...Ch-ch-changes ahoy. As I sit here with a KitKat I wonder how to start. From today, You Can Call Me Betty is going podcast-only, so no longer will I be continuing with posting mp3s etc. I've come to the conclusion that actually I don't really have time to do this as well as I'd like, evidenced by the sparse posting patterns of the last few weeks. I have other things which occupy my time, so I'll be concentrating on writing reviews at NoRipcord and Don't Worry About The Government (when Tom pulls his finger out), and creating a better breed of podsafe, new-music-tastic podcasts for your listening enjoyment. You will find the podcasts posted here and, for a while at least, at yccmb.blogspot.com
I've very much enjoyed writing though, and hope to invest as much into the podcasts as I have into the blog, not least of which is some stonkingly ace music, as always. You should be able to tell that by the tracklisting below, so have a listen, then see ya later alligator.
So: blame work, blame having a life and stuff, but as you know it, this is the end of You Can Call Me Betty.
Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye
