It’s quite cold outside. -19C with a brisk 11kt wind, so it feels like -29C.

Earliest music memories: listening to Radio Luxembourg on a small radio. Whiskey in the Jar by Thin Lizzy is the earliest song I recall loving. On TV I remember Killer Queen by Queen on ToTPs in UK.

First record I bought with my “own” money (it was saved pocket money) was A Day at The Races by Queen. I’d been bought singles (mostly by Slade) before that and got A Night at the Opera album for Christmas in 1975.

First gig: Hawkwind, with Ginger Baker guesting on drums. https://toot.wales/@HannahHowe/112467086221042576

What are your earliest musical memories, or the first records you bought?

My earliest musical memories are of listening to my grandparents’ records. They included:

45rpm Danny Williams - Moon River
78rpm Sheb Wooley - The Purple People Eater
33rpm Winifred Atwell - Double Seven: Seven Rags Seven Boogies

I also loved the record labels, particularly the HMV labels.

@HannahHowe It was like early pirate radio. The sound faded in and out. But it was rebellious so happy days 😊

I won £30 on the UK National Lottery. The time between seeing the email to say you’ve won a prize and logging into the website to see if you are a millionaire never gets old!

Still not a millionaire.

I don’t use Overcast due to it using its own URL shortener that takes you to the Overcast site when you share a podcast. Rather than a link to the original podcast source. Example:

Share from Downcast: https://shows.acast.com/nature/episodes/lizard-inspired-building-design-could-save-lives

Share from Overcast: https://overcast.fm/+7bvMDcw

For completeness, here is the same episode shared from Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/nature-podcast/id81934659?i=1000655686282

@stuart I hate that about Overcast. I want to link to original sources.

Hopefully Downcast will issue a fix soon. It’s my favourite podcast player. By a long way.

The podcast directory isn’t working in Downcast at present. No podcasts load in the category views and searches return zero results.

The directory is working in Apple Podcasts and Overcast.

TIL that The Now Show last episode was on the 19th April.

The stupid BBC four week delay on public podcast feeds to try to get people to use BBC Sounds meant I haven’t listened to any of the recent series.

If enough people also didn’t listen to a “topical news show” four weeks after its broadcast date then that might have fed into its cancellation.

Finally got round to reading Marina Hyde’s column about The Met Gala. It’s glorious 😊

“If you haven’t sat in mismatched pyjamas huffing toast while remarking what an unacceptable misstep Lana Del Rey’s mosquito net was, and how Chanel seems to be going tits up, then you have simply failed to capitalise on the digital banquet spread out for you.”

I’m going to reboot my weekly digest. It’ll basically be a link blog post of things that interested me in the previous week. With some commentary if appropriate.

I’m not sure where I’m going to host it yet as I want it to be available as an email newsletter, RSS, and on the web. Maybe ButtonDown or Hey World for the former, and a duplicate post in my Wordpress blog for the latter.

Here’s a previous one from 2021 on Hey World: https://world.hey.com/ianrobinson/ian-robinson-s-weekly-digest-14th-march-2021-d09dfa28
