January 2015’s Artist of the Month has to be Rebecca James. This young, hard-working Artist has been on our radar for a long while. She performed as a Solo artist many times at The Brewhouse and appeared on my Radio Cardiff shows too. Since moving to London, she has blossomed into a fine Artist and is making big waves, with record labels chasing after her 🙂 x Make sure you follow her and check out her video ‘1000 Roses’

Her debut in Cardiff just before Christmas with her full band was a pleasure to experience and look forward to her gracing our stage again in the near future 🙂 x
December 2014 – ‘Artist of The Month’ – Probably one of the finest new bands out there in my opinion. The James Clode Band have an abundance of Energy, Passion and Dedication. These are but a few ingredients that make this band shine. James has a belter of a voice that will one day match the likes of ‘The Boss’ and Mr Springsteen. If he doesn’t break a guitar string at his gig, he is not happy as it shows he hasn’t put every once of his energy into his stage craft. Big things are definitely on the cards for these guys and gals xx
be sure to say hello and follow them into 2015 – Facebook – Twitter – Website – Soundcloud

Big Scott Radio has been asked to return to the lovely island of Malta on December 6th 2014. This time we have the honour of broadcasting from The Electro Lobster Project, Ballutta, St. Julian’s. The Colonel and all Shipmates of Malta are working hard behind the scenes, to create yet another amazing line-up from around the island. Confirmed so far we have David Ellul, Alex Fairman and Greek Singer/Songwriter Maro Sol Liapi. The band confirmed so far are Eversity and Maddee Loveday with her band whose members are from Venezuela, Spain, Malta, and UK.
For Artists links and more details go to the Facebook Event Page
About the Electro Lobster Project –
Straight away the name should confuse then intrigue you into wondering what it’s all about; a treasure of a place nestled within the historic beauty of one of Malta’s most eye-catching art nouveau buildings.
Delicious food, stunning decor and an enviable selection of premium whiskeys. An absolute must. As the name would suggest Lobster is their speciality. The rest of the menu is classic Sicilian, sourcing the freshest ingredients and allowing their rich flavours to dominate each dish.
As a contrast the bar snack menu is a constantly changing international fusion of small dishes ranging from gourmet popcorn to twelve hour slow roasted pork belly bites.
The cocktail barmen at Electro Lobster Project make their own infusions and chutneys, keeping away from mass produced syrupy shortcuts, producing the most creative & freshest cocktails in the area.
With its own live stage and live recording studio, ELP is set to become Malta’s no 1 venue for both established and up and coming bands.
The wonderful guys at JCB created this lovely video for my final day on Radio Cardiff to show the love and support for what I do. They came to the studio to hand it to me personally and I have a tear in my eye every time I watch it. The words to the song reflect the emotions on the day. I love the way that music carves memories into your musical mind. Many thanks to John Camilleri for the great pictures and Marilyn Collard for being wonderful. Also a big shout out to all of The James Clode Band for their kind words and woamzing music xx I look forward to seeing you on some BIG stages next year 🙂 xx
After 4+ years of volunteering at Radio Cardiff 98.7fm my shows are surplus to requirements so will cease on Monday 24th November 2014 at 4pm. The Final show will highlight a few of the great acts discovered along the way plus interviews with Phil Watkis and The 1957 Tail-Fin Fiasco. As usual we will finish with our popular ‘Thought for the Day’ and the last song will be my first ever Dubplate received from the amazing Phil Watkis 🙂 Click here for show details & playlist
I would like to thank Radio Cardiff 98.7fm for allowing me to utilize their facilities and platform, to educate myself and my Trainee Volunteers to the New-Age ways that radio is managed and broadcast. I would also like to thank those who made the journey a pleasurable one and hope to work with you in the future.
To all the Trainee Volunteers that have come on-board my shows over the years, I hope that the fun times and training we shared will be a help in your future. Finally to all the loyal listeners who have shared the love & links to the amazing interviews and exclusives we’ve had along the way 🙂
Now is the time for me to concentrate on what I love, to chat to real people and showcase the amazing Unsigned Artists out there, who have very few Radio platforms to demonstrate their amazing skills in a ‘Live Broadcasting’ situation. As one door closes, many new doors are opening to continue broadcasting the music I discover on a weekly basis. So be sure to follow the journey on all social media outlets and check out the Feedback from the artists themselves.
Once again, A big ‘Thank You’ to those of you who helped create and share some amazing memories.
ps I am conducting my own Show Survey so please feel free to listen to any of my shows and let me know your thoughts.
Feel free to leave your comments below 🙂

Phil Watkis is our choice for the inaugural month of this new slot for my Radio Cardiff Shows.
So for the first ever ‘Artist of The Month’ we have Chosen Phil Watkis from Kingston, Jamaica. He has been slowly enticing the reggae world with his amazing lyrics which are delivered in a real yet soulful way. ‘Falling For You’ was released on 22nd August 2014 and is already causing a stir! Be sure to go and let him know what you think – Facebook – Twitter – Soundcloud
Just had some recent good news. Brewhouse (where we broadcast the Originals Nights) has been named WINNER of the Best Entertainment Pub for the West Midlands & Wales region in the Great British Pub Awards 2014!!!! We are so honoured to have even been considered for the title, especially since its only our first year in business. A HUGE thank you to all of our wonderful musicians, staff and patrons… we’re on to the National Finals! – I even get a great email from the venue too 🙂
Nick Newman (Brewhouse Manager) – “I would say that part of the decision-making process that led to us achieving the regional award would definitely have been our commitment to your ‘Originals’ night. So you definitely get to share in the acclaim!”
