio!
This week, the Jason they call "Mr" is joined by his zany sidekick "Lefty Lucy", in what turns out to be a great show. Yeah, right? It was as much of a suprise to us as I'm sure it is to you! Can we kick it? Let us radio and see!
KING LACONIC - After having to cancel twice at the last minute, Brendan finally made it, braving the snow. And we're very glad he did. Beautiful voice, excellent guitar playing, good dynamics. What more could you ask for? (don't answer that please..). Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we have the last instalment of our current "Album Of The Month", the continuing story of "The Special Goodness", and some rude songs by The Hoops, plus many more quality items for your delectation. All in the name of love. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, it's back to life, back to realty, with our powerhouse hosts, The Jason and That Iain. And also, as if that wasn't good enough (and to be brutally frank, it REALLY isn't enough), we also have a live gig recording for you, from The Woodland Creatures!! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
UMBRELLA ASSASSINS - Well, today's a special day for The Jayman (that's me, Jason!), cos it's been a long time since I've had the chance to hang out with my Umbrella buddies from Haverhill, Suffolk, in the UK. The band first did an OSS session about 4 years ago, back at OSS v2, in sunny Bury St Edmunds. They then went on to record records with me in that studio, the next one, in Great Witchingham's beautiful countryside, AND in this one, OSS v4, in rainy Norwich. You couldn't meet a nicer bunch of boys. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Bizarrely, I can't remember anything about this week's show. Seriously, not a single thing! Weird huh? Well, I can only presume that it's effin' amazing, judging by our recent form. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, we're more than a little surprised to find that the show is being hosted by Jason & Iain's little sisters, Tash and Kathryn. How they got into the studio, we don't know, but here they definitely are, so... Can they kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Well, after last fortnight's storming "Foreigners Special", it remains to be seen whether or not we can keep up that kind of pace with today's show.. Am I worried? No freakin way Hose B! Cos we've got an absolutely packed full of jam show, and some stupid banter to back it up. Can We Radio It? Let Us Kick It & See!
INVISIBLE CITIES - Today's session put me in a really good mood. Lovely chaps (and not just the ones that I'm wearing!) and lovely music. The only downside of the session is that there WAS an extra song, but the digital gremlins sabotaged it, and we didn't find out until it was too late. So, you'll just have to imagine what the song was like.. I can tell you that it was their eponymous song, Invisible Cities. But that's enough miserable talk! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we continue with our current Classic Album "The Special Goodness' "Bunny Album"), our Album Of The Month" ("Ike", "Ike"), and we have all the usual idiots, and erm, that's about it.. So, give us a chance..? :o) Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, will Iain get any surprise phone calls? I would tell you, but I genuinely can't remember. It all goes in two ears, and out the other, so I'm probably the wrong person to ask.. Anyway, one thing you CAN be sure of, is that's gonna be another class packed full of jam show! Seriously! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
KHAN - Time to put in your earplugs, and wrap your head in thick duct tape, as the Khan boys are about to give you an aural battering of the highest order. And that can ONLY be a good thing. Trust me! Crunchy drums, crunchy bass, crunchy guitar, and dual crunchy vocals, recorded by crunchy ol' Mr Jason, just like the doctor ordered. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we bring you a new Classic Album in the shape of The Special Goodness' "Bunny Album", and a new Album Of The Month" that looks suspiciously like "Ike", by, erm, "Ike", from Pittsburgh. So, it's not ALL bad then.. :o) Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Iain gets a surprise phonecall from his Yoga instructor, and to be honest, that's about the most exciting part of the whole show.. Also, we play "Guess The Theme Of Today's Show". Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
This week, it's the "Foreigners Special". Everyone's a "foreigner" to someone, and we have lots of fantastic music from loads of different countries, including some "pre-revolutionary Iranian Pop", which I doubt many of our competitors/enemies can boast. The show is (self) sponsored again by 'Kershaws Quality Foods'... We can't get enough of their stuff, and that's the truth! Can We Radio It? Let Us Kick It & See!
