Great to see the WROB community starting to make their mark and leaving me with less of the gruntwork in putting a kickass show together!
This time, old podcasting friend Graham Williams drops a cleverly themed set of tracks in, with a little help from the ladies in his life. With everything from the KLF to a male voice choir, expect the unexpected. This one gave me the warm fuzzies.
Oh, my darlings. This one is for you. Embrace it with all your hearts. Not sure how you do that, actually. Surely you need arms to embrace things.
ANYWAY. Music, poetry, ramblings and nonsense from Caversham’s answer to Whispering Bob Harris. Featuring Crowded House, Beyonce, Erasure and The Dickies.
Yes, well, let’s not talk about the tumbleweed that has been blowing through the studio here in sunny Caversham for the last year and a bit. Rather, let us celebrate the fact that we have returned.
Further cause for celebration: a cracking set of tunes from our podcasting pal Clive Ashenden, who serves up an eclectic mix of soul, dance, prog, and artcore. This will enrich your lives. Let it in, feel the joy.
Hi, there. We are WROB. We’re all about love, unity, and music. Join us, whydoncha?
In this edition of the show, Rob talks about luck, coincidence, superstition and all those forces that lead us to think that we’re not really in charge of our own destinies. Featuring tracks from the usual eclectic range of artists, from the Stones to Jamie Woon, Beach Slang to Kenny Rogers.
Lucky you, it’s a treat for your ears this Friday the 13th!
(Foolish Rob also forgot to mention the Prince Far I track at 1:33:38. It’s his righteous version of Deck Of Cards. Preach dem!)
It’s FrightFest weekend, so Rob goes the full horror with a playlist including tracks from The Misfits, PJ Harvey, DangerMouse featuring David Lynch (yes, that David Lynch) and two tracks from the master of electronic horror music, John Carpenter!
The lights are growing dim. Settle in and enjoy the ride…
We’re working on giving the show a little structure. Therefore, we have a featured album of the week, and a recipe! Newness from Gary Clark Jr and Deerhunter, and requests from artists like Tom Waits, Mickey & The Soul Generation and Smokey Bastard.
WROB: the aural equivalent of Care In The Community.
In which we are subject to a takeover from the mysterious vinyl mixologer DJ Unknown. Esoterica ensues. Immerse yourself in the crackly goodness.
In which Rob reveals rather more about his deepest, darkest urges than is perhaps appropriate for a first-timer.
Featuring new music from Prince and Wilco, and a subtle blend of esoterica and off-brand weirdness.
Seriously, if nothing else, check out the Elvis track at the end of the show. You’ll never look at him the same way again.
