Black Wax Live! Show 9

It happened! We managed to run a show with a live guest in front of an audience. It’s been the plan from the start and on Sunday 19th March we welcomed people into the live lounge to watch a special session by Murray Torkildsen.

For a show that hasn’t had a tech-hitch free run yet it was a bit of a risk to add a live element into the show, but with some extra help on hand we managed to run smooth transitions between the studio and the live room, with the audience in the live room and everyone tuning in at home hearing the full uninterrupted show. The standard has been set, and we’re already preparing for the next one!

The list of ‘thanks’ is – The guys at Phoenix Community Radio for letting me do this, Sam Russell for running the live PA, the people who listen in at home week after week, the audience that fed their curiosity and came on down to the show, everyone who’s been supporting this venture, and of course Murray Torkildsen for performing.

A special mention also to Andy Lee for signing up to be the official Black Wax photographer. He’s documented the evening wonderfully in the photos below.

So… What ya waiting for!? Here’s the show… play it loud!
