Episode 74

Chapter 74. Flash as a rat with a gold tooth.

Not only was I in the room at the time, but I have also listened back to Chapter 74 and I am still not entirely sure how it happened.

74 was supposed to be about Radiation, Ant had flagged that as being the plan and we had gone as far as stating for the record we were going to stop waffling and get to the good stuff.

I am still at a loss therefore to understand how we spent the next 29 minutes talking about Holidays in Eden. Oh well.

74 is also another one of those ‘a year in the life’ diary sections as it covers all the entries from 1996. We talked a little about that as well. I didn't write a whole lot that year. Must've had a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock...

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.

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.
