…so Sunday afternoon I was thinking about knocking The Rabbit Hole on the head. It was a lot of work, we’d under recorded in the past, maybe it had had it’s very brief day. Then, Sunday evening, we recorded over 2 hours of actual proper real gold. It was one of those evenings where everything just worked! Technically it was superb. People called in. We had some delicious answerphone messages, and a live audience that wanted to play. Highlights were the call from a new dad who’d been given the number by his mate and Mrs Mu’s Mum replacing Katherine for an hilarious 20 minutes.
The next day, we were offered a chance to appear at the Manchester Fringe in the summer (details to follow). A few more days later and we are invited to appear at both Newcastle and Edinburgh.
Katherine and I are both buoyed by the success of Sunday and really proud of the next 4 shows you lot have got coming towards you. Looks like there’s life in the old rabbit yet.
We won’t be appearing in London until later in the year and the only show that we have onside is Manchester on Saturday May 6th. There are about 14 tickets left so grab them while you still can from www.ticketsource.co.uk/iain-lee . Fingers crossed we can keep weaving gold out of thin air for a while to come yet!
Ah man, if you came to the recording on Sunday 19th Feb then you have the patience of a saint. It was a tough start to the evening as we were beset with technical problems. I was hearing a BUZZ through the headphones and I really think it would have ruined the recordings. It took about 35 minutes to get it sorted and it was very hot so Katherine and I just wanted to say thank you so much for sticking with us. We really appreciate it. I hope the ukulele playing wasn’t too bad.
It meant, in my humble opinion, that the shows got off to a slow start. If I’m swearing, that means I’m struggling. And I swore a lot. But, we did eventually get moving and get into some sort of gear. Caller were a little thin on the ground, and I need to find a way to encourage more random calls but we did have a very vocal and, let be honest, grumpy Australian and now we all know why Zack is a prick.
The download figures are growing, almost up to the levels of the talkRADIO show which is great, and we’ve sold a few T-shirts and totes so it’s all groovy. Please do subscribe (and unsubscribe then subscribe again) on iTunes but we are on nearly all podcast providers. To make it easy, I’m leaving it at the bottom of this page as well.
Don’t forget, next record is Sunday March 26th in London and then our first show outside of London in Manchester at the Three Minute Theatre in Oldham Street on Saturday May 6th. We really hope you can make it. If you want to buy tickets then just click this link www.ticketsource.co.uk/iain-lee
