Welcome to the Field Day Podcast

“It’s quite an unstable industry.”

The business of pop music is precarious, but perhaps not as doomed as the traditional heavy industry of Britain. In our current episode, writer and psychogeographer Karl Whitney tells a story of unlikely successes and predictable busts in the last few decades of British life. We join him on his travels through the history of British pop music and learn about Hit Factories, his new account of those travels.

This episode is presented in association with the Dublin Review of Books. We heartily recommend the drb to supporters of Field Day. In the words of Seamus Deane: “The drb sustains a level of commentary on Irish and international matters that no other journal in Ireland and few elsewhere can reach.”

    all of these clips would seem to come from Pathe; is there anything from Movietone?
