Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the Jellyheads track as much as I enjoyed the rest of the podcast. Top stuff all round!

Our album is indeed on sale now: on CD at thejellyheads.com and on CD and download at CD Baby. We also have a Myspace page, if you’d like to be our “friend” or drop us a line. Cheers!

This is such a great bunch of songs! So contrasty!

Halfway through my second listening, I think I’ve decided that Teleprompt is my new jam.

Devon Sproule, you shine in the dark places of my heart, right there with Lucinda Williams and Kathleen Edwards.

Lots of women representin’ this week. I love it!

I DID enjoy that Jellyheads song. I think I was expecting something different and what came out of my speakers was so much more than my expectations!

i really enjoy hearing the difference between the musicians’ speaking voices and singing voices.

and i didn’t even know chris was in a band!

Just double checkin next week’s theme – it’s Poetry, yes?

agnes–yes, you’re correct. does that mean you’re in? 🙂

Providing that my recording and stuff goes ok…then yes! About to give it a go, fingers crossed…

Well .. I know that Agnes has something to look forward to tomorrow.


I always enjoy the musicians episodes. If any of you have musician friends who might like to be on the next one, please do send them along.

Chris, I loved your band’s track. And what a great name for a song. Also really enjoyed L’Embelie and Long Goodbyes. Great podcast.

Thank you very much for letting me be a part of your podcast. The entire album HARD HOLIDAYS is available for free download from http://www.jonathansproject.com. Hope everyone enjoyed! 🙂

Tim, nice tracks in this issue. I think I will check out Marianne Dissard when she’s in Providence end of Jan ’09. BTW, have you checked out Greg Hawkes new Beatles UKE CD? See the video at
