We Love You!

Just noticed that this week's 'listen when you like' stream-able version of the show, which was only published just over 24 hours ago, has already hit 102 listeners at the time of writing. This is a new first day record for the streamed version, and is very exciting and encouraging for us! In case you want to hear what the fuss is about and bump the numbers up still further, you can hear it here: http://www.mixcloud.com/therealdavemilligan/

It seems to me we live in an age of some of the very best music that has ever been made, but there's so much noise in people's lives now that few of us know about it. That's what the show's about. It's a mission. We really are fanatical about the acts we play. As fanatical as we were as record buying teenagers back in "the glory days of the music biz" (when a lot of classic music was made, but also a lot of pap and filler, let us not forget).

For example: In the last few days the new demos from Love Of The Brave arrived (hear them on the show in the coming weeks), and I've just been sent an album by The Long Run. Their new CD is literally jaw dropping! It's like nothing I've ever heard in my long and varied musical life, but has elements of Kings Of Leon, The Small Faces, Jethro Tull, Cardiacs and some of the young telecaster wielding Libertines-inspired bands, all recorded on a vintage tape based studio under the best pub in Southend, The Railway Hotel.

It's made me go back and look at my own efforts with The Penguin Party and wonder how I can have that effect on people. This is both frustrating and inspiring at the same time, as some of the very best music ought to be.

We're all LIFERS Round At Milligan's. Jo and I, and the bands we play. We couldn't stop if we wanted to. The alternative is to dull to contemplate.

Keep the heid, as my Scottish mate Derek is fond of saying....

If you're one of the acts we play or one of the increasing number who listen to the show, we bloody LOVE you.

 

Big Love

 

Dave Milligan

Wotcha Scrubbers!

It's been a good month for Round At Milligan's and all our lovely acts:
As a result of our advertising campain and our syndication to Q Star Radio (as well as Scrub Radio of course) we've doubled our number of Facebook likes at www.facebook.com/roundatmilligans including a great number from mainland Europe, and our 'reach' at the start of the month was over 50,000, with listener figures for the live show increasing every week now that the connection to the broadcast chain has improved so much. We're also sustaining a good regular listenership to the archived 'listen again' version of the show at http://www.mixcloud.com/therealdavemilligan/

Jo and I continue to find astonishingly great music both on the web and at small festivals and gigs, and it is an honour to bring it to you.

We've had some lovely messages of support from listeners and bands over the last few weeks, telling us how much they've loved certain bands and songs, and telling us to keep it up. These messages are what it'a all about: We don't get paid, we do it 'cos we love great independent music and the honesty that comes with it.

Thanks for tuning in,

Tell your friends!

Big Love

Dave Milligan (& JosieJo)
