London Borough of Charley!

This show centres on Borough in Southwark, one of the oldest parts of the capital. It demands an experienced guide: meet Charley Harrison of London Tailored Tours.

She takes your round the 1,000-year-old Borough Market, a foodie’s paradise, sampling cheese and oysters along the way. After a reflective moment by the River Thames, hear about a unique cemetery and finish off in a pub with a modern twist called The Gladstone Arms, which boasts a connection to recording stars including Ellie Goulding.

Kevin Day: the Lost Tapes

OK, so they’re not tapes and they’re not lost. But this is material that’s never been made public before, recorded at Leicester Square in the heart of London’s West End. Alt. comedy standup and writer Kevin Day – who’s written for legends Dave Allen, Ronnie Corbett and Bob Monkhouse and who writes for popular BBC TV news panel show Have I Got News for You – reflects on how he writes and performs, thinks about the late great comedy impresario Addison Cresswell and gives his judgment on the deceased American shock comic Bill Hicks.

Percussion provided by scaffold operatives and the great London rain!

This is a companion show to the special, Comedy in the Capital: You’re Having a Laugh! 🙂 in which you can hear more thoughts from Kevin Day, as well as from Maddie Campion who’s just starting out in comedy and Scott Denyer who’s taken a step back from the mike.

Year One: The Story so Far..!

To celebrate The London Podcast‘s first anniversary, here’s a compilation which takes you from Shakespeare to the tube, and from Marley to Wogan.

Adrian weaves these excerpts together with one or two anecdotes, giving you ‘the story behind the story’.

It’s just a fraction of the different podcasts made during 2016 which are all still available, and there’s plenty more to come. Subscribe at Londonpodcast.net to avoid disappointment! 😉

Thanks for listening and thanks to all contributors and people behind the scenes providing support and encouragement to help bring the show to 46 countries (and counting) in its first year.

Rational Anthems? A Song for London

What makes a good national anthem? Are they more head or heart? And what would make a great song for London? Alex Marshall, London journalist and author of Republic or Death! Travels in Search of National Anthems, joins Adrian, as well as visiting his roots in the ‘burbs. The people of London get their say, too!

The show is linked from the oldest theatre site in the UK capital to still be in theatrical use, the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. This links to two national anthems with the same tune – those of the UK and Lichtenstein.
