what happened in December
you may also enjoy these audio-visual Gardening pleasures
This evening proved to be a real lo-fi treat as I secured
an exclusive session with songwriter, poet and historian
Jude Cowan, who performed several tunes for us.
I digged into my audio archives to come up with
some suitable tunes to mix around her beautiful songs
and so it was probably best to expect the unexpected.
A double treat for you tonight as one of my favourite
mixers, the semi-legendary Aminiroll sorted a present
for our ears which was to be just what we had all wanted!
There were no tears beneath the tree as I celebrated with a
small sherry and a few of my own seasonal offerings too.
He is the master of the decks who had something extra
special in store for us tonight (at least that what he told me!)
Mr. Pickles can be sometimes be found at the Big Chill Bar
in London and at other times on the airwaves of Purple Radio
but tonight he was be sitting in a comfy chair in my studio
chewin' a tasty Dub plate, alrite mate!.
This fine Scottish duo who were previous Gardening session
stars in 2008 released their new album Demonm Eowmeow
recently and I presented an exclusive mix recorded especially
for the show tonight. Featuring music from Fever Ray, Magazine
and Sarah Vaughn as well as their own tunes all live from 10pm.

what happened in November
I secured a great scoop for you tonight, an exclusive
mix by the chaps behing The Foggy Trip a new weekly
club night held in Northampton. They specialize in
Fuzz, Soul, Psych & Funk and this was an ideal night to
stay company with me to mess with your head for 2 hours.
Shoegazing is not a genre I am over familiar with, so it was
enlightening to me at least, to hear this mix put together
especially for the show by the curator of the Jangle blog.
Bands featured included Warlocks, Amusement Parks On Fire,
Clear Horizon, oh and did you remember to look down?
This evening I presented a fresh mix created by the prolific
beatmeister from Basingstoke who's new album Bohemian Groove
was released this month. He is no stranger to the show as this
was his 3rd mix for The Garden, his last one was in January
of this year and is still available to download His latest mix is also now available for your listening pleasure here
I mixed up a selection of fairly mellow cover versions
tonight as I had been secretly squirrelling away some
real treats especially for this special mix. From songs
by Donovan, The Carpenters and Steely Dan to Prince
and Elvis Presley, I hope you'll dig this chill mix.
This was my good old end of December, wow wasn't there a
lot of great music again this year mix of things I have digged
over the last 12 months kinda show. My Top 20 albums of 2011
might not be the ones you would have chosen and you'd probably
be disappointed if they were! But I will have played tracks off these
ones anyway and hopefully you were not disappointed if you'd not
heard them before. Roll on 2012 it's gonna be bloomin' marvellous!
