Cheers - The Debut Gig @ The Global Cafe 2008 (Part 2)

(Individual songs can be seen on YouTube ).


Thank you very much for supporting me last night.

It's hard for me to judge how well it went but everyone has been very generous saying it went well, and if that's the case it's because you made it very easy for me. Special thanks to Mr Windridge for sitting in the corner and making me look good. (:-) (Cheers mate for stepping in at the last minute, great job)

Anyway, you made it a very special birthday (did I forget to mention that? (:-) )

Thanks also to Richard Worthington, Daood Khan, Natalie Koldieg who took the video; Tutu Melaku and Will Gooding for allowing me to perform for the first time at RISC. A special mention and thanks to Jimmy Corrigan (Cat Brooks) and Ben Cox-Smith for allowing me to play before they did their sets.

Joanne Kelly / Strawberry Sundae Radio Show

Reading 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 7pm for two hours. More details can be found here.
