4 Playlists – Aug 2017 Radio Six International

Hey all, so I have just wrapped another month of shows on Radio Six International. As I’ve been a bit remiss about listing the playlists on social media each week, I thought I’d do a 4 Playlists post for all the August 2017 shows…It’s been fun. Some great new music (if not new track, new to me acts) this series. Some of them were so good I played them a couple of times. Incidentally – my fave band of the year so far is Cigarettes After Sex (US or try UK here). Hat tip to my Ex, Kenny for that one.

Also liked the BNQT (the super group known as “Banquet”) a fair bit too. Good to play some new music by Canyon City, Andrew Belle and the Souther boys Knox Hamilton* as well. (Got to see them* live in SF this summer which was pretty fantabulous).

Anywhere here are the 4 playlists, in order, for my August 2017 series of show.

Well that’s all for this series on Radio Six International, and possibly ever on Radio Six, I am not really sure…I never say never…so we’ll see.

I had a lot of tracks I wanted to play but simply too hard to cram into an hour…I also had intended on doing a Scottish show and never did that. Apart from the two chaps in BNQT – I didn’t really play any Scottish acts. Maybe somewhere else, some time else. We’ll see.

Did you see the last post about the Dixie Chicks, if not go here.

Thea Newcomb Show – Back on Radio Six

The Thea Newcomb Show

So pleased to be back on the radio for a new series of The Thea Newcomb Show (aka “September songs”, if you will) on Radio Six International, a Scotland-based internet radio station.

It’ll likely just be for a month or possibly two – just to get my skills back up to scratch. Hopefully you’ll find what I lack in skill, I more than make up for in passion.

Anyone who knows me knows that presenting radio shows is my absolute passion. There is literally little that I enjoy more than talking and playing new music especially (sometimes with some classics thrown in too) for my listeners.

So this weekend my first show aired for 2016 and I thought I’d share the playlist of that show here, now.

Next Week’s Show..

Currently working on next week’s show, today. It takes me 3-4 hours to produce a one-hour show, which is why I don’t do series longer than a month or maybe two.

I have too many other things I do (training all over Scotland, run a makeup company, sell cards, and run – but I enjoy sourcing tracks and researching a bit about them – a few times a year.

This week I’ve picked up (or should I say downloaded?) new music from Ed Harcourt and the latest EP from Susie Suh which somehow came out with my knowledge! Both of them will be on the playlist for show 2. And, I think I’ll kick off the show with this one…What do you reckon?

Yay or nay?

Any Musical Suggestions?

If you have anyone you think I should play on my radio show, please let me know. This could be your own work or someone you love – that you think I will too.

You can see from show one’s playlists the times of acts I play…Show two may have some more peppy tracks. It all depends on the mood when I am choosing!

My radio show airs Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday too. See the Radio Six International Schedule page but be aware the times marked there are an hour earlier than my show. So when it says 10am it’s 11am UK time. It’s confusing I know.

If you’re in business in Glasgow, then please join me at the next #29Social – at 29 Private Members Club September 28.
