All posts for the month May, 2022


In this episode, Brian chats to Joe Cairney of Comedy of Errors after their triumphant, or triumphal even, gig at Fusion 3.5. He may, or may not, give away some exclusive news, but our hearts go out to him after the loss of a good friend. Hugs, Joe. We find time to play a couple of tracks from the marvellous Fanfare & Fantasy album, which Brian bought on vinyl. With English money. For logistical reasons the tunes you hear may well not be directly from his vinyl copy. But don’t tell anybody.
