Show Notes

In a packed programme, the duo move from an update on the secret rock connections of Harrogate  to a celebration of the life of Lawrence Ferlinghetti, co-founder of San Francisco's groundbreaking City Lights bookshop. Charles leads an update on the latest Government funding for beleaguered cultural organisations and Graham reveals his involvement in the new documentary about Harrogate-born music documentary filmmaker Tony Palmer. Charles reminisces about seeing Kelly Jones solo at York Barbican, as a new Stereophonics show is announced, speculates over the future of independent shop culture, and reacts to the National Theatre's debut film in lockdown, Romeo And Juliet. Oh, and here come vaccine passports...or not.
