I don’t know if this is old news to Afterworders or Massive? (I’ve been away for awhile) but this podcast by ex-Melody Maker scribes I cannot recommend enough. I’m sure some of their attitudes and opinions will seriously wind up a few parishioners here no end but the show is absolutely hilarious, incisive, scabrous, affectionate, passionate, witty, but above all very knowledgeable about popular music of our mispent youth.
Each week Al Needham picks a random episode of Top Of The Pops and a duo of fellow MM ex-journos perform an autopsy on it. They had a minor audio problem in ep 1 and were finding their feet but stick with the series and you will be rewarded with podcast gold.
Old names you may recall from the inkies join in the fun like Simon Price, Taylor Parkes, David Stubbs, Neil Kulkarni, Sarah Bee and more…
It’s like the angrier, snottier younger sibling of the old Word podcast.
I am not in any way affiliated with it. BTW
