The best accompaniment to an album there could be

Have absolutely loved the podcast and have learned so much about varied and fascinating people, and about Frank! It completely enhanced all the music and I thoroughly enjoyed waiting for the next one to drop each week so that I could get to grips with each song in turn and each song is all the more memorable for it. Would highly recommend

A different side to history

Really enjoyed these pods and now we have the album it brings the music to life. I’ve learned a lot and think I need wander round some of the places in London to add further context. What will I listen to now on my runs as the series comes to an end? The music of course! Thanks Frank for such an informative few weeks and the great music 😀
