Burning up

great ball of fireWant to discover some new music? Well, here's a way to get a few free CDs...

Summer Burn 06 is a kind of internet version of Noel Edmonds Multi-Coloured Swap Shop. Each year, thousands of altruistic net-musos sign up and promise to burn 2 CDs of groovy summer tunes. Then, on the summer solstice (ooooh), everyone gets sent the name of two other people from the list.

If all goes well, you send your CDs off into the great wide world and, at the same time, some kind strangers are doing the same for you.

Last year, I had to sit through some awful American soft-rock. But equally, I was introduced to the amazing Nina Gordon - whose easy-listening cover version of NWA's Straight Outta Compton is still in my ipod's top ten most played list. You can download it free from

So head over to the funjunkies website and sign up. Who knows what you might find?
