The Piley Diary: March 1977

Well the last full month of the 1977 Piley Diary is here already, what a five minute wonder that was! A shame really, as I remember 77 for numerous street parties and Jubilee celebrations, as well as my initial introduction to punk. Alas, none of that has been documented, but on the plus side there is still a lot of important historic information captured... Swimming certificates, teachers strikes (and ill teachers!), piano lessons and lets not forget those all important TV programmes.... Crackerjack, Go With Noakes, Just William, and even a mention of the legendary Tomfoolery!

Podrophenia - Show 13: Covers II - Attack of the Clones

Unlucky for some (YOU mostly!), episode 13 of our Podrophenia podcast hits the virtual shelves today. This show is another 'cover version' special, a theme I think we will always periodically return to, as there is unlimited material.

This time round Mondo and I are joined by a special guest, Neil 'beardy' Beard from Pop Culture Care Package. It's an extended special too, so you get 33% more unscripted ramblings and nonsense... amongst which you can find out which music celeb resembles a face drawn on a slightly withered balloon, Which 1940's American actor hosted a 1990's British game show, which music stars could be cast in Last of the Summer Wine, and much more. There's also the very latest from Piley's Newsround desk....

Oh, and lets not forget those tunes... another 10 classics, all lovingly re-presented in the strangest of styles!
