Right…Those of you who have been following us for some time will realise that the website hasn’t been updated for a while. Those of you who have just found us will probably think not much has happened with us since
early April. Not so.
Essentially, we’ve had a bit of a pow-wow/board meeting/cup of tea and a chat here at BBHQ, and have decided to make a few changes.
For years now, we’ve been putting out a weekly 4hour live radio show (available for download for the following 7 days) across a variety of musical styles. And jolly good fun it has been, too. However, although we get good feedback from our listeners, we’re acutely aware that a 4-hour show is a hell of a lot to download in todays snappy 20-minute podcast world. Also, if this weeks music genre isn’t your style, then you’ll have to wait for another show (and another week) for something that might be up your street.
Also, the Family Blunt is not getting any younger, and our day-jobs/lives have been keeping us more than busy.
We’re all a little more spread out, both location-wise, and waistline-wise. All of this has impacted on our ability to bring you, our much-loved listener, quality Blunt Beats approved music. And we apologise.
But, we’re gonna fix it.
Rather than struggling to do a fresh 4 hour show every week that is a mammoth download file, we’ve decided to move our focus onto shorter, regular podcast/mix series based on our existing radio show brands (e.g. Dub Chamber, Soul Food, Electric Noodles etc), which will be a little bit more directed for you the listener, and a little easier for us to manage. We’ll also be posting special one-off mixes, archive sets, and material from our friends and guests.
Have no fear, we’ll still be doing live radio shows, with our resident DJs and guests. We’ll post about them here on the site, and also put details of upcoming shows on our radio page.
Essentially, “less is more”, as they say. Think of it as a new, streamlined, low-carb Blunt Beats (ok…..scrub the low-carb bit, but you get the idea)
