I ended up this year doing 3 “penpal” audio reports for Amazing Radio on Ibiza’s live music scene. It came out of the blue but since I love live music and I thought I could do something positive for Ibiza with it I thought – er yeah ok – I had no idea what on earth I was going to do…

If you follow my twitter feed you’ll know who Amazing Radio are by now – if not ask me on twitter but Amazing Radio is first thing i turn on in morning and last thing off…

It covers a complete spectrum of music and you never know what you’ll hear next – there’s no old catalog stuff, its only new music.

I did three segments and are exactly how they were aired and my personal view.

1st was a brief recap of ibiza music history & whats in store for 2012.

2nd was spur of the moment idea to i/view Alt-J at their gig at Ibiza Rocks – (double bubble win if I could do it as that was one gig I was looking forward to). I needn’t have worried as they were top blokes and great to talk to.

3rd was again another surprise and i got the email while I was at Henrys birthday get-together so I thought 2012 roundup, interview Henry and do it all in his studio using the state of the art stuff… be rude not to!

The 2nd. Interview with Alt-J at Ibiza Rocks before they supported Bloc Party back on 5th September 2012:

3rd is the Summer round up & quick chat with good friend Henry from Sonic Vista Studios:

There is the inevitable focus on all the usual suspects every summer and so I leave it to the others to cover that but I can honestly say this is the best year for live music since I’ve been here.

Been asked to do some more reports over the winter…

Thanks to Bethan & Dani for encouraging me.