THE THINKING MEN - Today we go On Location to Norwich's "The Bicycle Shop", to present to you the headlining set from "The Thinking Men" at their EP Launch gig. A great night was had by all, and in future weeks we will be bringing you a few of the sets by the support acts from that evening. I'm gonna try to get The Thinking Men into Old School Studios for a "Not On Location" session at their earliest convenience, so look out for that! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we continue with our Classic Album (The Vaselines), and our Album Of The Month is still Doog's "Thoughts From A Bloated Boy". Get ready for an astoundingly hilarious show, just incase that should happen in the near future.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, we herald the return of "Guess The Crisp", which I guess we'll have to change to "Guess The Chip" for our American cousins.. "But surely you'll also be playing some great College-based music?". Yes young sir/madame, your instincts are correct. I love you all so much that it's time for you to go to sleep now. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
JESSICA ALICE - Well, Jessica's session was fun for me for a few reasons. The first is that she's a great singer/songwriter. The second is that after the recording session we went out drinking, and a good time was had by all. So, all in all, it's been a great day for me, the Jayman. Listen, enjoy, and send us your money. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week heralds the return of Lorway, from Norway, where he's been recording a record with his band, The Level 42s. With the old team back together again, this week's show promises to be a real rip roarer. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Lorway's back from Norway, so you can expect an exciting, magical show, full of hilarious quips, and gentle ribbing, for her pleasure. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Another Funk-A-Licious show for you boys & girls from the one, the only Mr Jason & his dashingly handsome sidekick, Dr Patel. This week the show is self sponsored by 'Kershaws Quality Foods'... Can They Radio It? Let Us Kick It & See!
SHANE OLINSKI - You'll have heard Shane on this show once before, with a band, but this times it's a completely different set of songs, and just Shane on his lonesome. Over the years, Shane has recorded hundreds and hundreds of songs, in various recording studios, and at home onto 4 track, but he's only released one LP. Over the coming months, friends of his are going to begin going through his vast backlogue of recordings, and putting them online. I, for one, can't wait. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, my best friend, Lucy The Hippy, is filling the shoes of Lorway, cos he's in Norway. True story! OK, I know that she's annoying, and not as funny as Iain, but she is better looking, so all's well in Elmswell. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Jayman's more-glamorous-than-Iain assistant is Malice. They're a well known DJing team, and you should give them the respect they deserve. Oi! Stop laughing! Oh, OK, fair enough.. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
WHITE COLLAR CRIMES - There was a leak in the roof of the studio this week, so the band had to put up with the smell of damp. But did they let it stop them from rocking? Well, you'll just have to listen in and find out! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, and for the 2nd time in PB history, Jason and Iain manage to go the entire show without using any vowels!! How do they do it? Well, you'll just have to listen and see! Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Iain and Jayman fight through Jason's illness, and against all odds, build a mountain of a show for y'everybody's enjoyment, and bemusement. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
LATIN SPECIAL 3 - Well, not only is the lovely doctor away on his holiday's, but Jayman is ill.. Will this stop them from bringing you a fantastic Latin Special? No! Of course not! I can't believe you had the nerve to THINK that, letalone SAY it! Bad boy! Dirty boy! In you bed!! Let us radio and see..
DEAD ENDS - I recently booked this band to play a Planet Beet gig, at B2 in Norwich. Their drummer let them down, and didn't turn up to the gig, so the band played as a 3 piece. They impressed me, regardless of the missing drummer. They've since got an excellent new drummer, and I immediately booked them for a session. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we'll be speaking only in song titles, and quotes from famous, and not-so-famous Movies and TV Shows from the 70s. Will we manage to complete the whole hour, or will we cave? Only YOU can be the judge.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Iain and Jayman continue to offend all and sundry, and a few others as well. There'a a possibility that they both might be slightly hungover, so don't take them too seriously, K? Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
CAMARILLA (from the vaults) - Well, I was rustling and rummaging around in the Old School Studios vaults the other day, and found this recording. I'd completely forgotten having recorded this session, and the band had forgotten too. It wasn't broadcast at the time, as it was only a matter of months after Camarilla recorded a "Live @ Old School Studios" session, and so it languished in the vaults for two years. This will be the first time that anyone has heard it. It sounds powerful as hell, and I hope you enjoy discovering it as much as me and the girls have! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we bring you the crazy comedy (really?) stylings of Jayman and The Lorway. What scrapes will the chaps get themselves into this week? Only time, will tell.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week, Iain and Jayman bring you music from across the British Isles, but mainly from Norwich's "Access To Music", "City College" & "University Of East Anglia". We're also reaching as far affield as Lowestoft, so you KNOW it's gonna be a rockin' show! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Well Mr Jason & Dr Patel are still attempting to put the fun into the funk, but possibly not managing.. Have they Still Got What It Takes To Funk Your Faces Off? Let us radio and see..
