The prefab four legend in all his guises with friends and colleagues thrown in for good measure. Bask in a hour of tracks from and related to the comic song writing genius  – not all written by the great man as mentioned in the show intro!

    Hi Jason,

    Really like the Neil Innes show – I didn’t realise he was so well connected!! Love the mix into Beggin’

    A bit dissapointed about no raggy dolls – but can’t have everything 😉

    I like your shows. It’s hard to find sources that do this genre so well.

    When are you going to do The Strange Brew Live? Where you broadcast live with bands playing live stuff – maybe one day.

    P.S you got any Amazing Friendly Apple?
