Longshanks in the media




In the media

May 11th 2009:
Saturday May 9th (less than 12 hours after its release) "The Bath Song" was first played by Ferry Molenaar in his show "Your Weekend Action" at ActionRadio.nl. One day later the song was played by Woody Harris in episode 155 of Soundscape.


April 8th 2009:
On 'Monday morning' April 6th, in episode 150 of Soundscape, Woody played the new track "The Wandering Merchant" for the first time on the World Wide Web. The song was preceeded by the Soundscape-jingle by Longshanks and followed by "The Travelling Song, prt.2". Right at the beginning of this series was a piece from the "Onion-News", to celebrate André's birthday.


February 27th 2009:
Sunday Februari 22nd Woody Harris celebrated the 3rd aniversary of Soundscape with a show in which he played, as he put it: "only a swath of the artists that have made the biggest difference to our little broadcast".
To our great astonishment that list included "The Web of Life"!
Replying to a thank-you-mail that André wrote to him, Woody today mailed:
"The goal was to place those people who have been strong supporters of Soundscape front and center. I was trying to follow the facebook meme of the 15 albums that influenced you, but do it for Soundscape. I am still going to attempt to make the list in the near future and place it on my facebook page. Soundscape would not be what it is without the presence of Andre in chat, and the exclusives that you guys have allowed us to play."


February 21st 2009:
Despite a delay caused by technical problems in his studio (malfunctioning graphics card) Ferry has managed to record a new episode of the FermanSow, in which "Leave Me Alone" is featured extensively! (augmented with a relevant fragment from a comedy show by Najib Amhali, and with a short excerpt of Woody's Soundscape, followed by the jingles that Longshanks has recorded for him lately).


February 11th 2009:
In last sundays episode of the internet radio show Soundscape (no. 143, Feb. 8th) Woody & Suzy Harris were the first DJ's to play the new track "Leave Me Alone", though they knew this was the 0.99-version of the final mixdown. The song was greated with enthousiasm both in chat as 'on the air'.
The show will ofcourse be available for downloading as mp3 (or streaming) from the Soundscape website.

In last nights episode of the internet radio show Soundscape (no. 122, Aug. 12th) Woody Harris picked up on the anouncement of the release of "All My Days" and during the show received an mp3 for playing. Consequently "All My Days" was played, hot from the needle, back to back with "Web of Life".

July 5th 2008:
In episode 116 of the internet radio show Soundscape (June 25th) the song "Borderline" was played because it fitted the central theme of that episode. One week later in episode 117 Woody Harris played the 2008-version of "I Have a Dream" and also used the jingle, that André had made for his show!

With the move of Ferry Molenaars "The Ferman Show" to Energy FM Longshanks' "The Web of Life" has moved along with it: in the first hour of show number 14 (April 18th) Ferry played the song again, only this time not as an mp3, but from the autographed Single-CD, which he has received for his support for Longshanks!


Februari 26th 2008:
Over the last few weeks Longshanks has been mentioned several times and played twice in the podcast by Ferry Molenaar at Boomr.nl: "The Ferman Show".
So he got the scoop on the release of "The Web of Life" and did an interview on the phone with André Kamer, to be heard in show number 7 (Dutch only...).
