In this special bonus episode of the podcast, Moose, Pete and Shorty attempt to record some quality content, while Dewsbury does his finest village idiot impression. There have been calls to release the unedited audio of this recording, but trust me, it's better this way. The rest of it was just a drunk Yorkshireman rambling on. And on. And on.

Let's face it, recording a podcast live, in front of an audience, after a day spent at the bar at one of our events is only ever going to go one way...

Sep 20, 2018

This week finds our heroes at a bit of a loss. Having had a few busy weeks with plenty to talk about in the podcast, this week there's still a bunch of stuff ticking over in the background, but sales leads and direct debit payment systems are a fairly dry subject.

Undaunted, our heroes dive head first into the latest membership update, and reveal a brilliant/awful/embarrasing* idea for the upcoming Big Bang 2! They also get talking about the latest Bloodstock announcement, which leads on to an ACTUAL conversation about music! On this podcast?! Good Lord!

Along the way they cover tree-shredding, alloy wheels, the worst gig ever, and pose the question "Why do bats hate Moose's box?"

Welcome to episode 21 of the Binge Thinking Podcast. In this episode, Pete has a chat with Ralf Woerdenweber of Gogglebox and his bandmate in Civilian Zen; Keith Hil about how he came to be on Gogglebox, the influences behind Civilian Zen and how they both like to use the band / Gogglebox profile to help charities as much as possible.

This episode of the podcast finds our heroes in good spirits, despite one of them being in need of a good weeks' worth of sleep. Moose and Dews have plenty to go at, so waste no time in talking about dogs being banned from a certain pub chain. Seriously, you'd think after 86 previous episodes they'd just get on with it by now...

Once they actually get down to business, there's the latest membership update, and a discussion about the membership journey, from first hearing about Primordial Radio to becoming a full member. There's also news about actual listening hours, including a surprising detail that prompts a rethink of the way certain things are done.

There's also news of an upcoming station refresh, a new addition to the team, forthcoming new merch and the first teaser of next year's AGM!

Sep 11, 2018

Welcome to episode 20 of the Binge Thinking Podcast. In this episode, Pete has a chat with Halestorm about their new album Vicious, whether or not winning a Grammy has made a difference to their career and how women are reshaping the landscape of the rock and metal community. There's also a chat with James Scarlett who is the organiser of the 2000 Trees and Arctangent Festival.

No seriously. Bec is drying her hair in the background. You can't get the staff these days...

There's BIG NEWS in the podcast this week. Remember that thing that they couldn't talk about a few weeks back? Now they can, although in true radio style they leave it until the end. Before that, there's talk of friends, pipe dreams and news, as well as the latest membership update and the details behind the new merch store.

Dews also compares Primordial Radio to a Japanese Spider Crab. It's weird but it kinda works.

Sep 4, 2018

It's been a while, but they were always going to get back together to record at some point. How often are you supposed to do podcasts anyway?

In this episode the guys catch up with everything that's gone on since they last met, Sweens demonstrates his knowledge of 'street' lingo (being down with the kids and all) and reveals how much he spent on VIP tickets to the Rolling Stones (SPOILER: Sh*tloads). They also discuss comedy injuries and words that should probably be rude but aren't.

There's also a vaguely serious chat about the financial difficulties of being in a band and the state of commercial radio in the UK.

Sep 1, 2018

Following on from part 1 of this podcast, the guys have put 50p in the metaphorical podcast-o-meter, so they can now get down to business.

This time round Moose and Dews discuss the upcoming Big Bang 2, and the effect that ticket sales could have on next years' AGM in April. They also talk about marketing and the latest membership figures, before getting onto the issue of mentoring.

In addition there's a guest appearance from Betsy the dog, and a wholly unwelcome appearance from Max the cat.

Plus there's a surprise delivery that really illustrates what Primordial is all about.

Aug 30, 2018

So here's the thing, with Bloodstock and a whole bunch of specials, we're running out of storage space for the month with our podcast hosting company. It'll renew on Sept 1st, but that meant this week's podcast had to be under 30 mins. Knowing Moose and Dews that just wouldn't happen, so if you're after the latest on the business side of Primordial Radio, we'll be publishing the second part of this podcast on Saturday (Sept 1st).

In the meanwhile this podcast sees Moose and Dews getting into a fairly serious conversation about some stories that have recently been in the news.

 

Aug 28, 2018

It's the unwelcome and unwarranted return of Moose & JRock's Cavalcade of Whimsy... Episode 02!

Aug 23, 2018

In this episode of the podcast Moose tells us about his recent holiday. DO. NOT. LISTEN. IF. YOU. ARE. EMOTIONALLY. DELICATE.

Seriously. This is your last warning.

Following on from the harrowing tale of Moose's holiday, he and Pete get talking about some of the basics of Primordial Radio, including our approach to adverts/ad-breaks (and the fundamental difference between the two) and "The Rules". Sadly, this conversation includes the phrase "laser-focus that goal". We're sorry about that. Look, Moose has had to attend a lot of meeting in his time. You can't blame him for picking this stuff up...

(EDITOR'S NOTE: FYI @ 52 mins my answer would have been "World Domination". Just sayin'... /D)

Aug 17, 2018

Moose is still away in Canadia so while we look forward to the Flight of Dickarus next week, Pete & Dews hold the fort with a surprisingly posivibes attitude, considering this is the eighth (EIGHTH!) podcast they've published this week.

They take a little look back at Bloodstock 2018, but then get down to business with talk of what this means for Primordial Radio and the effect it has had on the number of subscribers/free triallers. *SPOILER 1* It's pretty good news.

