Podcast 374 – happy 50th, Nick Drake and the Stones ‘farewell’ tour!

In which we try the Obama/Springsteen pod, view astonishing footage of Sinatra recording in 1965, watch films we’ve never seen (eg “Life Of Brian” – merchandise at the stoning scene? “Two rocks and a bag of gravel”), remember the Stones’ satin-clad tax-dodging flit to the south of France, applaud the greatest one-man albums ever made, and play ‘Children’s book or rare psychedelic single?’, ‘European rave palace or Gwyneth Paltrow lifestyle accessory’ and ‘Spot the fake DJ’ (Spinston Churchill?).

One thought on “Podcast 374 – happy 50th, Nick Drake and the Stones ‘farewell’ tour!”

  1. Speaking of classics unmatched or unlistened to (I haven’t seen Life of Brian) … can we challenge Mark to listen to Side 2 of the Band’s second album? He must have heard it in bits or on live albums. I would love to hear his response after holding out so long, worried it would disappoint.
