Ah, music. It’s our daily bread, the metaphorical loaf in which everything we do is joyously sandwiched. And that’s why we’re hosting a series of #LunchtimeListens. Each of these sessions will see a musical selector plumbing the depths of their record collection to deliver sonic joy in the ground floor bar of The Social while we serve up lunch. We’ll record each session for posterity (and for a wider audience’s listening pleasure) and archive it on the Sonic Sandwich website.
Friday 24 March, 2017 (1-2pm)
First up to the decks for our inaugural #LunchtimeListens session is Richie MacKichan. We met Richie backstage of the West Holts stage at Glastonbury Festival last year where he was running the stage’s press team and generally being a Very Good Egg. Not only is he a fellow music lover and occasional spinner of discs, it turns out Richie is editor at boutique hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith – which basically means he’s visited record shops in more far flung locations than most. When he conversationally summarised his musical interests as “cosmic country, yacht rock, soul, disco and weird electro” we knew we’d have to get him along to spin us some tunes.
He’ll be playing records between 1pm and 2pm this Friday 24th March. Come and have a Sonic Sandwich!
