Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.
Funny Little Man – Harrogate
I have been invited to record a session on the local BBC Station – York & North Yorkshire!
Whilst I missed the live broadcast – having burned out after a hard week at work – I was asleep by 7pm on a Saturday. However, Jericho Keys played my track Dub Horns on his show BBC Introducing – York & North Yorkshire. At the end of playing the track he invited me in to record a session!
Whilst it would be fun to go in and reconstruct making the track in realtime – it would not make good radio. I have emailed Jericho and the BBC to see what they make to me coming in and nattering away in my high pitched voice – I will post their reply below in the comments section. I have started a new Tag – called Me & The BBC - for this shenanigan – so keep clicking on it for updates.
I really only started to make reggae and dub for a laugh. I have a track record as an avant garde and experimental musician and I set myself the challenge of making a record that is not Noise – I seem to have done a good job!
Well, here is a recording of the radio. I am unaware of the law surrounding taping your own track off the wireless – sue me.
