The Stay-At-Home Special

Interesting times, no? It may not be much, but allow me to offer you the gift of music to at least help while away a couple of hours if the notion of another Netflix binge just isn’t doing it for you.

Songs on sickness, disease and yes, recovery are all on the agenda. From Aimee Mann to the Beastie Boys, Fifth Harmony to Frank Turner, there’s something for everyone. And that’s important as everyone seems to be at home now…

And here’s the full Spotify link should you just want the music (it doesn’t include the music behind my interstitial bits, though. I have to keep some things sacred…

WROBXMAS

In which we get all festive on your asses. Some of Rob’s favourites, some leftfield choices and even a couple of picks from the WROB Party Line! It doesn’t get any more Christmassy than this.

From Springsteen to Sinatra, Spinal Tap to Sigur Ros, we’ve got something for everyone this Yuletide. Grab yourself an eggnog and settle in.

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.
