SONIC TALK 095 - Olympics Edition!
Well sorta, my attempt to get the panel to enthuse about the iminent 2008 Bejing Games wasn't a runaway success, but I soldiered on. Suffice to say, Giorgio Moroder features more than you would think...
So, joining me this week are my friends from the other side of the pond, PJ Tracy - Minneapolian studio owner and all round top chap, as well as the glob-trotting Rich Hilton who's back from a stint touring in Europe with Chic, and who I had the pleasure of seeing at Womad a couple of weeks ago. On this side of the Atlantic I have Dave Spiers - from GFORCE Software (makers of fine musical instruments) and also Mark Tinley who scrambled out from under a bush to make it on time for this weeks show (I'm not kidding).
As well as the Olympic theme and singers and composers of Olympic theme songs, we linger in the backstage area to discuss band riders and unreasonable requests, a quick announcement for the B52's remix competition winner, GigaStudio to be no more, the enigmatic Studio Electronics Omega Orion - to Nelly Hooper and then 6 degrees of separation just about finishes us off.
