Edinburgh Man #191

February 5th, 2015

It’s the first rambling podcast of the year… and I’m not ready for it. Firstly I couldn’t even find the cables that would allow me to broadcast live. And secondly I had at least four, maybe five, abortive attempts at starting the show. We got there in the end though.

I also have a new years resolution – if I don’t have anything interesting to say I’m just going to play some music. How did I get on so far? You decide.

Best of 2014 Part 2

December 30th, 2014

It’s the end of year podcast – the last one of 2014. As such I’m tucking into an array of left over Christmas food and drink, including a nice red ale and the remnants of a cheese selection. All the good cheeses have gone mind you, and I’m stuck with Wensleydale and Cranberry. There’s also a gingerbread house… although that’s been kicking around for a couple of weeks so I suspect it’s not a great idea to start on that.

Anyway, more importantly it’s the second half of the best tracks from 2014 as voted by the listeners of the show. Some fantastic selections in there, and the number one track is absolutely spot on if you ask me.

Best of 2014 Part 1

December 23rd, 2014

I have port (both store bought and home made) and a thumb piano. This can only mean it’s the first part of the annual Edinburgh Man end-of-year poll results show.

Throughout the month of December listeners to the podcast have been voting for their five favourites tracks from 2014 that were played on the show. These votes have been counted and crunched and the resulting list will be played over two shows. This is the first one – tracks 50 down to number 25.

A word of warning – I consume two glasses of port throughout the podcast and there is some rambling as a result. Next time I’ll stick to Christmas tea. Honest.

Edinburgh Man #190

December 18th, 2014

Ah, the last regular podcast of the year. And the good news for me is that I can now drink again. To celebrate I’ve cracked open the Aldi Tawny Port (which is rather nice) and pulled together the most chilled out, and slightly festive playlist that I could managed. In fact, I was tidying up this week and found some homemade white “port” lurking at the back of a cupboard in a demijohn. I haven’t tasted it yet, but took a whiff and if nothing else it smells fairly alcoholic. Perhaps next week’s first part of the end-of-year poll may have to be fuelled by this questionable liquid.

1. Randolph’s Leap – “One More Sleep ’til Christmas” (Played courtesy of Randolph’s Leap)
2. eagleowl – “Clean the Night” (Played courtesy of wiaiwya)
3. Lowpines – “Heavy hander” (Played courtesy of EardrumsPop, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
4. entertainment for the braindead – “An Answer” (Played courtesy of entertainment for the braindead)
5. Aunt Sis – “Heirs” (Played courtesy of Bleeding Gold Records)
6. Cloudkicker – “Sky Guide” (Played courtesy of Cloudkicker, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
7. Collapsible Mountains – “Lights Have Gone Out” (Played courtesy of Collapsible Mountains)
8. ballboy – “Merry Christmas to the Drunks, Merry Christmas to the Lovers” (Played courtesy of ballboy)
