    Hi Ashwyn
    Good to see you have got the new site up and running.
    Will you be having a page where venues can advertise their gigs in the same way as you did on the old site?
    Have a good Christmas
    Paul

    MARK BUTCHER BAND

    Just to say this gig featuring Mark Butcher is hopefully the first of a regular monthly ‘blues’ nights at Crawley Football Club, Sussex, so any help, advice or suggestions regarding publicity would be much appreciated. As ever, it’s hardly a money making exercise, merely an attempt to add to the circuit for everyones benefit!

Thanks for all the many years of recognizing and spinning voodoohead productions artists Ashwyn, and also for assisting me in pitching new music through your excellent program.

    Hi Ashwyn
    Love the new site and the radio shows. There’s not enough hours in the day to listen to what I want to listen to. I notice Ian Perkins asked about blues venues in the Colchester area. The Bull is a good venue and I believe the fabulous Joel Fisk has a jam night there.

    • admin says:

      Thanks Mike!
      Believe me, even in retirement theer are never enough hours!
      Thanks for the details of the Bull

  17. Henry Morgan says:

    Hi Ashwny,
    Really enjoy your shows thanks but the audio quality on the podomatic listen again is really poor. The signal seems to fade. I realise bandwith costs but I find it too poor to listen to at times.
    Thanks.
    Henry.

    • admin says:

      Hi Henry,
      Thank you for your kind comments.
      I am sorry that you are having quality problems listening via PodOmatic. I am not sure what to suggest.
      Certainly I do not think it is a bandwicth problem as I have bought a package which provides me with plenty.
      I am listening to the latest show on PodOmatic at present with no problems.
      I also have many listeners who tune in via i-Tunes which uses the PodOmatic feed and none of them are experiencing problems as far as I am aware.
      So I can only apologise and suggest that you might like to try listening via i-tunes as an alternative.
      Thanks for getting in touch and I hope you keep enjoying the shows.
      Ashwyn

  18. Mike Donkers says:

    Hi Aschwyn,

    Thanks sooooooooooo much for playing He’s Gonna Step On You Again last night on your radio show. Kudos to you for recognizing that we’re not blues purists and therefore have no qualms about adding a blues touch to an old John Kongos tune from 1971. Howzabout a review of our album on your website?

    Thanks,

    Mike, singer/guitarist/frontman/songwriter for Mike & the Mellotones

    Hello from Canada Ashwyn!

    Just wanted to send out my thanks for playing a track from my new record “Kiss the City” on Wednesday. There were loads of people in Canada listening and everyone that I’ve spoken to enjoyed the show in it’s entirety. Knowing that it’s “sitting on the edge of the blues spectrum”, I really appreciate that you went on that edge. Looking forward to tuning in again..

  21. Martin Park says:

    Hi Ashwyn, just thought I’d let you know that we are still running our monthly blues session (after all these years!) here in Southminster. Can’t see a gig guide on the site at the moment, but perhaps I’m just looking in the wrong place!
    We have John Crampton playing here tomorrow night,assuming he can get to us through the snow, whom I first heard at that excellent blues festival you ran at Hutton all those years ago.
    Please let me know if there is a facility for posting forthcoming gigs on your site.
    Regards, Martin, Station Arms Southminster.

  22. Hey…I’d love for you guys to check out my book….over 100 photos I took between 1969 and 1983 of Muddy, Wolf, Hooker, Thorogood, the Stones, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny Winter, Big Walter, Freddie King, Taj Mahal, Koko Taylor and more in the years when I was writing my Grammy winning music with Muddy Waters. Fun tales and the website has links to cool music and vid so turn up your speakers.
    Thanks and keep on Rockin’. Also, check the In the Belly of the Blues FB page.
