Few years back BBC staff went on strike due to making Redundancies whilst advertising the roles externally. BBC staff rightly went on strike including lauren Laverne from her 6 music show. Tim Burgess for reasons best known to himself decided it would be ok to cross a picket line and do the show.
Whilst I abhor his decision to do that, I equally Find it difficult to swallow Jason “right on” Williamson’s support to Burgess through playing ball with him on his listening parties. Williamson’s from Nottingham who as a city have long standing affiliations with that sort of behaviour so maybe he thinks it’s ok. To me he’s a hypocrite, maybe I’m looking way to much in to this and apologies as it’s not the first time I’ve bleated about Burgess I just find the whole thing hugely false.
i kinda want to give him the benefit of the doubt, so wouldnt mind knowing the other side of the story - certainly the way that report is written its not a nice reflection of him...When I first read your post, I thought you meant "do the show" as in "appear as a guest", not present the whole bloody thing. Strange move and it doesn't seem to sit right with the impression he gives off these days at all.

Me too. Has been ages
To be fair this thread and spotify keeps me slightly in the loop.
I am missing gigs so much now. Everything else I can deal with.
Thing I miss the most (apart from family ofc)
Really regret any that I sacked off in the past and would think twice in the future!
Excellent new standalone single from Porridge Radio
Last band I saw before it all went to shit!
