Celebrating twelve years of Podrophenia with a double whammiversary and Billy Reeves of THOTHG

It's a double dollop of doings as we celebrate 12 years *gulp* of Podrophenia...

Part one is a pop quiz with tunes fitted around a mystery theme - who'll be first to crack the clues and unravel the reveal!

Part two - Buckle up and behold as Billy Reeves day-trips to Rossi's in Southend for a seaside meet with Piley and Mondo, wherein he tries an out-size custard tart - and relays inspirational tales of how his latest project The Helicopter of the Holy Ghost came to be. An incredible story of an amazing album of beautiful songs.. as featured in The Guardian here...
Along the way we learn about the early days of The Darkness, how Billy hooked up with Sophie Ellis-Bextor, why did the Primals move to Brighton - which band made him a coma tape - how many times is he in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles - and why the parakeets on TheHOTHG album cover? Musically we spin in a playlist of Brother Reeves' greatest hits, highlights and THOTHG tracks
