What’s Going On?

12 04 2012

Hi, I just want to say thank you to everyone who keeps dropping by the blog. I hope to get things back to normal soon but as you may know I’ve been snowed under with family issues of late.

Steve has been doing a brilliant job keeping things going and posting the shows on our Samurai page. CLICK HERE to go to our page.

Gold Show 120 ~ a classic rewound!

2 03 2012

This week is a re-run of a previous show, as Paul and I have been unable to record a new one, because Paul’s father is still in hospital and family needs come first.

We hope you all understand and hope you’ll enjoy listening to what was Show 36. This was our first foray into garden DJing, something a few other DJs looked down their noses at, or thought we were faking, but here’s the proof that Paul’s gazebo, in his garden, made for an excellent recording studio.

Don’t Panic!

13 02 2012


OK, this is a heads-up to all our friends …

Don’t panic, but nothing much is likely to happen here ’til March.
Hopefully you will still be able to keep up with us on our FaceBook page, but the blog probably remain quiet. Thursdays will still be new show days on Jazz Funk Soul Radio but there may not be Podcasts available for a couple of weeks.

So far this year everything’s been very full-on and now to complicate things even more Paul is taking a week in the sun.

Steve will be keeping things ticking over on FaceBook so please log in over there and keep him company. FIND GOLD HAMPSHIRE ON FACEBOOK PLEASE join the group and spread the word – thanks.
