Last Wednesday evening marked Bossarocker‘s first ukulele show for the Chorlton Arts Radio.
She did an excellent job gathering songs from various ukulele players in different styles of music, finding appropriate transitions between the tracks and not least of all, she even managed to get a spoken interview from Al from Uke Hunt. Despite what he is saying, I didn’t find his interview awkward at all.
Speaking of great transitions, she did ask me a few questions too and I was pleased to be introduced right after the song of the Eyjafjallajökull by Eliza Geirsdottir Newman, an Icelandic singer and ukulele player. Pronouncing the name of the volcano has become a favourite game with my children at home, generating plenty of laughs.
If you’d like a list of the tracks that were played during the show, check out Bossa‘s blog here.
Don’t miss the second episode of the ukulele show next Wednesday (26th of May) at 7pm (GMT) which will feature some classical ukulele. To listen, go to this link and click on the Listen online link on the page.
While we are on the subject of Chorlton, if you are in this area, Andrew Butler informed me in a comment that he was hosting a ukulele Extravaganza at the Lloyds hotel from 9:30 onwards.
The event will feature some of Manchester‘s best ukulele players :
Andrew ‘blind boy’ Butler
