In this pilot show, the first to be broadcast on behalf of The Harp newspaper, we are getting ready for the official launch of the partnership between Acoustic1 and The Harp newspaper of Birmingham. To celebrate our relationship we will be doing a very special show for Saint Patrick's day 2014. With local Irish musicians and their music it will be a fantastic opprtunity to celebrate Birmingham's massive annual celebrations while showcasing the extraordinary musical talent that the Irish community of Birmingham has to offer. If you're a local Irish musician or no someone who is please get involved, it's your show!
Back by popular demand! This show is a John Lennon special presented by local, Birmingham musician, Dale Hanson. This special is part of a series of acoustic only close-ups we will do for artists that have helped shape the music industry. John Lennon maybe an obvious starting point but when you focus only on his acoustic output the results may be far from obvious. We all have an opinion as music is subjective but presented here is the top five acoustic Lennon tracks as chosen by Dale. What would your top five be? Let us know via our Facebook page.
Welcome to our Peaky Blinders Special - As proud Brummies we loved the BBC drama 'Peaky Blinders' I guess it was just inevitable that we would produce this special broadcast. The superb eight part drama was set in Birmingham during the inter-war period of the early 20th Century which is an usual setting for any period drama. The horrors of the 'Great War' saw many damaged men delivered back into society and this hard hitting drama has all that on show in abundance. Set in 1919 the drama is focused on a gangster family that ran a large part of Birmingham, the men of the family kept razor blades hidden in the peaks of their cloth caps, hence, Peaky Blinders. Here we present ten tracks that fit the narrative of the programme beautifully. Don't be a stupid Peaky Blinder...tune in and have a listen!
This new episode is the first of four new shows where we present to you our top acoustic tracks. Each episode in the series will include 25 acoustic songs that we think you should hear, although they're in no particular order as it's just way to hard decide which song is better than this or that.
