Just me with a small update again!


Hey hey! I actually wanted to post a brand new album review today, but I found out that today is also the last day to update Windows to Windows 10! … So yeah, I’m actually busy trying to get Windows 10 on my PC. I thought it would be very simple, but my computer is not really cooperating at the moment (grrrr)!

Well, what I do have to say is that you REALLY SHOULD NOT FORGET to tune in tomorrow for my VERY FIRST SHOW on ISKC Rock Radio! The interviews you will hear are with Adam Holzman (Steven Wilson, Miles Davis), and a duo interview with Michael Bearpark (Darkroom, Tim Bowness, no-man) and Elif Yalvaç (Cloudscapes). The show starts at 9 PM CET (which is 3 PM EDT, 12 PM PDT, 8 PM UK Time). There’s also a chat room that you can join here, and I will be there too of course!

I also made an event page for it on Facebook, go click on the link for more info (and don’t forget to click on ‘Interested’ or ‘Going’, so that you will get a notification an hour before the show starts): https://www.facebook.com/events/1568487020119639/

A big hug from your roving reporter!

A big update from your roving reporter!


Hey hey! ‘sme with some news again. As you may know, I’ve left House of Prog recently (if you haven’t read my statement yet, you can read it here). I got a lot of responses and sweet messages (mostly on Facebook) from friends, colleagues, readers, listeners, and even artists! I would like to thank everyone for their support, it means a lot to me!

While I left House of Prog I took some time to think. In the meantime several people of different radio stations and websites approached me, and I can’t thank them enough!

I would like to thank Ronald Krauwel of ISKC Rock Radio for making me part of the radio team! I’m already a frequent listener of several shows on ISKC Radio. I approached Ronald and asked if he was interested in my show, and he was! I’m considering doing a brand new show for my interviews, but I still need to think what’s best for it. I was also planning to do another new show as well, which I mentioned a few weeks earlier. I will let you know when I finally have everything sorted out.

Also a big thank you to Brad Birzer who made me part of the Progarchy team! I always love to read the latest news and reviews on their website, and now being part of the team is something very special!

Well, time for me to get things sorted out and to provide you more amazing stuff in the near future!

A big hug!

Hey, ‘sme again with a small update!

No worries if you can’t make it to the live show, I will post the interview on Mixcloud and this website the same evening!

Well, what to expect more? I’m going to interview Craig Blundell this Monday if everything goes well, and will also interview Roine Stolt later that week! Yes, you can say I’m pretty busy with interviews! Also expect more album reviews and more interviews this week, so please keep an eye on the page!

By the way, my website is getting more and more traffic over the months, which makes me very happy of course. Still, most people don’t know they can follow all my latest news by subscribing to my webpage, or to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. You can find me here:
