Plentycast #21

And so it came to pass that the sudden, unexpected re-apprearance of that bright, heat-giving thing in the sky, coupled with the just cooked tea warmth in my flat led to us getting a bit more of those little beads of sweat on our brows as we began recording. Because of that, I had to open a window so you'll hear some hustle and bustle from the street outside but I imagine that won't temper your enjoyment all that much...

Is it summer at last? Will it last? Who knows. What I do know is that you've happened across another hour and half of quality tuneage with our usual banter in between them. This time around we introduce the "Good Songs by Shite Bands" feature and give a wee nod to the birthday of a good friend of ours. Phew, need to get the air in again in here! Two days in a row, unparalleled riches indeed...

Anyway, click on!

Plentycast #20

We've reached the dizzy heights of podcast #20 then. Riches indeed...

In this edition we introduce a new element to the proceedings, namely us playing both sides of a 7" record over the course of the programme. This stemmed from the request we received to play the Palace Brothers song "Ohio River Boat Song" and thinking that the B-side is pretty damn good as well so why don't we play that too? So we did!

If you'd like to suggest a 7" to play in future shows then by all means do so and it would be nice to hear from you (and not just about this, get in touch via the Facebook page or on Twitter @plentycast). I've got an idea for the next in the series but we'd be delighted to receive suggestions from the listening hordes out there.

There's some cricket chat as well, but don't let that put you off.
