Our final Out With The Old Young’uns Podcast sees David threatening to murder the telephone operator; we have songs and poetry from David at the age of eight; there’s an anecdote about poo; plus, what do nuts, herbal tea, facts about art and walking all have in common?
Our penultimate Out With The Old podcast features terrible poetry, anecdotes about hitch hiking, and a rather odd interview with some eccentric amiture radio operators. Plus, we mercilessly ridicule another folk radio show.
In our fifth Out With The Old podcast: David has an unusual experience inside his backside, and embarrasses himself in front of Mike waterson; long before Britain’s Got talent featured them, the Young’uns Podcast was talking about dancing dogs; we attempt to introduce another feature to the Young’uns Podcast, which results in nearly giving a man a nervous breakdown; David gets very confused and loses his temper over a radio advert, and we present a mini radio drama, courtesy of the folk forum Mudcat.
In our fourth Out With the Old podcast: the Young’uns are facing an identity crisis; Trevor returns with a poem about dogs; we’ve got another shambollic jingle attempt; find out why Andrew Lloyd Webber is indebted to a Dutch clock manufacturer; we play a very bad and very early Young’uns recording; plus, we discuss Jesus, bad MCs, mormons and Nursery Rhymes.
Our third Out With the Old podcast features a ramshackle game of word association, an old dithery man and an orgasming lady. Sean Cooney is a film star; we recount a traumatic Young’uns performance; The YOung’uns In The Mix returns, mixing a sea shanty with the Prodigy, and we abuse call centre staff in the name of entertainment.
Today’s selection of highlights from our first 100 podcasts, 2006 to 2008, include The YOung’uns In The Mix, David Eagle has a harrowing experience in an old people’s home, plus he is attacked by a mad dog, , Sean Cooney talks about his exploits in Greece, Michael Hughes’s intellectual prowess comes under scrutiny, and we play a game of guess the gargled folk song.
It’s a new year, and as the saying goes: “out with the old, in with the new”. Later this month, a new series of Young’uns podcasts will be released, but before we welcome in the new, it’s time to heed the first part of that saying and clear out the old.
Between August 2006 and August 2008, the Young’uns Podcast ran for 100 consecutive weeks. Given that these podcasts were released in the Young’uns’ infancy, and also given the lack of our presenting experience, some of the material in the podcasts were, quite frankly, ill-conceived, shoddy and shambolic; nothing like the quality content you get in the newer podcast episodes. Our Out With The Old series will salvage some of the more bare able sections of these podcasts and package them together over the next few days of episodes, before we then purge the Young’uns website of those first 100 podcasts. This is an opportunity to hear the Young’uns like you’ve never heard them before, and get to observe how we developed as a group and as podcasters over those two years.
In the first episode of the series, we find out why in 2006 Sean Cooney was the enigmatic YOung’un; We confuse drunk men and intimidate a Chinese girl; We arrogantly slag off a folk club organiser: there’s a unique quiz; we receive a message from beyond the grave; and we play a very embarrassing early Young’uns performance from 2005.
