Show 128 is my 8th podiversary show, celebrating eight years since I published Show 0 on 14th July 2006.

It’s A Frog’s Life Acoustic Podcast Show 127 – Catching up

Show 126 – Ding dong

Show 126 – Ding dong – No, this isn’t Avon calling, it’s a reference to a certain 52 second song that reached No 2 in the UK singles chart this week and which the controller of BBC Radio 1 didn’t have the guts to play in full. Yes, you might have noticed that Margaret Thatcher has passed away, and this show will be paying its own tribute with a very special song from Chumbawamba.

I’m no longer going to apologise for the long breaks between shows. New editions of the It’s A Frog’s Life Acoustic Podcast will come out as and when I can find time to do them. If you’re having withdrawal symptoms and want to hear my voice on a regular basis then you should be listening to the twice-monthly Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight!
