    Are the shows live or are you pre recording them?

  2. Paul Sexton - July 24, 2007 7:30 PM

    Never a good ques­tion that…insulting in a funny way

  3. Paul Sexton - July 25, 2007 8:18 AM

    Could’ve worded that better!!:-) ahhh the Radio Show!

  4. Nate - July 25, 2007 7:29 PM

    Nah… I’m not talking about cer­tain other bass players 😉

  5. Nate - July 25, 2007 7:40 PM

    Saturday’s show is listed at starting at 8pm

  6. Guy Pratt - July 25, 2007 9:10 PM

    These 2 are pre records as I’m doing my show in Dublin, then Faro with Mr Ferry..
    Next batch will be live. Make sure you eamil the sta­tion and tell them how fab I am so I can get a reg­ular show (And choose all my own records, there’s some right stinkers they’ve picked for me..)

  7. Paul Sexton - July 25, 2007 11:04 PM

    Guy,
    Are you doing any shows in the North?
    Cheers
    Paul

  8. Guy Pratt - July 26, 2007 1:37 AM

    Not at the moment I’m afraid..

  9. Zoe - July 26, 2007 3:53 PM

  10. Spider - July 26, 2007 7:22 PM

    Hi all!

    Great! I hope there’s a web­site where I can listen to it… Thanks for the infor­ma­tion Mr Pratt!

    Cheers

  12. Nate - July 27, 2007 12:52 AM

    Damn I was hoping that there would be no playlist and you could play what you liked. I hope you got to choose some tracks and that you were allowed to tell some of your sto­ries from your fine book that I fin­ished just last night 🙂

  13. Phoenix - July 27, 2007 5:10 AM

    Might as well ask the next obvious ques­tion… the web­site for the US the­atres showing the 2nd of David’s two broad­cast thin­gies actu­ally says you’ll be present ‘on stage’ at the 15 September event (in all-​​caps, no less).

    True/​untrue/​publicity hyper­bole?

    Cheers,
    Nix.

  14. Heather and Phil - July 27, 2007 9:43 AM

    Just to wish you well for your D J ing stint. If the records are that bad do what other DJ’s do and talk over them. I’m sure any­thing you have to say will be far more enter­taining unless you’ve man­aged to smuggle in a couple of tracks by Messrs Gilmour or Ferry.…Best wishes from Phil and Heather

  15. Daniel Werwolf - July 27, 2007 3:41 PM

    I wiash i can listen it:)

  16. Kimberley Garcka - July 27, 2007 5:11 PM

    Hi Guy,

    This is Emma , Kim’s daughter she bought me and my brother dillon tickets to come and see you in dublin on Saturday, she said you might be up for meeting us maybe before or after show. Mum cant make it but you can tell us hilar­ious sto­ries of what mum was like as a kid! Its been many years since she saw you!

    Email me if you get this emspinkerton@​hotmail.​com or call me 07909812442

    All the best

    Emma x

  17. Linda - July 27, 2007 9:37 PM

    o nice oine i get to hear what you sound like ! have a good time on the air i look for­ward to hearing what you got to say !
    guy you are playing dublin , my home town sat­urday as in tom­rrow ? someone should be shot for not making the date known , then again i am not someone who reads a news­paper so maybe i missed it . i come here on and off and i could have sworn there was no men­tion of it on the tour dates sec­tion of the site . i would have ran for a ticket had there been . i so want to see my bass and other ani­mals !
    peace
    Linda

    p.s one of my favroutie singers fish had a planet rock show a while back . for anyone who wants to hear guy go to your search engine look up planet rock radio . you will find the web site there . here is a little tip you need a post code but you can use the post­code of the address on the web site , though you did’nt get that infor­ma­tion from me !

  18. Linda - July 27, 2007 10:01 PM

    after all the brouhaha i got a ticket for your show tommrow . see you then !

