Aaaand – we’re live!

Late in 2012 I had some time off to think about what I would do next. My English podcast didn’t really excite me anymore, instead I focussed on playing and listening to music. Finally one night it dawned on me. Why not combine my interest in music, my love for English with the joy of conducting interviews (which I had done a lot of for the currently offline Kanal 14 podcast).

Backstage in Hamburg is the result and I hope you like it. There’ll be a colorful mix of guests, short cuts and only slightly edited long versions and we’ll add audio feeds as well. And yes, I’ll work on the logo too.

A big Shout Out to Johnny who agreed to be interviewed without seeing any proof – Thank You.
