Planet Rock saved!!



Hi all
Well great news eh?
We all went and had a drink with Malcolm the new owner on Tuesday, and he seems a jolly good sort, who has bought the sta­tion for all the right rea­sons.
I’m glad a couple of you noticed my prog mus­ings omis­sion last week, which I will try and do in the next show..It’s not all that though..
Also re the Gilmour Glastonbury story, I was con­tacted by David’s man­age­ment a few weeks ago and asked about my avail­ability for that weekend, when as luck would have it, I will actu­ally be per­forming my standup at…Glastonbury!!
I think the fact that it was such a late request is why it didn’t come off as all the slots had been filled, nothing more sin­ister…

    Very good news Guy!
    Your radio show is coming along nicely.
    You can give it that proper title now 😉

    Glastonbury? New mate­rial or more from ‘My Bass’?

    What are you doing next Sunday (15th) at 7pm? 😉

  2. Thomas Robinson - June 6, 2008 1:43 PM

    Nice ques­tion Nate. I did email Guy during his show about whether he would be there, playing or oth­ere­wise but he didn’t read it out. Maybe we’ll get an extra sur­prise?

    So the glas­ton­bury rumours weren’t total rub­bish then? Which stage are you playing on because i went onto the glas­ton­bury line up web­site and i couldn’t find you on it.

  3. Phoenix - June 6, 2008 6:27 PM

    Excellent news re: Planet Rock. And having a gig at Glastonbury. 🙂

  4. Caroline - June 9, 2008 5:30 PM

    Yay about Planet Rock!! I was get­ting to the point where I was not too wor­ried about the future, not only gut feeling I had/​optimist I tend to be and all, but also that I found it inter­esting that the PR web­site remained normal when it had been announced that PR had been sold.

    Great show as always yesterday…I have to con­fess that I ended up recording it, and lis­tened to it last night. I had com­pany over this weekend, and was quite worn out when they left yes­terday afternoon…and there­fore couldn’t help but get in some much needed nap/​meditation time.

    Can’t help but note that I really enjoyed the fact that you played Cream’s “White Room” for the first time ever on the show. Not only is that my most favorite song by them (IF I had to choose), but also hap­pens to be the closest thing to the very first com­plete bassline I’m learning right now. 🙂

    Hey Guy.

    Since they moved your show to Sunday nights — Sunday after­noons for us Yanks on the East Cost — it’s been waaay easier to catch your show live — instead of under “Listen Again”.

    On this side of the Atlantic we’re happy not only to be able to access your show during our off-​​time, we’re also happy that Planet Rock has a new owner… and a the promise of a “hap­pily ever after”.

    Keep up the good work Guy; we’re still waiting for you to come to this side of the Atlantic armed with your book, your bass, and your wit.

    Ed

    Very good news about Planet Rock.

  7. Nate - June 10, 2008 9:54 AM

    Have you seen ‘Band’ the appli­ca­tion that is due to be released on the iPhone next month?
    See a demo of it at 39:40 into the video of Apple’s WWDC Keynote which you can find here:
    http://​www​.apple​.com/​q​u​i​c​k​t​i​m​e​/​q​t​v​/​w​w​d​c08

    Interesting bass line they use… can’t quite place it… You may know it? 😉

    Is anyone else having prob­lems with the Planet Rock listen again fea­ture? I can’t listen sunday’s show, when i click play, nothing hap­pens!

  9. Karen - June 11, 2008 12:11 AM

    Hi Thomas,

    Yes, I am having same issue.

    I have a con­tact name at Planet Rock, I have emailed to ask about it.

  13. RolFloyd - June 15, 2008 2:18 AM

    i was reading your little bio in Wikipedia and a fact i just read there left me cold. I am from Mexico, 30 years and here we used to have a group of three girls how sang in the mid-80´s called FLANS. The thing is that in wikipedia says that you played on an album with them in 1987 as a Session Bassist. Well, i still cant believe that fact, after playing since 1988 with the biggest Band of All and with the best guitar player since…ever. (that would be Pink Floyd). Have you been in Mexico? well, stupid ques­tion hence you were here in the DB tour in 1994. I think you are a hell of a bass player, and you seem to be a nice guy, Guy.

    if PF ever reunited again, and you tour with them, ihope you come to mexico a meet you in person. i will send you by mail a scanned image of an ALL AREA ACCESS pass of the DB tour when you came here in 94.

    See ya…
