This is a second attempt to record the third edition of Page One. The first version included a hilarious interview with the talented Phil Burgers (aka Dr Brown). Alas, no more.
As it stands, this third edition has something from a wonderful new anthology of Hackney-related poems and stories, something from New Yoik, a story about an otter and THE ABORTION. Plus some great music. As ever.
Incidentally, there is a lot of popping of plosives in this recording, which is because of technical things like microphone volume. Charles Adrian writes: “I did go through the whole thing and fix it, but then something went wrong and all the pops came back. I didn’t have time to do it all again. I can only apologise.”
