Mick and Nathan reflect on the past, the present and the future. Brian Kennedy solves racism the only way he knows how, and a sneak-peek exclusive at one of Mick's awesome audio sketches he's been working on to hopefully lift everyone's spirits.

 

Just want to stick an extra message in here to say we're both so thankful to have such a great community of sound bastards such as you wonderful people who listen along every week. At a time when the world seems to be eating it's own asshole, it's comforting to know that there's great people like all you out there, tipping the scales in favour of the good guys. Hope everyone is well. M&N x

April 24, 2020

WE MADE IT BABY!

Here on our 100th episode, Mick and Nathan are joined by Northern Ireland's very own, Music-Promoter in chief, Joe Dougan of 'Shine'. If you've been to a big gig in Belfast that you really loved in the last decade, there's a pretty good chance Joe Dougan made it happen.

Joe was kind enough to sit down with us on an absolutely freezing day a few months ago and tell us about what he does and how he got there. We learned an awful lot on this episode, and you definitely will too.

It's a fun one, hope you all enjoy it as much as we did.
