Welcome to the first of my podcasts from Rob Watson Media. Over the next couple of months I’m going to share some music that I’ve grown up with, and that I’ve made a connection with over the years.
It’s not all looking at the past, I also hope to share some music that is going to lead me on a journey through 2013.
Coming up are tracks from The Teardrop Explodes, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, John Barry, Bernard Herrman, Richard Wagner and Witold Lutoslowski, among others.
As well as playing some of my favourite music, I’ll also talk about some of the authors I’m reading at the moment, and the other types of media that I’m following and enjoying.
I’ve split the podcast into two – the upbeat stuff is in the first half, and the more extended tracks are in the second half.
