The Afterword Podcast

This is GLK London calling the audio companion to

The sound of the waifs and strays of the Word magazine blog (RIP), musing along the byways of popular culture. We blather, you listen — that’s the deal.

Jun 24, 2014

We turn our attention to the vast and constantly evolving world of folk/rock.  Exploring its  origins, the key players, festivals, dancing and the overbearing presence of Fairport amongst many other themes,

Twang, Pencilsqueezer, Retropath2 and The Cheshire Cat explore the music which can be accurately traced to a specific day in May 1967 when skinny Londoners and slumming jazzers played John Barleycorn with a drummer and started a musical genre which thrives to this day. 

Regional accents abound. Rounds of real ale are digitally supped.  Warm bonhomie is exuded. 

We may mention Fairport.
