May we...

OK folks, a bit of an update as by now you are probably wondering-

'What was I supposed to be listening to this week?'

Having taken stock over the last week, looked at diaries, timescales and availability (and calmed down from that sunny Easter holiday period) we have decided on an alternative plan for The Album Club schedule.

The next recording session for The Album Club will be pushed back to the 5th June (with a Moon Fest Theme).

The planned session focused on a Heavy Metal album/Ben Venom exhibition will move to a July slot (his exhibition runs until the 8th Sept) which gives us more time to plug in some of our DJs who specialise in that kind of music, build our promotions and give the poll a good run-in time.

The meeting scheduled for May 8th is still left in the diary as a 'meet up' for volunteers and more of a 'social' in the bar area at MAC Birmingham. Come along and give us your feedback so far, ideas on branding & promotion and see how we might develop The Album Club.

See...there is a plan.

'Thank 'eavens!' as Maurice might say.

New name...same great taste

What's in a name?

Ask Arnold George Dorsey. 

After some feedback and discussion with a number of those wonderful people who have helped us get this far, we are re-branding the show slightly. From May 2019 'The Old Voluntary Album Test' will become 'The Album Club'

Things will shift gradually in time for our next meet on Wednesday 8th May 2019 @6 pm.

It's just till these tears have dried...

It was a close one! But following two separate twitter polls and a coin toss the next album for discussion is: 

Back to Black by Amy Winehouse (2006).

All the volunteers who have signed up for the session to date have been sent a briefing about the next steps and their homework for our meeting on Wednesday 10th April 2019 at 6 pm at The MAC (Pinsent Mason Room 1).

But- Don't worry if you haven't signed up yet- you can still come along to watch and get involved.

Have you got an interesting fact, memory or story about this album? 
Let us know and we'll try and work it into the discussion.
