250th EDITION! Mark Ellen and David Hepworth of A Word In Your Ear join us

Crossover Episode! Our old bosses MARK ELLEN and DAVID HEPWORTH of A Word In Your Ear, Smash Hits, Q and Mojo fame join Siân and Andrew to mark our quarter century. On the agenda: the glory days of the Hits and why the music biz didn’t know how much it would miss the pop mags. “PAUL WELDER”’s new album. The Incredible String Band, Half Man Half Biscuit, Girl Band, Fargo on C4 and that BBC Mitford thing. Van Morrison’s harmonica redux. And “much, much more”! 

Thanks to everyone who’s backed us and been on the podcast so far. It’s been a blast. Here’s to the next 250…