GIRL IN A THUNDERBOLT - You may remember GIATB before, cos Maria did a solo set back when Old School Studios was out in the countryside. Well, Maria now has a 3 piece band, and so I was eager to get them into the studio for some live rock action. Here's the pudding. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, our dynamic duo (Jason & Iain) are in the comforts of the studio, rather than a shopping centre, or in space, or whatever. They bring you something old (a classic PB gig), something new (The Deers), something borrowed (they re-interpret the Classic Album jingle), and something blue (Jason does a swear..). Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
It's been another week, and this is another weak show for your delectation. We honestly do try our best though, and on behalf of the whole team, we'd like to apologize. We hope that this is some consolation, and we promise to try even harder next time. If just one of you laughs even once, then it'll all have been worthwhile. :o) Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
DREW MCDONNELL - Iain and I have been playing Drew's stuff recently on those radio shows what we do, so I thought it was about time I got Drew into the studio, to play them for me in real time, and in a real place. And that's exactly what happened. How did it sound? Well, you're listening to it right now. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we find Jason moonlighting at his other job, selling fruit in the Liza Minellium Dome in Swaffham. Can Happley's Shopping Centre cope with all the excitement? Will Iain keep his cool under high pressure situations? Let us find out. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
Well, I told you it wouldn't be easy, but you didn't listen. I warned you that living with me and Iain would lead to heartbreak, but you insisted that we'd be one big happy family. Well, the fan has hit the wall, and you've hit the road, and Iain and I are left here picking up the pieces. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Well Mr Jason & Dr Patel are still attempting to put the fun into the funk, but possibly not managing.. Have they Still Got What It Takes To Funk Your Faces Off? Let us radio and see..
MADAMES ET MONSIEUR - Well, erm, this is a bit awkward. I'm a huge fan of this week's OSS victims. Maybe that's partly cos I'm IN the band? I dunno, I was a huge fan of Mary and Tory when they were called "The Indie Girls", and so me and my friend Mark asked if they wanted to form a band; which they did, and which we did. Lotty is now playing bass instead of Mark, and the band has developed a definite sound over the last 6 months. And this is it! Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, we take a walk on the wilde side, as our camp heroes battle boredom, the bottle, several evil magicians, and your hearts. Will it end up shaping up, and getting fit, in time to reach a dynamic apex, before you, the audience, get bored and run away from your radios (computers) and leap out of the window screaming? Let us find out. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
All I'm saying is, I LOVE you! I don't think there's any point me hiding it any longer, as I can tell that you already know. And I think you feel the same. One bark for "yes", and two for "no". Good doggy! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Jonas Reinhardt - Recorded on location at Cakeshop in New York, I was hanging out there with my friend Jason (a different Jason, although I was there too..), and Jason (the one who I just mentioned) was doing the live sound at the venue, so I setup my 8 track reel to reel tape machine in the sound booth, and let the good times roll, for your delight. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, our heros keep on the right side of the law, and your hearts, by avoiding any chance of an adventure. Will this make for a better or worse show, your you, the viewer? Well, to be brutally frank, it's a bit disapointing.. But, they can't ALL be amazing shows, can they? Hah! I fooled you, cos it IS another classic! Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
We've decided. We're gonna get a really good scientist on the payroll, so he/she can invent cool stuff for us, on a regular basis, and we can rake in the dough. Do you think that's a good idea? One beep for yes, two beeps for double yes! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Well Mr Jason & Dr Patel are still attempting to put the fun into the funk, but possibly not managing.. Have they Still Got What It Takes To Funk Your Faces Off? Let us radio and see..
