hugging it out

they say it is better to be late than never. i’m not so sure. for example i’d prefer to never go to my own funeral than be late for it. but there you go. this is a playlist that has been in the draft folders for ages. last thursday (20th sept oh7), jazzrod, mittins and me, shananigans, went to the fleet studio and brought all our favorite music storage devices, including CDs, cassettes and records. and for two hours we played, danced and drank some fine beers. and then we drank some heinekens! and there was some very good hugging going on too. we even had a three way hug! i for one had never indulged in such an activity, but had read all about it on the tinternet and now know what all the hype is about. so, here you can listen and below is the belated playlist..

tee for one

it was a lonely cauldron this week; shenanigans stirring solo until quite weak. but there was a silver cloud on the horizon in the form of a great green hype machine tee-shirt, ordered ages ago from stalwarts the hype machine. when living in aotearoa it takes about three months for letters and spam to get here, cos not many ships pass by this way. but oh the joy is physical when such goodies arrive. it’s like christmas. and there was what proved to be a lovely hand written missive from the poster and packer in amoungst the parcel, something like: ‘dear shenanigans, thanks for the order. you rock. and we also hear great things about your radio show, keep up the good work and don’t let that mittins steal your thunder!‘ ahem.

my new tee

so to the show. yesterdays that is. many apols dear readers for the late registration (a ha!), and soarse postings in general but what with the multiple babies and the many public appearences mittins and i must make in this month makes it difficult to keep these pages so fresh and so clean. but we will soon return in fullness! in the meantime listen here for yesterdays show. despite being on me jack, it was a great show cos i loved the music and just love fleet! look below at the gem littered playlist:
