Hello and welcome to Extended Play. I’m Matt Parker, a music journalist based in Manchester in the UK, and I’ve set up this podcast for three main reasons:
1) To provide a platform for interesting artists and music-types who genuinely have something to say.
2) To offer an alternative to rambling, un-researched podcasts (a valid format, I think, but not what everyone’s after).
3) In order to accrue obscene personal wealth.
I’ll have news on my first guest shortly, as I’m off to interview him later today and I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag until I’ve, err, got this cat thoroughly in the bag.
He’s probably best described as a folkie, but I’ll be talking to musicians and writers from all over the spectrum, so don’t expect Extended Play to be limited exclusively to wool-wearers.
That’s it for now. Once we’re up and running, I aim to be posting two interviews a month. In the meantime, if you want to stay up to date with happenings, follow Extended Play on Twitter and Facebook.
