James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Just a little fun!

This is the way we roll! I often think I should record 2 radio shows, the on air and the off air! Thoughts?

The Music of the week club

If you have been hanging around this site for a while you know that the music of the week club, also known as the ME Indie Music Jukebox on DubaiEye is one of my favourite hours of radio.

We really are good people!

I wonder, out loud, if air travel is a measure of how good we are as people? Think about it for a moment, for several hours we are caged up in a tube and forced to live in very close proximity with almost perfect strangers. Over the hours of confinement we have to communicate, give, […]
