No plans or script. A simple audio snapshot of the journey on March 17th 2022.

I thought I'd atke a quiet walk along Dingleway in Appleton for old time's sake seeing as my Grandad would have been 110 today!

I thought I'd take a walk around where I grew up and see if it's changed much.

In 1965, Paul Simon temporarily lived in England and played at various small venues; mostly folk clubs.

His song 'Homeward Bound' has long been argued was written at Widnes railway station. Here's a discussion  and analysis of the lyrics.

This is a 'Musical Steps' podcast as I walk along Old Pewterspear Lane in Appleton to the site of the bungalow Beatle George Harrison bought for his parents in 1965.

The bungalow allowed his parents some tranquillity away from the hundreds of fans that swamped their existing Woolton home.

It is at the Appleton bungalow that George Harrison wrote 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

A corresponding video of this walk can be found at the link below.

Experimenting with some new software to make recording different people in different locations easier, I chatted with Gareth Heesom about songwriting, the Mersey gateway bridge, gigging and other such inconsequential topics.

Here's that test recording. It's a bit muddy. And in mono. So, I won't be buying the £160 software.

There is a live 'standing in a beer tent' hand held stereo recording I made of one of Gareth's songs at a recent gig though. So, all is not lost. :)

This is episode 2 of my chat with Junior Dayvis about his single 'Elvis Is King', guitars and about songwriting generally.

I'd organised a phone podcast with Junior Dayvis to talk about his new single 'Elvis Is King', but we got talking about all sorts of things whilst I was setting up the levels etc.

As always, Junior entertained me - and, therefore, I thought it worth publishing the pre-chat we had prior to discussing his new single. That podcast will follow!
