Living To Music 33⅓

33⅓

Following a run of 2 years 9 months I’ve decided to wind things down with Living To Music, making it an irregular feature of the blog from herein. Up until now it had been a monthly series, but something has to give and, as I’m currently stuggling to fit in all the things I need to be doing, I can’t maintain this commitment, although I don’t want to stop the series completely.

The Reward For Work Is More Work

When my agent, Matt Johnson, booked me in for ‘A Night With…’, I hadn’t realised that it did exactly what it said on the tin, namely present just the one DJ for the full 8 hours the venue was open. I generally play for either 2 or 3 hours, with the odd 4 hour slot along the way – the only times I can recall playing longer (since I started out again), was a night at The Key in London back in 2005, and then the Credit To The Edit launch parties, both Sunday All-Dayers held at a couple of East End boozers (The Dolphin in 2005 and The Horse & Groom in 2009), so, as you can imagine, it came as a bit of a shock when the penny dropped and I realised that I’d unwittingly signed up for a marathon, but I quickly warmed to the idea and began to ponder the possibilities it presented.

Living To Music Update – July 2012

It’s almost 2 years since Living To Music was launched with Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’ in August 1st 2010. Since then it’s been a key feature of the blog and pretty successful in fulfilling its basic objective, which is to help get people to sit down and listen to music, as opposed to treating it as something in the background. It’s also spun-off ‘Classic Album Sundays’, which has gone from strength to strength in recent times, and is even holding sessions in the US now:
