Podcast 373 – a guided tour chez Dolly Parton!

In the event of the temporary indisposition of Mr Mark Henry Ellen his part is taken for today’s podcast by Mr Alexander Karl Gold and he and David Hepworth talk on the subject of which other songwriter-band leaders might arguably give Ray Davies a run for his money when it comes to sustained creation of brilliant singles, what it’s like to go to Dolly Parton’s home town and the contrasting accounts of the popular song experience which are available in the films “Framing Britney” and “Travelling For A Living” (https://player.bfi.org.uk/free/film/watch-travelling-for-a-living-1966-online), a 1966 film of life with the Watersons. Plus, of course, the Stackwaddy Game.
