Welcome to Overheard Productions In Transition to the Overheard Group

Welcome to Overheard Productions as it currently stands, and has stood, since 6 December 2003.

However, after 36 reboots, and reduxes, and not a little redacting, we’re now in a transition phase to splut up…

Splut up? Ok, I’ve been hanging around with a LOT of Kiwis lately.

We’re splitting into a number of reasonably well-defined entities, some of which will carry the red, white, and black livery that you currently se, others that will be similar in look and feel, and others that will be duck-diving under the surface, away from view, such that if you see them, you won’t recognise they come from the same stable.

We’ll be the Woolworths or Coles of the music/entertainment/arts and toilet-cleaning world! 😉

Stay tuned! We won’t try to put a timeframe on this changeover, as that usually ends in tears. As recently as last week.

But definitely… maybe… possibly…

Surely be to goodness, mercy and light by Saturday 21 July 2017. Say around 7pm-ish at the Yacht Club! 😉 Call it a present to ourselves…

Various gods willing, inshallah, the creeks don’t rise, and the crops don’t fail.

Back to work. Can you see yourself out? Sweet.

Toodles!

[Audio Interview] Interview with Matt Barker Radio: Podcasts and Digital Radio

Matt Barker hails from Southend in Essex UK, which is a shame since most of the taxis won’t go further than Basildon.

That gag was an entry in the Morris Men-tal Institute Joke Competition of August 1936 and told repeatedly until a cease and desist order from the Greater London Department of Public Transport and Sun Beds in February 1937.

Where were we? Talking about Matt Barker and his two fabulous radio shows.

The Matt Barker Radio Show is two hours of finely organised chaos, going out to the world on Fridays at 6pm UK time, available on podcast from Mixcloud.

While the Deuce Radio Show is a tight little package (careful!) of the best new independent music to tumble onto Matt’s desk.

In this interview, Matt talks with Bill Quinn of Overheard Productions about the mechanics and motivations behind these shows, plus his future plans for well-funded world domination.

If you’ve got a favourite radio show that you believe deserves more earholes wrapped around its fruity, global goodness, drop Overheard Productions a line at bill.fj.quinn@gmail.com or leave a comment on this article.

Yours in great independent music

These are SO much more notes than I usually use!

Have at this then, Matt Barker!

Catch Matt Barker’s fabulous Deuce Radio Show at any tick of the clock — plus download lots of old shows (well, they’re quite young and fresh, but they’re less recent) here at: http://mattbarker.podomatic.com/

The Deuce Radio Show can be heard on The Radio Alternative at www.theradioalternative.com from 6-9pm GMT/BST, Fridays.

I’m not going to even try to translate that into AEDT or PT or ET (phone home, your mother worries about you) as we’re in that state of flux period where it’s 10 hours from London to Sydney, but soon it will be 11 hours and then you switch on the idiot box and we’re already an hour into the Wallabies seeing off another bunch of hapless water buffaloes stuck in the mud* (e.g. Engerland or Scoterland) on their way to blousing out of the Rugby World Cup.

Too soon?!

That is all!
