What comes after the Fringe podcast? Edinburgh Nights!

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

I might have hinted at this near the end of my thoughts looking back at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe podcast. I had a blast doing the show, which this year was recorded and broadcast live on Castle FM as well as going out as a podcast through the usual RSS powered sources.

When the Fringe was over, the time-slot on the FM dial was still open, so it felt natural to keep the one hour format of music and intervews going, but with some tweaks to fit the landscape in Edinburgh for the other 11 months of the year. So it’s a weekly one-hour show, 3pm-4pm every Friday, with guests from comedy, theatre, music, and the occasional special event, mixed in with bands playing in the local clubs, and a little quiz element called ‘Twenty Questions Wrong‘ (more on that in my next blog post, I think).

As I’m writing this after the event, you can listen to the show right now. I promise I’ll give you a bit more heads up next week so those of you outside Edinburgh can listen to the live stream from Castle FM. Truth is with the move to Castle FM’s Studio One I wanted to get all the buttons and sliders in the right place before the internet audience arrived!

Not long to go now, in Fringe terms, but with five nights of Fringe shows there’s still  thousand of performances that  you can take in, and only a small fraction of them can show up on the podcast. So here’s your daily flavour of the Fringe. With John Fico (Made for Each Other), Vicky Jones and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Ben Van Der Velde (Chain Letter), and Brian Kennedy.

And now it’s time for something a little racey for Sunday, or at least interviews that might not be suitable for the airwaves of 98.8 Castle FM across Edinburgh! Just the interviews today, so let’s focus on the artists and head into the Fringe. With Eric Davis, Bob Slayer, Gary Beadle (The Room In The Elephant), and Cassette Boy vs. DJ Rubbish.

The ‘big’ weekend approaches, with tickets to be sold, new fans and friends to be made, award judges to be impressed, all while trying to avoid the thought that there are still ten days left to go. With Jess Abrams (Cat Stevens Reconstructed), Brydie Lee-Kennedy and Courtney Powell (Sugar and Vice), Owen O’Neil and Dave Johns (The Shawshank Redemption), and Karin Danger (Hot Box).

Time for a Saturday special on the Fringe podcast. While we’re broadcasting live on Castle FM Monday through Friday, not every guest can make it down to the radio studio. That leaves a lot of stories around the Fringe that still need to be told, so this year we’ll be heading into Edinburgh with the podcast microphone to bring you Carey Marx, Death Ship 666!, Ben Moor, and Darts Wives.
