    Over Our Garden Wall. Episode 13. Part 3. Duglas T Stewart. 1969. Apple Music Podcast Version

    Part 3 of our 1969 music podcast with BMX Bandit & all round good guy Duglas T Stewart.  The full podcast including all songs chosen by Duglas can be heard on Spotify ( search Over Our Garden Wall). However, if you cant access Spotify - this is a copy of all the chat from the podcast. You can of course listen to Duglas's songs on Apple Music too, just not on this Podcast ! Apologies for this, and hopefully one day we can publish in full on Apple as we do on Spotify

    Not sure how we managed to get to this point....however, part 3 of our 1969 podcast with Duglas T Stewart takes us to the end of our ' greatest music year' discussions. 13 guests, 12 years, over 180 songs. ( remember there is a connected playlist of all the songs on Spotify. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/44oIevVwpOcofskjhq9LUX?si=96c8fc56d24744da) Plus more cool chat than you can shake a stick at.

    And we go out in style, with 3 songs that sum up how eclectic our guests selections have been over the years chosen. Duglas talks about his love for Francoise Hardy ( hear hear), the legend that is Mary Hopkin, ( and how she is directly connected to Beatles 69 and Bowie 76), and we finish with a lovely discussion about the relative merits of the various Bonds ( Duglas opts for George Lazenby which ties in quite nicely to our chat about 1969). It also allows us to bow out with the perfect final song for all our podcast years, from Louise Armstrong.

    The final line from the biggest selling album of the year from the greatest band ever (?) sums it up better than either me or McD can.... "And, in the end - the love you take, is equal to the love you make". Over and out. Enjoy, and as ever, stay safe. BD & McD.

    All our podcasts have great tunes - so does this one. However, none to date have managed to tell a story that connects our guest with Noel Edmonds, Grange Hill & Ennio Morricone. Duglas achieved this feat, whilst also knocking out a couple more tunes on the kazoo! You couldn't make it up.

    Enjoy & stay safe. BD & McD.

    When we started out doing these ' greatest years' podcasts, we thought that getting 12 guests to talk about their favourite year for popular music would be difficult but worth aiming for. Our last podcast with George Paterson got us to that number, and we have had more listens than we could ever have dreamed of! However, sticking to the old adage that the harder your try the luckier you get.....we now have a Baker's Dozens of guests ;-)
    Duglas T Stewart, founding member of BMX Bandits, dreamer and all round national treasure,  is our 13 guest, and spent the best part of 3 hours in our company one Zoom night a couple of months ago. We talked about anything and everything - and from that we have managed to put together a three part podcast covering a couple of hours worth of the chat, and more importantly the tunes. In part one, we get tunes from the likes of The Beach Boys, Harpers Bizarre & Rod McKeun. Connected to these Duglas gives some very personal reflections about why 1969 is so important to him, and throws in a couple of killer anecdotes ( the Brian Wilson/Don Henley one is a belter). We also managed to connect Grange Hill and Robinson Crusoe to the year too, and the kazoo made a number of guest appearances.
    Enjoy part 1 - there is plenty more to come. Stay safe. BD & McD

    Over Our Garden Wall - Episode 12. Part 2. George Paterson. 1983. Apple Music Podcast Version

    Part 2 of our 1983 music podcast chat with the writer and musician George Paterson. George gives us 5 more top notch tunes from the likes of Bowie, Aztec Camera & Malcolm McLaren, and of course we manage to cover a lot of ground on the chat - that includes George nailing a couple of karaoke covers, and also discussing how tight (and small) Charlie Burchill of Simple Minds is ( allegedly). McD is posted missing from most of part 2, which was a shame on the night, however has helped to keep the length of the podcast down! Really enjoyable to finally do a year from the 1980s, and George was the perfect guest. Enjoy and stay safe. BD & McD

    After trying for 11 episodes, we finally made it to the 1980's, and it was well worth the wait! Our guest is the singer, musician, writer and part time DJ George Paterson, who recently released the acclaimed debut novel The Girl The Writer, The Writer & The Fighter. George chose 1983 as his favourite year and its a belter. In Part 1, we get tunes from some of Glasgow and Liverpool's finest ( Orange Juice and Pete Wylie among them), plus a Parissiene classic from Mr Weller. McD was posted missing for most of the recording due to a house flood minutes before we went on air - however he chips in now and again, and George delights us with great stories we can broadcast ( his dad met Elvis Presley) and great stories that we cant (saving them for the book of the podcast) .....enjoy and stay safe.

    Part 2 of our 1967 discussion with Jonathan from The Gracious Losers/Sister John. Great songs to chat about are a given ( Dylan, Simone and Smokey Robinson amongst others). You also get Dylan inventing Americana, Jonathans fav family pastime ( re-creating album covers), why Rex Harrison is the greatest singer ever, and BD& McD insisting that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a Disney film ( it isn’t) . Thanks again to Jonathan, great fun. Enjoy and stay safe . BD & McD
