Weekend Playlists !

Well, Zoneheads, here we are again.
Some of us have been visiting seaside towns, taking naps on the beach and suchlike, whilst the rest of us are working away. Lucky for some !
Oh, and just for a little change, I thought I would give you a rest from mugshots of various presenters, and risk the wrath of Mrs Lloyd by making her the absolute star of the show on the Official AZ Blog this time. Hey look, it's an honour !!!
On to this weekend, and Saturday, sees Rich Phoenix return to the AZ airwaves after too long an absence, followed on Sunday, by Johnny Reece in his usual slot.
Meanwhile, we do hope for some revenue from our new T-shirts, as the time for an upgrade of major parts of software, re the Main Studio PC, is nigh. We'll be getting to work on all of that, in the next few weeks.

Blubber on guard again, and Weekend Playlists

Bonsoir Mes Ami, Hello Zoneheads, Lords, Ladies, and Gentlemen...
A weekend away for most of us, so Playlists, Blogs, Bulletins, all out and about early for you this time.
Even the Pod has been updated in advance !
This coming weekend sees (well, 'hears') the return of the dulcit tones of our one and only Englishman turned Viking, Mr Gil Legine, to the airwaves. Now esconced in Copenhagen, no less - but still Zoning, we are very happy to say. The Gilster is on air, at 21.00 hours, on Saturday evening, (UK time).
Got the net ? Got broadband ? Then anywhere you are in the world - you can tune in.
Sunday evening, as you will know, is the Scotsmans regular spot.
Johnny Reece takes to the airwaves on Sunday evening, 20.00 hours UK time, again, worldwide, via RTI, address as before -
Those with Sky Satellite across Europe, can also tune in to both Saturday and Sunday shows, simply by tuning to Sky Channel 0195.
Usually, weekend Programmes from AZ are transferred to our Pod once they have already been aired around the world via RTI - not this time - they are there for you already !
Pod address at the top of this page, in case you want to tune in before the 'official' airings occur. We put them up there early, as we are leaving Blubber the Wonder Goldfish in charge again here at AZ Towers this weekend. Let's just hope he gets up to no mischief.
Thanks to those of you who have taken an interest in our official Album Zone Merchandise. Over the next few weeks, you will hear the odd Ad Spot dedicated to this, in our programming. A quick look back at our previous Blog, or, on the pictures behind our MySpace profile ( and you can have a sneak peak at the new T-Shirts on offer. We may even alter the design a little, to include our MySpace web address too, below the current AZ Logo. Oh, to be an artist ! But, if you want to know more, just mail us at, and we can furnish you with any details, ok ?

April / May 2007 Programme Schedules

Hello and Easter Greetings to the Zone fraternity !
Just for a change I thought I would crawl out and show myself, and bring you up to date on a few things.
Easter has been fun. A crazy mixture of chocolate and hyperactive children running around, then again couldn't that be any old weekend ? Poor Mrs Lloyd, putting up with all that, and then off I go again to 'those Zone people' as she calls us. 'Keeps me off the streets', as I always say. Our youngest, Milly, thought that just one easter egg wasn't quite enough. We put her right. She wasn't happy, but these things have to be done, right ?
Seb was more diplomatic, as he is the eldest and feels some moral responsibility (strange, as he is only 8).
So off I went, taking the short trip to AZ Towers, to work out the advance Programme Schedules, and to ensure the file transfers (happening Saturday, Sunday and Monday) between our main Studio PC and those in Poprad (RTI) and Harlingen (Radio Seagull/Waddenzee) were going smoothly - which they were.
Schedules abound ! They are all posted for you below. All times quoted, are in UK (London) time.

More to follow of course, as we will have more brand new programmes in May, from Cupcake, and Richard Bismarck. We like to be able to keep you up to date, and plan upfront.
To the Pod, and this will be updated over the Easter Weekend.
On Pod 1 (URL listed at the top of this page), we have brand new programmes from Johnny Reece, Pixie, and Andy Miles, which sit alongside our most recent shows from Richard Bismarck, and Gil Legine.
Check them out !
All that remains is to say thanks, as ever, for your support - we would not be here, without our listeners.

Happy Easter To All !...

Oohh yes... give me that chocolate egg, if you please...
How are you, Zoneheads ?
Putting the Easter Holiday to good use, I do hope. For most, it's 4 days off, and whilst some of you visit relatives, or have jetted away for a sneaky weekend in foreign climes, don't forget us lot, here at AZ Towers.
Working out Schedules, updating, uploading, recording editing... and chomping chocolate eggs.
Hey, we're allowed !
We know you're busy - won't keep you, just to quickly tell you of the AZ Programmes this weekend, if you please, which consist of Barry De Foyle on Saturday evening, 21.00hrs, via RTI, and Johnny Reece at 20.00hrs, also RTI. For both, it's UK time, the URL is Oh, and Sky 0195 too, if you have that service - so many Europeans do nowadays, so we hear.
And here's an extra for you, worth remembering, this - if at any point there is a little technical hitch and you may not be receiving something, an excellent back-up is, a service which monitors Radio Stations from all over the world, and re-broadcasts them. Just type in their searchbox for 'Radio Tatrus International' (that's RTI, folks !) and you should find it. Either that, or Slovakia, and you'll get there.
Worth knowing !
Ok, as many are away, and may not see this particular update, we're going to hold on the rest of the April 2007 Schedules, until our next update.
Meanwhile, here's the playlists for this weekend, and we wish you a lovely Easter.
