THE TRIP SESSION 87 WITH VINTAGE VINYL AT MILK, READING. PLAYLIST FOR THE SESSION ON JUNE 2nd.2012. MORE PLAYLISTS AT www.jimz.biz -click on jimz playlists/trip. NEXT SESSION RETURNS THE NIGHT TO ITS NORMAL LAST SATURDAY SLOT ON JUNE 30 th.
Well thanks to a combination of factors, like the bank holiday jubilee weekend and the weather, plus the fact that no bunting was up outside!, meant this was a quieter session than usual. It was fairly busy mid evening but quiet, attendance wise early, and late on. However I just got on with it, meaning that I got to play more of my selections rather than requests. The “plot” was to play a load of tunes bought at bootsales on May 20th, which filled the first hour and were then scattered about during the night. A late theme was to slip in a few versions of the tune “Summertime”, after the superb BBC4 show the night before.
Since the previous session a lot of things to report. Chris Gale asked me to guest on his lovely internet radio show on Reading4u, on 11th May, which I really enjoyed, and we made it a vinyl only session to suit this olde geezer. The show is called the Departure Lounge and airs every Friday from 10.00 to midnight. Playlists and podcasts can be heard via its Facebook page and on Mixcloud. As a result of this Chris would like to try a live broadcast of the trip from milk at one of my regular saturday sessions, so watch this space. I also played a few jazzical tunes between the amazing Jamie Howell bands sets here last month. It was fantastico to see some live jazz finally being played here. Also another night that is a little different Tracks and Grooves continues here on the last Thursday. Checkout Andrews amazing “fliers” for this vinyl only session. Then we get to Melodies and Memories, just started here on the last Sunday. Ralph who’s idea it is, kicked off the session playing his fave lp., with us all listening without chatting, all the way through. Your landlord Tim gets to do the session in June, and I amon in July.
Finally plans are being made to return last years REGGAETHON, to MILK, on JULY 21 st/JULY 22nd, with over 12 hours worth of tunes getting on. More details about this next month.
Thanks for taking the trouble to read this, and feel free to take a look at my website, which contains details and playlists of all the nights I am involved in/BCNU-Jim
