Excellent podcasts all. But the first seven can't be downloaded, for some reason?

Phil Potter - Mostly vertical, sometimes horizontal 30/05/2009
Three cheers for Fatty Fudge - he may be a form of "lard based confectionery" but he doesn't half knock out some great podcasts.

Looking forward to the June edition. Loved the Ukulele guy song cor blimey. And forgot what a great song Benjimins onion was!

Nat Bowen - St Albans 07/05/2009
I wish to complain that there was no mention of the humble Swedish turnip in the show. Surely no allotment based entertainment show is complete without at least one Rutabaga reference!Great podcast other than that, entertaining and educational.

Never heard the Beer Dear song before loved it I hope that the band decide to do it again.

Keep up the good work Fatty!!!

Spud - Wantage 06/05/2009
What a superb way to while away an hour or so. Keep up the good work and roll on hearing the new CD.

Really loved Alan Draper's Don't Forget the Beer Dear. He also has a link with It Must be time for Bed. I wrote a play (OK Ade a Pantomime!) using a lot of Stackridge songs and needed karaoke tracks for the cast to sing to. Alan provided them and Time for Bed was one of them.

Your fantastic work is greatly appreciated.
