Bonsoir Mes Amis

Bonsoir !
Just how long is it since I have been around the hallowed ground of AZ Towers ?
Quite a while, I will admit, but I am back tonight, to tell you of what's new, old, blue, and borrowed. Or something.
I have been away, back, away, back again, and others in the AZ biosphere have had everything ranging from annual vacations to sneaky little French trips.
As soon as my back is turned, off they go !
I look forward, very much, to hear the travel tales of Mr Bismarck, expected soon.
As for Mr Reece, I am sure you may hear the odd Parisian tale on his new programme, which will burst into your ears next week, should you wish. Much post Parisian chat, I feel.
Great too, to have Simon G back with us, after a long absence. Simon's new programme will be airing via Radio Seagull, week after next, early November, although those lucky enough to be around the Lake Ariel region in Pennsylvania, can hear it this weekend.
Up and coming in forthcoming weeks too, a new opus from Rich Phoenix, and another solo gem from Zoe. Add to this, a new Barry de Foyle programme is due next week, too.
Whew, that's enough, don't you think ? No ?
Well, here is next weeks line-up then, via Radio Seagull, and as ever, it's 8pm UK time, via, from Monday, through Wednesday.
Expect your ears rocked out on Monday, with the help of Andy Miles.
On Tuesday, it's a repeat of the ever popular 'joint soiree' with Reecey and Zoe.
Wednesday comes, and it's the post Parisian Johnny Reece.
Now, if that doesn't keep you going, I am not sure what will !
I wish you all a great weekend, and thanks, as ever, for your support.

Sacre Bleu !

It's one of those lightning quick updates !, as the Eurostar is calling.
Up to me today, as the infamous Mr Lloyd is away until tomorrow. Off to Paris in about an hour, so Albums by Malcolm McLaren and films starring Audrey Tautou are already beginning to spring to mind... just a 48 hour trip, with a gig by the ultimately splendid Emiliana Torrini to attend, tomorrow evening.
On to the matter in hand !
A quick update on Album Zone via Radio Seagull shows for you this week, Monday to Wednesday inclusive, at 21.00 hours CET - that's 20.00 UK... just nip to, and listen in... tonight it's Andy Miles, Tuesday sees the return of Barry de Foyle, and on Wednesday evening it's a co-hosted affair, with myself and Zoe... be there !
These 3 Programmes above are repeated, respectively, Friday through Sunday, same place, 03.00 CET, that's 21.00 EST for all of you Stateside.
Hey I'll send you a postcard !

Late !

Hi Zoneheads,
here we are, back with a vengeance. Late with this update, I know, but here we are after a busy day here at AZ Towers.
All throaty fluey bugs have been quashed squashed and mangled (doesn't that conjur up pretty pictures eh ?) and we return to the business of putting things in your ears.
Not literally of course, unless that's what you perversely require.
AZ Towers has been busy this week, not only with Johnny Reece recording some choice cuts upfront due to his forthcoming visit to Paris looming large, but also Barry de Foyle's newie for October arriving within these hallowed walls, and, today, it was the turn of Reecey and Zoe, to record their 4th joint soiree opus.
I urge you not to miss this one, when it comes around in a week or so.
Worth noting too, that our friends at Radio Seagull are now broadcasting 24/7 via their website at, and they are now on MySpace too -
If you are a MySpacer (is that the phrase ?), then by all means add them to your friends list.
On to the week in hand, and as ever, Radio Seagull will air AZ 6 times this week - Monday through Wednesday at 21.00 CET, with Programmes, respectively, from Zoe, Gil Legine, and Johnny Reece. These are repeated Friday through Sunday, at 03.00 CET.
You will also be able to hear Johnny Reece around the globe on Monday, 21.00 UK or 22.00 CET, via the Sky Satellite (Channel 0195) and
It has been mentioned by a few listeners that the webstream via RTI doesn't work for everyone, so it is worth noting there is another way to access the RTI webstream, via - and then type 'Radio Tatras' in the search box, and up it'll come for you. Ok ?
Our continued thanks go to both WCRV, and Hesser College Radio in the USA, for their support of The Album Zone. Currently, WCRV air AZ twice per week, Fridays and Sundays at 18.00 EST to their local area at Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania, on 97.7 FM.
Hesser College Radio meanwhile, air us at 12.00 CET on Saturdays, via
We get around a bit, don't we ?
There will be more to come, although we'll let you know of any new outlets once everything has been confirmed, and the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed. And the kettle is on.
Have a great week everyone, and thanks, as ever, for your support.
