Confusion reigns in this week’s Young’uns Podcast. David is accosted by an overly-familiar lady, and accidentally gets hitched. The Unthanks feature in The Young’uns RoadShow live from Somerset, and Artisan share an anecdote about accents. The Young’uns are depicted as cyclopses in a woman’s fantasy, we are grilled by an infant tabloid journalist, David discovers the true price of fame, and a piano gets inserted into an orifice. All that, plus proof of the existence of god, in this week’s Young’uns Podcast.
We head back to Bamfest in Bedale, which won The Young’uns award for the drunkest and most raucous audience of 2014, and, as you’ll hear in this week’s podcast, they haven’t at all mellowed, in fact, at one point an audience member offers to have David’s babies. Martin Carthy,Martin Simpson and John Tams feature in the dreams of Sean Cooney.
Michael Hughes is held hostage near Hull. Greg Russell and ciaran Algar go head-to-head in the Birthday game.
And David is high, but on what? All will be revealed in this instalment of The Young’uns Podcast.
Last week, Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal sat next to us on a plane to Portugal. This week our paths cross with Jeremy Kyle, who was recording his show opposite the BBC Radio 3 studio in which we were recording a live session. Also this week, Ciaran Algar joins us in a pub to discuss dreams, we get interrogated by some posh children, the birthday game is back, and we play a new game, Guess The Tune On The bassoon.
So far this year we’ve taken you with us to America, Canada and France, and this week we’re off to Portugal, to the Costa del Folk Festival.
Hear clips from our first ever aquatic gig, as we perform in the swimming pool, with the help of Lady Maisery – without instruments of course. Hear clips from our sangria fuelled late night gig, in which Mike Harding impersonates animals and insults the Welsh. Plus, find out what happens when Manchester United’s manager Louis Van Gaal sits next to us on the plane.
We talk to a man in a pub about beetle shit, David has a confession to make about behaving inappropriately on a bus, and the Birthday Game is back, only with a twist. All that and lots more on this edition of The Young’uns Podcast.
From Canada we headed straight to France, where we performed after fifteen hours traveling and thirty hours without sleep. This week, David attempts some french standup comedy, but gets his GCSE french a bit mixed up and inadvertently makes what might have appeared to be a pro-nazi declaration, and accidentally but frequently makes references to genitalia. All that and lots more, including music from Belgian brothers Trio Dhoore, in this week’s Young’uns Podcast from France. Download
This Canadian edition of the Young’uns Podcast contains a law breaking parrot, child-eating pagans and Bare-Breasted Motorcyclists, plus the Polish vocal quartet North Cape do an acapella version of the Game Of Thrones TV theme.
Things aren’t going too well for the Queen at the moment, what with last week’s Nazi Salute revelation, and even more upsettingly for her was the fact that last month she narrowly missed a Young’uns gig. This week we impart tales from our jaunt to Runnymede where we played at the Magna Carta event. We had some fun encounters with the police and a rather harassed Archbishop of Canterbury.
Joining us on that day was BBC Radio 2 folk award nominated Maz O’Connor, who makes some interesting noises for us and sings about a volcano.
Sean Cooney and David Eagle go head-to-head in the Birthday Game, and the Young’uns receive a couple of hauntings, from a pianist and an orphan child.
This week’s Young’uns Podcast is dedicated to the lady who nearly got sacked for listening to the Young’uns Podcast at work. She’s also started having strange David Eagle dreams.
This week, Michael and David go head-to-head in the Birthday Game. The writer Mathew Crampton joins us for our first Herbal Tea of the Week, and in addition to helping us sample and pass comment on this week’s nominated herbal brew, he talks about and reads from his two published books, The Trebor Story and Tales From the Angler’s Retreat. We’ve got clips from our gig at Cecil Sharp House in London, which received a 5-star rating in the Guardian, in spite of the riot that nearly broke out. Plus there’s music from the Cecil Sharp House Choir.
This week’s Young’uns Podcast is dedicated to the heckler who shouted out mid-gig to tell us to stop talking so much. Obviously this man lacks the cerebral capacity to comprehend the truly intellectual nature of our between-song-chats, the content of which we bring you on this week’s Podcast. Subjects include: circumcision, herbal tea, toilets and skeletons. Plus, there’s some out-of-date once-topical satire, and play along with Michael and David at guessing the age of the celebrity in the Birthday Game. And a Young’uns fan has a disturbing dream about David.
