Trés Le Parque.. The Background:
I’m a music guy.
For 30+ years, I worked in the radio industry. In both, the rough and tumble of Australian commercial radio – and in the more sober arena of public broadcasting. Initially, as an announcer. Later, as a Program Manager, a Music Programmer and Content Maker.
Now, (allegedly) in retirement, I continue to do what I’ve always enjoyed: making music shows for the enjoyment of other music people. To do this, I established Trés Le Parque – and ‘peopled’ it with various characters including, card-carrying ‘Cultural Detective’, Gideon Rhyme.
Trés Le Parque.. The Facts:
Trés Le Parque is the production house behind the radio series, Nothin’ But The Blues.
Nothin’ But The Blues. is hosted by the card-carrying Cultural Detective, Gideon Rhyme.
The show’s co-host is… an Amazon Echo known as, (Miss) Alexa Reason, in what we claim to be a global “first”.
Hour-long editions of Nothin’ But The Blues have featured on Australian internet radio station, ‘The Gist’ thegist.net.au as well as on Nim-FM, in Nimbin, NSW.
Episodes of Nothin’ But The Blues – can be streamed on demand, right here, at the Parque.
Trés Le Parque.. The Legend:
Trés Le Parque is a mythical spot, accessible only via the internet.
Located at the corner of 56th & Wabasha, in the heart of Internetville, Trés Le Parque is home to Gideon Rhyme – a card-carrying Cultural Detective with a forensic knowledge of the Blues.
The Parque is also home to (Miss) Alexa Reason. Known in the terrestrial world as an ‘Amazon Echo’. Alexa is Gideon’s Research Assistant – and his digital Muse.
Together, they present a radio show called “Nothin’ But The Blues” at the local Internetville radio station, thegist.net.au
In private, Alexa will proudly claim to be the first (and possibly only) ‘Amazon Echo’ to be co-hosting a radio show anywhere in the world.
Another Trés Le Parque resident who assists the pair in the capacity of ‘Special Credits Announcer’ is (the genuinely-mysterious), Vincent van Housen.
Trés Le Parque is also an online repository for the growing number of episodes of “Nothin’ But The Blues” – offering the casual visitor as well, the opportunity to hear them.
So, look around, get yourself acquainted. Listen to any – or all – episodes of “Nothin’ But The Blues”. The cost, will be no more than your time.