  19. Thomas - July 28, 2007 3:33 AM

    Well Guy are you a little ner­vous about doing the radio show this weekend. Thomas

    PS There is a lot of us in the states that will be lis­tening and enjoying your show. We know that you’ll do a great job…

  20. Phoenix - July 28, 2007 3:47 AM

    From one DJ to another, good luck, mate! I’ll be at work when you’re on the air, but I’m sure it’ll be good.

    Nix.

    PS (since everyone else is doing them too!): Heya, Linda! 🙂

  21. Chris - July 28, 2007 9:56 AM

    Will tune in to hear you Guy, looking for­ward to a great show. Maybe you can inluce a bit of your comedy show in to the radio pro­grame?

    anyway any­chance of doing any East Europe Dates?(I know chances are below the sea level but High Hopes)

  22. Pedro - July 28, 2007 5:26 PM

    Hi Guy,

    Welcome to Portugal!

    I am gonna try to go to your show tomorrow. Is there anyway we can meet at some point?

    Cheers,

    Pedro

  23. Linda - July 28, 2007 5:50 PM

    hey nix hows it going woman . long time no chat i hope all is well . busy here . the dublin home brew buyers are thirsty !

    guess what it is raining in dublin . as far as i can work out guy is per­forming in a mar­quee . i hope the rain stops .

    i was men­tioning to the fea­tures editor of david gilmour’s web site that i am going to see you tonight guy and he gave me a mes­sage to tell you . if i get a chance to get my book signed i will pass it on to you , if not i can post it here tom­rrow 🙂

    one last com­ment: sorry about the temper tan­turm last night . i did’nt think i’d be able to get a ticket for the show tonight ! thanks be to god ( if he she or it exists ) , my fathers credit card ( i don’t have one of my own you see !) and tick­et­master i did .

    peace
    Linda

  24. Phoenix - July 28, 2007 9:35 PM

    It goes very well, Linda. Life is good! Hey, I’m coming to Ireland in September for a couple of days and can use some sug­ges­tions for places to go. Click on my name to get to my site and con­tact link, so as not to spam Guy’s blog.

    Nix.

  25. Linda - July 29, 2007 1:31 AM

    i sent a mes­sage to your my space page nix i need a little help in adding you to my friend list .

    guy thanks for a brillint night out . boy o boy do you per­from with energy . you were so funny too . i hope you can find a home for the cig­garettes i gave you , i was not sure if you still smoke or not but i would imagine you can find someone to take them !

    it was great to talk to you and thanks for giving up a chance to take a little break in the brian ferry tour iin s hot cli­mate to come and talk to us all in damp dublin 🙂

    i will listen to your radio show tom­rrow and let you know what i think . be pre­pared for an influx of gilmourites telling you what they think !
    cheers
    Linda

  26. Phoenix - July 29, 2007 2:36 AM

    I rather liked the show, although I think it was fairly obvious which songs you picked and which the sta­tion picked. 😉 In terms of sound and smooth­ness (believe me, there are some people on the radio who ought not to be, they don’t have what I call a ‘radio voice’), you sounded per­fectly fine to me. It’s always good to hear the other guys in the studio cracking up about some­thing funny the DJ says.

    A nice groovy way to spend some time at work. And tomorrow, I can listen without any goofy cus­tomers inter­rupting me, woohoo!

    Hopefully, they’ll be sen­sible and give you a reg­ular show, cos ‘didn’t he do well’?

    Cheers,
    Nix.

  27. Paul Sexton - July 29, 2007 8:17 PM

    Guy,

    Look’s like we might get to Edinburgh for a show, any chance of you signing my book ?
    Paul

  28. Brian - July 30, 2007 3:08 PM

    Hey Guy,
    Just thought I’d write to thank you for the great show on Saturday in Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens. The show was excel­lent and really refreshing — a nice change from the usual gigs! Hopefully you’ll return to do it again some­time! Lisa (my wife) and I were delighted you could take the time after­wards to chat to the fans and do a few sign­ings and photos.

    Pity about that bloody guitar amp!!

    See you at Leicester Square!!

