Insightful

While most music websites are just glorified celebrity fanzines, Barney takes us into a world he loves and knows intimately, and coaxes insight out of his guests.

The Joy Division episode - Barney H and Jon Savage shared what might be the most intelligent, honest and open-hearted conversation about the band I've ever heard

Brilliant account of darkness on the edge of Manchester

All the RBP podcasts I've heard have been lively. But the conversation with Jon Savage about Joy Division was something else. Fascinating history of Manc music scene and enlightening conversation about the brilliant life and troubled legacy of Ian Curtis. Harrowing tale redeemed by humour and lots of insight. Unmissable!
