The Making Of....

I suddenly realised the other day that I haven't posted all of my more recent You Tube videos within this blog.

So, here is a follow up to my video about my appearence on the BBC in July of this year.

This video tells the story of how that tv appearence came to be and what happened during the making of that piece.

A Social Media Policy

Some months ago I wrote a blog post for the Pierless Music site which I run called ‘A Social Media Policy’. The idea was to give bands and musicians some guidance on the potentials pitfalls of their own use of social media, based on my own experiences.

That post was well received and I was recently asked to update the post for use on the Epik Music Videos website.

They have changed the title to ‘The 10 Commandments of Social Media’, even though there are actually 16 'Commandments'. But the title does have a nice ring to it doesn’t it?

Don't worry if you're not a musician, or in a band as I think you'll find that most, if not all, of the 'Commandments' can be used for an individual too.

Here's the post: A Social Media Policy

Let me know what you think.

Radio, Video and Local Music

I've been on the radio again. This time it was for Carnival FM where I was presenting a series of Local Music Shows.

Here's a new YouTube video about it all and some things that have come out of it all.

Hastings Pier Rises Again.

I recently wrote a blog post for the Pierless Music website that I help to run and I thought I'd share it with you here.

It's all about Hastings Pier, a favourite topic of mine and it contains some good news at last.

Here's a link to that post. Please let me know your own thoughts on this, even if you live away from Hastings itself.

Another Slice Of My 15 Minutes Is Up.

This is a recording of a report on BBC South East Today in which I appeared. It originally went out last Friday evening, 12th July.
It's all about the making of the video for David Bowie's song 'Ashes to Ashes', part of which was filmed near Hastings.

I shall be recording a video all about the experience in due course and explaining the lengths myself and the reporter went to to reach the video location!

As with all these things, most of what was recorded wasn't used in the final piece. I actually think this was the worst bit that I did.


Thanks to Paul for sorting out the video.
