Collings & Herrin: Tugwell Tapes Part 1

Bonus! Pretend Podcasts! The Tugwell Tapes Pt 1: Thanks to podcast-counting buccaneer archivist Graham Tugwell, we have unearthed the whole of the Collins & Herring Pretend Podcasts, which weren't podcasts. It's the weekly newspaper review Andrew and Richard used to do at weekends on 6 Music nearly five years ago, but with the indie music filleted out. They began in November 2006, when we were all young and excitable and suitable for family listening, and were made available to listen to for a week each. What you're hearing is the water-birth of the Collings & Herrin Podcasts (it was this item that we were attempting to reproduce when we began podcasting in March 2008). There are three here, from November 26, December 10 and December 17, 2006, and among those things discussed in a genial and silly manner are: Peter Hitchens, leader of the opposition David Cameron, the concert for Princess Diana, Guardian wallcharts, the news that Lembit Opik had started going out with a Cheeky Girl, Britney's pants and Russell Howard seeing Big Ben for the first time. Innocent times.
