RatholeRadio 77 – 29th April 2012

rathole

The last regular show before the Rathole Roadshow event on May 11th. I played a wide selection of music as always, and I even managed to squeeze in a live acoustic track. Lots of chilled out tunes this time for some reason, so put your feet up and enjoy.

rathole

Back once again it’s the incredible, Rathole. This time we have guests too as I interviewed Sonny &Colin from The Corinthians in a local pub. It was chaotic but amazing. I hope you enjoy it. There’s also a selection of eclectic tunes to keep you entertained.

Rathole Roadshow 2012

Rathole RadioTonight it's the Rathole Roadshow @leafteashop and it will be one of the most engaging performances in Liverpool for a long time. Not only is it FREE but there is going to be enough technology in the room to sink a small battleship.  I was asked earlier on Twitter what I meant by saying it was going to enage an online audience so I'll go into those details now.  
The whole gig is going to be Live Streamed across the internet, the video will be streamed using Ustream and the audio will also be streamed, but that's not the bit that makes it exciting for me. What makes it truly engaging is that you can respond to the performances as you hear them via twitter and via the IRC or Internet Chat Room - nothing new there either really. But if you connect the twiiter stream to a couple of little gadgets one called @bubblino and the other simply called Audiencebot then this is something else, @bubblino will blow bubbles everytime he reads the hashtag #RR2012 in the Twitter Streeam and then the Audiencebot will bang his drum adding to the general applause giving the band direct feedback about how their performance is from the online audience. NOW THAT'S ENGAGEMENT FOR YOU
Over the forthcoming weeks in Liverpool there are loads of gigs laid on for Sound City and even a Conference of some sort but the one thing we won't see is a live video stream and the opportunity to give direct feedback. 

You can read the press release below about Rathole Radio.

Design Initiative closes after 20 years

Design Show LiverpoolIt didn't come as news but Design Initiative have closed after 20 years of operation, all the staff left the Liverpool office some time ago and now it is Manchester's turn as the organisation closes completely.  Design Initive started in Liverpool and had some real success, and was a great resource for artists, designers and commissioners. At one point you couldn't start in business as a creative in Liveprool without first visiting LDI, they had access to information which would help you set up and survive that important first year of trading, but not only did it provide advice and guidance then came the workshops and exhibitions, some which drew the eyes of the national media to Liverpool. I remember well in the early years of LDI the BBC Design Awards exhibtion held at the now old but brand new at the time Alham Robarts Learning Resource Centre. Whatever became of Muriel Gray? 

It is hard to say what the first signs of the decline of Design Initiative were but I think they may have over reached when they tried to run activities across the whole of the North West plus afford the rent of two offices in Manchester and Liverpool, growing to fast without consolidating their foundations. However, in recent years it appeared to have a rennaisance with the annual Liverpool Design Festival but alas underneath it all it was not possible for them to afford two offices and at the end it had lost it's way, it's voice in the industry, in fact it had lost it's initiative.   Goodbye LDI I loved you so.
