One of the best conversations we have ever had on this show for sure and to balance things out we also cover an Australian band in Glasgow in the shape of Amyl & the Sniffers.

Since Christmas time can be a tough time at the best of times , I thought I would share a positive and uplifting conversation I had earlier this year with Danny 'The Mad Chef' McLaren where we discuss the great outdoors, meditation, breathing, psychedelics and much, much more. Danny runs a project called 'The Inner Rebellion' which does various things like meditation at sunrise in pollok park , weekends away to Arran and online get-togethers. Danny became famous as the mad chef in Bloc where has Buckfast ice cream became a viral sensation as part of a Vice documentary. He is also a content creator, producer, DJ, chef, and most recently started a BBC pilot show called 'The Scran Van' .

An absolute honour to share this conversation with Gavin Mitchell, who many know will know as Boaby the Barman from Still Game, but that is a very small part of his incredible journey. From a rough working class upbringing he got into acting and comedy and it was an absolute honour as he joined me on an early incarnation of You Call That Radio TV in the early days of lockdown. There was a few technical issues early on in the live show, that Gavin used as platform for a political and educational rant about what was really going on in the world.  This has been the most requested interview to be repurposed for the podcast and despite the time that has passed , Gavin hits the nail on the head multiple times and considering the confusion of the time, it shows how truly on the ball he was , and still is because most of us are still in lockdown , and despite the fact most of us can get a haircut and a freezing outdoor pint, people still vote tory. Enjoy his view on the shambles that was 2020 and hear about what inspired him to become one of Scotland's greatest actors. Support You Call That Radio at or check out our fancy new website at http://YouCallThat.Com . I first seen him on the comedy sketch show Velvet Soup, He also was an important part of Monarch of the Glen and  and has appeared in sitcoms Empty, Happy Hollidays and You Instead.On stage, Mitchell has played the male lead in Casablanca: The Gin Joint Cut, a spoof of the Humphrey Bogart film Casablanca, which has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe. And toured Britain, Paris and Barbados. And the record breaking run of 51 shows of ‘Still Game’ live at the Glasgow Hydro, to some 510,000 people.A true legend who is also an integral part of the music scene where he inducted David Bowie into the Barrowland Hall of Fame on a memorable night that my band The Girobbaies were luckily to be involved with. He also recently expertly hosted Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5's new album album launch for 'The Difficult Number 2' .  He also played a recurring character in crime drama The Field of Blood.

We use the word 'Legend' too much but in this case there is no more apt word. Bassist of Killing Joke, Founder of The Orb, In a band with Paul McCartney. Produced an incredible discography that includes some of my favourite all time records such as 'Urban Hymns' by The Verve, 'The Endless River' by Pink Floyd and 'HMS Fable' by Shack to name just a few. He has also worked with The Charlatans, Dido, Crowded House, Embrace, The Cult, U2, Shed Seven, Erasure and Bananarama plus many more. It was an honour to chat with Martin 'Youth' Glover about his incredible career and his current projects which includes his art, writing, collaborations and the brilliant trance music he makes from his 'Space Montain' studio in Spain which also hosts an annual , interactive festival. I was delitghted to find a witty, humble and artistic man who gave loads of great advice and positive vibes. This show was previously only available on Youtube but I know many of you audio podcast listeners prefer this format so while I work on some new Jackal Trades/ Girobabies music we are going to cherry-pick some of the greatest chats over the last few months that we did live on youtube and the main man Morphamish has given the audio some TLC to make it brighter in the mix and mastering.

I have been neglecting this audio podcast as You Call That Radio turned it`s attention to 270 live streams since lockdown began. We are sorry for slacking. We are back and promise to stay back in the audio world of podcasts regularly. I have a vault of amazing interviews but this has been top of my list for a while. I believe it was early March 2020, Nobody was sure if covid was even gonna be that big of a deal. I spoke to Neil 'The Wee Man' Bratchpiece about our concerns or , lack of, plus we had a great chat about his career as youtube viral sensation , his stand up comedy, his writing career, acting, battle rap plus his career in Insane Championship Wrestling to mention just a few topics. Please ignore all mention of gigs we were promoting as the pnaet is still cancelled as far as I am aware. Including me if some of my chat is taken the wrong way in this episode. As well as Neil, today we also have a special Midnight Inventions pitch with Winter Water CEO John McCrory plus I share with you a song that myself and Jo D'arc made about what the last year has meant to us.

The audio podcast had to take a back seat in order to focus on You Call That Radio TV which managed around 200 shows as a live internet TV show. I know many of our patreons were missing the audio podcast, and I was too, so will be doing my best to keep the audio shows regular in 2021 alongside the visual stuff which you can find at . I thought we should start Season 2 the same way we started Season 1 with an Ask Me Anything and a couple of surprises thrown in for good measure. As always this show would not be possible without the technical expertise of Morphamish and the generousity of our patreons at . You can also donate at if you want to help us build this hing.

We discuss conspiracy theories namely coronavirus conspiracy theories and other conspiracy theories and other stuff and things and that.
