New Mixcloud Upload–Funk, Soul & Disco Sessions 5

We go back to the 60s, 70s, and 80s once again today with my sixth (yes, it is technically the sixth since one had the subtitle 'Slow Jams') Funk, Soul & Disco Sessions.

NEW MIXCLOUD UPLOAD–RANDOM HOUSE CLASSICS 12 (1995–2014)

I may not yet be ready to return to the writing game (I am trying to reignite the spark, believe me), but I have been bitten by the DJing bug and have started producing mix sessions again.

Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

I’m tying in this series to Mental Health Awareness Month as I feel the two are quite substantially linked.

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Living the Dream Part 13 (Time)

Everything these days is done against the clock. We’re all waiting for the time that something starts or ends. If not then we’ve got something on a timer. I’ve started running recently and, even though I’m doing it solely for fitness, I’ve still taken to timing myself. We’re all obsessed with time. That’s as should … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Living the Dream Part 13 (Time)
