THE STELLAR ISSUE
In yet another singularly non-standard issue for singularly non-standard times Richard Stellar tells the story of how Diane Warren,
Sharon Farber and Gev Miron collaborated on 'I'm Standing with You' - A Musical Collaboration in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Jon gets confused with the semantics of of recent protests, Alan reviews some recent music, Jon reviews a book by a 60s icon, Alan collates covid-19 stories from around the world. Graham reveals the latest from the world of Hawkwind, and we see some massively groovy things from Martin Springett of The Gardening Club. And is there more? You can bet your arse there is...
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive, AND Merrell Fankhauser, but no sign of Strange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, and one from C J Stone, but Mr Biffo, Neil Nixon and Roy Weard, are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and di8bblers who have got the blues (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are listening to the new Bob Dylan album, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!
