It’s the fifteenth of the month… and you know what that means. This is the show I’ve had planned for ages; it being in May, it’s two years since I first made an Ogg-Cast. Hence, I planned the whole lot round highlighting those shows that had been (and, in some cases, gone) before – The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, obviously, but also Metal Shrine and Bruce Dickinson’s Radio 1 Rock Show – as well as those that followed in my wake, namely the Spooky Hobo Metal Corner, the Ominous Blood-Cast and the Shield Of Oak Show. There’s also a bit of prompting for a future show from Ann Sulaiman, who made a first edition of the Me(n)tal Meltdown Podcast between me recording this show and it actually being uploaded.
However, with the death of Claude Choules on 5th May, the “Tribute” in the title took on a whole new meaning. No combat veterans of World War I are left alive, and so can no longer tell their tales. I’ve included some samples of their stories from the excellent BBC mini-series, The Last Tommy, for some very special guest appearances on the show that are now from beyond the grave. I thought it only fitting to pay special respects to the hardship and sacrifice they all went through.
And the final tribute goes to someone else who is particularly special.
Now all you have to do is listen to the show for yourselves. If you haven’t done so before, this one is slightly less reflective of the series as a whole, being effectively bolted together from pieces of other people’s shows, or at least with tracks designed to reflect the content of those shows rather than a typical one of mine that I’ve haphazardly thrown together.
