Episode 32

Chapter 32. Does my bum look small in this?

You are probably wondering about the title for Chapter 32?

All I can say is it went a bit wrong when I happened to say something a tad left field in a break in the recording of this weeks episode. It will all become clear as you work your way through...

For the main order of business we pick up the h Band story, and we just about get to a conclusion whilst detouring slightly (you know the kind of thing, revelations of recordings, the renaming of bass players and Mr B's dark and fearsome aura).

It's also a monstrous bit of diary this week, including an entry from one of my favourite places on the planet.

And I started by exclusively announcing something that by now you are already aware of, and so isn't exclusive at all...

...well it made sense at the time.

Love & implants,

About the Podcast

The Corona Diaries
Steve Hogarth
Lead singer of Marillion, father, hippy, punk, soul singer, progressive rockstar (wtf!), defender of the faith, voice of reason in a world gone crazy...

...and now podcaster.

Join me as I talk about my life and what is rambling around in my head.

Along the way I will focus on some of the stories that have shaped my career and my life, as well as reading from my diaries and offering my take on the wider world.

Stay safe,


P.S I began this journey just as CoVid-19 took hold and changed our lives, possibly forever, so it seems apt to reference that in the naming of the podcast.

Post university I embraced the world of retail, firstly in supermarkets and later in & around the music instrument industry.

After 20 years or so, I took a sideways step into podcasting and began a venture called ashortstories, which helps in the development & production of podcasts for anyone that has a story to tell.