FORMA - Recorded on location at Cakeshop in New York, I was hanging out there with my friend Jason (a different Jason, although I was there too..), and Jason (the one who I just mentioned) was doing the live sound at the venue, so I setup my 8 track reel to reel tape machine in the sound booth, and let the good times roll, for your delight. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week, Iain gets Jason into another fine mess, by way of an unexpected adventure of epic proportions! Will they get back home safe in time for the peak of the party? Well, you'll just have to stay tooned to find out. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
We are now officially back into the swing of things. I'm glad we got that swing fitted. It makes the ceiling sag a little bit, and the neighbors don't complain as often as I expected them to, so it's all good Jerry. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
CLOUDLAND CANYON - Recorded on location at Cakeshop in New York, I was hanging out there with my friend Jason (a different Jason, although I was there too..), and Jason (the one who I just mentioned) was doing the live sound at the venue, so I setup my 8 track reel to reel tape machine in the sound booth, and let the good times roll, for your delight. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Thanks fudge, Iain's back! It's the old team, back together again! Iain's been away, filming his new TV show, "It's Lorway or the Norway", but he's taken time out of his busy schedule to help Jason out of the "talent slump" that he's been in.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
Thanks the baby Jeebus, Lorway is back from Norway, and here he is, walking through the Doorway! Not the whole of today's show is gonna rhyme, or neccesarily be funny, but we'll certainly give it our best show. Time to get back into the swing. Of things. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Well Mr Jason & Dr Patel Are Reunited And Once Again Putting The 'Unk' Back In 'Funk'? Have they Still Got What It Takes To Funk Your Faces Off? Let us radio and see..
PUBLICIST - This was a fun one! Recorded on location at Cakeshop in New York, I was hanging out there with my friend Jason (a different Jason, although I was there too..), and Jason (the other one) soundchecked this guy with drums, synths, vocoder and stuff, and it sounded pretty awesome, and he was the sweetest guy. But then when it came his turn to burn, he had a lazer pointer thing, pointed at his white tshirt. And a thick gold chain, circa 1983. And the crowd went wild, even if you can't tell from my terrible photos. It was pretty impossible to get got photos, partly cos I'm a terrible photographer; partly cos Cakeshop gave me free drinks, and partly cos it was pitch black in the venue, apart from the lazer pointer.. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Well, it's me again, the J to the A.S.O.N, all on my lonesome, and I can't say that I'm happy about that. There's still no Lorway, cos he's only just got back from Norway.. So, I'll be doing my best to cope until next week when he returns to the fold. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week's show is hopefully the last with just Jason flying solo. We've had an email come flooding in, asking when Lorway's returning from Norway. Well, he's back already, but just not on today's show. So, next week you're in for a real treat, with the old team, back together again. It's gonna be emotional. But for now? Can I kick it? Let's Radio and see!
THE SIZE NINES - Norwich's premier "shoe size" themed band are today, to sooth your minds with their brand of indie rock. I noticed some good influences in there, including Cameo, Stereolab, Dinosaur Jr, , Lemonheads, The Gigolo Aunts. Quite how many of these bands The Size Nines have actually heard though is debatable. I certainly like all the bands on that list, and I also like The Size Nines, so everythings alright in OSSville. :o) Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Well, I'm back in the U they like to call the K, all on my lonesome, and I can't say that I'm happy about that. There's no Emily on this week's show, cos she's still in the US of the A, and there's no Lorway, cos Lorway is in Norway.. So, I'll be doing my best to cope. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week's show marks another triumverate return of the Jason they begrudgingly like to call Mr. Is this show anywhere near as good as Iain & Phoebe's show was? Well, to be brutally honest, no, no it isn't. I mean, it's obvious, right from the start.. But that's an unfair comparison. Two against one! That's so unfair! Can I kick it? Let's Radio and see!
This week, Mr Jason comes at you from the other, other, side of the Atlantic. In other, better words, he's back home, in the U to the K. He's still missing the company of sexy Dr Patel, whose 42nd birthday it is today.. Will Jason ever win the good Doctor's love? Let us radio and see..
