The week ahead on AZ...

Greetings Zoners,
a little update for you on the week ahead on AZ, for 17th to 23rd August 2009.

As ever, you'll hear us on air Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, at 20.00 hours (UK time) each evening, via Radio Seagull - at
This week, Richard Bismarck kicks off proceedings on the Monday, then Barry De Foyle graces us with his latest themed opus on Tuesday, a 'Piano Special'. Don't miss it ! Our 'man from the Foyle' is just getting into his stride with his themed shows, so do give him a listen.
Back in his usual spot on Wednesdays, it's another brand new programme from Johnny Reece.
What's Johnny got for us this week ? 'Not telling you', he said. Ah, well.

The following week sees more newies up and coming, from our man in Copenhagen, the irrepressible and frankly outrageously tall Gil Legine, and the Derbyshire Bard, Mr. Simon G.

Looking further ahead, the 'Woodstock Special' to mark the Anniversary, is now in production, hosted by our very own Rich Phoenix.
All these, and more, will be in your ears soon.
We are hoping to have the Punklicious Zoe back at some point too, but oh, she's a busy girl.
Gigs, Books, you name it, she's there ! You'll see Zoe pictured above at one of her recent book signings. Got her book yet ? Why not ? Get it !
'Typical Girls ?', The Story Of The Slits, by Zoe Street Howe, is available now. Recommended !

As for other AZ programmes dotting around the globe, don't forget that the Radio Seagull shows Monday through Wednesday are repeated, Friday through Sunday respectively, at 02.00am too, particularly for our Stateside and Canadian friends, as that'll be evening time for them.
See, we think of you too !
Add to this, our shows are aired every weekend, by WCRV in Lake Ariel Pennsylvania, and Hesser College Radio in Manchester, New Hampshire. Thanks guys !

Possible chat, gossip, rumours and suchlike of 2 possible new Presenters hitting the Zone airwaves, come September, continue to float around.
If that comes to pass, we'll let you know. Be patient !

As ever, thanks to all of you for your support.

This weeks AZ...

Hi Zoneheads,
how is your summer ?
Blistering hot days interrupted by thundery rain here, but this is England, after all.
We wouldn't have it any other way.

Is it a case of 'all change' at AZ Towers HQ ? As September approaches, it does begin to look like AZ Towers will be making the 'official' move, from London to Norfolk.
Come to think of it, a great deal of the work is already being done there.
Lots of travel back and forth recently, taking much more time as it should, due to various train strikes, meaning stops in Norwich for several hours at a time. Nice city !

On to this week, and here are the Album Zone programmes being aired via Radio Seagull, as ever, Monday to Wednesday, at 8pm UK time (with repeats, respectively, on Friday to Sunday, 2am each time), via

Be there !

Monday, it's Simon G in the chair. Tuesday, it's our man in Copenhagen, Gil Legine.
Then, on Wednesday, it's a brand new programme from Johnny Reece.

Up and coming in the next few weeks, is a 'Woodstock Special' from Rich Phoenix, to mark the anniversary. A couple of weeks delay on that one, but it will be worth waiting for.
Barry de Foyle returns the following week too, with a 'Piano Special'.
Ah, vicious rumours abound too, of a new Presenter for AZ, in September.
Watch this space !

Have a great week everyone, and thanks for your support.

Johnny at AZ
