This Young’uns Podcast is our most intimate yet, as we discuss Michael’s medical problems, David’s backside, and our nostril hair, plus economising has meant that two of the Young’uns have had to share the one bed. David introduces the phone app that has revolutionised his life. We’ve got six weeks out-of-date biting satire. We inadvertently mock the dead. Music comes from Manchester’s new Sunday night folk club, as well as a Halloween based song from some primary school children in Hartlepool.
*”NEVER FORGET” ALBUM LAUNCH*
After ten years singing together, The Young’uns are delighted to announce a very special show to celebrate their ten-year anniversary as a trio and the launch of their new album “Never Forget”. This grand event will take place on Saturday 22nd February 2014 at Old Elvet Methodist Church in Durham. Tickets are £10 + £1 online booking fee. Doors will open at 7pm and the show will begin at 7:30pm with support from very special guests Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar (BBC Young Folk Award Winners 2013) and a very special MC (tba). This is a unique show from the trio. The show will consist of a performance of the new album with comments about the songs. The Young’uns will also share various stories and memories from their ten years together. Just how many skeletons will be released from the closet? Come and find out!

The Young’uns Podcast 127: Hey Kids! Leave That Teacher Alone! (James Fagan interview and music from Melrose Quartet)
Last week it was penguin beating, this week it’s breast beating. David attempts to communicate with a blind dignitary using a secret language. We’ve got more dream analysis. James Fagan talks to us about his journey from medicine to music, and the folk supergroup Melrose Quartet, comprising James along with Nancy Kerr and Jess & Richard Arrowsmith.
This week, the Young’uns embark on a thrilling adventure in Cold War Russia. We ruminate on the sexual antics of Morris dancers at Broadstairs Folk Week. We present a rather unusual theory about toilets. Our gig at the supposedly haunted Black Swan in York appears to have been attended by an ethereal celebrity, while a living celebrity leaves us in the lurch.

Yet again, The Young’uns nearly have a run-in with the police, only this time they implicate this week’s guests, BBC Folk Award nominated Jim Causley, and BBC Folk Award horizon winners Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar. We whisk them off in a car to an Asylum in Whitby where they do a live session, discuss their strange dreams, and take part in a Bruce Forsyth impersonation competition. It’s a very up-close-and –personal Young’uns Podcast; in fact, a lot more up-close-and-personal than perhaps Greg Russell bargained for.
This week’s Young’uns Podcast is rather alarming; find out why. We recieve an odd interruption to our performance at Warwick Folk Festival. We meet a lady who has proclaimed herself the biggest Young’uns fan, although she’s got a strange way of showing it. The Hut People’s Sam Pirt returns to the Young’uns Podcast, but he’s not alone, nor is he featuring in a juice-related capacity. This week we have a live session and interview with the Hut People. Plus: Michael Hughes is having guitar-related issues, we heckle a priest, and there are a few dental-based puns for your delictation.
We were live on “World on 3″ last night on BBC Radio 3. If you missed it you can listen again on the iplayer here:

Music comes from Polish shanty quintet Brasy along with some exciting Brasy related news, and there’s a collaboration with the Young’uns and Marius from Brasy recorded at Northwich Folk Club last weekend.
