It’s a decidedly healthy Young’uns Podcast this week, as we talk nutrition with Sam Pirt from the Hut People, and there’s live sporting action with commentary and interviews from a John Ball event in Minneapolis USA. Sadly, it’s not such a healthy picture for a certain cat who sullied last week’s Young’uns gig at the Hardraw Folk Festival. Music comes from the Hut People and Gilmore & Roberts.
This week is a Bob Fox themed Young’uns Podcast, with two live songs and an interview with the man himself. We talk to him about the Radio Folk Ballads, playing the part of Songman in the award winning, critically acclaimed theatrical interpretation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel War Horse, and we also chew the cud about TV comedy. Plus we’ve a selection of Bob Fox themed clips from Young’uns gigs, taken from this year’s Chippenham Folk Festival and Bedale Acoustic Music Festival. Other subjects include Cats with Parkinson’s disease, the Pope and the sexuality of Sean Cooney.
This week’s special guest is nineteen year old, BBC Radio 2 folk award nominated singer and guitarist Sunjay Brayne who joins us live to chat and play us a couple of songs.
The Young’uns form an unexpected connection with American students. Never mind Sing John Ball, how about Play John Ball? We speak with John Hilsen from Minnesota as we reveal the circumstances that united us.
Plus we discuss eccentric amateur radio operators and who the Young’uns physically resemble.
