Interview special 8 – progressive rock band, The Danglers

I was delighted to receive these through the post! (Click to enlarge)

The Danglers were extremely generous, intelligent and fun guests.

We talked about Yes, The Danglers, music technology, the state of the music industry and many other fascinating topics in an engrossing and entertaining interview.

It’s a little longer than the usual podcast episodes but I can promise you that it’s well worth listening right to the end!
