Toad on Fresh Air – 1st March 2010
So, finally some more sessions happening – this week we have Edinburgh’s most tippediest new band The Last Battle popping in. There are something like seven of them, I think, so I hope they’ve either limited their numbers for this evening or I suddenly develop into a technical genius, because recording seven musicians with two microphones might prove to be somewhat tricky.
Ruth and I are still trying to think up a suitably hybrid name for the show. Song, by Toad is basically my thing, and calling the show that rather underplays her role in it, so we thought we’d try and find another name if we could.
Last week’s suggestions included the Princess and the Toad and the current favourite: Toad on a Hot Tin Ruth. Any further suggestions will be most welcome – please just pop ’em in the comments below.
Live on Air 8pm-9.30pm – Listen live here.
