Playing Favourites with Joe Boyd Legendary producer of key UK musicians during the 1960’s. This is a longer version of this interview than that broadcast and is without the music because of copyright issues. It includes the true story of Pete Seeger and the “axe incident” at the Newport Folk Festival, how Joe Boyd got into – and out of – scientology, and the story behind the song ‘Duelling Banjos’.

Kim digs up these old boomers and I learn more about the era I grew up in than by being there. Great. He produced my then favourite band The Incredible String Band. I particularly like to hear the longer version of these interviews. By the same token – when I don’t like one I can skip. Pity the music is deleted – Request, please put up a list of the deleted songs on the show notes, one might have been by Nick Drake who I am now curious about.
The other thing that Kim Hill seems to be thriving on are scientists. Some very good ones on her show. For example: Brian Cox
The sad thing is that they don’t archive these shows. Criminal to have the asset, produced on public radio, hidden from future use. The chances are these links are dead by the time you read this.
