28th September 2011
Those of you that know me and / or read
these pages will know that I have quite a strong attachment to The Global
Cafe and RISC in Reading. (Indeed, I have a bit of a strange story to tell
that happened there last week but other commitments have prevented me writing
it yet - hopefully Friday).
Unfortunately RISC has had its funding cut.
I know I'm biased but I do think Reading will be the worse off if it loses
one of the few independent and unique establishments in which to socialise
in. It's also a great live music venue. Consequently, RISC is now accepting
donations. Any donations made before the end of the month will be matched
by Berkshire Community Foundation and LocalGiving.com which means effectively
that the value of a donation is doubled. Details can be found here

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show
Reading4U DJ Joanne wrote a very nice review of a gig I did in 2012 and has played Something Wild quite a few times on her Strawberry Sunday Radio show. Later in the year I had a great interview with her which can be found here, the success of which I think was largely due to the obvious background work she did in preparation for the interview.
Understandably I'm biased because Joanne has been so favourable but I do think she does a great show if you like indie rock, hearing about upcoming bands and a lot more more besides. Strawberry Sundae is on every Sunday at 6pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
