Once Upon A Time, in 2019, a fledgling Hospital Disc Jockey was learning his craft in the hospital room of his friend and mentor Dead Bob Hodgkinsons. Who had been shot. Fast-forward to 2021, and he’s now in a state of the art studio with tons of kit and literally hundreds of knobs. Back then there was just a computer, a microphone, and one knob.

Hi, I’m Brian Watson, and welcome to the Remasted Bobcasts.

This edition sees us in a festive mood in December 2019. Before the world turned to shit. The lovely people at Dead Bob Productions have remastered it so it sounds as spangly as it can be for a USB microphone and iTunes operated by an ex-smoker.
