    'Pollok, Prison & Parliament' w/ Rosie Kane

    'Pollok, Prison & Parliament' w/ Rosie Kane

    I think my first memory of Rosie was her having my 'My oath is to the people' written on her hand as she made her first appearance in parliament. She also made headlines by going to Cornton Vale prison for refusing to pay a fine she received for her anti-nuclear protest outside parliament. Other controversies included protesting G8 on the floors of parliament, Going to Cuba and nearly getting a winch of Fidel Castro, Being a member of the Pollok Free State and the infamous Tommy Sheridan- News of the World scandal but these days she performs a dramatic and funny one woman show mixing comedy and storytelling called 'A Work in Protest' Ticket`s for You Call That Radio's GRATITUDE & ATTITUDE show here: https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Glas...

    today we interview a true hip hop legend , Slug of Atmosphere fame as they prepare to promote their incredible new album 'So Many Realities Exist Simutaneously' on Rymesayers Entertainment with a European tour. Slug is one of my favourite writers and performers in rap music so it meant a lot for him to stop by. He has created classics and collaborated with everyone from Aesop Rock, KRS One, Brother Ali, Eyedea, MF Doom, Sage Francis to namedrop just a few. While we speak with music royality I give a brief insight into my opinion in Prince Charles coronation as well.

    'The Social Distance Between Us' w/ Darren 'Loki' McGarvey (Online Q & A)

    'The Social Distance Between Us' w/ Darren 'Loki' McGarvey (Online Q & A)

    Recorded in the summer of 2022 but previously only available on youtube.  I thought it was time for our audio podcast listeners to hear this online Q and A from orwell prize winning author , cultural commentator and veteran Scottish rapper Darren McGarvey aka Loki. He was about to release his 2nd book 'The Social Distance Between Us' and his 'Darren McGarvey's Addictions' TV show which both went onto win awards and seen him go onto his current sold out UK tour plus be interviewed by the likes of Frankie Boyle & The Blindboy Podcast. Darren has also started his own podcast/ youtube show called 'Darren McGarvey's Common People' so I thought I would let you podcast people know all about it as I think if you like and liosten to YCTR this is a thing you will also enjoy. Thanks to Morphamish for mixing and mastering the audio. The show begins with an apology ahead of You Call That Radio's 4th birthday party featuring Gasp, Doghouse, Doss & The Twistettes.

Get this in yer lugs!

Dafternoon Troopadors! YOU CALL THAT RADIO is an Awesome podcast / radio show, great banter skits and interesting interviews with amazing Scottish, UK & International music acts. I Love the Frank Foodie skits when he called up Pot Noodle, I was laughing my head off at work. Having a familiar scottish twang in my ears when I'm on my cherry picker makes the day better and go faster so thanks for the laughs and insights. Keep the episodes coming, I'm about 5 deep and can't get enough. A+++++

The stuff of legend

I highly recommend this show if you are in anyway serious about fun. Don’t think about it, just get subscribed. Mark has developed a format that entertains and informs, while striking a balance of opinion on the important going’s on in this crazy place we call the web! Is it radio or is it a podcast?? The beauty is, you decide!

Another five stars for YCR! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Belated review

Finally ... I have figured out how to do a review! These podcasts are the highlight of my week. I work as a delivery driver and these episodes make the driving an absolute pleasure. The banter is first rate. Frank Foodie is so funny I have to be careful not to crash. The serious parts are very important too. Everyone should subscribe. Love, love, love.
