Pete into Orbit – Guest on Twitter Tuesday Live 20th December 2011

Talk about The Fast and the Furious!!! Wow…..todays show was just that! So much going on and so little time to fit everything in to today’s show! I’m still trying to calm down now! Pete from PETE INTO ORBIT (Formerly known as The Pete Walter Band) from London UK joined us for what was another great TWITTER TUESDAY LIVE!  He has the most wonderful British accent and unlike Mark and I can actually pronounce foreign words correctly! He sure made a few more fans today


Before Pete joined us on the show Mark was telling everyone about his birthday weekend in Vegas where he met country singer BILLY KAY! Seriously he is like a little kid sometimes!


Apart from me sounding like I have a really bad lisp again, the show was awesome! We had listeners from all over the world tuned into the show today and I think we had at least 3 continents covered!


Mark was so happy when Pete explained the reason why the band changed their name, it has been bugging him for weeks! That’s when the puns came out on the space themes! Lol

PETE INTO ORBIT – consists of 5 members and like our show they are from all different parts of the world, a real multi-cultural band…and you have to hear the podcast to hear how Pete actually pronounces the names!!!


Apart from Kermit and the Muppets being brought up again and me getting upset because people keep saying he is not real, we talked about the band, their music, their mini videos and he was very willing to answer the questions that we threw at him, including a moral dilemma that was a bit of fun to ask him!


My only regret is that we never got to meet the other members of the band that make PETE INTO ORBIT complete, however maybe next time!


Seriously our show is only as good as our guest and today was no exception! Pete was awesome, so much fun! However the only way you can enjoy the show is to hear it for yourself from here:


As always on Twitter Tuesday Live we feature 3 songs from our guest, and these are the ones from PETE INTO ORBIT that we showcased:


TROUBLING ME –An upbeat catchy song about all life’s little frustrations catching up with you.


ACHE IN MY HEART –A ballad all about a guy who’s realised he make the wrong decision splitting up with his girl and thinking about what he can do to make things better again,


WHATS CHANGING –Inspired by Ancient Greek Historian Plutarch’s series of ‘parallel lives’, it’s a little meditation on how all human behaviour is cyclical and not a lot really changes.
