The wait is finally at an end. The Young’uns podcast is back for another series. Over the course of the next few weeks we’ll take you with us to Canada, Belgium, Australia, and all around the UK. We’ll be playing you some of the more interesting bits that happened between the songs at our gigs. We’ll be chatting with and hearing music from lots of our folky friends . And we’ve got some new exciting features, as well as the return of some of the tried and tested classics.
This week we’re in Sheffield, in front of a live audience, with special Sheffield guests Roy Bailey and Neil McSweeney. Now 82, Roy looks back at his sixty years of singing folk songs, and shares stories about his friendship and collaboration with Tony Ben, and talks about his decision to hand back his MBE. Sheffield singer songwriter Neil McSweeney takes us to a land of cocaine and orgiastic revelry. As well as singing and chatting, Roy and Neil battle for glory in an epic game of Space Attack. All that and a lot more will grace your ears when you stream or download this instalment of The Young’uns Podcast. Thanks also to Paul Foster from Colchester for helping with this week’s Young’uns Podcast introductory jingle.
