The Cabinet of Curiosities

In which Rob opens up his cupboard full of the more esoteric items in his collection. Dolly Parton played at the wrong speed? Check. The jazziest anime theme of them all? Double-check. Mashups up the wazoo? BURBERRY MUFUHN CHECK.

Let’s have a root through Rob’s drawers, shall we?

Too Heavy For Halloween

For those of us that both love and hate this time of year…

Those for whom Halloween is not just a date, or an excuse to wear a spooky costume once a year and hit up strangers for free sweeties…

Those of us for whom Halloween is a state of mind, a way of being, a comforting chilly darkness…

This one goes out to all of us that are Too Heavy For Halloween.

 

The Graham Williams Takeover

Great to see the WROB community starting to make their mark and leaving me with less of the gruntwork in putting a kickass show together!

This time, old podcasting friend Graham Williams drops a cleverly themed set of tracks in, with a little help from the ladies in his life. With everything from the KLF to a male voice choir, expect the unexpected. This one gave me the warm fuzzies.

All aboard!

The Love Special

Oh, my darlings. This one is for you. Embrace it with all your hearts. Not sure how you do that, actually. Surely you need arms to embrace things.

ANYWAY. Music, poetry, ramblings and nonsense from Caversham’s answer to Whispering Bob Harris. Featuring Crowded House, Beyonce, Erasure and The Dickies.

Crazy love.

We’re Back! The Clive Ashenden Takeover

Yes, well, let’s not talk about the tumbleweed that has been blowing through the studio here in sunny Caversham for the last year and a bit. Rather, let us celebrate the fact that we have returned.

Further cause for celebration: a cracking set of tunes from our podcasting pal Clive Ashenden, who serves up an eclectic mix of soul, dance, prog, and artcore. This will enrich your lives. Let it in, feel the joy.

Hi, there. We are WROB. We’re all about love, unity, and music. Join us, whydoncha?

The Friday 13th Show


In this edition of the show, Rob talks about luck, coincidence, superstition and all those forces that lead us to think that we’re not really in charge of our own destinies. Featuring tracks from the usual eclectic range of artists, from the Stones to Jamie Woon, Beach Slang to Kenny Rogers.

Lucky you, it’s a treat for your ears this Friday the 13th!

(Foolish Rob also forgot to mention the Prince Far I track at 1:33:38. It’s his righteous version of Deck Of Cards. Preach dem!)

Show 4: The FrightFest Special!


It’s FrightFest weekend, so Rob goes the full horror with a playlist including tracks from The Misfits, PJ Harvey, DangerMouse featuring David Lynch (yes, that David Lynch) and two tracks from the master of electronic horror music, John Carpenter!
The lights are growing dim. Settle in and enjoy the ride…
