Billy’s Bostas - Volume 1
Bostas was an idea I had along with John Langford to support the Buskin' Charity work we do under the Banner of Black Country Radio and the Omma N Chain Show. We literally have 100s of tracks that are sent to us or are recorded live that we use on the show!
With the help of people like Dave Coughlin , Pete Wain, and others we decided each year to sell alongside our Buskin events we would produce a CD of 'gifted tracks’ from local artists who have been part of the events. Some of the charities we have helped include Parkinsons UK (Black Country and Birmingham), Autism West Midlands, and Action Heart ( Dudley).
Although the CDs are made specifically for our main yearly charity push (this year 2019) it is the Russell Hall Diabetes Unit, we do sell them at any charity event we maybe supporting. Alex Vann amends the generic artwork and we try and include as much variety as possible. We are now on Bostas 5 and they show no signs of slowing down.
