I have a radio showI post that radio show online. I make artwork for the shows each week. In this series of posts I will, seven at a time, explain the thoughts, the photos, and the location of each of the covers. 

Because this is the first post on the new blog... I can do a cool gallery! Use the arrows to move between the pictures.  I have updated all the previous episodes too to show the new gallery design, so have a look and let me know how it goes.

The Monday Graveyard Covers, Shows 8 to 14

I have a radio showI post that radio show online. I make artwork for the shows each week. In this series of posts I will, seven at a time, explain the thoughts, the photos, and the location of each of the covers. 

This set takes me through to 21 shows, which is over 21 hours of radio. I will, in three shows time, have enough recorded word and music to have a continuous full-day broadcast, which is incredible. Thanks to everyone for their support.

The Monday Graveyard Covers, Shows 1 to 7

Oh, you didn't know I had a radio show? Well, I do - catch it on Monday nights, 11pm to midnight on Pulse 98.4 here or via the Tunein radio app. Pretty neat? You can listen to the shows at the blog, here.

Anyway, each week I post the recorded show onto Mixcloud to allow people to listen back to them. 11 to midnight is a late slot, so I understand that it's good to have that feature of the show. Plus, I am big on archiving shows like that.

The brand of the show, that you can see on the main blog, is a wind turbine, taken from underneath. I like the majesty of the turbine. The grey colour sky is nice, I think.

Each show put up has a cover image, and I like making them. So, here are the first seven covers with a bit of text about them. I am going to keep this series going over the run of the show which should hopefully being a long time.

The first show sets the tone for the whole series, and it was something that I agonised over for quite some time. It is actually just a sequel, or a redo, of the Wednesday Graveyard: "Live" series of podcasts, and the series three style, with a few tweaks. Namely, the name (!) and the date. I decided that the date is important seeing as each week there will be a new show.

Wednesday Graveyard: "Live" - The Artwork

A cool feature of Mixcloud is the ability to upload your own artwork for your mixes, and I worked on this with gusto.  Each week had it's own artwork, all of which were photos taken by myself.  These are below with some details on what they are.

The first week. This photo was taken in October on my walk from from work in Aberdeen - it's a shot of the sky at night across the runway at Aberdeen Airport. Interestingly, a second later a plane flew into the sights of the camera that I missed. Which is a shame.

Second week - shot of one of my chairs in my front room. This is where I recorded the first pilot show of the run and it hurt my back tremendously.

Third week - taken at Dyce railway station on in evening in November, it was nice to get this show without anyone in it - normally the other platform, going North, is quite busy.

The fourth week - this show was taken in September from the George V bridge in Aberdeen looking west along the river dee as I walked to five a sides. I love the sun burning through the horizon. It reminds me of an album cover. Not that I am saying it is good enough to be one, of course... :D
