An update thing.

Yes, it's that all-too-rare blog update where I tell you what's been happening and what might happen in the future:
  • I'm still trying to figure out a convenient way of obtaining and uploading mp3 logs of the show, which has been requested by two or three people. Stay tuned.
  • top Auckland turntablist Scratch 22 came up a few weeks ago and did a marvelously eclectic set which you can download here.
  • Nigel Wright played some gorgeous live-to-air drone last Thursday (mp3 coming soon) and received a caller who said it was "amazing". He has a new 7" out called Mossopolis.
  • Dean Roberts & Jenny Lange were meant to come up too but couldn't make it so they'll be doing a live set for this coming Thursday's (June 2nd) show.
  • My friend James started a new music blog called Michael Music Blog and I'll be contributing the occasional post, spotlighting some favourite tracks that I've been diggin'.
See you again in six months.
