In Lummy Days this month we spend an hour in the Stackridge menagerie amongst penguins, hedgehogs and elephants. James Warren reflects on working with Beatle's producer Sir George Martin and Stackridge guitarist Andy Davis talks about how he came to play on John Lennon's Imagine album. As an added treat we will catch up with Stackridge historian, biographer and archivist, Ade Macrow.

So I actually haven't listened to any of the podcasts until today as I was driving home from college for the Easter weekend. I listened to two of them and they were GREAT!! Great job guys!
I look forward to listening to more of these.

Lummy Days is the best thing ever to come out of the interweb. What a bloody amazing programme this month. Glorious songs, informative snippets and fine ecentric humour all woven around Stackridge the best band ever to exist on the planet.
And what a great discovery Mr Fudge, The Fore absolutely loved their stuff, certainly a band to watch out for on the gig circuit.
Can't wait to see what amazing rabbits you pull out of your podcasting hat next month. It certainly is getting better every week. Keep up the good work.
