Having been a podcast for about 3 years, looking for new music to play is enjoyable and a pleasure, especially when you come across something really good. When people from around the world send us good music we don’t have to look for, we get excited and can’t help but dance, sing along and share it with you.
This is what episode 31 is all about, people reaching out to us via social media and recommending their own musical creations or those of friends and family. Christian artists from Canada, Holland, America and Madagascar have either sent us tracks or people close to them have brought to our attention, these musical gems.
There is a brew review of a great local Perth brewery, Otherside brewing co, albums The Eclectic has listened to in 2019, some highly recommended, some not and of course all the other things that make it The Eclectic Podcast.
We’re sorry Episode 30 took this long to reach your ears, but things have been happening, like wedding and giving birth things. But Chris and I are past all that and are ready to give you Asher Van Wollingen and The Colab coffee roasters.
