Episode 4 – Special Guest Appearances

by | Nov 10, 2021 | 0 comments

We review rock climbing documentaries The Dawn Wall and Free Solo, Icelandic noir series Trapped, books on the Beatles, a Paul McCartney podcast,  the Last Night in Soho film, and trail a book and a film about Pogues singer Shane MacGowan. We talk about our favourite special guest appearances, and those of our listeners.

Scarlett Johansson was pretty special. Were Van Morrison’s special guests actually special? Is Dave Grohl the new Ronnie Wood? Who DIDN’T join Stevie Wonder on stage for his birthday? Old school rockers Jimmy Page and Dave Gilmour butt in with Aerosmith and Bombay Bicycle Club. Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook sing harmonies from heaven. And more!

Listen now!
