Two Revived Songs at HFC

I've picked out two songs from my old back catalogue of songs from an earlier era and relearned them, adapted slightly for my current style. Then I played them both for the podcast prototype 3  and then the next day at Havering Folk Club ( HFC ).

Unfortunately these songs don't really go together back to back very well, being both in the same key and also having some of the same words in each's title so I sandwiched something else in between each time.

The War is Over


The Dream Is Over

Future Music Blogs

In the future most of these little blogs recording which songs I played where are going to be posted over at the new site I've set up for the podcasting, andyroberts.me

The Same Old Rock

last week I took my 12 string guitar along to Havering Folk Club and at the last minute decided to play a version of Roy Harper's The Same Old Rock, just because I felt like it. Tis my favourite song after all. Not my best rendition ever, but I enjoyed myself anyway.

Podcast Prototype Number 1

Well I didn't get to Havering Folk Club last Wednesday because I was on holiday canal boating on the Kennet and Avon canal on board Isabella.
So instead I'm blogging here about what's happening with the Tuesday evening live streaming music show that I've been doing for almost a year now, most weeks. I've decided to turn it into a podcast as well.  That means you don't have to be there live at 7.00pm on a Tuesday in order to hear the show. You should be able to subscribe with iTunes or similar feed reading software, and have each episode downloaded as an mp3 file to listen to as and when you have a spare moment.

The show itself is pretty much the same unrehearsed music and chat as always except that I don't stop to mess about with the record/stop button and saving the description and tags etc in between each song. The whole thing gets recorded as one block and then the audio is stripped out and distributed through the podcasting channel via one of my websites called  andyroberts.me

We're still in the prototyping stage so this could change but for the present the new url for the podcast feed should be at


Try putting that into your iTunes subscriptions . In my version you have to go to the overhead top  go to the top of page drop down menu and select "Advanced" then "Subscribe to Podcast" and paste the url http://andyroberts.me/?feed=podcast  into the box which pops up. Your mileage may vary.

I can still edit out individual songs for uploading to youTube so there's nothing lost in that respect and here are the five songs from last week's Andy Roberts podcast prototype number 1

The Wreckers Prayer

People Are Strange


Here Comes The Sun

Narrow Boats
