A Ride in Border Country

In the last show of the summer season, Jack goes for a leisurely spin around the Welsh borders with local cyclist Owen Davies as his guide, from Abergavenny to Monmouth and back, past Raglan Castle (pictured above), Rockfield recording studios and the unlikely Welsh residence of the notorious Nazi politician Rudolf Hess.

    Nice end to the “summer season”. Rockfield Studios is to Monmouth what Hansa Tonstudio was to Berlin or Sun Studio is to Memphis. Check out this link if you’re interested in finding out more about the history of this legendary studio…http://www.philsbook.com/rockfield.html .

    BTW I have no connection to Rockfield other than a buddy recorded there in the 80′s when he was a member of Simple Minds, would dearly love to record there but it’s way out of Rose Room’s price range nowadays! Great podcast, look forward to the autumn/ winter season.
