    'The Time-Zone Frequency' w/ Mary Kiani

    Today we call Australia to speak to the voice of a generation Mary Kiani who is a 90s dance music ICON with her solo records and her work with The Time Frequency. One of the best conversations we have ever had on this show for sure and to balance things out we also cover an Australian band in Glasgow in the shape of Amyl & the Sniffers. I give my review of that and explain how I ended up locked out my house in a pair of jammies and slippers with two pizza boxes.

    We start today's show with a quick review of 'Spaceships Over Glasgow' by Stuart Braithwaite, 'Almost Home' by Mima Merrow and the 'This England' TV show. 2/3 of these helped me recover from a serious case of man-flu this week and helped ease me into sober october. This week's main event is a conversation from July 2022 with synth-pop punk icon Manda Rin of bis who were the first unsigned band to play Top of the Pops and are celebrating their latest album with a UK tour in October (dates below) .  They made some epic hits including 'Kandypop' and 'Eurodisco' which saw them sell over 100,000 albums in their first week in Japan alone.

    'The Inner Rebellion' with 'The Mad Chef' Danny McLaren

    'The Inner Rebellion' with 'The Mad Chef' Danny McLaren

    Since Christmas time can be a tough time at the best of times , I thought I would share a positive and uplifting conversation I had earlier this year with Danny 'The Mad Chef' McLaren where we discuss the great outdoors, meditation, breathing, psychedelics and much, much more. Danny runs a project called 'The Inner Rebellion' which does various things like meditation at sunrise in pollok park , weekends away to Arran and online get-togethers. Danny became famous as the mad chef in Bloc where has Buckfast ice cream became a viral sensation as part of a Vice documentary. He is also a content creator, producer, DJ, chef, and most recently started a BBC pilot show called 'The Scran Van' . He is someone who has completely turned his life around and now by sharing his wisdom is now helping others. I hope this chat can give you a sprinkle of good vibes this Christmas especially all the patreons who have supported us in 2021 at http://patreon.com/youcallthatradio

    'The Corner of Most States' w/ Daniel Wylie (Cosmic Rough Riders'

    Having been a fan since I saw him promote his 'Enjoy the Melodic Sunshine' album at T in the Park in another lieftime it was a pleasure to finally meet up in real life and get a chat about his career in the Cosmic Rough Riders and as an esteemed and well respected solo artist. Some excellent chat about the writing process, why he doesn't gig anymore and a few jaw dropping namedrops for good measure. Thanks to Ashtronomik and Praize for letting us record in the studio, Morhamish for mastering the audio and Jon the Hat for filming for the interview which should appear on our youtube channel one day soon over at http://youtube.com/youcallthatradio . That is also the place to go for much more content than our podcast platforms as we are about to celebrate 350 live streams since lcokdown began in march 2020.
