Well, today's the day.
After two demos and 57 one and two hour programs, this is the final, regularly scheduled edition of The Big Beat’cast. I'm starting a new position next week; something had to give and the show was it. I’d like to thank Stephen & Harriet from DIY, Bruce & TK from Moheak for allowing me on your stations and of course, thank you for listening to and supporting the show.
Now, don't construe the end of TBB'cast as the death knell of TBB blog.
I'll continue hosting my weekly Amazing Radio show which, I've come to learn, some of you don't know is (and has always been) a completely separate program from TBB'cast. I also hope to update the blog a bit more frequently with new raves and discoveries rather than having it primarily act as a depository for the radio shows. As I said in the very first post on the blog two years ago: This’ll be my place, my outlet, which after all of these years, is all I really want: a place to do my thing. The blog will focus on music discovery, news, reviews, rants and raves. That's still the case. I'm also reserving the right to drop a periodic TBB "special" every so often, when the inspiration strikes.
All of my shows (TBB, Amazing) are linked via the Mixcloud widgets on the main menu. I'll post these last few TBB'casts as downloads soon but will be deleting my Soundcloud account in the next month so get 'em while you can.
As for the final show? It'll be exactly what you've come to expect. Hear it on DIY Radio later today (8p BST / 3p Eastern / Noon Pacific) or tomorrow at those same times on Moheak Radio. I hope you'll join me.
