BRAND NEW SHOW ALERT!! BRITISH INVASION Ep 22.5 JULY 2021
The British are coming!! The British are coming!!
Let the reverie begin for all music lovers who will hear these great sounds and bands from our fine talented friends from "across the pond"!!
Its nearing the 4th of July here in the states as we celebrate our great yet tattered country that has much rebuilding to do but we are Americans and we are resilient just like our friendships abroad. As we look back to important holidays like Memorial Day, where so many allied forces gave their lives in the name of freedom, we are reminded of great relationships forged over the years with our friends we fought so hard to break free from then we fought along side of to help rid the world of tyranny.
Memorial Day weekend 2015, NARROW PLAINS won a spectacular contest to come to the states and work with famed producer John Davenport and play a couple gigs while they were here. I got the pleasure of meeting with the gents in my home area at the Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC. I was elated to meet these fine chaps, we had a beer, some laughs, and a great interview which you can find posted on the podcast feed. I was honored to flap my gums with the fellas for 320 mins and record their show. I used some "live excerpts" from the show in Greensboro and mixed them with their song they recorded at Deep River Studios in Sanford NC, USA!
So with Memorial Day recently passing in May and 4th of July coming its a great time to remember and honor our British, Irish, and Scottish pals from way across the "giant lake" of salt and seaweed...lol
Speaking of memorials....We have a special TRIBUTE in this episode for VIOLA BEACH, young British rockers with a HUGE future who's lives were so tragically taken from this world in a terrible auto accident in Sweden in 2016! Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these wonderful young men. I appreciate this rare opportunity I was given to help support this band and help with their release of a possible new tribute album in the future! I'm very honored to Have VIOLA BEACH in my camp of talented artists!
Its so ironic to be doing this show now unplanned mind you, I got the idea off one of my US artists spent some time evidently in London and met a friend or potential lover, not sure which. She wrote a song called "Hey London" and I just ran it in the (Summerscapes episode, June 2021) all about places around the world and how you get there and want to get back home. Great episode! It made me think about London and Narrow Plains and all my good friends and bands and radio stations that support the show! I said its time to do something special for my friends in the UK!! (some I'd consider family, just love you guys!!)
Then the irony of all to release it unplanned at our Independence Day from England who are now are best chums on the planet!!...lol