They also have news of a recent Primordial investor questionnaire that was sent out. *SPOILER 2* It's also pretty good news.

Aug 15, 2018

Welcome to this special bonus podcast of Primordial Radio at Bloodstock Festival 2018. There's chats with members of the PRfam, Judas Priest, Nightwish, Alien Weaponry, Alestorm, Fozzy, Venom Inc, Feed The Rhino, Wednesday 13, Doro, Voyager, Act Of Defiance, Demonic Resurrection, The Negative Thought Process and just general tomfoolery from the campsite featuring a very, VERY hungover Pete Failey...

Moose is away this week, so Pete Bailey and Dews are left to fend for themselves. It's like two kids being left alone without a responsible adult.

There's a look forward to the upcoming Bloodstock festival, together with the plans for the #PRFam group photos and the plans for broadcasting from the festival.

There's also a look forward to the Big Bang 2 which is coming up in September, together with what seems like an advert for Cotswold Airport. Did you even know there was an airfield in the Cotswolds?

The guys also get talking about feedback from listeners and just how important it is for them - as presenters - on Primordial Radio.

Aug 2, 2018

After escorting the cat to the vet last week, Dews is back with Moose for one week only, as the big Canadian is heading back to his homeland for a couple of weeks very soon.

Wasting no time, the guys get into this latest podcast by talking about the common thread of organisation - or the lack thereof - that seems to follow them around. There's also a serious discussion on how beards can negatively effect the audio recording process.

There's also the latest on the merch situation and the membership update, which leads onto the main topic of conversation for this week; sales.

Jul 26, 2018

Ok, it might not be Moose's love eggs you can hear in the background. It could just possibly be one of his neighbours doing some work in the garden. Maybe. You'll think it's love eggs any time you hear it now though, right?

This week Moose is joined by Positive Pete Bailey to discuss the future, and some of the ace things it has in store for Primordial, like the #PRFam meet-up in Crewe, our impromptu birthday beers and our Halloween event. There's even mention of the initial plans for The Long Road to Brewin' 3!

There's so much to look forward to in the future, and we seem to be on track to get there successfully. This podcast is probably the most #posivibes Primordial Radio podcast yet! Just try not to think of love eggs.

This week the podcast had no title. Well, that's to say it had four possible titles, but no clear winner. So the guys go through them one-by-one and in the process deliver the latest podcast, as well as murdering a classic GnR song.

There's the latest merch update, as well as a membership update, and why the upcoming Bloodstock festival is so important to us. There's also quite a discussion on our own behaviour, and why it's crucial that we - moreso than anyone else - stick to the rules.

Jul 12, 2018

Hello and welcome to episode 78 of the Primordial Radio Podcast. Dewsbury is away on his jollies, swashbuckling his way around the United Kingdom so this week Moose and Pete have a catch up on all things social media, the development of studio 5 and a quick update on membership numbers.

Jul 5, 2018

The latest episode once again finds Moose and Dews philosophising without a licence. Not to worry, Dews had the good sense to cut most of it. Seriously, they went on for ages.

There's the latest membership update, and Moose has an ethical quandary.

There's also listener questions. Shedloads of them, on everything from studios and beer through to shares and the app.

Jun 28, 2018

This week in the podcast, Moose is pulling out of a mental funk; a strange blue mood that seemed to settle over the last couple of weeks. This leads to cod-philosophy between he and Dews, which is about as useful as you'd imagine.

There's also the latest membership update, including plans to grow Primordial, a discussion on swearing and the difference between regular censorship and self-censorship, and the guys discuss a suggestion for some kind of 'love songs' feature in which they both reveal themselves to be immature, sniggering idiots. You knew that already though, right?

Eventually they get on to the main subject for today, that being the changes that Primordial Radio has undergone, and the changes it has caused in both Moose & Dews. It's nowhere near as serious as it sounds.

Jun 21, 2018

This week the podcast starts with an apology for not actually finishing last weeks' podcast. Sorry about that. We'd promise that it won't happen again but... y'know. It will.

Moose & Dews team up once again to bring you the latest developments in the exciting worlds of data compliance! Membership updates! And merch updates! Plus there's a genuinely serious conversation on house rules, as well as an actual plan for the financial side of the business.

To balance the seriousness, Betsy joins in the conversation, and Dews is mauled by the cat. C'est la vie...

Jun 14, 2018

So Download festival 2018 has been and gone, and the guys were there in full force. This week they look back, not so much at the festival itself, but at the coverage they got and what they actually did there, to see what can be improved for next time. There's already plans afoot for Bloodstock...

They also throw some merch ideas around. Turns out some designs are more successful then others, so in true Primordial fashion, they'd rather do more of what works, and less of what doesn't! Seems obvious when you say it, but you'd be amazed how often companies don't do it.

THIS PODCAST WILL BE CONTINUED...

Jun 12, 2018

Welcome to this special bonus podcast of Primordial Radio at Download Festival 2018. There's chats with members of the PRfam, Parkway Drive, Massive Wagons, Avatar, TesseracT, Lawnmower Deth, Shvpes and the guys reflect on everything that's happened in the last two years and where we need to go from here.

Jun 7, 2018

This week Moose and Dews actually achieve their longstanding aim to record a relatively short podcast. With Download festival looming on the horizon there's pre-recording to do and packing that isn't going to do itself. That's not to say that they're going to click the "AUTO" button on the station as they leave for Donington, far from it. This week there's the latest on how exactly they plan to cover the festival, and how exactly YOU can help!

There's also the latest membership update, and - frankly - the most awful introduction to a podcast since podcasting began...
