Radio… Reviews… Interviews…

By Airplay, Interview, Music, News, Radio, Reviews

It’s been a busy few weeks. Listening to me…. reading about me… talking about me… Let me catch you up with some highlights from Radio, Reviews & Interviews!! RADIO… Houndstooth Radio – ‘Slingshot’ spinning on rotation since mid-September on one of the coolest playlists around; Houndstooth Radio. Handpicked by tastemaker DJ and programmer Kurt St. Thomas. Last time we checked (early November) ‘Slingshot’ had moved up to high rotation, getting a spin every 4 hours surrounded by the best of the best Alt and Indie Rock heroes. Lopsided World of L – ‘Sunshine’, ‘Kickin’ Doors’, ‘Slingshot’ and ‘Choking On Halos’ playlisted to air across FIVE WEEKS worth of Lopsided World of L, by radio legend Jonathon L, whose bonafide place in the history, (possibly invention of !?) Alternative Radio in the USA is verified by Wikipedia. Lopsided World of L is broadcast round the globe to 8 countries from 8 stations, with multiple repeat airings. Go Deep with Bruce Rave – Repeat plays for ‘Sunshine’ on ex Capitol Records A&R exec Bruce Rave’s syndicated weekly “Go Deep” radio show. Appearing on same playlist as David Bowie’s new single was a definite career highlight.  Just Another Menace Sunday – ‘This High’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Saviour’ and ‘Diamond’ have all enjoyed spins plus I had the pleasure of an interview with discerning San Francisco radio icon, Dennis The Menace on his syndicated weekly show Just Another Menace Sunday. LISTEN to our INTERVIEW followed by the “Musical Sandwich” I had the privilege to program for the remainder of the hour. Selecting these songs was a joyful, unexpected adventure in time travel to the centre of my psyche, where I rummaged round to find and retrieve the very building blocks that made me. REVIEWS… Rara’s Rock Farm Magazine. (FL, USA) – ‘Choking On Halos’ won a cracking album review from Rara’s Farm Rock Magazine including such generous phrases as: “Kingwell is an Aussie chanteuse just dripping with potential…”, “… worthy of significant radio play“, “… consistently strong, powerful and attention-grabbing.”, “… quite captivating…” and ” … a damn good offering in a day where solid albums from start to finish are increasingly difficult to discover.” READ the FULL REVIEW here. INTERVIEWS… All 4 The Music – “Leanne Kingwell…an Australian musical treasure!” READ the full INTERVIEW here. – The Pet Podcast Channel – Had a lovely chat to Robbin and Joseph Everett of – ‘The Pets Teach Us So Much Blog’ in Jersey about using my music to help animals. READ their BLOG POST and LISTEN to our AUDIO INTERVIEW here (chat begins @ 21:35).

The Lopsided World Of Leanne and Jonathan L

By Airplay, Music, News, Radio

Hello, Earth Radio… Jonathan L is an esteemed American DJ, who produces his radio show “Lopsided World of L” out of Berlin, broadcasting to the world via 7 stations in 7 countries each week. The show includes “Joan Jett’s Song of the Week, every week”… and how could that be anything less than cool as fuck? Jonathan L has made a career out of playing “music from artists you know and don’t for over 32 years on radio” both on air and as program director for some of the coolest American stations and shows in the history of “virgin vinyl wax attacks”. Wikipedia states that “By the late ‘90s, Jonathan L was considered a national go-to guy for alternative radio” in the USA. Wikipedia also credits Jonathan L as being “the father of all radio festivals” for organizing “one of the first large scale music festivals in the United States for alternative station KUKQ in Phoenix, Arizona in 1989, years before Lollapalooza”. He’s even rocked the world of music press as Senior Editor of music industry trade publication “Album Network”, taking control of “Virtually Alternative” magazine for many years. It’s honour to be playlisted by one such legend. It’s downright mind blowing being described by him as “an exciting young woman who has her own unique sound” with a “Damn she is good!” and a promise spanning 3 weeks worth of shows to play “3 different tracks to give you a better perspective about this Melbourne, Australia musician.” Be listening this weekend as Lopsided World of L spins SUNSHINE in the October 10-12 edition. And tune in again for the October 18 and November 1 episodes, each scheduled to feature a different track from yours truly. Jonathan L’s “Lopsided World of L” is blasted from Berlin, Germany, around the globe to: – Los Angeles, CA on Indie 103.1 – Phoenix, AZ on 93.9fm KWSS – Athens, Greece on RockXS Radio – Gothenburg, Sweden on Radio Andra – Brasov, Romania on Romanian Rock Radio, and; – Merseyside, Liverpool, England on Mersey Radio.
