Back to NOW - We Are One!

The podcast that celebrates the variously compiled world of pop is one year old.Over the past twelve months, thirteen wonderful guests have joined me to open up gatefold sleeves, slip out cassette inlays and flick through CD booklets of their chosen compilation albums.And in doing so, we’ve not only shared some great musical memories, we’ve also explored the shifting pop cultures of the past four decades and have recognised how these various artists collections do indeed stand as fond time capsules for our journeys through life.So for this episode, here are some memorable moments - a compilation, if you will - from the first year of Back to NOW - including some previously unheard and extended clips.In this anniversary episode, find out which NOW album Bob Stanley thinks was his first, the line up for Band Aid 1974(!), the Rebel MC's 'must have' items on tour and (in all its glory) the full horror Womble Hysteria!Don’t forget you can hear the full episodes now at your favourite podcast sites and join in the conversations with myself Iain at the Poprambler Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.I would like to say a massive thank you to all of my guests who’ve taken time to join me this year. It’s been privilege and a joy sharing in your musical journeys and as they say, we couldn’t have done it without you.And to everyone that has listened and engaged in the podcast - thanks for all of your support and choosing Back to NOW!The series now continues and I look forward to more guests, memories and stories coming very soon. Thank you everyone and stay tuned for more variously compiled pop!
