Preview Mode Links will not work in preview mode

It's been tricky to access all the shows in one place but at last, following some nudges from Clive (and a good few others), here's a wish come true.

This micro-site is the easiest place to listen to the entire SnC archive, all 429 shows.

Explore the back catalogue of shows using the Episodes button (top right). 

Full shownotes are published on the Suffolk 'n' Cool main site.

Ah, the romance of Wickham Market - roses and Asti Spumanti are sold out at the Co-op.

This weeks picture is of Albert Slade modelling a very fetching I listen, therefore I am - Suffolk 'n' Cool T shirt. Albert is exploring Second Life ( on my behalf. I do just wish he'd hitch his jeans up a bit - goodness knows where he got those boxers! More at the end of the show.

MySpace problems and changes
The number of listeners, artists and other contacts are growing and a MySpace with all of those groups mixed up is difficult to make sense of. Also, since I started the policy of putting the artists most recently featured on the show into the Top Friends category, and all other artists in the All Friends section lots of people have said how good it is to know that anyone on there is going to be worth a serious listen. What's more, it's an easy way to keep up with what's happening with personal favourite artists who may not have been on the show for some time.
The other thing that's happening is that quite a few listeners want to be friends with the show as do an increasing number of studios, venues, promoters, etc.

So what I've done is to create two more MySpace areas, one, the SnC Listeners Lounge ( ) is especially for err, listeners.

The another, the SnC Music Network, is a space where musicians and listeners can find a growing body of promoters, venues, studios, other podcasts, etc. I'll get that up in the next couple of days and link to it from the main SnC MySpace and website.

It will all be live in the next few days, so if you've recently asked to be a friend, please would you go to the relevant MySpace link and do it again, this time you'll get a much quicker response - promise! I'm really sorry if your request expired before I resolved this move. Penny, I think you were one who fell off the list. Sorry.

You might hate me but your boys disagree - Blondsai  (Maryland, USA)
Extremely addicting, looks to kill... influenced by everything from 60's garage, japanese rocknroll, 70's-80's punk, and of course, porn, kitsch, and trash films.. highly charged live show... champion whiskey drinkers. Sounds good too!

The Settler - Martin Ansell (UK)
Outstanding UK singer songwriter, whose songs have been covered by the likes of Sally Barker and The Poozies and who has toured Europe with Van Morrison, Chris Isaak, Tom Robinson and others, has just released a new solo acoustic album, June Said.
Born in Gillingham, Kent, raised on peanut butter and The Beatles, Martin played harmonica on the gravestones of St Mary's Church until a plastic guitar changed his life at the age of 8. "I fell in love with the acoustic guitar listening to Roy Harper, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen and all that happy stuff!"
In 1986 he was signed by Chris Blackwell to Island Records and his album The Englishman Abroad - produced by Rupert Hine, with guests Howard Jones, Phil Palmer (Dire Straits) and Trevor Morais (drummer with '60's legends The Peddlers and later in the '90's Underworld) - was first released.
New acoustic solo album June Said is available from CD Baby and for download from iTunes
