I loved the chat with Michael Palin and listening to Louis Theroux just now trying to hit a high note made my day. Thank you!
Hey there Adam, I love the podcast! You mentioned merch a few weeks ago and as an ardent supporter of the jingles, how about putting an album together of them? Perhaps bandcamp.com would suit it.
Hi Adam, I just wanted to say your podcast brightens up my day, this one especially as I was feeling krank and Michael Palin is one of my favourite people.
I wonder if you've considered inviting Neil Hannon for a ramble chat? He has a new album out and is about to tour. I still remember when Vinyl Justice visited him, tee hee. Oh and what did you think of the Bowie Prom? Don't think you've mentioned it yet.. Love from Kate Snow in Berlin x
"I met Michael Palin at his club in Soho, London"... I'm imagining old men in suits sitting in tall back armchairs with broadsheet newspapers held up masking their upper body with smoke rising from cigars in ashtrays on mahogany side tables. Completely antiquated vision from my part. I just cant imagine 'gentlemen clubs' in the 21st century. I haven't listened yet to the podcast...am about to now.
A note about Comments
Hello Podcats and Blog friends,
I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.
