Roving reporter exciting news!

Standard

Hey! Missed me? I haven’t posted some stuff in the last two days because I enjoyed the weather and also had a lovely time with friends yesterday. Now I’m busy again, writing some reviews for Background Magazine. Some reviews are also waiting to be published, and when they are I will post them here on my website too!

Now, time for some exciting news! My first, and also brand new show will be broadcast this Saturday (July 30th) on ISKC Rock Radio, at 9 PM CET (3 PM EDT)! It’s called Backstage with Iris, and contains the usual interviews and music, just like Purple Flower Progressive Hour. The interviews you will hear this Saturday are with Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson, Miles Davis), and a duo interview with Michael Bearpark (Darkroom, Tim Bowness, no-man) and Elif Yalvaç (Cloudscapes).

No worries, Purple Flower Progressive Hour will still exist, but probably as a ‘music only’ show. I’m also busy with another show named Beyond Backstage (with Iris), where you can hear interviews with people who do music-related stuff but aren’t artists. Yes, your roving reporter is pretty busy!

Well, that was it for now! Please keep an eye on the page for more exciting news! A big hug, as always!

Iris, aka Ier!
