You Call That Radio?

The meaning of life, the art of everything and sometimes hings about crisps. A mixture of interviews, rants and skits squished together with music. From the deep talk to the daft chat featuring artists and personalities from Glasgow and beyond.

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 youtube.com/youcallthatradio . I thought we should start Season 2 the same way we started Season 1 w...
