As a mammoth task (or is that tusk) I’ve now uploaded all Radio Clash shows to Mixcloud, just in time for the 10th anniversary tomorrow. That’s 427 hours, 21 minutes and 29 seconds of music, chat, bad mixing, interviews and silliness! That’s 17.7 days. And it will be 5 seconds shy off 430 hours when #271 goes live – 429:59:55!
So since the last Mixcloud update, (upto #75) we have had many firsts:
The Ivor Cutler show, which listening back I’m still really proud of. I think this was the first Radio Clash about one artist.
The first year show, with endless lists with Kirk:
The first show about John Peel – there was at least one other, #195’s Keep It Peel – but many other nods to the great man over the last 10 years.
The 3rd time I travelled while podcasting was a 3 parter to US and Canada – I’ll always remember podcasting in a field on a farm Canada as the sun set:
The first Aural pOddities show, recently upto #5:
The first outside show, the first travel show recorded on my old iRiver, appropriately with long time supported of the show, Bicyclemark:
The infamous #18 DJNoNo mix show, the first appearance of that irrasciable robot behind the decks. Very silly mashups, and actually still very good, if I say myself:
The first Tim And Kirk Show – we also had the first ever podcast on psychedelic ‘magic’ mushrooms, which were then legal (I suspect first in the world!). It’s not as exciting as it sounds, though.
And the first Radio Clash, tie-clip mic taped to a tripod stand, and all!
