P.S. I'd like to say that no TV Smith's were harmed over the course of this research, but he did react adversely to Millie, our long-haired cat.
TV SM!TH - for the beer and the company! (AND great songs too!)

Ian Hunter on Danny Baker yesterday - just over an hour into the show if streaming or you can download the podcast:

Thanks Fred.

Hunter is always good for a story and Baker is ideal at creating the enthusiasm required to coax the bon mots (see what I did there?! ;)) from his interviewee. The pleasure tends to emanate from the small things: Baker (and, presumably, anyone else listening with a pulse) delights in tales of the wearing of high heels, The Joy Of Checks, Baker's naivety regarding Hunter's sobriety during gigs...half an hour just flew most pleasingly by.

Well worth a listen, even if you're not a fan  :)

I see that a 'Mott the Hoople' trio are playing some shows this year:
