Can't say I've learned a lot of new things out of this podcast, I'd say I learned nothing at all. But it's nice of course to hear (or read) Mark anyway.

Many thanks Kris!    I loved listening to this podcast, even though I have mainly heard it all before.  The thing is, I am absolutely addicted to MKs speaking voice, it's so warm and it doesn't matter what he is talking about -  it could even be something like reciting the telephone directory -  and I am hooked!    ;D

Spotify podcasts are still not available in Russia, so I had to resort to the Transcript. It's funny that the interviewer remembered Chet Atkins and guitar on the sofa story incorrectly and Mark had to correct him. The only thing, unfortunately, missing from this interview is the radio story, what a letdown :lol

MK just has 'that' voice. One can easily relax listening to him speaking or singing a song!!

Seems like either this is a couple of years old (Presenter states mark is 70) or his research is badly wrong!

I think it was recorded well before. It's more astonishing to me that pretty much every interview with Mark is a set of the same old questions and same old answers over and over again, each time I find something new is like a breath of fresh air to me. And it's not like Mark can't answer more questions, but nobody asks them.

But that's the price fans got to pay for Mark wanting to be away from the spotlight. Nobody's interested in his life as much as it deserves and of course, the chance that the interviewer would know more than a Wikipedia article is minuscule.

It's a job to explain but you know what I mean with regards MK's voice.....

Wikipedia is not always correct, of course.    Journalists still copy and paste the same incorrect information from Wikipedia that MK was raised in Blyth, which is about 12 miles from Gosforth, where he was actually raised.   MK has often told the story about walking to school down Salters Road to Gosforth Grammar and looking into the window of a guitar shop on the way.  He couldn't have done that if he lived in Blyth.    I blame it on lazy journalism.

I always wonder why journalists don't ask about new songs. A new album is released and there are no questions about new songs. I do not understand this.
