James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Great Indie Music from the Middle East

This is easily the best hour of radio in the UAE. For just under an hour we play some of the coolest Middle Eastern indie tunes and have a conversation about what we think. Adam is the music detective here. There are always a few surprises on the playlist! Play this show and share it. […]

Your Weekly Music Fix

One of the things you learn very fast when you have the opportunity to listen to radio from around the world is that there is not a lot of local music being played anywhere. What is going on with the indie music scene in the UAE is not much different anywhere around the world, it […]

A little Indie Music

How often do you get to sit down with a great cup of coffee, some really good friends and talk about music that is great and not being heard by enough people? For me this happens on a weekly basis. I rock up at RAW Coffee, they turn down the house music and we talk […]

A great conversation with Kali McDermmot about music and more

Once a week I host a show called the ME Indie Jukebox, easily the best show featuring music and interviews with artists in the region. Joshua Williams of Record Pro Records does the legwork of getting an incredible cast of musicians into […]

Great tunes from Dubai

  What is one of the 1st things you do when you get into a car? You turn on the radio. What about when you land in a new town, you listen for the music of the place. On a weekly basis Joshua Williams and myself sit down with some really interesting musical artists in […]

The Dubai Music Industry

  My interest in the workings of cultural industries started well before grad school. Over the past 25 years I have gone from Canada to the UAE and from one industrial environment to another. What has not changed is the fact that cultural industries are one of the most cherished by nations and the most […]