THE DREEBS - I was hanging out at Cakeshop, on Ludlow St in Manhattan, and my friend Justin was telling me that the next band playing were really great, and well worth seeing. So, just incase they were indeed great, we set up a bunch of mics, and recorded them onto analogue tape. Turns out they were great after all. Incredible dynamics, going from whispered vocals, to screaming, at the bat of a lash. Check it out. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Yep, lucky boy that I am, I'm still on my holidays in the S of the UA, but it's all coming to an abrupt end, all too soon. For this, my final Planet Beet from NYC, I've employed the talents of voice-under artiste ordinaire, Emily Youssef. You may have heard her on The Funk & Soul Hour a few months ago. Realistically though, you probably didn't.. Listen on, and Thor Out to some great music for the next hour of your stupid life. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week Iain is joined by a new co-host for the UK College Music Show - Phoebe O'Donnell. In between all the great music you can listen to their senseless banter. This week's show also features some exclusive new tracks from James Eliot Taylor, recorded live last week!
BONNIE MONTGOMERY - I've been lucky enough to see Bonnie play a couple of gigs whilst on my Holidays in NYC, and I'm even more lucky that we're now friends. We recorded this session at Cakeshop, a music venue, in the Lower East Side. But beforehand, we went to Katz's Deli, to get overpriced, but delicious, sandwiches. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Yep, lucky boy that I am, I'm still on my hodilays in the S of the UA, and I've been scour the small venues of New York (so much better than the old one..) finding a load of fresh victims to debut for your ears on this fine institution. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
Forgive the tiredness of this weeks narration. Iain, your host is just back from the Latitude Festival and hasn't quite recovered yet... Still, there is some great music in this week's show. Oh.. Go on then... Let's Radio!!
This week, Mr Jason comes at you from the other side of the Atlantic. He's on his Summer Holiday, but will his relaxed condition (OK, he's hungover.. Happy now!?) make for excellent radio? Well, there's only one way to find out. Let us radio and see..
MOONMEN ON THE MOON, MAN - This session was a sonofabitch to nail down. We tried to schedule it for a few weeks, and each time, one of more of us couldn't make it, or had to cancel. We finally pulled it together, got a rockin sound, I pressed "record" on the tape machine, and away we went! It sounded awesome, but at the start of the 2nd song the tape machine switched off, and wouldn't switch back on, so we had to abandon the session! I fixed the tape maching, and here we are, a few weeks later, and luckily everything went as planned this time. I love this band, and all the people in it. There. I said it. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Today marks the return of Mr Jason to the shores of Planet Beet. He's still on his hodilays in the S of the UA, but does he let that minor detail stop him from delivering to you a show full of tasty audio morsels? Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
This week's show marks the triumverate return of the Jason they begrudgingly like to call Mr. Is this show anywhere near as good as Iain's solo shows have been? Well, if you don't think so, don't forget that you can vote either of them out of the house! And don't forget to Twat us on Spotify! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
RIFLE RECOIL - This band had been recommended to me by a whole bunch of different people, and I knew Jeff, but had not heard his music before. What a pleasant suprise it was though. And I hope you lovely people feel the same way. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
My god, I have such a packed full of Jam show for you today - if Jam was music anyway. Musical Jam, now there's an untapped market... Hmm. So anyway, you can hear a couple more tracks from our album and calssic album of the month (Alan Southgate and Camille Davila) plus some great tracks new and old and me muttering in between. Make yourself a hot squash, settle back and turn off your mobile phone...
More music and less chat this week. This week's show features more great tracks from the (free to download) albums we've been playing over the last few weeks - Including Characters From Books, Men, The Captain, Raevennan Husbandes etc etc. Plus More of your favourite UK Colege based bands. Come on...
This week, Mr Jason comes at you from the other side of the Atlantic. He's on his Summer Holiday, but will his relaxed condition (OK, he's hungover.. Happy now!?) make for excellent radio? Well, there's only one way to find out. Let us radio and see..
YONI GORDON - I had the luck of seeing Yoni Gordon completely wow an audience at a small gig into complete spellbound silence recently, and just had to bring him to you beautiful people, for a live session. It turned out real nice. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Hello. There is some absolutely brilliant music in this week's show, as usual... We've got all the genres! ... Rock, Indie, Alternative Pop.. Seriously though, listen to the whole show if you can spare an hour. Why not have it on in the background whilst playing on your weebox or twitting off a twat on Twitter, How should I know what you kids are upto these days.. I'm 30 god damn it!?
