Podcast 426 – Sondheim, the Band Aid recording and the first F-word on record

In which we remember being at Sarm Studios 37 years ago as Bob Geldof and Midge Ure marshalled the troops, and look at the reaction to the Get Back movie, Alan Hull, Al Stewart’s energetic love life, Billy Preston and others flown in to keep bands together, Lenny Kaye’s record-filing ruse and why John Illsey had the best job in the world. Plus the return of the Stackwaddy Game – spot the made up musical genre (Skweee, Simpsonwave, Soyabilly etc).
