Alternate versions..meaning..covers??? Or alternate takes of a song by the same band?

Can’t wait to listen to the musicians here! I always find at least one new band/artist to love with this series!

These are always amongst my favorite episdoes…brilliant intro, Tim. Brenda eh? That Naomi Hall track is just plain adorable.

Thanks for putting my brother and I up on here (Technically he’s just JBro, but it’s not really that big of a deal since I’m the only one who calls him that)

Wooo hoo the Shakes! I love that group…

Glad you liked the intro .. my back still hurts but I’m sure whatever Brenda did will work out in the long run as being good for me. She did used to work for the Queen Mum after all and she lived to 101.

Just to clarify. I think Alternate takes means other versions by the original band .. not covers.

i listened to the whole thing and i can’t say there’s a bad track on it–great bunch of songs. i really do enjoy hearing the musicians talk about themselves and their music, and i love to hear their speaking voices and then their singing voices. very interesting to compare and contrast. : )

for alternate versions do u want a song and also a different version? do u play both back to back? or do u want alternate versions of songs that have already been played on here?

cheers, mark , the me band

Good stuff, all you musos! Cindy, I liked your ode to cat. Pik, how lovely to hear you finally! I also greatly enjoyed The Shakes (tres Blur, non?) and Anibal Miranda’s skirty song.

So when’s the next musician cast?? 😉

I know I’m late, to check this one out, but I just want to say. I love it! This is infinitely better than mainstream radio. Hippo, keep on dancing!

That Loaf of bread man song is great. I hope he’s ok now and not too mental.

Just wanted to ask a question about your site: who makes/where do you get the little embedded player that you have on your site? I occasionally see them on blogs but they’re generally not used much, I don’t know why not, I think they look pretty cool. Ok, err, that’s all, good site! Thanks!

Thanks. The audio player is a wordpress plugin and as such only works on wordpress blogs … which might be why you haven’t seen it too much. More’s the pity!
