The Pub Songs Podcast is a personal podcast of Marc Gunn. It opens with some pub songs from Ireland, Scotland and around the world, song that you may hear in pubs, plus, folk song lyrics and news. It also features poetry, rants, and raves and some of the favorite non-Celtic bands of Marc Gunn.
Pub Songs Podcast
The original idea behind the podcast was to teach people about a variety of pub songs. The first two songs were from that media. But I quickly ran out of time for research. So when I reworked the Pub Songs Podcast a few months later, I decided to make it a personal podcast, one where I could not only rant and rave about my favorite things are talk about things I love, but also where I could highlight music.
In every show, there’s at least one pub song from around the world, though mostly from Ireland and Scotland. Then, since I love many different styles of music, I branch out from there. Some times, I’ll have a song by yours truly, Marc Gunn. Other times, I’ll feature bands I find through my Irish & Celtic Music Podcast or my Celtic MP3s Music Magazine. Most recently, I started recording hour-long shows, highlighting songs that I perform, though not always pub songs. In fact, my musical interests lean more towards ballady music, but I like to think they’re all still fun.
The podcast comes out in seasons with fifteen shows in each season. Listeners can download the show by hand for free, or they can make a donation and download the season that is nicely zipped up for your listening pleasure.
Incidentally, the original format of the Pub Songs Podcast was recently replaced with another podcast I started called Marc Gunn’s Irish Song & Lyrics Podcast.
