It’s that time again. Two years ago I made a celebratory Ogg-Cast in honour of being about to go wandering in Cornwall, and even included a cryptic shot of Cligga Head in the evening, with the intention of being there to replicate it. So, guess where I’m going this time?

The smallest of the six Celtic Nations it may be, but the Isle of Man has its own character, its own language, and plenty of sights to see. Plus, as there can’t be anyone who isn’t aware, every year a ton of motorbikes race around its speed-derestricted roads. I’m going for the sights rather than the bikes this year, but I suspect both should be possible at some stage. This show, as I’m sure you can guess, has as many references to the Isle of Man as I could fit in. And, of course, all the usual bits and pieces; I need not say, for instance, who this month’s cover version is dedicated to, as it’s June and it should be obvious. There’s also a warm-up for Hellfest, which I’ll be off to in a few days! So you know what next month’s show will be about.

After the event: as everyone has come to expect, I wrote an extensive tour diary of the five days I spent on the Isle of Man, even if it took until August to finish it. And at over 38,000 words, it is not a trivially short read!
