Episode 11 – Stuart Clark, Hotpress

Hey look it’s episode #11 of the glorious HeadStuff Podcast. 

This time out, we’re joined by Hot Press deputy editor, living breathing music encyclopedia and all-round charming fellow Stuart Clark who gives us a potted history on his early days as a sea-faring pirate DJ on the legendary Radio Caroline, discusses how Hot Press has changed over the years in a constantly-evolving world and offers his take on the state of the industry in 2015 amongst many other wild and fun stories. 

Before all that, Alan is joined by HeadStuff music editor Dave Hanratty who, in unusually vitriolic mood, spits fire on Taylor Swift, cover bands and whatever else was on his mind when we slapped a microphone in front of him. Enjoy!
