Last Chance to See (well, hear!)

Hi all,

We have decided to remove the first two episodes from the feed. Although the content is great, the audio quality of the episodes are not, and if a new subscriber starts with these we are worried that it may put them off!

The first two episodes will be available until Friday, 6th October, at which point we will be archiving them. You can download them via the feed, or click on the following links to download them direct:
Episode #1
Episode #2

If you want to download the whole set manually, go ahead, here are the other three:
Episode #3
Episode #4
Episode #5

Happy listening!

Join us in Leeds for the Shindig!

The Leeds Shindig that we mentioned in the last show is happening on Saturday, 7th October. Attendees are meeting at the Wokmania Restaurant in Leeds City Centre (see the map above) at midday (for directions click here) The full address is Park Plaza Hotel, 1, City Square, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 5NS. They will then be moving on to the Firefly Bar (yes, there really is a bar called the Firefly Bar, how cool is that?) They will be there until about eight o’clock. The full address for the Firefly Bar is 21, Park Row, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS1 5JF. Click here for a map.

Sending a Wave will be there covering the event and hopefully talking to as many of the fans as possible. Presenters Toni Myers, Wendy Scott and new presenter Mike Greaves will be there, as well as Andrew, their “Tech Guy”.

So, if you want to attend, just turn up at Wokmania for midday and at the Firefly Bar after about one. We hope to see as many people there as possible!

Episode #5 Online…

Yes, we sort of planned this, but weren’t sure that it would work out, so we didn’t tell you all (there’s nothing worse than promising an episode and not delivering!)

In this episode, we feature a couple more interviews from the Serenity 3 convention, Wendy and Toni look back at the Con, and as well as a brief news roundup we also introduce Mike, a male voice to add into the mix! (That’s him on the left, with Wendy on the right. That’s Toni in the middle, courtesy of Skype!)

By and large, the episodes will now come out monthly, with the next one scheduled for early October (we will give you an exact date nearer to the time).

You can download episode #5 by clicking here. If you want to subscribe to the feed via iTunes, open iTunes then click here. Please send us feedback or voicemails at wave@futilityradio.com.

Serenity 3 update

Hi

The convention has ended! And what a convention it’s been; the organisor, Sean Harry and the Starfury team have outdone themselves on this occasion.

We’ve had a great time talking to as many fans as would speak to us – thank you very much.

We’re tired and there is still much drinking to be done.

Listen, enjoy and we hope we’ve been able to give a soundbite to the weekend.

Here’s to Serenity 4 in Glasgow in March 2007!

CHEERS

Serenity 3

Hi Everyone

As you have read from the other blogs, Toni and I are at Serenity 3 over the weekend. Unfortunately (as they tend to) things haven’t exactly gone to the all-so-glorious plan that we had worked out beforehand. The main culprit has been alcohol – I was up until 2am after consuming a fair amount of beer and champagne (and almost managing to get chucked out of the con’s “meet and greet”). Toni has been more sedate, crashing out just before midnight (how she’s going to cope at DragonCon 2007 is a complete mystery to me!), but I think she could have drank more than me – she certainly was drunk before I was! We are taping fan reactions and some fan interviews, but we are respecting Starfury policy of not recording any of the guest talks.

We have had three guest surprises during the convention: Michael Fairman – yes, Niska himself, Nector Rose – Lenore in “SERENITY” and Christina Hendricks – Saffron, thankfully we didn’t scare her off as Serenity 2 was her first convention. All the guests have given entertaining talks on the first full day of the con and we expect the second day (Sunday) to be no different.

Unfortunately, Morena is having to leave this evening due to work requirements and everyone is agreed that it was great that she still agreed to join us.

At this stage we are still planning on “something” live-ish during the con – stay tuned!

Wendy
