Featuring Delete the Banjax

The third and final podcast from the Edinburgh Fringe. We’re back at the Pleasance, although the previous few weeks are begining to take their toll. It’s a more of a laid back affair as we attempt to remember, and review, all the shows we’ve seen since the last podcast. As ever, we play a variety of music to keep us awake, and there’s a chat with Dan, Caroline, Gareth and Sam from the wonderfully funny Delete the Banjax whose Delete the Banjax… and you! show is on in the Attic at the Pleasance Courtyard until the 30th of August.

Edinburgh Man on the Fringe #2

Featuring Dave Hill

The second podcast from the Edinburgh Fringe. Gordon and I have moved next to an ice cream van, under the shadow of a giant inflatable purple cow.

We talk about more fringe shows and play some indie rock! There are some rambling reviews for shows including Jean Abreu and 65daysofstatic’s Inside, Robin Ince’s Carl Sagan is Still My God and Robin Ince and Michael Legge’s Pointless Anger, Righteous Ire. We also pick out some shows that we’d like to see before the end of the festival, and talk about Gordon’s regular appearance as Audience Member Number 1 in the Collins and Herring Podcasts.
But the real treat on this show is an interview with comedian and rock god Dave Hill who has two shows at the fringe: Big in Japan and the Dave Hill Explosion. Many, many thanks to Dave for taking time out from a hectic Fringe to have a chat in an attic high above the Pleasance.

Edinburgh Man on the Fringe #1

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Jonny and guest co-host Gordon present the first of three special shows from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe! We struggle with background noise and a wobbly table on a wobbly floor. Every time someone walks by the microphone almost falls onto the ground, but we still play some great podsafe music. Some tracks are new, some tracks have been featured on the podcast before, and some are inspired by the Fringe itself.

It’s all a bit different from normal. There’s a still lot of random chatter, although this week it is mostly all about the Fringe. We had hoped to do some interviews, maybe accost the odd Fringe performer as they passed by, but in the end we just chat and play music. If you’re in Edinburgh this month we have what might be (loosely) considered reviews, and also some recommendations. If you’re not in Edinburgh hopefully there’s still be something you might find interesting. If nothing else there’s some good music.
