They call it maintenance

The new Studio chair is here...
Just thought I'd let that sink in, for a second. But - here's the thing. It never stops there, does it ? I wondered when our Scotsman would decide other things had to be changed, and sure enough, plans are afoot. What sounds like an easy task on paper, is certainly not in reality, as our leader has decided that the plinth that all the equipment sits on needs streamlined, reshaped, and most of all, moved to another location, albeit in the same room. Sounds easy ? Well... apart from having to dismantle and disconnect everything, do what is required and then put everything back together again, that's it. It could easily cut the most part of a week out of the ether.
But, looking around, he's right. It will be more manageable once the job is done. First, we need to get a little more upfront with some AZ Programmes, if we know the Studio may be down for a few days. Just in case.
To this weekend, and its the turn of Andy Miles to be in your ears, as is his want. That's tonight, Saturday, usual time and place, 21.00 hrs via Oh, and Sky 0195. I'm quoting UK time here.
Tomorrow, it's Johnny Reece in the chair (the old chair, not the new chair !) at 20.00 hours, same locations.
Here's the playlists !

Strange how some peoples opinions can change, with maybe a piece of music, a certain mood, or whatever.
I remember the previous weeks Reecey Soiree, and the buzz that was here in the Studio during and after the show was done. Everyone enjoyed it.
Fast forward one week. At the close of the last track, our Scotsman turns round and says 'you know, I wish I hadn't actually played any of those'. He wasn't happy !
A strange bunch, Radio Presenters. But I guess we wouldn't have it any other way.
Wishing you all a special weekend, and thanks, as ever, for your support.
I'll return on Tuesday/Wednesday with details of next weeks AZ Shows, via Radio Seagull.
