Podwireless Archive Spring 2015

 

PLAY LINK: PODWIRELESS ARCHIVE SPRING 2015

(This playlink is to Mixcloud streaming:  you can also download the podcasts from Podomatic )

 

Here's one last mid-month Podwireless special before reverting to just doing the monthly new release roundups over the summer (since most of you are probably now less in need of lockdown distractions!) And it's also, by the way, going to allow me more time to pack up and move house, which is happening this summer too.

Anyway, once again a couple of consecutive programmes from ye olde archive of when Podwireless used to be fRoots Radio. These are more recent than others I've unearthed over the past lockdown year – a mere six years old, from Spring 2015, fresh as daisies! Watch out for the seasonally timed selection of May songs in the second show.

By the way, can I be cheeky and mention that Podwireless is available for free: a labour of love and public service netcasting.

Podwireless Archive Spring 2006

 

PLAY LINK: PODWIRELESS ARCHIVE SPRING 2006

(This playlink is to Mixcloud streaming:  you can also download the podcasts from Podomatic )

 

For your mid-month continuing lock-in delectation, I've put together two programmes first heard over the interweb in April and May 2006 during Podwireless’s earlier incarnation as fRoots Radio, associated with fRoots magazine (RIP). You'll notice how many more major ‘world music’ (as we still called it then) releases there still were 15 years ago, before that all fell off a cliff. The 2008 world economic recession gave the coup de grâce to what had already begun with travel restrictions after events in Manhattan in September 2001 and a record industry battered by digital. All this was before the contemporary era of artist self-production and Bandcamp distribution really took off, greatly increasing releases by UK folk artists.

Some of the label web links that were given back then no longer work – the labels no longer exist. Even if they do, you may find that the CDs are out of catalogue. In those cases your first stop to track down a copy might be Discogs
