#93 Meltingpod 4th anniversary : Special USA podcast and Viva Obama (Yes we can !!!)

Four years ago I published my first podcast on Meltingpod !! A incredible adventure which started in 2004 from the USA with Adam Curry (the podfather) and Dave Winner and for me with my friend Michael Butler from San Francisco who hosts the Rock and Roll Geek Show…So I chose to play a lot of songs from American bands for that fourth anniversary !

Frank Meyer (the Street Walkin’s Cheetahs – L.A.)

I started with a song called « Annie » by Copperpot (New Jersey) Michael found and dedicated me on his own show, then :
The Hangmen (L.A.) : Here she comes
Kick Kick (Kansas) : Heart over the bar
Frank Meyer and Thor (L.A.) : Standing On The Edge Of Hell
Small Doses (Washington DC) : B-Train
Michael Butler & American Heartbreak (S. Francisco) : Things are looking up
Texas Terri Bomb (L.A.) : Dream Wrecker
I hope you will enjoy that rock and roll from Obama’s country !!…
and a kind of my first birthday’s song coming from Australia…:)

 A little memory from March 8th 2005 !!

The Angels from Australia and Meltingpod : the friendly connection Sydney-Marseille goes throught the years around a song…

The Angels from Australia created a new website when Doc Neeson joined the band again at the vocals and I’m happy to see they gave me a nice place in their news page remembering to their fans all the infos I published on Meltingpod about the band between 2005 and 2008 : 13 podcasts-phone interviews with Buzz Bidstrup, John and Rick Brewster, Doc Neeson and around 30 reviews about some of their special events and shows.
It’s time now to the Angels to come and sing their famous song « Marseille » (written in 78) IN Marseille !! Hoping some help from the sky will accompagn our efforts to meet each other in person soon !!

Molly Malone Live show by Irishmen in Marseille for Meltingpod blog 4th anniversary !!

A little video I filmed during a funny party in Marseille and I chose to publish today to wish my blog Meltingpod a nice 4th anniversary : All their secret rituals will be revealed to you by the Irishmen themselves…at least !!

There even is a special mention to Chris Bailey from the Saints (the first Irishman I met in my life !!), if you’re attentive…:)
This « intercultural » party closed in fact an European one week long exchange between young people coming from Ireland, Spain, Italy and France organized by Eurocircle Marseille in September 2008.
