Second up, some changes to the schedule - it's all been a whirl of new things and I hate to change advertised things, but new opportunities to get things out there present themselves. So - I'm abandoning the ustream channel and all live streaming will be on Mixlr from now on. Ustream has always been a bit of a hack, using a video service to do audio. Mixlr is dedicated to creating live audio and has all sorts of features I'll be playing with over the next weeks. The Nicholas Nickleby readings will be every weekday at 2pm as advertised, but the Saturday show has been moved - so I'm doing that at 2pm, not 1pm. I'm also not doing the repeat at 6pm.
Basically, there'll be a show most days at 2pm (BST until the clocks change to GMT again). There may even be a 2pm Sunday show occasionally.
Now all that detail is out the way, to new stuff. I've had a number of messages asking for when new things are going to come. I don't like releasing a complete schedule, but I like there to be some play, but not that I've got the live streams going, recording for new material will now be happening on Saturdays. That means the podcast version follows shortly after the live version - all edited and lovely.
The Saturday show is going to be a mix of, hopefully, at least three things, two new performances and maybe something from the archive. NOW AT 2PM, REMEMBER - can be found on Mixlr, or listened on this player.

Dates for known specific shows are as follows.
October 28th - As it's close to Halloween, a ghostly theme. The Pub That Cried Ghost & a third The Other Day story.
November various - TBA
November 25th: The Bear Named Mo- Revisited. Ten years ago a school teacher was arrested for naming a teddy bear Mohammed - I wrote a piece about the incident then and am going back to it and taking another look. Find out how I managed not to get on local television dressed as a giant teddy bear.
December 2nd: Attack of the Christmas Squirrels - a comic story about a prolonged campaign to end early Christmas advertising gets out of hand.
Dec 9th, 16th & 23rd: The Roial Unstitute Chris-mas Lectures - three comic lectures on impossible or silly subjects.
And, of course, I'll be performing The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby every weekday from Monday, so there's that to look forward to as well.
