Word podcast 272 – Johnny Rogan and Sid Griffin on the extraordinary story of the Byrds

Johnny Rogan almost didn’t make it to this Word In Your Ear. He was so absorbed in a discussion about biography with friend of the podcast Mark Lewisohn that he had a small traffic accident that almost sidelined him for the evening. Anyway, he made it and brought along both volumes of his mammoth new account of their complex career. To help tell their story we were also delighted to welcome another friend of the pod Sid Griffin. It’s all here: the folk revival, Swinging London, psychedelia, square glasses, country music, personality conflicts and some very sad ends.

  1. A wonderful rambling, passionate podcast as usual. I used to live in Islington but now live in Sydney and was disapppointed not to have heard any mention of the samosas seen in in photo of the event! A crucial feature not provided to us remote listeners:-)
