AAT #021 (11/04/09): Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

Wow, what an Argyll. This was our long-awaited crossover event with 9th UB Radio. We called it UBgyll UBventure TrUB, and it was four hours of music with very little talk. Whoever was playing the current record would spin a slightly damaged spinner to determine who would follow them at the turntables.

You can listen to the whole show here, or just the argyll portion here, or just the UB portion here.

The result was this eclectic list of records…

Well, there you have it. You’ll have to download both the Argyll Adventure Tree and 9th UB Radio files to get the whole show. Even then, a few songs will be missing in the middle and at the end, because the recordings cut off the last ten minutes of the second and fourth hours. Still plenty of stuff to hear. Lots of interesting juxtapositions and surprising picks from all four of us. I’ll post the links when Aaron posts the podcasts.
