The Southside Podcast ran for 102 episodes between 2007 and 2010. It comprises interviews with a varied collection of interesting folk and an array of celebrities including, Sir Patrick Moore, Sir Jimmy savile, Nicholas Parsons and David Vine. We also had regular contributors such as television director Graeme Harper, who is the only person to have worked on both the old series and the new incarnation of Doctor who, as well as directing Torchwood and Robin Hood. . David Eagle also provides a mix of one-off features, radio dramas, sketches, song parodies and games, as well as annoying the station manager by talking a lot and often mercilessly picking holes in the station’s output.
You can read more about the concept behind the podcast, as well as how and why it met its demise in this blog post.
