I asked if anybody would like to hear my solo Mitford Sisters lecture from Thursday at the Duke Of York’s Picturehouse, Brighton, from the pre-interval warm-up and offered to put it out as a mini extra bonus podcast if there was “any demand”. Well, you fell for my evil plan: even one person expressing an interest would have counted as “any demand,” so here it is. Please don’t expect a regular podcast, it’s just me, standing on a stage in front of 250 people, explaining why I love the Mitford Sisters for ten minutes. Thanks to Chris from the Picturehouse for recording it for us through the desk. And thanks to all of you who demanded it enter the public domain. We’re calling it Collings & Herrin Podcast 65a, to avoid confusion. Don’t tell Richard, obviously – he’ll be furious.
Podcast 66 will be out this Friday.
PS: The Mitford symbols are reproduced, without permission, from Letters Between Six Sisters, edited by Charlotte Mosley, but I don’t think they’ll mind, as I must have sold so many copies of this book by recommendation over the last year.
