Tuesday and Wednesday!

Well after all of the excitement during the week a few run-of-the-mill days were welcome. My rare day off yesterday was spent doing a whole lot of nothing much--- although we did get our Jam site at Myspace up and running. It's not finished yet though so I won't post the link but I'm looking forward to getting some music up and on it.

Myself and Colm (Kenefick) spent ages looking through old Jam photos from the early days of the Savoy, but we had great difficulty trying to sort them all out (Check out Blackalicious above) There's loads and loads of pics on both my Mac and on CD's upstairs but they were a bit all over the place and it took some work to find some we wanted. Some are on the wrong format to which is a bitch but hey who cares! There's many more that I must sort out but my studio is some mess of millions of records, CD's and all sorts of other crap! I'm converting our attic later in the year and I can't wait to get more organised, although amazingly, I can still locate most records within a few minutes!

I also got Bebo'd up the other day which is dead handy for communicating with the vast amount of teenagers turning Bebo into a huge web sensation! It's more of a younger people's thing really but it's handy since I do so much gigs and workshops for teenagers. It's amazing really I've only been using Bebo two days and already it seems to have been around forever! I can see why teenagers find it so addictive-it's also very much their own thing and they more or less call the shots on their own profiles and create their own community-it's excellent-I'm at As I said though, the Jam at myspace is where we are gonna get our Jam profile back up and running-we have good plans for Jam as we appraoch 5 years this summer! The next Jam Junior is coming up in April but I'll talk about that another day.

I was back working on Red today and the show went well. After Red Drive my Music Overload starts at 7PM and it's really starting to really take off in the last few months-the volume of texts is going crazy! Tunes like "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley, Kanye's "Touch the Sky" and Rhianna's "S.O.S" are going well with the more housey and big indie/rock hits (Artic Monkey's, BellX1 etc). For a mainstream show the mix of music is quite "on it" and I'm really enjoying the interaction with the listeners. I was out there from 2pm today for a DJ meeting at work and got home around 9.30 tonight. I've a few things to do on the net before I relax in front of a movie or something and get ready for tomorrow. Teenage Thursdays is back and there's another big hip-hop gig in town (Ugly Duckling/Giant Panda)-boy, time flys when you are having fun!
