ANDY KERSHAW PODCAST 28 – SHORT (FREE) VERSION
This is the free-for-all version, featuring a kitchen session with Leeds rockers The Burner Band. We’ve got boogie, country, Africana, Americana, folk, soul and gospel. Warning: this podcast is addictive.
Andy Kershaw Podcast 27 – short (free) version
This is the free-for-all version, featuring folk music royalty Eliza Carthy and Jon Boden, playing songs from their new album of wassailing wonderments and telling stories. Plus lots of tracks I hope you’ve never heard before but will love for ever more.
ANDY KERSHAW PODCAST 26 FREE VERSION
This is the free-for-all version, featuring my brand-new kitchen session with Martin Stephenson (plus one Daintee) and some of the greatest cover-versions you’ll ever hear. The Rolling Stones sing the Temptations, while the Persuasions sing the Impressions. You are invited to marvel at the segues.
ANDY KERSHAW PODCAST 25 - FREE VERSION
This is the free-for-all version, featuring part one of my tribute to my friend Brendan Croker, who died last month. I’m sharing a session I recorded in 1998 with Brendan and his fellow Notting Hillbilly Steve Phillips.
ANDY KERSHAW PODCAST 24 - PART ONE
This is the free-for-all, sixty-minute version in which I dig out a rare Richard Thompson recording that will blow your socks off, and ask whether anyone ever played Springsteen better than Bruce (I have a candidate for your consideration). Lots more to entice and delight, but just wait until you hear…
ANDY KERSHAW PLAYS SOME BLOODY GREAT RECORDS - PODCAST 23
This is the free-for-all, sixty-minute version. Among other jewels, you’ll hear part of my 1990 session recording with The Jolly Boys from Port Antonio, Jamaica – and I’m hoping you’ll want more. Founded in 1945, this mento combo may be the longest-lasting little band in the world - only the line-up has changed! Go to www.andykershaw.co.uk, chip in a few quid and become a patron to hear the full two hour version of this podcast.
It’s what radio *can* be
So great to listen again to AK after many years. His enthusiasm and insights are wonderful. A treat for any music fan
Best music podcast out there
Why the BBC isn’t begging him to come back I do not know.
A real treat to hear Andy Kershaw sharing his passion for music once again. I haven't listened to Andy present a music show for a long time but he's hit the ground running and its as if he never stopped. So much great music that seemed to have lost its platform after Andy depated from the beeb. Fantastic to hear it again and enjoy his personal anecdotes about the music and artists he's playing. A truly great podcast and well worth chipping in a bit of cash through Podbean to keep it going.