    PS. Love the book design! My favourite bit is the silver foil on the spine of the hard cover. Also, if you want some gra­tu­itous adver­tising over here, just drop me an email — I’m a graphic designer with 11 years expe­ri­ence 🙂

  29. pedro - July 31, 2007 10:20 PM

    Guy,

    It was a plea­sure to met you and chat with you.
    Thank you for every­thing!

    Besides playing very well, you are really a nice and friendly person as you seem to be on stage.

    Now you have a friend in Portugal!

    Cheers,

    Pedro

  30. frank p - August 1, 2007 6:26 PM

    Hi Guy. Just fin­ished your new book today. What a wild card you were then and for­tu­nate. Good sto­ries along with the David and Floyd stuff. Jimmy was spe­cial. I didn’t get the meaning about Winona though, dufus that I am. Take care and be well.

  31. Guy Pratt - August 1, 2007 9:55 PM

    In adverts for used cars in eng­land they often say “one careful owner” the joke being her name sounds like ‘One owner”…

  32. Niall Kavanagh - August 2, 2007 11:44 AM

    Hi Guy,
    Thanks for the great show in Dublin last sat. We really enjoyed it, a really inter­esting and dif­ferent show. We espe­cially loved it when you played the bass. I think most of the audi­ence did too. People were just waiting for you to take the instru­ment in your hands and show how good you are. Please add more of this, we don’t mind good musos showing off! Of course, the sto­ries were great too.
    I think the crowd would have been bigger if the show had been pub­li­cised more. A show like that couldn’t fail to go down well in a music loving city like Dublin! As I men­tioned after the show I think you should come back and play a nice the­atre like the Olympia in the city centre. It would be very pop­ular if the word got out there and with the right pub­licity.
    I bought your book on Sunday and I’m slap bang in the middle of it at the moment.….can’t put it down. (By the way, have you dis­cov­ered why the Moscow audi­ence always cheered during the film clip for Us and Them?). A very enjoy­able read, con­grats on it.

    Hope to see you back here soon,
    Regards,
    Niall

  33. Paul Sexton - August 2, 2007 6:19 PM

    Hi Guy,

    Just booked my tickets for Mon 20th August!

    Thanks
    Paul

  34. Karen - August 3, 2007 3:43 AM

    Looks like I wont be next on Guy’s hit list Paul, you will be 🙂

    I will be in England/​Scotland late Nov, early Dec will see if Mr Pratt still touring then.

    Karen.

  35. Paul Sexton - August 3, 2007 8:01 AM

    Hi Karen,I’ve got a wit­ness coming with me, just in case!.

  36. Phoenix - August 6, 2007 7:54 PM

    I don’t wish to be a bother, but there’s a mes­sage on your myspace that could use your atten­tion when you get a moment.

    Thank you kindly!

    Nix.

  37. Paul Sexton - August 6, 2007 11:34 PM

    Nix,
    Is it my mes­sage???, no big fuss really!!.My daughter will go shop­ping instead.Because the gig starts so early i thought i might drag her along.…..she’s 13 going on 20!!!!
    Cheers
    Paul

  38. Phoenix - August 7, 2007 3:14 AM

    No, dear Paul, it’s for Guy. And I should have included the word ‘please’ too.

    Nix.

  39. Becky in Atlanta - August 22, 2007 11:25 AM

    Howdy, Guy. We BarnFest atten­dees lis­tened to your show on Saturday. It was even better than I expected! 😉 The inter­view with Rick was won­derful and the Gdansk Echoes clip? Brilliant.

    Sorry to say that I missed the show on Sunday. Is there an archived show fea­ture? Have you already answered this ques­tion eleventy-​​one times?

    I sent the Planet Rock peeps a little note exclaiming over you. Having your own show would be great!

    Hope to see you on the radio again soon.…

    Becky

  40. Bran - September 29, 2007 1:56 PM

    Yo Guy!

    First of all, I got Gilmours dvd…you’re amazing…whole thing, the gig, the documentarys…simply won­derful. You folks had a won­der­full time it seems, on and off stage.
    Anyway, see you in Zagreb next week with Ferry…I’m really looking for­ward to it.

    Cheerio!