SOOOOOO much music on todays show and it's all brilliant. Some old, some new, but mostly all new for you!! Listen in, all the way though. It's the UK COLLEGE MUSIC SHOW!!
This week's victim, I mean guest, is Jason Kelly, from Hardly Art recording astistes "Fergus & Geronimo". I saw them play recently, and they were excellent, so I just had to get Jason in to the studio to record some songs for y'everybody at the earliest convenience. It turns out it was actually very inconvenient, but he did it anyway. What a super trooper!
This week we have more from our new album of the month - Pimp your state of mind by Alan Southgate, some new tracks from Chimes and Bells and Faster than Robots and some classic tracks from La Shark and Bearsuit! Come on...
Hello, we have some great music on this week's show. It's difficult to decide but, I think the last song is probably my favourite. Which one is yours? I suppose you had better listen to all of them to make your mind up... Well, what are you waiting for..?
This week I'm gonna be playing you a bunch of classics, and at the other end of the spectrum, a couple of brand new singles by current artistes, and hopefully you don't notice any discrepancy between the two vintages. Can we kick it? Let us radio and see!
FOLLOW YOUR HEART - And what better advice to the youngsters of today, than to follow your heart. This soopergroop features brothers Mat & Sam Riviere swapping between drums, and between them also playing guitar and keyboard (and drumpads!) and vocals, with Jim singing and playing the fiddly guitar bits, and Ed playing bass and being lovely. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week we come to the end of our classic album of the month, which was Kaito's 'You've seen us, you must have seen us...' but never fear, for we have a brand new (and as yet, unreleased) album of the month from Alan Southgate and will be featuring a couple of tracks from that in the show. As well as that there is a boat load of fine music from some great unsigned acts. Come on...
Hello and welcome to the UK College Music Show. This week, as usual, you will hear some of the finest UK College related music that I could get my hands on this week... theres plenty of stuff that you won't have heard before from acts that you may have heard of before. Plus! this week there's more comedy from Mike and Bacon. What d'ya say?
There are quite a few 2-piece drum & guitar duos in Norwich, but I think these are the most stoppy-startiest, instrumentalest, cymbal-grabbiest, tallest, fuzzy-hairiest of ALL those groups, HANDS DOWN! I present to you, my lucky listener, BALACLAVA KID & DAD!
Jammy Jettsetting Jason is off on holiday AGAIN people. There is something fishy going on I think. Maybe he is an international drug dealer and just makes radio shows as a front? Maybe he is a Spy, working for the British Government? Who knows!? Despite the stuttering Lain Lorwey talking in the gaps, there is some fine music to be heard throughout this week's show - more tracks from our current Album of the Month - Getting Closer (retaining the soul by numbers) by the brilliant Shane O'linski. More from our Classic Album from kaito, the next 'folover song' by the Electirc Set etc... etc... Come on, what do you say?!
Welcome to another fine episode of the UK College music show. This week you'll hear more of the best college related music that I could get my hands on this week. We have some exclusive tracks from Jess Wilson, some archive Shane O'Linski and even some comedy!! it literally is packed with jam.
Mr Jason & Dr Patel hit you in the face once again with another hour of the finest Funk & Soul. Can they kick it? Let us radio and see..
