Happy New Year and welcome back to Oh! Brother. Our first episode of 2023 sees us welcome John Robb onto the show. Amongst the topics discussed, a guide on how to make your own bass, how to lose your own bass, and nostalgia has tainted the sacking of Rome. Enjoy!
To celebrate the holiday season, it's a festive Q&A this week on Oh! Brother, chaired by the inimitable dannyno, Fall expert and enthusiast. The guys try their best to answer questions about events they were definitely present at, and have even written about, and in some cases, actually remember. Merry Christmas from all of us at Oh! Brother.
