It's been a long journey with lots of technical issues, four computers, over 1500 emerging and independent artists... wow. Who knew that the little podcast that started in our tiny shared flat in east London would still be running today, and as strong as ever. There are tons of people to thank and recognize, and I'll do that at the end. Right now, check out the FIRST EVER episode of The Justin Wayne Show, first podcasted back on January 29th, 2008, just a few days after I turned 25.

Today marks the beginning of the JW Show going to podcast. This means new, excellent music and myself filling in all the cracks and the details. I do this because I love to listen to music, present on the radio, and share music with my friends – so that’s what you get when you download the podcast. It’s me, my good friend Ryan, some tunes, and a few other segments we’ve cooked up to bring together the music. A special thanks to Michael back at Bridger Bowl who did the real work on the image. You can see it on the blog now in the upper left. Cheers, Michael! Here’s a link to the first show (it’s also in the sidebar): The JW Show Ep. 1 Here’s the link to subscribe to the JW Show with your RSS reader (copy and paste into the “subscribe” feature on your podcatcher, which could be iTunes under “advanced” and then “subscribe to podcast”):http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheJustinWayneShow I’ll have a link directly to iTunes next week that will open your iTunes program and subscribe you automatically. AND… I’ll include a link next that will update automatically so if you want to post a link directly to the sound file on your site that’s always current, you’ll be able to do that. From now on, at the bottom of each posting which accompanies a podcast there will be a listing of the artists and how to find them on the web. As I only play one or two songs of each artist SOOO… Hit the blog and find their info, track down the CDs via download or mail, and make sure to tell them you heard them on the JW Show. You’ll also see these two sites in the sidebar from now on: magnatune.com and podsafeaudio.com . These two sites I’ve found quite a bit of great music from and they both have schemes where you (the non-podcaster… or podcasters alike!) and cheaply purchase songs and albums from these independent artists. Tell them I sent you. Question I’ve been getting (once from my mother): “Are you going to advertise and make money on this podcast?” The answer: NO!
We've got a show packed with great #realindie music this week (and trying to raise this hashtag and reclaim our "genre", and you'll hear Claire and I banter about with some fake jingles, talk about the upcoming Birthday Best, and we even give Randy a compliment in this episode, so it's worth listening if only just for that.

Air time on numerous BBC Introducing shows, including BBC 6 Music. Headline gigs at O2 Academy's and a sell-out EP launch at Camden Barfly and squeezing in the odd gig in France. Karl even found time to gain support from the 'Dont Flop' Rap battle league after taking part in what might be the worlds first ever "guitar rap battle". Summers were spent in festival mode spreading the rock/rap/ska vibe as far as Latvia! Sharing stages with the likes of The Subways, Tinchy Stryder and Zane Lowe. THE BULLETPROOF BOMB Their raucous edgy guitar driven sound has gained unprecedented attention including support by Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Gary Crowley BBC London, a headline slot on BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival. They have also played Leeds and Rob Da Banks stage at Bestival. Their debut EP was produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets). "Definitely a band that music appreciators from around the rocking globe should most certainly listen and watch closely for. Ace band." -Forkster Rocks KOLO Kolo are a three piece pop rock band based in London. Originally from Devon; Jon, Steve and Dan's epic pop rock anthems have been charming audiences up and down the UK since 2006. Their much anticipated debut album was produced in Nashville by Chris Henderson from 3 Doors Down .'Castro', the first track off the album, 'Who Wants to Rule the World?' Comes out on January 19th 2015. "I produced this album and I am still listening to it... every day." -Chris Henderson, 3 Doors Down. "Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music." -Vic Morgan, BBC AMY ODELL From the depths of East London a dark soulful storm is brewing in the form of alternative songstress Amy Odell. The gritty sound that emanates from her pipes has an element to it that no other brother can touch. Amy contributed a vocal guest appearance on legendary Irish musician Gavin Friday's album 'Catholic' after Gavin chose her personally to feature on the song 'Land On The Moon'. Don't be fooled by the lack of noise this siren is making. It has been a long time coming, and bubbling under the ground ready for the explosion of 2015 CHRIS PRESTON Chris is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from the Southwest of England primarily influenced by acts such as City and Colour, Daughter and Local Natives. Debut songs 'Hold on' and 'Bridges' were viewed over a thousand times each in less than 24 hours after being uploaded and and were each reposted.

Our very own Olly Andrews of Van Susans spoke to Mallory Torr at Discovery 2 a few months ago. Hear their full interview as well as Mallory's live performance on stage at Discovery 2. More about Mallory Torr Often described as ‘quirky and unusual’. Malory has a rare sound using a combination of ukulele, guitar and banjo to create her indie/pop originals. She's a prolific songwriter , in the summer of 2013 Malory was featured as‘Uncharted Territory’ artist of the week by Richard Madeley on Terry Wogan’s show on BBCRadio2. Her track ‘Heart of Gold’ was played on Dermot O’Leary’s show on BBCRadio2 in August. She was recently awarded runner up with her song ‘Utopian World’ in the national Song Academy Young Songwriter Competition 2013 Drawing upon her mixed background, having lived in both South Africa and Mexico, Malory creates music with the lyrics at the heart of every song. Her inspiration ranges from the song writing of legends, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell to the alternative styles of tUnE-yArDs, Dr Dog and St Vincent. ‘Her songs are simple but impressive with an inherent drama that calls to mind Regina Spektor…’ John Kennedy XFM - Dazed and Confused Magazine ‘Fantastic! Sings like an angel.’ Jo Good BBC London 94.9. ‘Great new talent’ Richard Madely on the Terry Wogan Show BBCRadio2
