JW Show 196: The First Claire Rozario Takeover
…as there will be many more Claire Rozario takeovers of this show, so we’re excited to get this thing off the ground. We’re so happy to have her. Over to Claire! (And next time I won’t even have to use italics for her notes!)
Today’s show featured heaps of new music, my fave track of the week, our free feature, ‘gigs & things’, the news, an interview with singer/songwriter Richard James & the Discovery 2 Preview with Umong & Justin (well he couldn’t not be in the show somewhere could he?)
Featuring music from new faces Lukas Drinkwater, Emily Howard and The Secret Weapons, along with 2 tracks from our Top 10 of the month. Note to all: this is the last week to vote so head over and pick your top 3 now . Last month Justin had to cover himself in burning fake tan. Don’t let something similar become my fate!
Richard James joins us this show to have a quick fire chat about himself, his music, and his opinions on independent music that made David Jordan of Beatnik Geek Records throw his chips on the floor!

Justin’s back next week (with Claire) and we’ve got Rob Fraboni , producer extrodinairre to share some wisdom from behind the big mixer! I think he’s also going to fix digital music, and tell us how he’s going to do it. (Hint, it’s called RealFeel.)
