First of all can we wish you all a very Happy New Year. We are here once more for another years fun and games, delving into peoples souls and generally up to mischief. To be honest it was touch and go if we were to continue with yet another year, but as I enjoyed it so much last year I find myself typing once more into 2011. My first venture this year was meeting a voluptuous young woman called Shell Zenner, and as her name suggests she is quite the funky, lively young woman. Check out my interview, complete with photoshoot.
Also pleased to let you know that I am almost at the end of the Annual Interview book, which should be self published (non profit) by Lulu.com within the next month (fingers crossed)! Just a few bits and bats to finish off and we'll be getting this out for general release.
We can now reveal that our new, fresh and funky contributor is Shell Zenner from Salford City Radio and Chimp Magazine. Shell's no newbie to interviewing or churning out reviews and she will be talking about her month in music, recommended listening and other delights.
Whilst we are team talking, Jean Encoule bounces back and we have a new interviewer on board, with an American flavour - to be revealed soon.