HEART OF A DOG - This band features Iain "The Doorway" Lorway guesting on guitar, piano, and melodica. But don't let that put you off! Heart Of A Dog are excellent, as they proved at the launch gig for their debut LP, at The Bicycle Shop in Norwich, where I was lucky enough to be doing sound. Their 2nd EP is out soon, and you'll hear tracks from both EPs on today's session. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
To be honest, this probably isn't the best show we've ever made. To be dishonest, it IS the best show we've ever made. Are we lying all the time? Are we telling the truth all the time? Let's find out.. Today's PB comes to you from Old School Studios, Studio C. Same great quality. Same great taste. Same great big idiots.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
On this week's show we're wishing that Johnson was still here with us.. He isn't dead or anything, but BOY can he talk! Don't get me wrong; we can talk our share of meaningless crap, but he's summin else! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
LA ROQ SPORTIF - Now, you may remember this shambolic & bangy garage-rock 4-peice from when they played one of the Planet Beet Private Parties a while ago? OK, maybe not then.. I, personally, think they're just about the most handsome band in the world, if not the universe, but I realise that you might not be able to agree with me, without upsetting your partners. You know I'm right though.. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
Well, we're recovering from the high of having Johnson in the studio with us for yesterday's UK College show, so apologies if Ian and I don't live up to the dizzy heights achieved effortlessly on that show.. Today's PB comes to you from Old School Studios, Studio C. Same great quality. Same great taste. Same great big idiots.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
On this week's show we are lucky enough to have Johnson in the studio with us. It's been ages since he's appeared on the show, and it's always fun. Listen to him gossip, give his opinions on local music, and generally make Iain and I struggle to keep from giggling. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
Mr Jason Is Once Again Re-united With The Witty & Handsome Dr Patel. Radio Is Back! (Not That It Ever Left) All Rejoyce & Let Us Radio!!
THE RUM LARKERS - If you want to know what the band name means, then it probably helps if you're from Norfolk in the UK. And even then, it still might not make much sense to you, haha! I enjoyed Penny Le Squire's acoustic set so much the other week, that I invited them back into the studio, with their full band, and these are the lovely results. I hope you enjoy. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
So, I hope you don't get the impression that we're in a rush, on this weeks show of joy; even though we clearly are.. We've made sure we play some excellent music, and chatted some excellent chat, so you've really nothing to complain about. The show comes to you from Old School Studios, Studio C. Same great quality. Same great taste. Same great big idiots.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
What you're about to receive is classified information. I'm not sure how it's classified as information, cos it's not actually very informative. Oh well, whaddaya gonnado! Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
RAEVENNAN HUSBANDES - Well, today's session was really refreshing for me. Raevennan has a beautiful voice, and real skills on the guitar, along with Nathan on guitar, and Sam on the Cahon and tambourines. Lovely people playing lovely music. Make sure you catch them live soon, as Rae's songs are even more mesmerising when you witness them "live". Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!
This week's show brings you many things. Music (yep!), comedy (debatable..), chat (the quality of which is questionable..), rumours (fo sho!), gossip (oh boy, YES!), a lack of proper jingles (hmmm..), legal disputes (again), and most importantly, FUN!! The show comes to you from Old School Studios, Studio C. Same great quality. Same great taste. Same idiots.. Whadaya say? Let's Radio!
I'm writing this blurb in advance, so I'm not sure what the weather is really like outside at the moment, or what major events have been happening around the world. Anyway, we should be concentrating on the matter in hand, which is playing good music from UK College based bands, so let's do that. Can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
This week, for one show only, Jason is joined by the beautiful Sultan Pepa, for a trawl through the backstreets of his mind, and the alleyways of his soul. Hopefully he'll be avoiding the pitfalls of bad music, and keeping you tipped to the top with poppermost tunes. Can they radio? Let us find out!
LAND EQUIVALENTS - Today's session was unique, as I was lucky enough to have music business stalwart "Emily Youssef" in the studio with me, making all the big decisions. Jim from Land Equivalents sure appreciated this, and I'm pretty sure it fired him up to pull off a storming set. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!

PENNY LE SQUIRE - This week it's the turn of Penny Le Squire to grace the hallowed halls of Old School Studios. Or rather, Old School Studios - Studio B. They're playing as a duo, but look out for a forthcoming full-band session from Studio A sometime within the next two months. They're great live, and you can catch them this coming Tuesday, the 10th May, at The Bicycle Shop, Norwich, supporting James Eliot Taylor. Apologies for the lack of photos this week. There were, erm, camera problems.. Woops.. Hey, Whaddaya Say, Let's Radio!

It's a lovely sunny day outside my window, and I'm sitting indoors typing this, whilst all my friends are probably drinking up the sun, and drinks, in a beer garden just across the road! But do I care? Of course I bloody do! Oh well, can we kick it? Let's Radio and see!
