Dutch radio special

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 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.
