So many ways to hear my new radio show!

Hello team

Some of you still don’t know that I know host a late night phone in show 5 nights a week! Incredible, but true. Almost as if talkRADIO haven’t spent any money on advertising. Never fear, I am here to tell you all the ways you can listen to it.

LIVE

The show goes out 5 nights a week, Monday to Friday, between 10pm and 1am. The BEST slot in the schedule as far as I’m concerned. You can listen live via the talkRADIO website. Go to www.talkradio.co.uk and there will be a handy button at the top of the page. The show isn’t on FM but IT IS on DAB. You may need to do a deep retune of your DAB to get it, please check your manuals. You can also download a handy talkRADIO app for iPhones and Androids. Get it. It’s free. And good.

I also stream most shows on Periscope. www.periscope.tv/iainlee is my Peri address. Follow me for random other things I do on there as well.

LISTEN AGAIN

It is a piece of pish to listen to an entire show after it has aired. Go to www.talkradio.co.uk click on ‘RADIO’ then ‘SCHEDULE’ then pick a date, scroll down, find my show and hit ‘LISTEN AGAIN’. It comes up in 30 minute chunks but it will play through continuously. Here’s a short video walking you through the procedure.

PODCASTS

We put out 1 or 2 pods a day. A best of that runs at about 90 minutes, and if we have a guest, that will go out as well. You can get it from your usual pod providers, just type in ‘Iain Lee talk’ and it should show up. Here are some links to help you find it.

YouTube

I often post videos of particularly funny bits on my YouTube channel. The channel address is www.youtube.com/MrIainLee Here’s an example of the stuff I post, an hilarious game called ‘Tastes Like Food’

 

Soundcloud

We will often post clips of the show on SoundCloud. Here’s an example from a recent show when some ‘lads’ phoned up to talk to Cundy and Goldstein on talkSPORT. The muppets.

I think that’s it. I really appreciate your continued support for my show, it means so much to me. May I humbly ask that if you find a video or clip of mine you enjoy, then please do share it? It all helps raise my profile, increase my audience and make my job all the more secure. Thanks for reading and sharing this post.

Mike Love

I am a huge Beach Boys fan. Easily one of the greatest groups of all time. I’ve been lucky enough to interview Brian a couple of times. Once he was disinterested and giving one word answers, while the first time he was engaged, honest and quite rude about Al Jardine! This goes against one school of thought that says Brian is ALWAYS polite in interviews (sorry Smilers, it simply aint true). Anyway, both times were a huge thrill and I was dead happy.

I’ve been trying for ages to get an interview with Mike Love, the lead singer and lead lyricist of the Boys for quite some time but he has always proved elusive. I met him briefly backstage at the Royal Albert Hall, and he couldn’t have been nicer. I was inspired to write an article for Record Collector magazine suggesting that popular folklore had got it wrong and that Mike wasn’t the villain in the BB story. So many people seem to hate him and raise Brian to a saintlike status. Both are human. Both are flawed. Both have made mistakes. Both have also contributed to my life in immeasurable ways with their music and lyrics. I am deeply grateful to both men.

Mike has a book out and it’s a cracking read. Because of this, I was able to get him to call my show one evening and chat to me for almost half an hour. Sure, he told a couple of old stories, and no one in the UK knows what Full House is or what a John Stamos does, but, but, but….I think I managed to get him to answer a few new questions that he hadn’t been asked before. Come on, how many times in an interview has he been asked if it’s true he taught Dennis Wilson about cunnilingus?

I enjoyed it, and I think he did too. I had so many people get in touch afterwards saying it totally changed their opinion of him. Hey, he’s messed up but who hasn’t? He’s been in showbiz for over 50 years, so of course so it would be impossible for him not to have made some missteps. Give My Regards to Broad Street and Press To Play are two examples of McCartney getting it wrong.

Here’s the interview. If you enjoyed it, please do subscribe to my podcast on iTunes by clicking on this link https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/late-nights-with-iain-lee/id1090367473?mt=2 or searching your usual podcast provider.
