Dutch radio station VPRO Radio6 is planning a Tom Waits Glitter & Doom special. Reason enough to tune in or listen online to Shouting Boots on December 12th (21-24hrs, local time), but what's more: you can be part of it thanks to a cover competition.
Just mail an mp3 file of your very own Waits cover (new and previously unreleased, of course) to firstname.lastname@example.org and you might get invited to the studio. Or you might just win a copy of the upcoming Orphans vinyl box signed by Tom Waits himself. No need to worry about the quality of the recording or style of your rendition, in true Waits-style, everything is allowed: lo-fi big bands or digital flute meisters, just have a shot at it.
The producers are also looking for a Dutch-speaking woman who wants to be part of the Waits panel/jury on the show. If you're interested and are able to make it to the studio on the evening of December 12th, contact me.
