In a recent trend of birds on the cover is The Telephones' The Bridge mini-album. The album is in the middle of a final mix for CD pressing, but we were sent some demos (they sound good the way it is, to be honest), which we've used throughout this interview.
Joining us are: singer Andy Richardson, guitarist Jay Marriott, and bassist Gary "Gaz" Sitlinton, along with W♥M jazz contributor Dave.
As showrunner, I wanted to let you know that there are two distinct segment of this episode: a topic-centric/controlled portion (the standard interview) and a casual portion (which is just a few people sitting around talking about music). I do recommend hanging in there for the second part to hear some 90s flashback.
It was a lot of fun to do these band interviews, so maybe if we can co-ordinate it... Unfortunately, it seems I am only free on Sunday to do these setup. Hopefully, when Derek gets set up, he would be taking over as showrunner/MC for non-Sundays podcasts.
Speaking of which, if we can get our act together, next week, Derek and I will be doing a special "bookcast" edition of W♥M Radio. I'm very excited to be discussing books, so stay tune.
