THAT COMIC SMELL 17: Music
The new episode of That Comic Smell is now online.
Have a listen at iTunes, Soundcloud and YouTube.
From the website:
"On 3rd week until Christmas, the podcast gave to me... A Brand new episode and as always it's for freeeeeee!
Yes, here at 'That Comic Smell' HQ we are still counting down to Christmas with excitement. To help us wind down to the festive period we thought we would give you some brand new episodes. This is one we did a while back on Music.
In this episode we talk about all the comics that have that musical vibe or were heavily influenced by music or are just straight up tie-ins or stories about musical folks.
We show our appreciation for Shaking Stevens, Adam Ant, Bryan Ferry and many many more.
So delve on in and give this 'note' worthy pod a listen from the only folks who can gladly say that we checked Santa's list twice over with him and most of you were on it... MOST of you. We're looking at you here... Shame.
