But first up - our 50TH SHY LIFE PODCAST episode!!
THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 50: COMEDY OF ERRS
Here we are for episode FIFTY - in which Mr Yeti is reunited with The Smellcast team: Toppie Smellie and the rest of his gang. Paul and Toppie discuss old sitcoms, The Shy Life Podcast regulars chat with the Pickle Hollow team and all manner of hilarity ensues! Our next episode, number 51 - sees Mr Yeti catching up with a lady who most folk wouldn't say Boo to! It'll be out soon!! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. This episode and all contents are Copyright Paul Chandler, 2017. Episode 50 was recorded between the 10th December 2016 and the 20th January 2017. This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud.
With the release of episode 50, January has seen six new podcast episodes and I'm currently working on the first episode for February, which hops us back to early December for a chat with Brenda Boo from DRIVE TIME TONOPAH and the LOTSL PODCAST... I'm quite excited by the line up of episodes for this month - which also includes our Valentine's episode, which will be episode 52... I'm not going to make any definite promises of the order of the episodes after that - but there will definitely be another live episode coming up on the third Sunday of the month, 19th February 2017.
Our prose piece this time is called CHAINED TO THE PAST... I wouldn't say that we were chained to it exactly - but as I mentioned earlier I have been posting more Sutton Park episodes on Youtube - this time from December 1995. Here are the links...
...And here are some stills from those episodes - featuring regulars Andrew T, Nick G, Elaine and Keith M (before they were married!) and Andy C... Oh, and me, of course!
Next time, there will be more podcast things and either new prose or something about the new book, which is due any day now...
Anyway, that's all for now...
Take care - more soon,
Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx
P.S. I came up with the idea for this piece whilst talking with DJ Starsage and Duchess Sue for a SHY LIFE PODCAST episode in late November 2016 - but I didn't decide to definitely write the story until I was editing this episode in mid-January 2017. I noted down the idea on Wednesday 18th January 2017 and began writing the piece the following day, tweaking it as I wrote and extending the initial sentences until it was finally completed and posted on Thursday 2nd February 2017.
