Downloads on This Week In London

I just wanted to post a huge thank you to all my listeners out there in Podcast Land. I've been looking fairly closely to my stats and realised that for the last few months I've been averaging 10,000 downloads a month!

When I first started doing This Week In London I always thought that it would be niche audience - how many people want to listen to me warbling on about London after all? It seems I was wrong! 10,000 downloads wrong...

So, thank you for your support. I really appreciate your continued participation in the show.

Don't forget you can send email, leave a comment or even ring me up and leave a message. I'll reply to everyone and if you do leave an audio comment I'll do my best to use it in the show.

I'm always looking for ideas for the show so don't be shy!

Did I say thanks? Thanks.

TWIL #33 - Docklands Light Railway

Greetings! In this show I interview two top guys from the Docklands Light Railway. I hope you enjoy it. It's my usual blend of interesting background information combined with my irreverant prattlings.

You can play the podcast by clicking the PuPu Player (no, really) up there at the top of the page. Alternatively you can listen to the show here:

I have one of the DLR Goody Bags here if anyone wants it enough. Best comment detailing why they should have it will get it.

Music is by
Twelfth Night - Sequences
Wes Brookes - Parka
Black Lab - Ghost In Your Mind

TWiL #32 - Buckingham Palace

Greetings one and all and welcome to This Week in London #32 - Buckingham Palace.

You can play the podcast by clicking the PuPu PLayer (no, really) up there at the top of the page. Alternatively you can listen to the show here:

This time I'm putting Buckingham Palace under the viewing glass. Interesting place and a builders dream. It's been built and rebuilt since the early part of the 18th Century with some humungous heavy lifting jobs done to it.

The picture at the very top is a great panoramic by Meichimite from FLickr under Creative Commons. The rather wet one is one I took when Flat Stan went on his trip round London in 2002. The lower one is of a Garden Party, courtesy of the CC-licensed image from Flickr by Mark Hillary. Thanks to them both for making it available under Creative Commons.

Music this time out is:

Black Lab with Ghost in your Mind - where you can buy the album Passion Leaves a Trace and See The Sun (strong recommendation for both these albums - awesome stuff )

Beyond7 with Smoke. You can buy the album at iTunes - click here
Thanks to Steven for the CD and a strong recommendation to go listen to the music.


DJ Earworm with Funky goes to Hollywood
Which I thought was just terrific and worth playing on the show even if it is "just" a mashup.

As always, your feedback is appreciated and all emails ARE read AND replied to by yours truly.
I hope you enjoy the show and look out for another show PDQ!
