Episode 4

Chapter 4. Trevor Horn, Dishwashers, Boy George, Iggy Pop, Princess Stephanie of Monaco.

We recorded this week's episode the day after my birthday, so can you guess what was the first thing Ant wanted to talk about?..

Lemon drizzle mmm... But then we got onto discussing the legend that is Trevor Horn, how our paths have crossed over the years and the creative fallout that has ensued. I've included a link to the album we discussed below.

The diary section this week is a positive smorgasbord of home-plumbing, name-dropping, bad vasectomy jokes and me feeling terrible after ranting at Steve Howe. Quiet week.

Keep the feedback coming peeps, all the links are below.

Stay safe,

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.
Support The Corona Diaries and embrace your inner purple...

I have been tinkering with audio since my mid-teens, recording songs & producing content for friends.

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.
