Worthy FM’s First Podcast – Competition Winners

A while ago, we got thinking. We record hundreds of hours of audio at every Glastonbury Festival, and most of it goes out on air during the festival itself. After that though, it just sits on our hard discs, unheard and unloved. So, last year, we started putting some ‘Listen Again‘ content on this website, to let people listen to us all year round.

Still though, we could do more. We get loads of news about what’s going on about each year’s Glastonbury Festival in the months before it happens, so why not combine our audio from previous festivals with up to date news about what’s happening at the next one?

Well, that’s exactly what we’re doing.

Every month between now and next June, we’re going to be putting out our own podcast, looking back at previous Glastonburys, and talking about what’s going to be happening at Glastonbury 2013.

There’s a lot of new stuff at this year’s festival to get excited about, and as soon as we can tell you about it, we will.

So, below is our first podcast. For those of you who entered our crew competition, the two winners are announced in there. We’ve also got news about how you can get involved with the Shangri-La area this year, and a new chance for each and every one of you to be heard on air across the Glastonbury Festival site at Worthy FM this June.

There are also interviews with Lady Gaga, Fatboy Slim and Nick Clegg, as well as live music from the Levellers and Stornoway.

You can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes if you want, just search for us in the iTunes store. Otherwise, we’ll be posting them on here every month between now and next June.

This is our first podcast, so it would be great to hear from you about what you like about it, what you don’t like, and what you’d like to hear more of. Leave us a comment below, or on the Worthy FM Facebook page, or tweet us @worthyfm, or just email hello@worthyfm.com.

    Thank you, glad you liked it!

    A 50th at Glastonbury sounds like an excellent idea, especially after 30 years of going there. What day’s your birthday, and what tune would you like us to play for you as a birthday shout out?

    My Birthday is June 19th and I have been giving myself Glasto tickets for years as a gift. (My wife, daughter and sons are always very jealous when I declare selfishly -“I have managed to get a ticket”!

    My two greatest Glasto moments – sorry you have to play both (You’re only fifty once after all)

    Faithless 2010 – “Insomnia” – The incomparable Maxi Jazz holds the Pyramid in his arms declaring it his church and also my own private Glasto discovery Newton Faulkkner (I was there when he first arrived in 2007 at the Acoustic he was outstanding and also understanding when I told him that I was the first Newton of Glastonbury and he could be the second) – Dream Catch Me became an international hit and regularly brings him over to Oz – where he will be coming in April 2013
