EP100 - Ann Weller - Podcast Centenary Celebration! - ”In the warmth of your smile, lighting up my day…”
So here we are - Episode 100 of The Paul Weller Fan Podcast - who would have thought it?
Firstly - thanks to you for your support , your shares and your thoughts - its all helped to get us to number one on iTunes and to grow listeners to the podcast over the past 18 months.
Thanks to my wife and family for letting me do this thing - evenings, weekends and holidays spent creating something I hope is truly unique and special to fans of Paul Weller.
To all the guests from past and future - it would be nothing without you - your honesty, warmth, stories and generosity is hugely appreciated.
And of course thanks to Paul Weller! For the music - the live gigs - the story arc of 50 years from the creation of The Jam with Steve Brookes to now - and here's hoping for some time with Paul in the future for what will undoubtably be an epic interview at some point in the future right ?
Episode 100 - takes us to Ripley - the Surrey village that is home to Paul’s studio Black Barn - and also home for Paul’s mum - Ann Weller.
I always had Ann in mind as our centenary episode guest as was absolutely delighted to get a YES to my request - INCREDIBLE!
Ann is not just Paul's mum - but she has been a key player in his story from The Jam to now - together with John, her dear late husband , Paul and Nicky’s father, who managed The Jam, The Style Council and Paul Solo for over 30 years, until his sad passing in 2009.
This was an absolute honour to spend time with Ann chatting over a cuppa and scone and a very special chat…
I hope you enjoy - and thanks again for listening to our journey so far...
