Sheer Isolation 37- with Brian Keen (1) (31/01/21)

Joining us on this week's Sheer Isolation is Brian Keen - one of the West's longest-serving sound engineers. Bri has been part of Swindon's music scene for years, and spent several years hosting a local music show in the town with our very own Jon. In this two part interview, we go back to the seventies when Bri was first starting out in the music industry, his time spent at Island Records working with upcoming artists who went on to become the household names, going on tour with Ultravox, and how technology has changed the role of the sound engineer as we've moved from requiring tonnes of machinery to needing just a laptop with a studio app.

On the music front we have a brand new track from Devizes grunge act Gary Martian, and Bri picks a tune from one of his favourite acts, Cirencester Americana duo, The Black Feathers.

Meanwhile, Kieran has another rant about the latest idea from the PRS, and shares the news of his first gig of the year.

Sheer Isolation 37- with Gavin Osborn (24/01/21)

Bringing live music performances to people in our most remote villages, our guest on this week's Sheer Isolation is Gavin Osborn from the Wiltshire Rural Music charity. In normal times, Gavin would be taking musicians on tour in mobile libraries across the county. This year his charity work has adapted to help the most isolated with care home gigs through Zoom and setting up a dial-a-musician scheme.

We also cover the news that Glastonbury Festival has once again been cancelled - what does that mean for the rest of the 2021 festival calendar. And, are musicians getting enough revenue from streaming? This week's music includes an older tune from Bristol rock outfit, Thought Forms, and a double-feature live shanty from Street's Nick Parker.
